PO Creation Process in Classic Scenario

Hi

I want to understand the exact PO creation process in a classic scenario. Once the buyer clicks on 'Create Purchase Order' in the SOCO, what are the series of steps that are triggered till the PO number gets displayed in the SOCO screen?

I assume that the shopping cart has all required data and ready for PO creation.

With Regards

Sathya

    Hi,

    The shopping cart is created and approved in SAP Enterprise Buyer. The remainder of the procurement process takes place in the backend ERP system(s) and all other follow-on documents, such the purchase order, goods receipt/service entry sheet and invoice, are located there. With SAP Supplier Self-Services, you have partial supplier involvement for the operational procurement business scenarios when buying materials. There is no support for services.

    Shopping Cart

    SAP Enterprise Buyer

    Approval

    SAP Enterprise Buyer

    Purchase Order

    Backend system

    Goods Receipt

    Backend system (can be pre-entered in SAP Enterprise Buyer)

    Invoice

    Backend system (can be pre-entered in SAP Enterprise Buyer)

    Please award the points if it helps.

    BR,

    Classic scenario, so follow on documents are created in backend only (R/3)

    There is a BAPI call made to R/3 system (BAPI_PO_CREATE / BAPI_PO_CREATE1)

    that creates Purchase order in the specified destination.

    CLEAN_REQ_REQ_UP program , scheduled at regular interval updates the SC with PO details as it creates in backend.
