    Title:
    Introduction of existing product to new location
    Content:

    Hi,

    In Demantra, we have capability to introduce existing product to new location. In Oracle Demand Management Cloud do we have this functionality available. I verified in New product launch but I don't see this capability.

    Any inputs on this topic would help.

    Thanks,

    Venkatesh

      Hi -

      A way to create new combinations is to use the ScpMeasuresImportTemplate.xlsm template.  In the template provide the value for each item-location that is a new combination; upload at the lowest level of all the dimensions of a measure.  The measure in the upload file must be defined with the "Refresh with current data" option checked.  This option is available on the ADVANCED tab when you are creating or editing a measure.  To create a new user-defined measure, you can duplicate an existing measure that has the desired dimensionality and has that option checked.

      In the upload template, you can provide a "dummy" value or the actual value for each  item-location combination that you want to enter data for.   After the upload, you should be able to enter data for those items-locations included in the file. 

      After uploading the template, the new combinations should be created.  You can then enter data into an editable measure for the new combinations in the table.

        Hi Mary,

        Thanks for your response. That's the workaround which we are currently following up by using shipments history FBDI. Basically we are trying to copy the historical data from old combination to new combination. It would be tidious job for planners to prepare FBDI file from Old combination to New combination every when they introduce the existing product to new location.

        I think we should raise the enhancement request to bring up this functionality.

        Thanks,
