In APODP How many times do we need to run Interactive planning for period 4-4-5?
(4 weeks-4weeks-5weeks---->1 Quarter)
Please respond to my question .I will be very thankfull for you guys.
is your question to do with how to set up jobs to run statistical forecast for 4-4-5 calendar.
Assuming that you would run forecast as a background job you will have to do the following:
1. Setup three jobs. Schedule the first job for current month with a repetition evry four months
2. Schedule Job 2 for 2nd month with a repetiotion of 4 months
3. Schedule Job 3 for 3rd month with a repetition of 5 months.
As your quarter contains almost 3 months period, when you are running
statistical forecast for this period, you need to see from business angle,
whether during this period any historical data needs to be considered
later on once the stat forecast got generated in system. If at all, no
changes in sales needs to be considered and if your business is
capable to use stat forecast during this period it is fare enough.
Moreover, if your purpose for generating stat forecast is to use as
baseline to generate consencus forecast, then you can very well
goahead with single run and modify the forecast.
