      Thank you. Good one. I appreciate you putting this in here.

      I have question - How can I bring current Requirements details of a material into my SOP screen. Like I have a material and when I check MD04 i can see what my requirements are, and I want to see how I can bring those values into my SOP screen. I was creating a KPI for Current Requirements and wanted to see how can get those values. Any advise would really help. thanks

      Hi Kumar,

      Very good document for those need to work on Flexible planning.

      I have one query, when we create Planning hierarchy we need to give proportional factors for each characteristic level. Say for example, Under Sales org/Distribution ch/Division, there are 1000 materials so how to provide proportional factors for all materials under all divisions.

      If automatic calculation of Prop.factors followed how the system calculates, please share this logic of mapping business process.
