APO DP integrates Sales, Purchasing and Inventory modules. If i would like to know my current month demand? how can i know that?
1. Sales Order Quantity from SD
2. Planned independent requirements from MRP (which will create Purchase Orders i guess, which will reduced with Good Receipt creation)
3. Material Reservation
I thinking above 3 will give current demand. Can any body explain in detail about those. Is there any other components for Demand other than these 3? is material reservation comes under IM? How planned inde. requirements will be generated( i know because of MRP runs, what made MRP Runs generating Planned Independent requirements, what exactly meanig of this.)
Strictly speaking i would like to know more about Demand Management. How can i measure Demand for my company. I waould like to know all possible options.
Thanks in advance.
