Consumption of forecast at another location

217 Views

Gents,

Can you advise if there is a way of consuming the forecast release to plant a for product 1, however the sales order for product 1 can be assigned to plant B, although this sales order demand was considered as part of the forecast released to plant a.

This is not a data issue, but relates to the customer process/practice.

Are there any particular BADI ' that should be considered?

Would you identify any particular disadvantages?

Has this been done anywhere before?

I have to date considered assigning a consumption group to the various product locations and when the sales order arrived in APO perform a check, calculation to consume the forecast in plant A, however not sure if this creates more issues, e,g, there is no entry in /SAPAPO/RRP3 of the sales order consuming the forecast etc.

Any help on this matter would be appreciated.

Paul
