No Demantra Forecast Generated - Common Issues (Doc ID 848205.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 19, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Demantra Demand Management - Version 7.0.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
***Checked for relevance on 23-April-2013***

Purpose


This note is intended to talk about scenarios where no Demantra forecast appears to have been generated.

The Oracle Demantra application requires item, location and demand (sales) data.  Given the required minimum data, run the full data load procedures; EBS Full Download, ep_load package, ep_load_main wrapper procedure, etc.  The  engine should be able to be executed returning forecast data results.  Note that the data load procedures and/or engine run should set all necessary date parameters like  max_fore_sales_date, max_sales_date, last_date, etc. based on the data being provided and should not require any manual intervention.

Date parameters should not be changed manually and instead the data, if no recent data has been provided, should be manually changed in the staging tables before it enters Demantra to reflect meaningful dates for Proof of Concept or Demonstration. 

Scope

This note is intended for those users responsible for monitoring and/or analyzing the output of the Demantra Analytical Engine
