IBP Application Flow at a Glance

The IBP process includes five phases: Project Management, Demand Plan, Demand Review, Supply Review, and Management Review.

As might be expected, phases must be executed in sequence on any given dataset. However, you can be in different phases on different datasets.

Users in the Process Control group will have the option to load datasets and begin the cycle. To avoid confusion when more than one cycle is in progress, it’s a good idea to establish a convention in your team for labeling your datasets according to the period they relate to.
