    hi,

    outline agreement can be contract and scheduleing agreements...

    Both are used for long time periods...

    For eg in schedule agreement, there are schedule stored ie. no. of dates for which the qty is req. in the industry....

    both can be used as a perdoc for the generation of the PO...

    but there is an added advantage, with schdule agreement we can have further del. schedule generated even if the further req. is seen....but in contracts you need to generated new contract release order for every new requirement....

    For further details pls check the link:

    HI,

    Its also called as a scheduling agreement. Here u maintain an agreement with the vendor to supply the materials based on a delivery schedule.

    You ask the vendor to supply the materials either for a specific amt or specified Qty over a periosd of time. You have to create the delivery schedules accordingly and receive the goods as against the maintained schedules.

    Go to ME38 to find the details for the same.

    Hope it helps
