Restrict planning in DP.

Hi,

I need your inputs in coming to a conclusion.

Currently we have around 200 locations in APO. Out of these 200 we use around 120 for forecasting in DP.

Is it possible to make some provision where I can restrict the remaining 80 locations from being planned.

Meaning, for eg - if I run statistical forecasting for all 200 plants, only 120 those we use should have a statistical forecast generated and the remaining 80 should not though being added in the selection condition.

I know this is weird question. Hope I will get some valuable inputs.

    Hello,

    I would just use 2 different selection profiles, 1 for these 80 plants, the other for the 120 where you need statistical forecast. These selection profiles can be used by the background processing, too.

    If you don't want to change inserted plants in the the profiles all the time you need some indicator "stat forecast" within the CVC (characteristic combination) and use this new indicator as selection.

    This would be a standard solution without much changes to do.

    Hi,

    After the stat forecast has ran for all 200 plants, you could run a clean macro to clear the stat forecast for the 80 plants which you don't require any stat forecast.

    You could create a selection profile with the 80 plants in & assign it to the clear stat forecast job.

    Hi,

    If you want to create just a single selection only, you can just exclude the plants for which you don't want to generate the forecast in the selection id.

    Thanks,
