Abt Seasonal Planning

Hi,

I need few clarifications regarding the seasonal planning. Please find my questions below.

1. Is the Seasonal Planning meant only for the display purpose ((i.e..) to view the data based on seasons) ?

Or Does it has any other benefit?

2. In the settings for Seasonal Pattern we have year Independent and Dependent Structures. What's the difference

between and when to use it?

3. What is the use of Maintain Assignment Rules and Start Assignment settings in Seasonal Planning?

Thanks for your precious time.

- Ram.

    Hi Ram,

    1) Seasonal planning functionality in DP is not only for display purpose

    and also for planning purposes.

    You can plan and use the forecast and demand based on various

    seasons accordingly. It helps to maintain and alter the forecast as per

    the seasons

    2) If the seasonal pattern falls across all the consecutive years, then

    you need to work and maintain the independent year functionality.

    If the pattern varies across different years, then dependent year

    maintenance needs to be carried out

    3) You use assignment rules to determine which characteristic

    values combinations of a planning area you want the system to

    assign specific seasonal patterns to.

    Hi Ram,

    During maintaining assignment rules, you maintain the level of

    assignment in terms of characteristic value combinations.

    Here assignment rules are used to find out the planning area

    to assign specific seasonal pattern.

    Say for eg., if you CVCs like North_location1, North_location2,

    South_location1, south_location2, then you can assign seasons

    at this level say like North_location1 as summer,

    South_location2 as winter.....,

    Hope now you are clear. Please confirm

    Regards
