SAP PP – Creating Planned independent requirements in sap cloud public edition


Planned independent requirements are used to perform Demand Managment functions. A planned independent requirement contains one planned quantity and one date, or several planned independent requirements schedule lines, that is, one planned quantity split over time according to dates.


Create planned independent requirements as follows:

 Manually by entering quantities and dates.
 Automatically by copying the material forecast.
 Automatically by copying the results of Sales and Operations Planning.
 Automatically by copying the original plan.
 Automatically by copying the planned independent requirements of another material, or by copying another planned independent requirement version of the same material

You must maintain the fiscal year variant in the Forecast requirements section of the material master record if either:
 You copy the planned results from Sales and Operations Planning, and you use a fiscal year variant as the planning period.
 You maintain planned independent requirements with reference to a fiscal year variant.
