With this enhancements, the planned requirements are in sync through the BOM and distribution network with the modified quantity.
New child statistics in Demand Plan view with enhanced navigation
In an effort to continually find ways to enhance the usability of the Advanced Planning application, we have added a child statistics grid to the demand plan section and introduced a new navigation option to easily drill down the hierarchy.
Due to the highly configurable nature of the demand plan hierarchy, these statistics are calculated on demand. As such, we recommend creating a separate statistics tab to browse the statistics for companies with many nodes within a level.
To add the children statistics grid, click on the "wrench" icon to open the "Tabs Configuration" pop-up. Select the "Children Statistics Grid"
This provides a list of all the nodes with the current level being viewed. Users may then apply filters against the data to identify specific nodes to review further.
Clicking on the new navigation icon allows users to drill down to the next level with ease without having to use the left hand side navigation panel.
In the example below, I have drilled down into the United States node and now see the customers within the context of the United States.
Please note that the Children Statistics grid is also available in the Forecast Section.
In addition, the new navigation option has been added to the Forecast Children Statistics Grid.
