My scenario deals with Stock Keeping Units (SKUs). The client owns the technology and have the vendors manufacture all the parts( I guess the client supplies these parts as well) and then the client sells them. He uses SKUs for his planning. The finished good,a SKU, has many components and hence there is a BOM. Now, the forecasting has to be done for the SKUs and the components involved.
Here are the questions:
1. Can I use the word BOMs for SKUs?
2. How is SKU planning handled? I am sure this is a common scenario.
