APO Demand Planning -batch job with unusual program name

Hi Gurus,

I started learning APO demand planning recently.

There is a background job that runs and populates consensus forecast before it pushes the data to ECC. What I observed is- in the job steps there is a weird program name and I couldn't figure out what it does. I checked with Basis Lead and he has no idea. Unfortunately there isn't much documentation.

Can someone please explain me what this does? (below screen shot)

    Hi Arjun,

    In DP and SNP there're many generated programs.
    If you check it in SE38, the first lines shows which template is used for the base of generation.
    I can tell you the program usage if you paste those first lines for me.

    Please also refer to my blog post https://blogs.sap.com/2014/12/31/error-generating-program/

    I think it will help you to understand more about this - however it may be too technical for end users.

    You can also re-generate or reset timestamp of these programs using report /SAPAPO/TS_PSTRU_GEN

    Best Regards,
    Ada
