how to achieve using bpm

Hi Everyone,

The scenario is, once the purchase orders are created in R/3 they are posted to third party system.There the third party system creates invoices for the corresponding PO and sends the invoices back to R/3. It involves validation of messages and triggering alerts.

How shall i approach this scenario using BPM.

Thanks in advance,

Sakthi

    Sakthai,

    What is your third party system and how are you planning to connect XI with your third party system?

      Hi,

      For this u can use a 'switch' step in BPM.

      If u are planning to use sender RFC, then u need to go for Sync/Async bridge.

      steps:

      1. receive(open sync/async)

      2. switch (branches to vendors and conditions specified. Each branch may have a send sync step)

      3. send(Close sync/async, sends back response to RFC)

      Regards,

    Hi,

    The probable steps in BPM are

    1. Receive

    2. send sync to third party systems

    3. validate response message using transformation step(if required separately)

    4. send step to R/3

    steps would be like

    Receive step to receive Order from SAP, call synchronously third party system, check the response from third party and trigger alert in case of problem, call SAP(send step) to post invoice.

    Sakthi,

    Do you mean to say that for the receiving Invoice needs to be validated against the Sending PO?

    First of all:

    I guess Invoice will be generated not immediately after PO creation and it may take a few days.. That case I don't think BPM will be a wise choice.

    I think it will be good if you handle this validation in the receiving R/3 side..

    Thanks,

    Himadri
