  • Hi,

    Would you please explain the business process more in detail? As to when and why emergency Sales Order is created and how(Z1EM) is different from (ZISD)? What is the business objective for doing this?



  • Did you try setting up alternative document types in VOV8? The feature has some limitations, but I think that this is the only option to change order type after saving if you cannot afford any development budget.

    To be fair, I would probably challenge the design proposal and look for workarounds to map the business process without modifying the document type.

    Is changing from emergency to standard order the only possible approach to deliver what the business needs?

    Ofcourse business process related question comes up - Why does the business not create a delivery within 3 days for the Emergency order?

    SAP design proposal -

    - Setup copy control between Emergency order type to Normal order type

    - Create Reason for Rejection (or use existing)

    If delivery not created with in 3 days then CS department should follow below steps

    1. Create Normal order with reference to Emergency order. VA01

    2. Set Reason for Rejection in the Emergency order. VA02

    • "Of course Business will inform, ask, get approval from the Customer. But that will happen outside SAP. Is my experience."

      My point exactly, this is why I say that the process cannot be easily automated - some of the emergency orders should stay rejected with rejection reason A, some will be rejected with reason B and used as a basis for creating a standard order. There is the inconvenience that the new order will go through credit check and then probably via the 'regular' delivery schedule, which may mean that the customer will get the products later than if he asked for standard processing in the beginning...

      I was unsure if the OP expected a fully automated solution, which is why I mentioned that it would make no sense trying to eliminate the decision part.
