Definicja aggregate (SCM-APO-FCS)
An APO aggregate contains a subset of the characteristics in the master planning object structure.
The creation and use of aggregates is optional. The data is always saved on the lowest level of detail. If aggregates exist, the system saves the planning data on the defined aggregate levels as well as on the lowest level of detail. The data is saved twice, but consistently; that is, the sum of the details equals the aggregate value.
The aggregates in APO are not the same as those in the Business Information Warehouse (BW), but they have the same purpose: to speed up data access and therefore increase performance. SAP recommends that you use aggregates in Demand Planning and Supply Network Planning.
