Modeling moving seasons in APO
I have a query in Demand Planning in SCM 4.1.
I have a seasonal effect in my sales data. However the seasonal period can move by about 2 weeks. say i had a festival starting in first week of December last year, this year it is going to start in 3rd week. How do I use the forecasting techniques to model this shift behavior. In my forecast I expect the values to peak from 3 week of December, this year.
Try also the "Length variation" field in Control Parameters in Forecast Profile. It might help for optimization of seasonal length.
