Data Requirements by Forecast Type - Material Release Schedule (FC2)
This section contains a "technology-independent" view of the data requirements for this forecast type. The individual technologies have specific requirements - see Index of Business Documents for more information.
Forecast Model 3 inherits Basic Forecast Data and Basic Line Item data from the Class Diagram: Basic Data Requirements. The Material Release (Embedded Release) Schedule files contain some the same planned requirements information as the traditional Planning Forecast. The differences are in transaction / message structure, contractual commitments, and so forth, and in the case of the Embedded Release process, released requirements are contained within the forecast file (releases "embedded" in forecast file), rather than discrete releases being sent. The released requirements are used directly from the forecast file and processed as authorizations to ship.
