To help users understand the resources and functionality available in R12 for the Advanced Planning and Scheduling applications which includes:

** 1. The APS Support team is responsible only for the integration portions of the these applications (SNO & PS / Demantra) and each has it's own product support team responsible for the product functionality. We work very closely with these groups to coordinate and provide effective support.
Each Team has it's own Knowledge Browser page in My Oracle Support where more information is available.
NAV: Knowledge Browser / E-Business Suite / <choose product link>
Direct links to these Knowlege Browser pages:
SNO & PS <Note 387471.1>
Demand Management <Note 390506.1>
Advanced Planning <Note 1081971.1>

2. Additionally, for ODP, APS Support primarily supports the data collected to ODP, defining the plans and finished plan data that is used in ASCP. Primary support for core functions once a demand plan is created in ODP are provided by the 'OLAP' team for Demand Planning. We work very closely with this team to provide coordinated support. Further information can be found on My Oracle Support in the Knowledge Browser for Demand Planning <Note 267622.1>
