Purchase Orders to have 'required date' for items

Hi there. I'm trying to streamline a new client's purchasing process so that all purchase proposals are turned into purchase requests (purchase proposal release run) and all purchase requests are turned into PO's by supplier (purchase request bundling run). The issue is that when the client opens the PO's by supplier, they are unable to tell if any of the line items on the PO are 'past due'. It would be helpful if there was a required date (i.e. the date from the supply planning/products window when demand exceeds supply) so that the buyer could better understand what needs to be expedited for that particular supplier. Going into the exceptions by product just seems very tedious given the frequency of changes this business has.

Please advise if there's a way for this to happen.

Thanks.

Julie

    Hi,

    Are the Purchase order in SRM (Object bus2201)?

    Is the creation date listed in POWL helpful for the purchaser to sort the request by supplier ?

    Best regards
