Ex-post forecast not saving

Dear All,

I am trying to save the corrected history and ex-post forecast generated by DP when forecasting but it does not seem to work. I have the following settings:

  • In the planning area, I have defined the key figures for forecast, corrected history, corrected forecast and ex-post forecast.

  • In the forecast profile, I have defined the outlier correction method as Ex-Post Method. The forecast key figure is the same key figure used for the corrected forecast in the planning area. If I use the same KF as the forecast then it is unable to read the sales history.

  • The planning book is ready for input.

Whether I generate the forecast interactively or in the background, the corrected history and ex-post forecast are not saved.

Are there any additional settings I need to make? We are using SCM 5.0.

Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi Emilie,

    Your settings look OK...

    Could you have a look if OSS 1087474 is relevant for you?

    Which model are you using? Some models are not using ex-post (e.g linear regression or moving average).

    Are the ex-post and corrected history visible in the interactive forecasting view? Can you see the forecast error (MAD and others)?

    Thanks and Regards

      Hi Julien,

      Thanks for you reply.

      The forecast key figure was different in the forecast profile and the planning area, otherwise DP was not even forecasting. However, I did change it back to have the same key figure and found out why the system was not generating a forecast. Some of the key figures had the indicator "Zero Allowed" on while others didn't. After making all the KF the same, everything worked; it is forecasting and saving the ex-post forecast and corrected history.

      Thanks again for you help.
