About Release Procedure of PR.

Hi SAP Gurus,

1>If we will take account assignment, Purchase requisition valuation price, and Material group as catechistic for release procedure of PR. Then my question is whether the release strategy tab will populate in the PR only if the all the value as per the release strategy will meet?

2>My 2nd doubt is can we take the price as a releasing factor for PR. Could you please explain me this part ( on the PR Valuation price). Whether it will take the valuation price or the total value of the PR?

    Two types of release procedures are there

    1. With classification (Header level release i.e overall release can be possible)

    2. Without classification (Item level release)

    Release procedure without classification can be configured only for purchase requisition.

    For PR at any given time only one release procedure can be active

    Release procedure for PR without Classifications:


    1.Release Codes: Release codes are the approved hierarchy or levels involved in releasing of a document. (Max: 8 approve levels Ex: CEO, GM, Mgr etc)

    2.Release Indicators: Used to determine the status of purchase document. Ex: Blocked, Relesed for RFQ/Q or for PO.

    3.Release indicator assignment: In this activity we will define the status of purchasing document at each approval level.

    Release Prerequsites:

    1. Sequence of release

    2. Release strategy (It is the combination of release pre-requisites and release indicator)

    Determination of release strategy:

    Hence we will configure based on what criteria, or based on what variables the release strategy is going to be effected. Ex: Item Value, Plant, Material group etc.

    Navigation: MM-> Purchasing->PR->release procedure-> Setup procedure without classification

    1. Select release codes

    2. Release indicator

    3. Assign release indicators

    4. Release points - prerequisites

    5. Determination of release strategy
