SAP Business One Forecasting

SAP Business One has included forecasting in version 8.8.2 and higher.

Go ahead, try it. Generate forecasts using the various methods and options and see what results you get.  Create a forecast scenerio for each method so you can compare the results and see what works best for you.

As long as you don’t include the specific forecast in the MRP Planning Wizard, they won’t be considered in your actual planning.
