Basic APO Functionality
I am new to APO world and I just want to know few basic concepts about it – the input and output of each module in APO.
|Module||Input||Output||Engine||Effect in ECC / OLTP System (Through CIFing)|
|Demand Planning||Sales Order History Data from OLTP System||Unconstrained Forecast or Demand||Forecast Models (e.g. Univariate/Seasonal)||No effect – No orders etc. are created.|
|Supply Network Planning||Unconstrained Forecast from DP||PR, STR & SNP Planned Orders||Heuristic/Optimizer/CTM||PR, STR, Planned Orders|
|SNP Deployment Run||ATD Receipts & ATP Issues||Change the ATP Category of STR||Optimizer / Heuristic||STR (No change)|
Please correct me if I have written anything wrong in the above table.
What i need is :-
What is the “input / output / engines / effect in OLTP system” of other modules like :- PPDS, TLB, GATP.
Please suggest. I guess, this will help to clarify the doubt of many APO freshers.
