    Pls. find some details regarding Flexible Planning as below :

    Flexible Planning

    Flexible Planning offers multiple options for customized configuration: you can plan on any organizational level, and also define the content and the layout of the planning screens.

    You can process your planning data from the standpoint of almost any organizational unit (for example, sales organization, material group, production plant, product group, material) and even from the standpoint of the entire enterprise.

    The planning table in which you work resembles a spreadsheet. You have enormous scope to track previous planning data, anticipate market demand, run analyses, and perform what-if simulations.

    A series of mass processing functions automate the planning of large volumes of data.

    Planning carried out in Flexible Planning, can be based on any information structure of your choice, either a self-defined information structure or a standard information structure. (For an explanation of these two kinds of information structure, see LO Logistics Information System.) This means you can plan any combination of organizational units and any key figures. In addition, you can design your own planning table layouts, known as planning types.

    To access Flexible Planning, in the SAP Easy Access menu choose Logistics ® Logistics Controlling ® Flexible Planning. Alternatively, from the Standard SOP menu, choose Planning ® Flexible Planning.

    You can also maintain plans using the Planning menu in the logistics information systems.

    For more details pls. go through the following link :

    Hope this helps.
