Purchasing control at approved suppliers by Manufacturing location

Hi experts!

We have a requirement to control purchase orders at approved suppliers by Supplier/Manufacturing location/Material/Receiving Plant. System should not allow Purchase orders if above level approval is not met. How to track Manufacturing locations for each supplier and validate that at the time of PO creation to check if it is approved for material and plant or not. I am looking for solutions to achieve this systematically.

This is required to accommodate FSMA requirements.

Any pointers towards the solutions will be appreciated and rewarded.

Thank you!

Keval

    This is STANDARD functionality your purchasing consultant should be aware of.

    It is the use of Manufacturing Part Numbers. Once you use this process the QA people have to set up Q-info records (QI01/QI02/QI03)at the plant for the material/manufacturing site/supplier.

    You also have to maintain additional entries in the AMPL table, (transaction MP01/MP02).

    Q-info records can be given an expiration date and maximum order quantities as well as various statuses. These can then impact if a purchase order can be issued.

    Thank you Craig for your time and response.

    I also want to enhance my question to add material/receiving plant/vendor/vendor's manufacturing location level approval that i want to validate at the time of PO creation. Do you still think MPN would work for that?

    Thank you!
