Consumption Logic in APO

Hello Gurus,

Ours is a weekly forecast load from DP to SNP, current consumption logic is strategy-20, backward - 3 days and forward - 3 days

Week W1 W2 W3 W4

Forecast 10 10 10 10

Sales order 45

Total Demand 55 10 10 10

For monthly customers the requirements are generated in first week and again unnecessarily requirements are generated in W2,W3 and W4. It should not happen.

Please suggest if I can use Monthly consumption for those customers and what will be the impact if I use it.

Thank you.

    Hello,

    Look like no consumption of forecast happen in this case,.

    Forecast Consumption is a process that is triggered every time a release from DP to SNP happens. It depends upon the requested date of customer order and consumption period. As you have customer order in wk 1 and 3 days consumption period and forecast available from wk 1.

    Wk2, 3 and 4 will remain as it is.

    System will only consume the forecast of wk 1 as you have consumption period of 3 days. Please check the sales requirement and forecast /SAPAPO/DMP1. Also try by changing the consumption period from 3 days to 30 and release the forecast again.

    Also refer SAP knowledge base article
