Hello PS Experts,

Currently I am facing a problem when i assign a material component with Item category as "N" i.e. Non Stock Item, system does not give a pop up to for selection of procurement type as either "PR" or "3rd Party" order or no pop up to get the address to be delivered/ship to party.

In my case, I have same material with exactly same settings in two different plants.

Material Mat1 Plant A

Material Mat1 Plant B

Both materials are under same sales organization.

When the material is getting assigned manually in the Network order (created via assembly processing) for Plant A when item category "N" is selected, the system shows a pop up for address selection and then proceeds with "3rd Party" order.

While when the same material is assigned under Plant B with item category "N", no Pop up for address selection and the system picks the type as "Reservation for Sales Order".

I am not able to find any solution to this problem.

I would like to get same procurement type when it is assigned to plant A.

Your help is highly appreciated.

Thanks

Samrat

Hi Samrat,

This pop-up will be related to the Network Profile.

Go to OPUU and enter the default procurement indicator so system will pick it when you are using materials

Hello Maria,

Thanks for the reply.

The network profile is same in both the cases of assignment of material. The default item category is taken as N as the materials are assigned under ONE network for same activity.

The only difference is in one assignment plant is A and in another plant is B. What could be the settings causing the change in procurement from "3rd Party" in Plant A while "Reservation for Sales Order" in Plant B while assignment ?

Hope I am able to clear the question.

Thanks

Hi Samrat,

If both network profiles are same, then check the Procurement indicator config OPS8 in PS.

If the procurement indicator is set with 3rd party, you will get the pop-up message to enter the delivery address.

Hi Terence,

I am having same network profile and thus same procurement indicator. The OPS8 configuration settings are having PR for Network and 3rd Party order marked checked with default item category as "N" for procurement indicator.

So I am still awaiting for the answer on this :(

Hi Samrat,

With respect to your setting, Pop_up should come. Since you are having assembly, check out this note, whether any modification is code done to avoid the pop-up

841474 - Parameter effectivity pop up for material components.

"After implementing this modification , you will not get a parameter effectivity pop up box to transfer parameter effectivity for materials. However in case of configurable materials, parameter effectivity pop up will still come"

Regards

Terence

Check if you have the same Procurement Indicator for the Component in Proc. Parameter tab (Activity-Component), in OPS8 you will have an option for selecting 3rd party, with this setting you will get the popup every time you assign a Non-Stock Material Component to an activity.

Hello Pavan.

Thanks for the reply. Please find the attached document and let me know if the issue is clear ?

There is no priority set up done in OPS8 for procurement type used in network profile. In both cases it is same.

Material 1 assignment to network

Delivery Pop up comes to get address details

Material data can be seen

For Material 2 under same activity

Hope now it is bit clear!!!
