Sales Order on 1 product and Need to consume Forecast on another product

Hello,

We are using PPDS for planning.

We forecast 1 product - Product A ( which is a dummy product ) and then want Sales Order from other product - Product B consume the forecast.

How can I do that ?.

In R/3, I assigned Product A as planning Material on Product B.

CIFed them to APO.

I am not sure what should be requirement strategy on Product A and Product B. I tried 60 and 60 on both products and forecasts is not getting consumed.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Thanks.

    Hi Ketan,

    For your requirement (forecast consumption of product A by sales order of product B) mapping you have done is on the right track.i.e.setting of Planning with planning material .

    Please check following setting in R/3 and APO to work this setup properly...

    1. Planning material (A) and related finished products (B) are created in R/3.

    2. In R/3 MM01 Requirement strategy of the planning material (A) and its finished products (B) has been defined as '60'.

    3. Planning material (A) is assigned to the finished product (B) in the R/3 material master.

    4. After CIF transfer of both products to APO, Requirements strategy 40 is set automatically for both products

    5. In APO, product hierarchy is created automatically in APO having the planning product as the top node .

    5. In DP CVCs are created for planning product and not for the finished products.

    Let me know if need more details..

    Regards,

    • changing the check mode in APO manually does not help because the check mode in the ATP check comes from the ERP. You need to change the requirement class, requirement type, determining requirement type and strategy in ERP to match the entries in APO.
