Hello All,

One query from my end regarding PLM.

After creating a new product, do we need to create all relevant objects (example: Customer Product, Location Product etc before we can proceed for Product Life cycle?

What i did was - created a new Product, assigned it to an existing Product, Ticked Consider Lifecycle in all forecasting model. But it did not work and nothing was seen for the new product.

Like we had Realignment in SAP APO, similarly, just by giving reference product in IBP, are all the relevant planning objects created automatically in IBP?

Regards,

A.Basu.

Hi A.Basu,

For the new created product, you need to create the respective planning objects using key figure upload or the copy operator or you have created the planning objects in Microsoft Excel. Please see below link for all the prerequisites of Manage Product Life Cycle.

https://help.sap.com/viewer/feae3cea3cc549aaa9d9de7d363a83e6/1802/en-US/65b28e570e366d10e10000000a441470.html


And if your forecast mode does not provide any output for the new product, another you need to check is the Phase-in start time. If the Phase-in Start time is in future, the forecast will not be generated till the Phase-in Start time.

Hi Gabby,

Thanks for the response. I have gone through the Prerequisites in the link mentioned.

Just a query for the point about new planning objects: do we need planning objects like Customer Product, Location Product etc which we can create through Excel or do we need any other planning object? I want to know that what can we upload via Key Figure Upload?

Also, the Phase-in start date provided in the forecast model is current date, i suppose that should trigger the forecast of the new product from today itself.

Hi A.Basu,

If you already have Customer Product, Location Product etc in system, you do not need to upload them again. But you still need to create the planning objects combinations for the key figure. You could upload any data for key figure to create the combinations.

Best regards,
