    They are basically doing the same - releasing the forecast from DP to SNP. But one main difference that i can think of is that in /n/sapapo/mc90 , you can control the range of dates for which the forecast is released to SNP using the date parameter .

    Thanks

    Hi Prasad,

    Aparna point is absolutely correct. From usage point of view, date is the only difference.

    There are 2 options to release forecast from DP to SNP.

    1. Demand Planning -> Planning -> Release -> Release to Supply Network Planning.

    2. By creating Rlease profile, activity , planning job, etc

    1 is used for online purpose & for few product/location combinations. However 2 is used for the mass processing.

    Use 1 to release a limited amount of data (a few product / location combinations only) from Demand Planning to Supply Network Planning. Do not use it for mass releases, for example large planning books.

    If you try to release too much data with this transaction, memory problems are likely, since the system tries to read all the data

    simultaneously. For mass processing, use 2 - Releasing the Demand Plan with Mass Processing.

    Decision is based on data volume & performance.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,

    Nawanit
