JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Requirements Planning - Version XE and later Information in this document applies to any platform.
This document is a supplement to existing documentation for all releases. Refer to Requirements Planning (MRP/CRP), Forecasting & Project Manufacturing Implementation Guides Document 1109575.1. The guide will provide more details on each forecast type.
This application allows the detailed forecasting of individual items based on prior sales data. Using a variety of forecasting methods (12 in all), material and finished goods needs can be planned more accurately into the future. The key to success is testing with different methods to find what is best for individual business needs. Testing with all 12 methods will not produce the desired results. Test with those methods that best fit the business model.
In JD Edward EnterpriseOne, from releases Xe through the latest release, forecasts are not "spread." Monthly amounts can be used when creating weekly buckets, but the application will not spread them over the weeks as World A.73 did. A8. and A9 versions in World no longer automatically spread either.
Those responsible for forecasting and supporting MRP independent demand will benefit from this document.
