Hello all,

we in demand planning used to enter demand at 4 series item code i.e. FERT level, Now we also need to enter the demand for sub-assembly (3-Series) as this assemblies get dependenet requirement from FERT item as well as direct requirement from market, We need to club both of the requirements in Demand planing and build a consensus.

Can we have anything transcational so that we can able to enter demand for 3series, such as in SAP R/3 we are able to enter PIRs can we have same thin in APO or we can map samething in APO through addition of characters and Key figures.

Please suggest..

    Hello Amol -

    you can not have the PIR functionality in APO (correct me if i am wrong APO Gurus). in order for you to show a level below the FERT in DP why dont you go ahead and use DP BOM functionality that will help you in working with the 4series as well as 3 series.

    hope this helps.

      Thank You both of you..

      Exploring DP BOM will take some time for me, till date i have created 4 Series Material code (FERT) for two 3 Series item codes as BOM and then created CVC for the same 4 series and extended the same material to zone, so that demand can entered to material in planning book.

      Will it create any sizing problem or anything which will hamper the system performance.

      Thank you in advance..
