SAP RETAIL F&R with Source list -Contracts in SOS


Current Situation: There is a Direct delivery process by Vendors for Beverage articles for all Store Chains with franchise model . The Purchase organization is common. During F&R runs, the Order Proposals are created for Regular Vendor for these Articles. Vendors deliver Beverages to the Stores directly.

New Requirement: For certain type of existing Store Chains (Distribution Chains), There is a need to create Order proposals for Internal Distribution First and then ordered to External Vendor via collective PO process.

We had similar requirement a year back where for a certain Distribution of Chains Stores, there was a need to give priority to a new Vendor apart from the Regular Vendor, but that time Business agreed to have a new Purchase organization for those Distribution Chain Stores through which we could steer the vendor determination.

Now for the current new requirement, we do not have option to use a Unique Purchase organization as these are existing Stores and only for Beverage Articles we have this need.

Now to evaluate a solution we thought of maintaining Source List . Value or Quantity Contract created for Internal Distribution Center Vendor.

We created Source list in Article Master in ERP , Purchasing view, and sent the data to F&R,

But in F&R I still cannot see the Source of Supply Type 2.

Question: How to get Source of Supply as Contracts as procurement priroity 1 for certain Stores in F&R SOS?


Source of supply Type

1Scheduling agreement


3Info record

4internal replenishment

  • You can decide whether the system should consider source list lanes (that is, transportation lanes based on source list entries in the SAP ERP system). Since source list lanes only contain information regarding the source of supply assignment, the system determines the replenishment-relevant data from a corresponding purchase info record or internal transportation lane (that is, a lane with the same source location, target location, product, and purchasing organization as the source list lane). If you choose this setting, the system always gives priority to source list lanes over other transportation lanes during source of supply determination, and evaluates the possible source list lanes for a location product.

To use the source list lane option mentioned above, you must activate the business function SCM-FRE, Replenishment and Optimization in F&R (SCM_FRE_OPTIM).
