Reproducing the Issue

  1.  Go to the work centre Demand Planning. 
  2. View Demand Plans. 
  3. Select the Demand Plan ABC (ABC represents the ID of your Demand Plan). 
  4. Click the Plan button. 
  5. Click the Planning Board Layout button and select Maximal Layout. 
  6. Change the Function from Copy Actuals to Copy Statistical Forecast. 
  7. Click on Run Function. 


The system currently excludes the Third-Party Outbound Deliveries from Demand Planning which may cause a mismatch between the actual sales data in Demand Planning and the one shown in the Sales Order Volume report.


This is the expected behaviour of the system.
