Source of Supply selection in 3rd party order processing

Hi,

In ByDesign, is there a way to automatically select Source of Supply based on geography, in the TPOP (3rd Party Order Processing) scenario?

Thanks,

Eelco

    Hello Eelco,

    there are two ways to influence source of supply selection for externally fulfilled sales order items ( = TPOP for materials).

    1. Restrict source of supplies like price lists by company. This is a feature that was added in one of the last releases. By this you can at least ensure that certain suppliers will not be considered during automatic source of supply selection. Of course in your case this would only work if each geographical region maps to one company.

    2. Do an add on that during sales order item creation selects the correct supplier as soon as the item is set to external fulfillment. As far as I know the supplier is changeable via PDI.

    I am not aware of any other way to infuence this.

    Best regards,

    Stefan

    Hi Stefan!

    Thanks! I suspect we'll have to investigate #2. We are using Sourcing contracts right now, but that does not give us the granularity we need (a single Company covers multiple countries).
