Goal

A. What is a NEW ITEM METHOD?

B. What is NPI - CREATE SIMILAR PRODUCT METHOD?
       B.1. Other related methods.
       B.2. How to use NpiUseWsFilter?
       B.3. Cannibalization Example

C. What is NP LIST SETUP?

D. What is an INTEGRATED PRODUCT / ITEM?

E Does EOL refer to other products than created by NPI?

-----------------------------
A. NEW ITEM METHOD - CWB - WKS - Level Item - Create Member
==================
This is a method of adding Item Members through Collaborator Workbench - Worksheet.
They are NOT visible in the worksheet, if not linked to a valid location either through Chaining / Member Management or through a data load that uses that new item. 

A1. The Item could be created directly in EBS / ASCP and collected to VCP.

-----------------------------------------------------------
B. NEW PRODUCT ITEM - NPI = CREATE SIMILAR PRODUCT - is a Demantra Method used..
=====================================
      a. To create a new item/product, which is supposed to cannibalize an old one which will disappear in a frame time from the Market. It is a transfer of forecast between an old product and a new one.

      b. To update / copy the history from one product to another that was loaded / imported, which does not have any sales data / history yet.

      c. To create an existing item in EBS / ASCP for which we want forecast data to be sent to ASCP on exactly the same item code.

B.1. Other related methods. - IG ** definitions 
B.2. How to use NpiUseWsFilter? - IG ** definitions

           When you have it on yes, the worksheet filter will be considered when created a new similar item. When this is no, no matter the filter in the worksheet, all possible combinations will be created for the new item, disregarding worksheet's filters

B.3. Example of Using Cannibalization:
        New Product Introduction - Create Similar Item Method
             Which is the effect of establishing a Cannibalization percentage, Start/ Launch Date & End Date?

--------------------------------------------------
C. NEW PRODUCT LIST - NP List - EBS SETUP
================================
is an EBS setup which helps us to transfer into Demantra new products without sales;

1. EBS - Demantra Role: -> Demand Management System Administrator -> Settings -> New Product List -> Choose an existing EBS product to be transferred to Demantra

2. By running request to Collection Shipment & Booking History the item will then be visible to Demantra Application and will be found in final tables - items & mdp_matrix. (See the attached document for steps & SQL checking)

3. When the item is needed to have a history from another existent item in Demantra, we could use NPI and put as target the new imported item through NPList. The sales history will be copied from source to target item / product.

D. INTEGRATED PRODUCT-
=====================
All working together: In the case in which we want to have a NPI item ( Say Item A123) which is being created from a parent item. The parent item is chosen based on the orgs it's assigned to and some other attributes specific to the business.

Once we create the item A123 in Demantra, we create the same item A123 in EBS (with same part number) and collect it to ASCP. Logically, Now, A123 is available in ASCP to receive forecast from A123 which is present in Demantra.

Then we run Demantra engine to generate forecast for item A123.
We interface the forecast to ASCP. Expectation is that, since A123 is present in ASCP and Demantra, the forecast would be interfaced.
