customizing for consignment process


In the consignment process, do we have to assign the standard purchase organisation to plant in the following path

spro >Enterprise Structure >Assignment >Materials Management >Assign standard purchasing organization to plant

our enterprise structure is like this.

company code: 1000

porg: 2000

plants: 9000, 9001, 9002

enterprise structure assignments are:

porg 2000 has been assigned to plants 9000, 9001 and 9002.

porg 2000 is not assigned to company code ( as per client requirement, since i future new company will come up and only one porg 2000 will procure for both companies).

do we need to assign porg 2000 in above spro settings.

I have reading the help of this spro node, it was mentioned as mentioned below:

sap help:

If several purchasing organizations procure for a certain plant, you can define one of them as the standard purchasing organization for the transactions "pipeline procurement", "consignment" and "stock transfers".

In source determination for stock transfers and consignment, the system automatically utilizes this standard purchasing organization. In the case of goods issues of pipeline materials, the purchasing info records of the standard purchasing organization are read.

Define your standard purchasing organization.

please clear the doubt, is this setting only applicable in case of multiple porg or without this settings my consignment process will work fine?--

is this setting also relevant in case of my enterprise structure or not?
