indepedndent requirement from APO to ECC

HI ,

Demand Planning in APO may, for example, result in planned independent

requirements in APO (the forecast is released to APO Demand Planning).

However, these planned independent requirements can also be transferred to ECC

for further planning.

So as all the materials which are planned in APO have X0 so how this planned independent requirement will be consider in MRP .....?

So does it means that by transferring this independent requirement in ECC there is no use of it ?

thanks .

    Hi SCM APO 22,

    Normally, this procedure is followed in cases where forecast

    consumption is planned. So ECC requires the foreast information

    which is planned at APO.

    MRP can be decided either based at R/3 or at SNP depending

    upon the business requirement

    Hi,

    of course you have to decide (per product) either you want to have the planning run in R/3 or in APO. The forecats then is released either to APO or R/3.

    If you release the forecast to R/3 for an X0 product it of course is not consdered there, it then is available in r/3 just for informational purposes.

    If you want to keep your release jobs simple you also could release all forecasts to R/3 and then activate in integration model for the X0 products for the forecasts to have in in APO for palnning as well.

    Regards.

      Hi Hubert and Senthil,

      Thanks a lot for reply , can you please explain me how i can have planing run in R/3 with the indipendent requirement generated through forcast of APO.

      i am unable to understand as all the materials which are APO relevant have X0 MRP type so how to do a planning run for them in R/3......?

      do i need to create duplicate material ...?

      Regards

    Hi SCM APO 22,

    For APO relevant items with mrp type XO, it is ideal that planning

    needs to be done only in APO.

    Only with items having MRP type PD, planning will be done at

    R/3 using normal MRP.

    For XO items, planned independent requirements will be

    generated in APO itself and will be transferred from DP to

    SNP.

    Those in turn, if required alone can be transferred to R/3

    for reporting or consumption purposes.

    Hope it is clear now. Please confirm.

    Regards

    R. Senthil Mareeswaran.

      A,

      This question is unrelated to the previous topic. Please raise a new thread.

      In your new question, please be more specific. If you are speaking about SCM/APO, 'planning exception' type reports are normally handled in the alert monitor. Or, you can write a custom report.

      Best Regards,
