Purchasing Group and User Assignment

Hi,

I have created an user ID "User1" (assume CP, S also created for it) and assigned

to the Purchasing Group "P01" ( "O" level ).

what is the use of assiging the user ID "user1" to the Purchasing Group "P01" ?

Can I assign the User ID "User1" to the multiple Purchasing Groups ?

SRM Version : 5.0 - Extended classic Scenario

With regards,

Pranav

    Hi Nishant & Ramki

    Nishant says

    >>> Assignment of User ID to multiple Purchasing Groups is possible

    Ramki says

    >>> You can assign to only one p.grp (say, 'P01')

    I am not sure which one is right. Pls. help

    Ramki,

    >>> Whenever this user tries to create the PO etc, P01 is defaulted

    I believe that when the user creates SC also P01 will be defaulted. But if needed that user can choose other purchasing group if available. Am I right ?

    • 2) Right.

      4) In PPOMA_BBP, the node under which a user is created is his department (it may not have been called department -- it may be some purchasing org, may be administration dept, HR dept...whatever you defined it as).

      Product category is not for user..it is what you are using in shopping cart-item.

    Hi Pranav,

    Example: User A orders a material from product category ‘Office supply’ via shopping cart:

    1) System will check which purchasing organizations can potentially procure for the department of user A (Organizational Responsibility).

    2)Assignment of User ID to multiple Purchasing Groups is possible.If system finds several purchasing groups that are responsible for the same department and the same product category it will take the first in the table.

    Regards,Nishant

    Hi Pranav

    You cannot assign the user 'User1' to multiple purchasing groups.

    You can assign to only one p.grp (say, 'P01'). Whenever this user tries to create the PO etc, P01 is defaulted. If you want to use any other purchasing group, you can select it and use.

    Best regards
