E1 9.1 / Grower Supply and Demand

Provide a way to go from a general estimated supply to a more specific SKU-level from a certain point in time so the expected supply is made visible in S&D inquiry and planning.

For example:
When starting a harvest a farmer plans to harvest X tons of e.g. paprika at the end of the harvest period. This estimate is passed on through Supply & Demand via a purchase order.
Several weeks/months before the actual harvest the expected amount of each of the product variants can be estimated  and this expectation becomes more accurate as time of harvest comes closer.
In the agribusiness size and/or weight and/or quality are making up a unique SKU for paprika and Planning requires the ability to know the expected supply of each of those SKUs as specific customers demand specific SKUs.
So, start with X tons of Red Paprika and end up with 5 tons of Red Paprika, Quality A, size 30, 10 tons of Red Paprika, Quality B, size 40 etc.

Although matrix items setup can be used to set up product variants and the harvest of each individual SKU can be entered during Weigh Tag Receipt, for planning purposes however, that is way too late.
