In this particular presentation we are using a CPG (Consumer Packaged Goods) industry use case as an example to demonstrate the actual business need on SKU level planning and forecasting. The scope of our SAP BPC NW 10.0 implementation includes SAP BPC data modelling, SAP BPC designing, SAP BPC build and logic scripting and also an implementation approach and methodology for a top down planning or SKU level planning and forecasting implementation. This step by step implementation guide well equips users with all essential and mandatory steps that required implementing a SKU level planning under any business scenario. Even though the solution was developed for a CPG industry but further these solutions can be customised to meet any other industries such as Oil & Gas, Power and Utility, and etc. It has been assumed that the user has basic knowledge/understanding about SAP BPC NW 10.0 version and SAP system landscape.

SAP BPC 10 NW server is sitting in between SAP BW and the SAP BPC’s various front end tools – MS Office Tools and the web browser. Data from various data sources can be uploaded into SAP HANA database. This data is then processed by SAP BPC server through SAP BW and then shown through MS office client and web interfaces. Besides this, SAP BW server can also be accessed through SAP GUI – a Windows Client, but It is not advisable to change the data through SAP BW.

Step # 2 : Create and configure the dimensions needed(ACCOUNT, CATEGORY, ENTITY, PRODUCT_ALLOC, RPTCURRENCY & TIME). Also, create the product hierarchy for the base level products in the PRODUCT_ALLOC dimension. Step # 3 : Create and configure the model - SKU_PLANNING. Step # 4 : Create a new workbook with THREE tabs – one to accept sales target achieved last year(Actuals), second one to accept the sales target to be achieved(Target Data) and the third one to display the allocated/distributed values of sales target(Plan Data) based on the past achieved target values. Step # 5 : In the work book, go to the first tab(Actuals) and create an input form to accept the sales target achieved by the entity for the last period/year. Step # 6 : In the work book, go to the second tab(Target Data) and create an input form to accept the sales target to be achieved by the entity for the future period. Step # 7 : In the work book, go to the third tab(Plan Data) and create a report/input form to display the sales target, distributed down the lane, to be achieved by the entity for the future period. These allocated values can then be modified by the user as needed.

The script reads the sales target achieved by the entity for the last period/year at the non-base level products and distributes this value to the base level products. Step # 9 : Create and configure a data manager package to run logic script(created at Step # 8)) to read sales target set at the non-base level products and distribute it to the base level products. Planning : Step # 1 : In the work book, created under Step # 4 of Configuration section, go to the first tab(Actuals) and key-in the sales target achieved by the entity for the last period/year. Step # 2 : In the work book, go to the second tab(Target Data) and key-in/set the sales target to be achieved by the entity for the future/upcoming period. Step # 3 : Now, run the DM package, created under Step # 9 of Configuration section, to distribute the sales target set for the future period/year based on the sales figures achieved by the entity for the last period/year. Step # 4 : In the work book, go to the third tab(Plan Data) and verify the distributed/allocated sales targets for the entity for the future period/year based on the sales target achieved by the entity for the last period/year. These distributed values can then be modified by the planning users as needed. Step # 5 :Now, close the excel work book and log off from SAP BPC NW 10 server.

Create and configure PRODUCT_ALLOC dimension as shown below: Note : The property – GROUP, is used to identify the levels of non-base level members. Non base level members are nothing but groups at multiple levels in the product hierarchy. Planning or sales target can be set only at these levels and NOT at the base level members. i.e. planning or setting the target is allowed only at the non-base level members. At any point of time, planning/allocation is allowed only at one level(non-base members) and planners have to specify this input(about the level) when running the data manager package.

These distributed values can then be modified by the planning users as needed. Note : The rolled-up data at the top level is tallying with what was entered as the target for the said period – for Jan 2013 and Jul2013. This clearly proves that the allocation has been done successfully.

To re-confirm that the target distribution is correct, we will now take the product – Olay Natural White, and compute the distributed target for Jan 2013. Target(planned) for Olay Natural white = (A/B) * C =(700,000/1,800,000) * 1,950,000 = 758,333.33 =D This proves that our allocation is perfect.
