Setting up Demand Plan and Releasing Forecasting Data to Planning

Demand planning enables the demand planner to forecast demand and subsequently release it to supply chain planning and control,  at the level of a product in a specific supply planning area.

Demand forecasts are key to supply chain planning – the more transparent and accurate they are, the more effectively companies can plan for future demands. Real-time business data captured from application areas such as sales and supply chain, is stored in one data warehouse. Companies thus have a comprehensive view of all relevant figures today, and the information they need for effective planning in the future.

      Hey Sandeep

      Nice description!

      But I think you picked the wrong tag:

      "SAP Integrated Business Planning" is not including Business by Design but only IBP, so you will miss a lot of your target group.

      Yours, Irmi
