Aggregated Lifecycle Planning with Phase-In/Out Modeling
Aggregated lifecycle planning with phase-in/out modelling enables you to use assignments to phase-in or phase-out profiles at the detail level when planning at aggregated level, for instance product group level.
This function is part of the Interchangeability suite of functions in Demand Planning. See alsoProduct Interchangeability in Demand Planning.
Aggregated lifecycle planning makes use of aggregation. This means that calculation types N (no calculation), A (average), and D (average at lowest level of detail) cannot be used together with aggregated lifecycle planning with phase-in/out modeling. In fact only calculation types S (pro rata), P (based on another key figure), and I (pro rata; if initial: based on different key figure) are permissible.
To use aggregated lifecycle planning, you must set the Aggregated Lifecycle Planning with Phase-In/Out Profiles indicator in the basic settings for lifecycle planning for the relevant planning area.
This function adapts forecast data in the forecast period. It cannot be used for historical data. For performance reasons it only works together with the forecast key figure, not for the corrected forecast. This means you cannot use this function together with an entry in the Days in Period field in the forecast profile.
This function does not work with forecast key figures that are stored in InfoCubes.
