    Hi,

    1. if you use source list for materials, you can list them. Other way is to list the purchasing info records (Logistics>MM>Purchasing>Master Data>...)

    2. You have release strategy configuration for PR, PO, SES so depends on which one you refers to. You may set the system to work at header level, or item wise, so in fact the answer is both, you just need to customize them to work as you define.

    I would suggest to check out the procurement process to determine how should be release strategy set. By this I mean, if PR is just a requisition, with no vendor or price, just the document to identify a need, then you will have to release item by item by the business owner. If your business is set in a way where plant identify business divisions, you may use plant as a parameter for RS determination. if not, you will have to use other characteristics to identify the correct release procedure, such as material group, profit center, etc. I believe that you need to perform a deep analysis of the business need to identify the key figures to determine the correct schema. Be also careful with plant definitions as the documents may have items with different plant assignments.

    Dear Sanjeev,

    1 Please tell me the Tcode to know list of vendors with material(s) that can be supplied by them.

    ME13 - Info Records

    ME03 - Source List

    You could also use Contracts (ME33K) or Scheduling Agreemtns (ME33L)

    2. Release Strategy

    Procedure Without Classification (Requisition Items Only):

    The conditions can be based on one of the following item characteristics or a combination of these:

    Account assignment category

    Material group

    Plant

    Total value

    Procedure with Classification (Requisitions and External Purchasing Documents):

    The conditions are formulated via characteristic values and are stored in the Purchasing Customizing facility (under the release strategy).

    Regards,

    Naveen.

    1 Please tell me the Tcode to know list of vendors with material(s) that can be supplied by them.

    ME1M or ME1L to see the list of vendor and mateirl combination. if you have source list funcitonality activated then you can check same in ME0M

    2 Release strategy is plant specific or global?

    when you define the Release strategy in the system, it is automatically global level becuase you are defining at client level but you can define the value of your release strategy in classification at plant level

    so that way you can control at plant level but the definition is at plant level.

    So any one try to define the release strategy in same client has to use same class but the valueof release strtegy can be diff.

    now you have global implementation then you have to make classification such a way so it can be useful for every one.
