Purchasing Group getting changed while transfer Requirement in SRM

Hi,

We are implementing SRM 5.0 in classic. Various product category and P grp combination profiles are maintained for PDP transfer. The normal transfer was initially working fine.

From past few days only, all the PRs are getting transferred with a default P - Grp. i.e. even if the Pgrp in PR is 'A' or 'B' it changes to a default P grp 'C' when the requirement is displayed in the SOCO. All the P grp are available in the Org structure as well.

I checked all the PDP settings which look fine as earlier it was working ok. Can anyone give a diagonosis for this issue?

Can it be related to the Workload distribution (automatic).

Thanks in Advance for replies.

Regards

Hussain

    even though you link the backend porg & pgrp to SRM org units in the org structure

    there is no real time linking between the ECC pgrp and these resp org units

    depending upon the prod cat and dept responciblity of pgrps in SRM

    the responcible PGRPs are derived in SRM while creation of external SC

    if many options are these then the org data redeteminaiton is done and lowest are picked up as responcible PORG & PGRP

    hence you are getting diff PGRP after ECC PR transfer

    to align the external SC to ur ECC PR PGRP you need to implement the logic with the help of follow BADIS

    BBP_PGRP_ASSIGN_BADI,

    BBP_DOC_CHANGE_BADI

      Hi Disha,

      Yes we faced the issue earlier, Then we realized that if you maintain setting "Backend purchasing groups responcible" and your org structure does not have a Local unit, then you can transfer the PRs with backend P grps.

      However after some unknown event, the P grp is now getting defaulted to fixed single Pgr.

    Hi,

    When you transfer the PR from R/3 to SRM,by default,the Porg and Pgrp values in SC are those corresponsing to the Local Porg /Pgrp defined in the entry channel in SRM org structure.

    If you need to set thecorrect values for the Porg /Pgrp for the user(as defined in SRM org structure),then implemnet the BADI "BBP_DOC_CHNAGE_BADI".

    See the foll threads for more details:

    Probably, there would be an implementation active for one of the Puchasing group badis.

    There are three badi's / methods for purchaisng group default or derivation on the SC.

    If the badi's are not active, check for the Purhasing group assignment for the RFC user.

    Please let me know if my thoughts are correct.
