hello ,

the scenario is that the current implementation scope has ETO, MTO, MTS, and also their is a need for PS as per the business needs, but was wondering if there is a work around for PS in the above 3 options, i guess the good start would be to see what is the difference between ETO and PS, i am not that familiar with PS, so that is why i am posting this question.

replies would be appreciated

    Sorry wrong info, ETO is not in the scope, actually ETO is in PS, what would be a work around of it in SAP with no PS module installed.

    this is where a clear understanding of ETO is

    "We can call ETO as pre sales activity which involves exclusively for new product development, for which there will be a separate department to look after these sort of activities.

    study feasibility report

    Inform customer whether the development is feasible or not

    If feasible, give a quote with development cost

    If customer approved the quote, ask for tool cost

    Once tool cost is received, develop a die for tooling

    Indicate a tentative despatch plan of pilot samples

    Prepare drawing according to customer spec

    Submit samples for customer approval

    If approved, transfer the drawings to delivering plant

    If not approved, study customer comments and redespatch samples for approval

    Whereas, in MTO scenario, you will be initiating productiion for your regular items.
