The last step in the S&OP Planning process is approving the demand and supply plan to make it available for the requirement planning process. The approval allows the latest plan to be available for requirement planning. If the plan is not approved, the last approved plan is used in requirement planning.
To Approve the Plan:
- Click "Plan Approval" in the menu bar
- Click "Approve" to approve the plan
- The last approved plan is shown by a date and time stamp
Running a requirement plan is described in the article Running a New Requirement Plan (S&OP Platform)
