The need for spare parts in forecasting Demantra

Hi all

I would be really grateful if someone who has been treated using following problem we,

The thing is - we want to forecast 3 different types of items:
1. main elements we sell - examples - machines.
2. accessories for the machines we sell. A certain accessory can be used with several types of machines. (Cables, batteries etc.)
3. spare parts we have in stock in order to provide service to our customers.
Every machine we sell has a different set of spare parts used in the repair.

Forecasts for the machines are a typical demantra model forecast. (Forecast by the book of the sale).
My question is about the forecast for spare parts, we need for repairs.
We know that the demand for replacement parts is influenced by how many machines that use this part have been sold to customers.
It depends on also - the use of this part is common for fixing these machines that need service.
(some parts are broken more often etc.).
Also since we provide insurance of fixed prices for customers, they don't "see" spares price as a factor.
(they don't naturally 'buy' parts).

How can demantra link forecasts for the spare part to the history of machine sales? Demantra planned service does (which behaves very different than sales). It is clear that forecasting the demand for spare parts with simply looking at the history of each part will not provide better forecast results.

Ideas anyone?
I'm sure that most implementations in the face of this problem - about service parts forecasting.
Would appreciate any response,
Thank you very much
Aaron.

Aaron,
There is a user guide available for the planning of services via metalink parts; 'Oracle Service Parts Planning Guide of the user' E13338-02 you can find this and the other new R12.1 application notices via metalink Note 746824.1

Mustapha Krishnan, Oracle APS Product Management, provided an overview on Service parts planning GIS to OAUG advanced planning in November 2008. If your company is a member of OAUG, any employee can then join the GIS. You can then view this presentation and other previous educational sessions on the tab "events".

    Hey everybody,

    HP workspace eliminates the need for a customer to have a VPN?

    Thank you

    Bill

    If a customer is already using a VPN infrastructure, HP workspace does not eliminate the need for a virtual private network, since HP Workspace application virtualization Server servers might need access through the VPN. HP offer a service added to a VPN integration for HP customers workspace which may require it. For purchase details, please contact your authorized HP or HP account.

    If only I had not installed the Norton... do you not think that any PC can operate without the need for anti-virus software knowing that you must close

    the Windows firewall and use theres rather...?

    I wonder!

    Hello

    It would be unwise to try to start without antivirus/antispyware are has just too many real threats and
    methods for malware to attack the system. If you attempt to do if of course you have redundant and
    current backups.

    Here's what I use and recommend: (these are all free and very effective versions.)

    Avast and Prevx proved extremely reliable and compatible with all I have
    launched on them. Microsoft Security Essentials and Prevx have also proven to be very
    reliable and compatible. Use MSE or Avast and Prevx, Prevx 3 but not all.

    Avast Home free - stop any shields is not necessary except leave the file system, Web,.
    Operational network (Script and behavior are also recommended in Ver 6 +).

    Prevx - Home - free

    Windows Firewall

    Windows Defender (is not necessary if you use MSE)

    Protected IE - mode

    IE 8 - SmartScreen filter WE (IE 7 phishing filter)

    I also IE always start with asset if filter InPrivate IE 8.
    (It may temporarily turn off with the little icon to the left of the + bottom
    right of IE)

    Two versions of Avast are available 6.x and 4.8 x

    Avast - home - free - 6.x stop shields you do not use (except files, Web, network, &)
    Shields of behavior) - double click on the icon in the Notification area - real time Orange - click on the
    Shield that you want to stop - STOP. To stop the Orange icon to show an error indicator-
    Click on the Orange icon - top right - settings - click on the status bar - uncheck shields you
    disabled - click OK
    http://www.avast.com/free-antivirus-download

    Avast 4.8 x - home - free - stop shields, you don't need except leaving Standard, Web,.
    and the network running. (Double-click the blue icon - look OK. - upper left - Shields details
    Finish those you don't use).
    http://www.avast.com/free-antivirus-download#TAB4

    Or use Microsoft Security Essentials - free
    http://www.Microsoft.com/Security_Essentials/

    Prevx works well alongside MSE or Avast

    Prevx - home - free small, fast, exceptional protection CLOUD, working with other security
    programs. It is a single scanner, VERY EFFICIENT, if it finds something come back here
    or use Google to see how to remove.
    http://www.prevx.com/   <-->
    http://info.prevx.com/downloadcsi.asp  <-->

    Choice of PCmag editor - Prevx-
    http://www.PCMag.com/Article2/0, 2817,2346862,00.asp

    Also get Malwarebytes - free - use as scanner only. If you ever think malware and that
    would be unusual with Avast and occasional Prevx running with the exception of a low level cookie
    (not much), to UPDATE and then run it as a scanner. I have a lot of scanners and they
    never find anything of note that I started to use this configuration.

