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.

Best regards,

Hi John,

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).
