Purchase Order Response, tolerance on QTY

Hi Folks,

Just a quick question.

Scenario is as follows.

PO created for 2 EA a 12 USD per EA., there is no tolerance groups assigned to either USER or VENDOR.

In the POR I create a line with the price at 14. When I do the check is tells me that the price is outside the tolerance. Thats OK!!!!

When I create a line with price of 12 and qty of let say 120 I get no error message.

Is this correct?

No matter what I do I can not get it to issue a warning that QTY is to high mor something like that.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

Thomas

    Hi

    <i>Depending on your SRM system, You need to implement your own logic in the <b>BBP_DOC_CHECK_BADI</b> Implementation using <u>Transaction - SE18 / SE19</u> in this case.</i>

    Hope this will help.

    Regards

      Hi,

      I do not understand this.

      We are on SRM server 5.5.

      In IMG it says that you can use the Tolerance keys PM, PZ and PR. (See below).

      However I can not get them to kick in :o(

      Anny advice?

      /Thomas

      In IMG for SRM you can read this in the IMG Doc.

      "Tolerances for purchase order confirmations

      SAP Enterprise Buyer uses the tolerances that you define here for the automatic data transfer from the purchase order confirmation to the purchase order and also for the manual data check in the vendor information. If the tolerances are exceeded, the system issues I messages.

      You can assign the following tolerance keys:

      PM: Quantity variance (converted to currency amount)

      If a confirmation is expected for a purchase order item, the system calculates the purchase order confirmation net price multiplied by the purchase order confirmation quantity. The system compares this sum with the defined upper and lower limits. You can also define percentage limits for the quantity variance check. Then the percentage variance from the expected quantity calculated - independent of the purchase order price - and this is compared with the defined percentage limits.

      PZ: Time overrun compared to purchase order

      The system determines how many days the delivery date has exceeded the planned time interval by. If the delivery date of the purchase order confirmation is earlier than the delivery date of the purchase order, the system takes the purchase order date - the confirmation date; If the delivery date of the purchase order confirmation is later than the delivery date of the purchase order, the system takes the purchase order confirmation date - the purchase order date. The system compares the number of days with the defined absolute upper limit.

      PR: Price variance (value variance from expected value)

      Here the variance between the purchase order confirmation and the purchase order price is checked. The system determines for the items the price variance as the product of the quantity in the purchase order confirmation multiplied by the price in the purchase order confirmation, and it compares this variance with the defined percentage and absolute upper and lower limits."