    I hope this helps and happy holidays!

  • Photosmart 7510 - I want to use only black ink since I don't have all the need for a color.

    Photosmart 7510 - I want to use only black ink since I mainly use this for work and don't have all the need for a color. If I have more ink, can I just replace the black and it still work? Thank you very much for any information you may have!

    Hello

    I did a few test last year, you can print black only master always need color ink for the printer. Black setting only as a default printer will only print black and it consumes a little over heating of the process color inks. In short, it will not be printed correctly when run out of color ink (s) or does not start at all.

    Kind regards.

  • How to eliminate the need for a password or fingerprint reader to open the computer?

    I wish that my pop just on computer without the using a password or fingerprint reader. I implemented the fingerprint reader, but I don't remember setting up a password so I would just eliminate the need for the fingerprint reader. I know that this makes my computer more vulnerable but I live alone and when someone is more, my children or friends, I wish they were able to get on my computer without calling me more to scan my fingers again and again. I implemented the fingerprint as a fluke reader just to see work and then couldn't figure out how to remove the drive without setting up a password. That's what he said to me when I try to remove the traces of fingers.

    It, S VERY SIMPLE... Click (windows icon) in the lower left corner (which is to start windows), and then select Control Panel and select user accounts. you will see your account name to simply select the option to remove your password and when you restart computer it will start just to the top with you having to connect. bettr to do for your children is for when you go to user accounts is to select Create new account name whatever you want for children do not assign a password to it and make sure that it is just a regular user account and not an administrator account on this way they can't remove anything or make changes to your computer that could damage the operating system. You should really think about it b4 you just let em have a complete control over it.

  • Why my CS6 apps show the need for an update?

    For some reason, in my drop down list creative cloud, my Adobe Photoshop CS6 and my Dreamweaver CS6 show that they must be updated.  I went through and got the error "U44M1P7" and found different solutions.  When I arrived at the Solution #2, I went to try to install the updates manually.  Out of curiosity, I made a command-I on the two applications to see what version I already had - and they are the same version as the last update.  So, in simple terms, the creative cloud app shows the need for an update, but according to the 'latest news', the last update is already installed.  Can someone tell me what could be the problem?  Thanks in advance - Scott

  • What is the need for level 0 and level 1 backup?

    I am a bit confused about the need for level 0 and level 1 backup. Oracle has proposed strategy in 10g creates only level 1 backup continues to not to break and not to create any level of 0 after the first backup of level 0. But I had seen in the document Oracle Database Backup & Recovery basis he suggests to create backup of level 0 on weekly or monthly basis. There?

    Secondly according to my understanding when creating oracle backup of level 1 first creates a level 0 backup that contain also copies of data image files and then apply an incremental copies of the image, once the incremental backup is applied on the copy of the image you don't have to the previous incremental backups. Am I wrong?
    If I'm right, what is the difference between level 0 & backup of level 1? and after the level 0 backup you must also all previous backups.

    PL. help me to clarify my questions in this regard.

    Kind regards

    What is the most reliable in terms of recovery?

    I do not see the differences in terms of recovery, the two strategies are reliable.

    There is an advantage in terms of recovery time expected, Oracle says:

    /*
    Incorporate gradually update the backup in your backup strategy shortens the time of recovery as provided. The reason is that media recovery right now or at some point in the recent past may begin at the time of the last backup of level 1 applied, rather than at the time of the last full database backup.
    */

    In a regular incremental backup strategy you always go back to a level 0 backup and then to apply everything follows level 1 backups + archivelogs. But - for an incremental backup set to day - it's a little tricky to emerging a window of recovery, normally relies on redundancy 1, i.e. that a backup is retained, you cannot go back, this type of backup is designed for a quick and complete recovery.

    But there is a solution (I don't think there is place in EM), even if you're on 10g, see the 11 g documentation, he explains fuller:
