Ignoring partial demand while forecasting

HI all,

We are in SCM 4.0. We consider past 36 months of demand to foreacst for next 24 months. In the last 6 months we had a huge spikes in the demand due to unexpected orders and now the demand is stable. I am looking for the ways to ignore the laast 6 months of huge demand for the future forecasting as it will have great impact on our future numbers.

Couple of options we are looking at to reduce the effect are:

1. Using Outlier functionality with various sigma values

2. Trying out with Trend Damping Profile and/or History damping profiles

However, we are looking for the possible ways to ignore the last 6 months demand completely

Your thoughts are well appreciated.

    Hi Sai,

    Try the following options

    1) try using transaction /SAPAPO/SPPDMDH for adjusting demand history (I

    have never used this functionality)

    2) Extract the demand history from infocubes, make the required corrections

    and upload it using flat file and use it during forecasting
