The SAP SDM / CPR (Continuous Product Replenishment) forecast tool is an application of SAP SDM and is used to predict future demand.
SAP SDM / CPR allows you to provide your customers with repeat deliveries at the right time, every time, and to contact them proactively. A range of methods is available for planning. Delivery can take place at fixed intervals or based on consumption forecasts. SAP SDM / CPR might calculate these based on the delivery history combined with external parameters such as the weather, consumption patterns or individual parameters. SAP SDM / CPR therefore allows you to offer significantly improved customer service, with salespeople who contact customers proactively and inform them of any upcoming demand. This prevents your customers ordering from your competitors. SAP SDM / CPR even generates all recurring orders automatically, without any manual intervention.
SAP SDM / CPR makes use of data from many different SAP objects when drawing up forecasts,
including customer master data, storage objects (tanks), delivery history etc. The analysis tool provides efficient ways for a suitable selection of customers who can be contacted for repeat delivery. Earlier SAP SDM / CPR forecasts can be retrieved and compared with current forecasts. The SAP SDM / CPR parameters can be updated at any time. Usage factors can be set up for delivery, ensuring that the delivery is made on time and cost-efficiently. Showing the information as a diagram allows you to recognize seasonal consumption patterns, so that you can select the best possible delivery method for every time of year.
