APO DP - lifecycle planning


I am using APO DP V5.

I am forecasting at a monthly level, then performing time based disaggregation down to weeks.

So, when performing forecasting using lifecycle planning, the 'phase in'/'phase out' profiles are of course working at a monthly level.

But in fact I want to be able to model the 'phase in'/'phase out' <u>within</u> a month, ie at <u>weekly</u> level.

So, for example, suppose at monthly level, the 'phase in' results in a forecast qty of 0 for month n, and 100 for month n1. But in month n1 I actually want to see quantities of 25, 50, 75, 100 at the weekly level.

Any ideas about how I could do this? I'm thinking about careful use of time based disaggregation factors for instance.

Thanks, Bob Austin, Atos Origin
