    >Enter the Valid to date for the quota arrangement item.

    > We can only define continuous validity periods for one material. In the first interval, the system sets the current date in the Valid from field. The Valid from dates of the other intervals are set continuously so that the day after the end date of the last quota item is set as the start date for the next item.

    > If we want to work with splitting quota arrangements, we will enter a minimum quantity here.

    Quota arrangement cannot split the single requirement qty (PR/PO) among several vendors insted it allocates the total single required qty to one vendor.

    Quota arrangement must be activated for a material by selecting quota arrangement usage field in material master purchasing veiw.

    Purchase info records must be maintained in advance with the material and vendors whom you are considering in quota arrangement.

    Quota arrangement usage will determine for which procurement options/documents.

    Hope this will help.

    Hi,

    If you maintainquota arrangement, then it applies to all PRs (manually generated as well as system generated). The only difference is that -

    1) For manually generated PRs the total quantity will be allocated to next valid vendor. For this to happen, go to transaction ME56 (assign source). Select your manually generated PR & click on button assign. System will assign the valid source to the PR. The PR quantity will not be split in this case. After the source assignment, you can create the PO on the assigned vendor or you can change the vendor manuly, in which case system will issue warning message 'Vendor is different as per quota arrangement'. You can opt to proceed if your desire. This assigned / ordered quantity will be updated in the quota arrangement as Quota Allocated quantity & nex valid vendor will be calculated.

    2) For system generated PR, the requirement quantity may be splitt depending upon the the lot size you have selected for the matsreial master. (For example - Fixing & splitting). System will generate PR for each assigned vendor with the quantity as quantity allocated to each vendor as per quota arrangement. You may convert these PRs into POs on each vendor. This assigned quantity will be updated in the quota arrangement as 'Quota Arrangement'.

    3) If you have not selected the lot size having splitting indicator, then the quantity will not be splitt among different vendors maintained in the quota arrangement, but the next valid vendor will be calculated. The vendor having minimum quota rating will be the valid source & the quota rating will be calculated as (Quota Allocated quantity + quota base quantity) / Quota. This assigned quantity is updated in the quota arrangement as quota allocated quantity & then during next MRP run next valid vendor will be allocated to the new PR.

    Hope this is clear.

    Regards,

    Prashant

    Hi,

    If you are having 4 vendor and quota arrangement is maintained then you should run MRP for your plant which is the Ideal situation

    In the source list in MRP column 2 will be entered.

    Scheduling agreement is made for the material is made for all the 4 vendors ,depending upon the reqd qty, the schedules will be populated AUTOMATICALLY.

    if you want to convert the PR manually , P.O will be created based on the quota arrangement
