Disaggregation and the location split table
The business here forecasts at grade/material level but want to avoid using the location split table. They don't want to forecast at plant level. My plan is to run statistical forecasting at plant level in a separate POS, then use the result to disaggregate the final forecast at grade level down to plant.
I want to use the a separate POS to ensure CVC's are not required at plant/customer level which would create too much data.
My plan is to:
1, run statistical FC at material grade in POS1
2, make adjustments at material grade in POS1 to create the final forecast
2, run statistical FC at material plant in POS2
4 copy the final FC from POS1 onto material in POS2 to apply disggregation to plant
5. release the forecast from POS2
Do I need to be using proprtional factors via MC8V or is it simpler just to copy the key figure?
Thanks for your help
