Converting Purchase Requisition into a reservation

Hi Experts,

We are an Oil company with operations in remote areas in different countries. We are trying to automate our supply chain process with the objective of capturing material request from operation department in SAP. Right now ops. folks at remote sites create material request in excel. We would like them to create a purchase requisition in SAP (ME51n) which will be subject to release strategy. Once, it is approved, PR will reach to the respective buyer in the city and he will convert PR into PO and also create a reservation in SAP ( MB21, mvt. type 311) so that once material physically arrives (which could take up to 90 days), warehouse men at central warehouse (CWH) can run the pick list transaction and transfer the inventory from CWH Sloc to remote SLoc with reference to the reservation already created. Once material physically reaches to remote locations, warehouse man at remote sites can issue it (MB1A- Mvt. type 201) to the respective cost center as per the requirement.

I know std. SAP converts reservations into requisitions but is there any way we can convert purchase requisitions into a reservation?

Thanks,

Syd.

    • download the wanted purchase requisitions from table EBAN, and then use them as source in LSMW to create reservations.

      An ABAPer is probably able to give you a selection screen and based on the input a report reads then the data directly from EBAN table to create reservations via BAPI_RESERVATION_CREATE1
