procure direct and indirect material in the same Purchase order

Dear, Gurus

please Advice\Help

How do you procure both direct(internal) goods procurement and Indirect (external) goods procurement using the same Purchase Order (PO)


I'm supporting a productions company, which procures its products internally from the main headquarters. the products fall into categories of Direct and Indirect , i.e. stock materials and stock -transportation-service respectively. therefore I want to include both transport(indirect) and stock material(direct) in the same Purchase order.

Your Assistance is highly appreciated

Regards

Peace

    Hi,

    You procure product material(M1) with a purchase order and also produce(with production order with raw materials) same product material(M1) in your company- Then with product material(M1) with split valuation with valuation types

    Valuation type------ Types of material

    ZVT1----------------Internal production

    ZVT2----------------External procurement.

    If you have different organization units and selling products material from Plant(P2), then transfer ( or use STO Process) material M1 with ZVT1 from plant(P1) to Plant(P2) once production completed in plant(P1)

    Based on purchasing of product material M1 with ZVT2 from Plant(P1) or Plant(P2)- you can decide for selling nature.

    Hi,

    May I know what difficulty you are facing in adding direct and indirect material in the same PO. There is no restriction in standard SAP, but you can restrict the same with PO document type (field selection for account assignment category field in PO). Let us know what issue you are facing.
