    Hi

    Some companies use third party software for raising PR like Lotus. My SAP SRM is also used by the way of Shopping cart process and uses ECC 6.0 in the back end.

    PR, RO, MR will be done thru these software packages and PO will be created mannually in SAP.

    ME57 can be used to assign source to mass PR's and convert them into PO, SA, wherever the non-assigned PR's can be converted into RFQ in this single transaction.

    Hi,

    Basically MRP is the process which compares the requirement with the available stock and if there exists any shortfall will raise the procurement proposals.

    How ever based upon the requirement for the material one go for manual creation of the PO based upon the PR created and procuring the material using the PO and made available this material by making the GR.This is the usual normal process.

    Regards,
