DP Forecast into ECC

Hi all,

Pl let me know what's the best way to bring DP forecast into ECC. Should I publish it from SNP, or transfer from DP. I look for similar result in MD04 and Product View.

Thanks

Vardev

    Hi

    You can directly transfer the FCST from DP with the help of release profile (/SAPAPO/MC8S - Maintain Release Profiles) to ECC system. Please refer the below link for more information.

    The FCST will be released to ECC as planned ind. Requirement which will be form of demand. When you execute the MRP or MPS , it will create supply element for these Demand elements.

      I think this will release into SNP/PPDS and not to ECC.

      You may have got confused with transfer profile. With transfer, it will result in original forecast and not the consumed forecast into ECC. I am not sure if strategy 40 in ECC allows/does consumption.

      Appreciate everyone inputs. And looking forward to more..

    As Amol has mentioned , the standard procedure is to release the forecast from DP to R/3 and if you use SNP from DP to SNP

    Thanks

    Hi

    Yes with /SAPAPO/MC8U - Maintain Transfer Profiles you can create the Transfer profile which will be used to release the FCST in ECC system as planned ind. Requirement . Detail information is below for your reference.

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_scm41/helpdata//EN/c9/b4df8b70c011d398450000e8a49608/frameset.htm

    If you are using respective strategy 40 i.e. planning with final assembly it will consume the FCST by sales order. The unconsumed FCST will still be present in MD04 as planned ind. Requirement.

    So at the end , you will have 2 demand element sales order and unconsumed FCST as form of planned ind. Requirement.

    Thanks

      Hi,

      When we want transfer APO DP forecast to ECC one option is the way Amol explained and this is straightforeward.

      1 Create a transfer profile.

      2 Create an activity.

      3 Create a planning job

      4 Schedule the bakcgorung job.

      The transferred forecast will be the APO DP forecast.

      Regards
