Forecast to Plan

The Forecast to Plan (F2Pl) domain describes processes required for forecasting and planning customer demands and the respective material supply. The focus of the domain lies on the manufacturing industry and on the interaction of different planning disciplines. F2Pl domain is based on a planning reference landscape consisting of demand, procurement, production and distribution planning as well as the bridging element of master planning. The orchestration of these planning disciplines is handled by the sales & operations planning function.
