Assign 1 Pur.Org to 2 company codes in PPOMA_BBP

Hi All,

Our SRM Org.Structure is in this way: Each company code is having its own purchasing org and purchasing groups. We have a business need to setup new Company Code which will be reusing

already existing purchasing org and purchasing group(which belongs to another existing

company code).

In PPOMA_BBP , I do not see a place where I can accomadete our above need.

Experts can you shed some light on above need.

Thanks in advance for your kind support during the right time.

      As I understood in the backend system you have defined 2 purchasing organization for two company codes, and purchasing groups are defined for each purchasing organization. Now you have one additional company code and one of the existing Purchasing organization is assigned to it.

      So first you have to create the organizational model in SRM system or replicated it from HR system, in case you are using HR system in your company.

      After that you should select node from the organizational units which will represent company codes, purchasing organizations and purchasing groups. In transaction ppoma_bbp you have to select org unit, and in "function" tab to specify whether this is a company or purchasing organization or purchasing group. For the purchasing groups in tab "responsibility" you should assign for which product categories this group will be used or for which organizational units and in tab function you should specify to which purchasing organization they are linked. If in the back end system purchasing groups are one and the same for all purchasing organizations, then in SRM you should use a BADI in order to map groups to both purchasing organization.

      Do not forget to assign company code as attribute (attribute ID - BUK) to different users in the organizational model; this attribute will point out to the correct purchasing organization.

      Hope this answer is helpful for you, in case of questions let me know.

    I guess you have Organizational Units for each company code and under each company code, you have a Purchasing Organization ?

    With seach a structure, it is not possible to answer to your request.

    You will have to change your structure by having Purch. Org. above company codes (which depend on Purch. Org.)

    In SR Classic Scenario Pour Org is determined by the Purchase Group you use in Shopping Cart.

    Each purchasing organization and purchasing group in a company is defined as a procurement organizational unit. Each purchasing organization or group must be a node (organizational unit).

    So in Shopping cart use Purchase Group assigned to the Purchase Org you desire to use. Make sure that Pour group is showing under the Buyer list (drop down).

    If this does not work then use some custom development . Since we don no your exact functional requirement its difficult to give exact solution.
