Sales Forecast in SAP-APO-SPP
Dear SAP experts,
We are assesing the usage of SAP-APO-SPP (Service Parts Planning). When reviewing the documentation in SAP help, it seems to me that the forecast that can be done is using the demand history (history-based forecast). However we do have scenario where we have sales forecast in other application. We know that in usual SAP-APO, we can load the sales forecast and it will become requirement during planning. Is this same functionality also exist in SPP? Because I cannot see anywhere in the SAP library for SPP that we can actually upload sales forecast to SPP.
Sorry - there was a typo in my last comment .. its "Make to Order" and not "Make to Stock". Pls replace it.
What i mean is Forecast will never get consumed by SO in SPP.
Yes, SPP relies on Historical data and calculate forecast based on the histories.
You can create forecast manually for a product location in SPP.
In ECC- SOP you'll create PIR manually, in SPP/APO DP system does the same for you (just an automation).
