Framework Orders for Goods

327 Views

Hi !

Framework orders continue to confuse me.

Question1:

I think I understand how Framework Order work with Item Categories B and D.

However, I cannot think of a scenario when a FO can be used for materials (item category = space, with or without account assignment i.e. inventorized or expensed).

If someone can give some examples, that would be great.

Question2:

Item Categories B and D can be used with a regular NB PO. So, it appears that the only thing a FO provides, that a regular NB PO does not provide, is a validity date range. Everything else that a FO can do, a NB can do too. Am I missing something?

Question3:

Is there something different in SAP called the 'Blanket Order', or is a 'Blanket Order' simply another word for a Framework Order?

Thanks for all your help!

Regards,

Anisha.
