    Hi,

    order to cash is from sales order to delivery to billing. At each of these stages various processes are set up to facilitate better handling of the sap sd business process.

    To configure order part of it, you need to have sales documents ( Configure at VOV8). Need a customer master at XD01. Material master at MM01.

    for delivery , use OVLK to configure delivery documents

    billing at VOFA. configure your item categories at VOV4.

    Setup your pricing at VOK0.

    sp

    Yet the info would be incomplete as we can set up a number of other processes.

    However you can have a basic run with these settings.

    Thanks & Regards

    Hello

    <b>Order to Cash cycle</b> is a comprehensive process which encompass broadly Order management, invoicing, collections/credit management, cash application and sometimes relating to posting and reporting.

    To simplify Order to Cash cycle, we can break it into 2 stages:

    1. order-to-invoice (also called revenue accounting in some industries) and

    2. Invoice-to-cash. (The term “order-to-payment” is generally used to describe A/P processes.)

    The Order-to-Cash Management describes the entire process chain for a standard sales order process with a customer. The business process encompasses all steps, from creating an order to recording payment by the customer.

    When an order is entered, an availability check is performed for the material and the shipping point is determined automatically. Depending on the customer and material, some special events are set up for the order entry. For specific customers, upon entry of a material, the system may also propose a material for substitution. Also, if a certain order quantity is reached, the system may also generate a new item with free goods. This document also demonstrates material exclusion, which is when a material cannot be sold to a customer for some reason.

    A delivery is created, combined into shipments (for transportation planning), then picked, and a goods issue is posted. In the subsequent billing process, an invoice is created and, if necessary, released to financial accounting. Incoming payments are documented in payment processing and then posted in financials.

    <b>Sub modules in Order to Cash can be:</b>

    1. CRM

    2. Order processing

    3. Foreign Trade management[export]

    4. Billing and collection Management

    5. Customer Agreement Monitoring.

    Refer to the link Order-to-cashhttp://www50.sap.com/businessmaps/FBB57FF1DEE9419FB5D4F2F82468EEAD.htm">Order-to-cash> for complete reference.

    Order to cash is a normal sales cycle. The process is as follows:

    Inquiry

    Quotation

    Sales order

    Delivery (create Delivery / Pick / Pack / PGI)

    Invoicing

    Receipt of payment from customer.

    You can also fefer to the the document W40 - Order to Cash in the link as under:

    Yes Automation is possible.

    Once you create an order in CRM, through delta upload, it is replicated in R/3. Similarly I suppose in SRM also there is a possibility to link & automate for procurement.

    If you want complete automation from Dales order to invoicing, then you have to get abap development done.
