Demand Planning with SAP APO - Execution


Published on

The book ‘Demand Planning with SAP APO – Execution’, authored by Avijit Dutta and Shreekant Shiralkar, is a sequel to the book ‘Demand Planning with SAP APO – Concepts and Design’. This book continues on to cover
the execution aspects of APO DP.

The book revolves around a business scenario that warrants demand planning execution through an SAP APO implementation. The scenario is covered progressively in the chapters, along with the relevant concepts, business rationale, design, linkages to overall demand planning process flow, and the execution.

The contents are crafted for an easy reading, learning, and practical application with the help of screenshots and illustrations.

The book begins with an introduction to SAP SCM solution for DP execution. This is followed by a dedicated chapter on business scenario that elaborates on the business context and how APO DP could be a solution. Next chapter presents the data loading process using inbuilt APO BW. Subsequent chapters focus on demand planning execution in APO DP and ERP in accordance with the overall demand planning process flow and the example business scenario. Concepts and business rationale for the choice of specific demand planning execution methods are also explained. One dedicated chapter explains implementation and template-based rollout methodology.
The book also provides a set of appendices to complement the contents in the book.

Authors recommend that readers refer to the prequel
book before reading this book and complete their learning on APO DP.
