    quota based quantity is provided only in case u r adding a new vendor to the qutoa arrangement and this value is calulated automatically by the system and u can find that option in tcode meq1 in menu bar extras

    next thing is allocated quantity this is nothing but the quantity u have orderd to the vendor till date and this is automatically updated in the screen as u can see that this option is adisplay mode field

    example

    suppose u wan to issue a po to the vednor which is listed in quta arrangement

    and u issued 199 pc of po then this quantity will be updated inquota automatically

    system copies the value of pr ,po depending upon the setting of quota arr usage value in material master

    if u need more detail do write in thread i will explain to u from the scratch

    Dear Prakash,

    Please understand terms as below,

    Quota Rating = Quota allocated Qty +Quota Base Qty /Quota

    Quota Base Qty : Quantity used for manual control of the quota Arrangement ( For example new source is included)

    Quota : Number that determines how requirement are apportioned among various sources .Decided by a Purchasing people based on confidence on source.

    I source determination source with lowest quota arrangement will always be assigned

    Example

    Source Quota Quota allocated Qty Quota Rating

    M 1 100 100

    N 2 150 75

    O 3 75 25 *

    In above case vendor O will be assigned as low Rating *

    Now quota Base Qty will come into picture when new supplier is introduced. As you have seen that vendor with low quota Rating is assigned .In case of new supplier as no allocated qty earlier its Quota rating will always be low & all Qty will be allocated to him.To prevent this Base qty is added to allocated Qty so that accordingly it will determined accordingly

    If Quota base Qty is 100 & quota is 2

    For new vendor X Rating will be

    Quota rating = 100 + 0 / 2 = 50

    I hope this gives you entire clarity.

    If useful reward points,

    HI Prakash,

    Allocated Quota Qty is nothing but when u create a PR based on the quota rating the system will select one vendor , so what ever the qty in the PR, once u save the PR,it will be the allocated qty.

    Quota base qty is nothing but to calculate the quota for the given vendors, normally which ever the vendor having low quota rating the system will selec that vendor, say u have 3 vendors, for six month u are using the three vendors, there will some allocated qty for all the three vendor, if the client want to add one more vendor obviously the quota rating for the new vendor will be very low and the system will keep on allocating the PR qty to the new vendor, to avoid that either we can give the qty for quota base qty or we can do the system to calculate the quota base qty.

    hope it will be celar the doubt

    reward if usefull.

    Regards,

    Nagarajan
