forecast not being consumed

Hello all:

I have a situation whereby some of my materials are having sales orders consume forecast correctly and some are not. All have Proposed Strategy of 20. All have valid Sales Orders CIF'ed from R/3. I ran Rimodini to resend all sales orders. I resent DP forecast to SNP. When I go into /sapapo/rrp3, I do not see anything in the Forecast tab on these materials. However, I do on all my other materials which consume properly. Also, I found a tcode /sapapo/dmp1 which shows the Consumption on material level, and it shows nothing for these particular materials. To make things more interesting, it is working fine in development system, but not in quality or production system.

SAP suggested some OSS Notes, but none of them worked.

Any ideas? Could it be something on the Sales orders themselves that prevent Consumption or on the Product Master? The Sales Orders are using the same order type and item category as my other sales orders that consume properly.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

    Hi Andrea,

    Is the strategy group assigned to the problematic material same as that of the one with no issues in forecast consumption? You need to check the ECC configuration also especially requirement types.

    Hi Andrea,

    Please check following things;

    1) Strategy Group in ECC, if it is not same as other materials for which forecast consumption is happening.

    2) As you specified that consumptions is happening in Dev system, would advice to compare you dev and other system settings, related to consumption.

    3) Any recent update in system, which might be cacusing issue.

    Let me know if this helps.
