    Hi,

    release strategy for sales orders are always defined in a status profile.

    Procedure

    First, you create a status profile.

    Assign the corresponding object types to the status profile.

    Define the required user statuses in the status profile.

    Assign the user statuses to the corresponding business transactions.

    If necessary, translate the status profile and the user statuses.

    To be able to work with a status profile, you first need to assign it to the order type in Customizing (Customizing for Shop Floor Control by choosing Master Data - Order - Define Order Types).

    For information on how to create a status profile, see Customizing for Shop Floor Control by choosing Master Data - Order - Define Status Profile.

    You have to activate the customized status profile.

    Regards,

    kishore.

    Dear Ashis

    The release strategy defines the approval process for purchase requisitions. The strategy specifies the release codes with which a complete purchase requisition or a requisition item must be released (approved) and the sequence in which approvals have to be given. You can assign a maximum of eight release codes to the release strategy.

    The assignment of the release strategy to a complete purchase requisition or a requisition item is based on the release conditions.

    If the release strategy assignment process is carried out on an item-by-item basis, a single purchase requisition can contain items with different strategies. The individual items can thus be released separately for the issue of RFQs or Pos.

    In the Sales and Distribution, each employee may prepare and submit purchase requisitions for PCs. Depending on the total order value purchase requisitions are subject to an approval procedure as follows:

    => Release strategy KF (cost center release)

    Requisitions with an order value of up to $10,000 are subject to the following procedure: First, a member of the Technical Services Department must check the configuration of the PCs. Different members of Technical Services are responsible for checking, depending on the purpose for which the PC is to be used (e.g. for scientific or administrative purposes). At this point, an alternative release is possible, i.e. only one of the staff members need release the requisition item.

    After this, the Sales Manager must approve the requisition, since it is the latter’s cost center that will be charged.

    => Release strategy TF (technical release)

    If the order value exceeds $10,000, the release procedure is basically the same as in the case of requisitions whose total value does not exceed $10,000. However, a member of the Executive Board is additionally required to signify approval (effect release).

    thanks
