Hi experts,

Is there any possibility to influence the forecast consumption logic in order to have a cross-location forecast consumption?

Let me explain the requirement with an example:

PROD 1 - LOC A -> FCST = 10

PROD 1 - LOC B -> FCST = 20

The situation is...if a new requirement for the first combination (PROD 1 - LOC A) of 15 is entered in the system we will consume the entire forecast in LOC A.

**APO WAY**:

PROD 1 - LOC A -> CONSUMED FCST = 10 --> REMAINING FORECAST = 0

PROD 1 - LOC B -> COMSUMED FCST = 0 --> REMAINING FORECAST = 20

In that case we would like to consume all forecast for LOC A (10) but also consume the remaining requirement quantity for LOC B (5).

**DESIRED WAY**:

PROD 1 - LOC A -> CONSUMED FCST = 10 --> REMAINING FORECAST = 0

PROD 1 - LOC B -> COMSUMED FCST = 5 --> REMAINING FORECAST = 15

We have been looking for user exits in order to influence withdrawal quantities stored in /SAPAPO/DP_SCHED table...is that correct procedure?

We are looking at BAdI "/SAPAPO/SDP_RELDATA" in order to influence the release, and change the the forecast quantities based on the withdrawal quantities, but this would force as to release forecast on daily basis.

Finally, we know that GATP functionality could be used, but it is moving sales orders in case that allocation is not possible, and we are not allowed to move sales orders across locations.

Any idea? Is that possible?

Thanks in advance,

Raul
