Default procurement type in network sap ps

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.

    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

    • 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"

    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.
