Proportional Factors Detailed or Fixed

I would appreciate any feedback although I may have answered my own question. I am new to the organization and we just implemented APO for Demand Planning.

We have discoverd negative forecasts at the Product Customer level that are due to Credits which the APODPDANT (12 month history) is taking into account in terms of our proportions. Our APODPDANT is set to detailed proportions which is causing the problem, but forecasting Net Shipments rather than Orders is also part of the problem.

With only two years history is it logical to set the APODPDANT to Detailed proportions.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

    Hi Kevin,

    Please check the aggregation and disaggregation data along with proportional factors. If any thing is mismatched in calculation type(S,P,N,I,D,E,F etc) it will cause the problem.

    Also check the time based disaggregation.

    Check your forecast profile for correct calculation(Adjust the alpha,gama factor accordingly). You can write the macro for forecast adjustment if you are not able to solve it by functionality. System can write the specified data and can correct the forecast..

    Please let me knoe is implementation going on or already implemented. Since problem is critics so I can assume only after getting the system details , Version details and project status(Impl. Support,Upgrade).

    Regards,

    Santosh
