    Dear gaurav

    In Purchasing, Outline agreement on the basis of which materials are procured at a series of predefined points in time over a certain period. Scheduling agreement releases provide information to vendors regarding the quantities of a material that are to be delivered and the desired delivery dates. A scheduling agreement release enables you to record the current status of the lines of a delivery schedule stored in the system for a scheduling agreement item and then transmit this status to the vendor.

    From SD point of view, In the last decade, component suppliers have had to follow the example of the manufacturers they supply: to survive the changing market, they have had to reduce costs, increase quality, and increase speed of delivery.

    The push to improve business processes has brought about many innovations in the industry, such as just-in-time processing. SAP has taken these innovations into account to provide component suppliers with the functions they need to better manage their business.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    A customer scheduling agreement is an outline agreement with the customer containing delivery quantities and dates. These are then entered as schedule lines in a delivery schedule. You can either create schedule lines when you create the scheduling agreement or you can create them later.

    You fulfill a scheduling agreement by creating the deliveries in the schedule as they become due. You process deliveries for a scheduling agreement in exactly the same way as you process a normal delivery. After you have carried out the delivery, the system updates the Delivered quantity field in the scheduling agreement item with the delivery quantity.

    Regards

    SD
