Best Practice for Multiple source.

Hello gurus:

The scenario is the following

I have a material which can be purchase from Supplier A o from Supplier B using a 60/40 distribution..

What set of steps should i follow from here to make sure every time a purchase requisition it is triggered from MRP a quota arrangement will be suggested to buy the goods from A and B?

Is it possible to change the quota arrangement once it is confirmed by the MRP?

Some times we will decide the source determination at the time of converting the Purchase Order, how to handle this if there is no master data like quota arrangement?

Regards,

    Create the quota arrangement and in the source list enter 1 for MRP field

    Is it possible to change the quota arrangement once it is confirmed by the MRP?

    quota arrangement can not be changed once it is assigned by MRP except you delete the reqs generated by MRP

    Some times we will decide the source determination at the time of converting the Purchase Order, how to handle this if there is no master data like quota arrangement?

    if oyu don't have quota then system will sugget the source from source list (if you have not make Fix sourcelist in source list)

    Thank You charles..

    I got it .. One More Question .:

    I don't have source list and Quota arrangement .

    Now i am maintaining two info -records for two vendors . Since I don't know what was the ratio at the time of MRP

    i am creating two PO , first assign the Vendor and Converting the Partial PR in to PO, then i am doing it for another Vendor for the same PR .

    Is this the Correct Procedure , Do SAP have any other work around ?

    Thanks

      Why don;t you create the source list and quota arrangement?

      because if you dont have the source list and quota then you have to do manually only.

      Source list and quota is part of optimize purchase, so conveince your client to have those master data to make oyur buying process smoother.
