How to generate Dependent Demand for aggregates in DP

Dear All,

I am in the midst of DP implementation at one of our client.

Business Scenario: Plant A- Car and Plan B - Engine

I would like to know :

1) How do I generate Engine Demand Plan wrto Car Demand using DP only?

2) Do I need to know 2 diffrent planning areas?

Request you to suggest on ABAP deveopment reqd or DP BOM and its functionality or If I maintain Parent Child relationship in CVCs , then is it possible to use any macro functions which will copy the Final demand of Car in Engine Planning Book against 'ENGINE' as characteristic.

Or else request you to suggest a new approach to this solution.

Points will be rewarded.

Thanks & Regards,

Ashok

    Hi Ashok,

    My suggestion would be to go for the option of Forecasting with BOM.

    Request you to go through the following SAP help link

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_scm41/helpdata/en/8f/9d6937089c2556e10000009b38f889/frameset.htm

    For any queries feel free to revert.

    Regards,

    Ankur

    Dear Ashok

    Your requirement can be met using DP BOM. I am not sure about parent child CVC's , but DP - BOM should work.

    You need to first create and activate PPM/ PDS for DP with usage D (BOM Demand Planning).

    Assign it to model and create a planning object structure with DP BOM relevant.

    Create the master and CVC based on MPOS

    Create a PA with 2 different KF( one for finished product, another for dependent BOM). Initilize the PA and version.

    Config the forecast settings for PA.

    Pl see through the below link

    Rewards points if it helps

    Thanks Naveen, Ankur for your replies.

    Since we are implementing Consensus based Demand Planning, I feel the solutions proposed by you though useful will be too much for this scenario.

    I have a solution in my mind. Kindly let me know your opinions on the same.

    I maintain Engine Part number as one of the Characteristics of Car ( finished good) in MPOS.

    Now when I release the consensus demand plan ( KF) back to ERP system at finished good level, Can I copy the same demand against Engine Chracteristics ( Part number) against Engine Dependent Demand KF in same planning Book.?

    If this is feasible option, kindly give me some tips on such macros.

    Thanks once again.

    Regards,

    Ashok
