    Season Planning is a special fucntionlity availble in APO Demand Planning.

    For seasonal planning, the system aggregates the data of several periods of a specific periodicity (such as a month or week) to a season, and the data of several seasons to a season year.

    We can use u2019Seasonal Planningu2018 to perform a flexible time-based aggregation of planning data based on season years. We can divide the time frame of a season year into as many seasons as we wish, and model season years according to regions. For example we may divide season year in 4 seasons.

    For differnent regions we may have seaosn year start and end differently.

    Seasonal model is one of the forecast model ,like constant, trend models in Univariate forecasting method. We use seasonal model for executing forecasts for products which have demand pattern which is seasonal.

    We may say that seasonal planning functionlity will be ceratinly used for products with seasonal pattern of demand, so that we have a better visibility of the periods in terms of seaosn year.

    I hope this will be useful.
