Hello, for the next few minutes, we're going through review, production planning, and SAP Business ByDesign. Now we're starting off on our supply planning screen. We're going to simply select the core assembly here, and then we'll open this plan up.

Now, supply planning and business by design is simply a reaction to demand a demand, whether it be through demand planning or forecasting or actual demand. Uh, some examples that we have up here at the top. Our customer demand independent demand and demand plans refer to the forecast that we see here. Now. We can also get a quick glimpse into plan receipts and release receipts as well as any current available stock. Now, once we run planning, whether it be single bomb or multibeam multibeam, just simply looking at the various components that are required for this product and running any planning in order to meet that demand as well. Sap will make recommendations on any production that needs to take place in order to fulfill this demand and meet this demand. Now as we scroll down, we'll see various production requests. These are simply proposals that we've already released over to production, but down here we see your production proposal for a quantity of 100. Now from here we can explore this a little bit. We can open the material flow material flow, so they're going to give us insight into any other production for subcomponents production proposals, purchased proposals and so on that need to be created.

Once we're happy with what we've seen, we can make our selection and then release this out over to production. Now once we save this, then a production requests and production order can then be created and then we can ultimately fulfill this demand through the production order that we see here. Prexion requests 50 1:56, and that is a quick glimpse into production planning within sap business bydesign. Thank you.
