    • Duet: optimizing demand planning. Duet presents SAP information and processes in the familiar Microsoft Office environment. This brief demonstration shows how Duet allows you to create a demand planning sheet, change a demand plan, and review a demand plan. Enabling you to decentralize demand planning, accelerate planning cycles, and achieve greater planning accuracy and flexibility. Create a demand planning sheet. Jon Morris is a demand planner. He uses Duet to create a demand planning sheet to let sales reps submit demand forecasts. Duet provides a predefined Microsoft Excel template. It includes a wizard that makes creation of the planning sheet fast and easy. Jon selects the relevant sales region and time frame. He also specifies a sales rep, Paul Singh. Jon selects key figures for the plan from a predefined list. He can change the order of figures as necessary. He can also choose which figures are read-only and which Paul can change. Next, he selects characteristics for the planning sheet from a predefined list. The value of each characteristic can be associated with a description, such as a product name, or with an ID, such as a product number. Jon selects "product" as the characteristic to show on the planning sheet. He also selects Paul's customers. If necessary, he can add other customers that Paul deals with. Finally, he specifies the planning horizon, which he extends to six months. Jon receives a summary of the planning configuration. He can review key figures and characteristics. The demand planning sheet is complete, so Jon saves it to a shared drive that Paul can access. Change a demand plan. Paul Singh is a sales rep. He uses Duet to access the demand planning sheet that Jon created for him. Paul sees a simplified demand planning toolbar, which is appropriate for his role. He checks to see which customers were configured for his planning sheet. He can narrow his view to concentrate on a single customer. If necessary, he can make manual adjustments. He can easily verify which data has changed. The status sheet shows that Paul's changes are pending. When Paul saves the data to SAP Supply Chain Management, the demand plan is automatically updated. Review a demand plan. Jon has received demand plans from several sales reps. He needs to review the changes that were made. Jon gets a more detailed view of the demand plans, which he can configure to meet his needs. By default, he sees all customers. He can easily narrow his view to look at a single characteristic, such as location. The planning data is updated automatically. Jon can also customize his view of the location characteristic. Finally, Jon updates the demand plan with the new data. With Duet, you can decentralize demand planning, accelerate planning cycles, and achieve greater planning accuracy and flexibility.
