Use of Planning Strategy 70


While we understand how to use this strategy, we are interested to know which other SAP customers are currently using it. We have an implementation coming up and believe that this is the proper solution but would like to open a dialog with others that actually have experience in the use. Our scenario is as follows:

- Forecasting to be done in Demand Planning at a material group level. This group level has many shared components.

- Transfer of the forecast into Demand Management will be inactive at the FG level. Long term planning will be used to create simulated dependent requirements for the component materials.

- Using MS66, we will create independent requirements with strategy 70 (VSFB requirements) as active for the component materials.

- As actual sales orders are taken and MRP creates planned orders, the component level forecast will be consumed regardless of which parent the sales order is for, thereby truly enabling a forecast at the family level without having to use planning materials.

If you are currently using Strategy 70, I would greatly appreciate some corresondence regarding our proposed solution.
