    Hi

    Once the shopping cart is ordered, it will trigger the respective work flow for cart approval.

    Based upon the business requirements either one step or n-step work flow will be activated. If it is the one step work flow process, once the shopping cart is ordered it will find the respective approving manager, as soon as the manager approves the shopping cart it will created the follow on documents like PO / PR / Reservation (base implementation process).

    In the case of multilevel approval, once the first level manager approves the SC then it will approach the next level and continues till final level manager approves.

    If no approval process is required for SC then we can activate the auto approval workflow, so that shopping cart will be automatically approved.

    Hope this will give you an idea about sc work flow.

    Regards,

    Krish

    Hi

    in general most of the business objects have work flow. for eg shopping cart has following workflows.

    depends upon your business need you can activate these workflow.

    1)Without workflow

    2) Once step workflow

    3) Two step workflow

    4)N step workflow

    for eg :- you can activate only one workflow (Without workflow) so never approval is required for sc.

    another eg:- you can control your workflow via starting conditions based on value of sc.

    if you can activate more than workflow but you have defined starting conditions based on total sc value.

    if your sc value is less than 100. without workflow triggers, if value goes to1000 his manager has to approve (one step).till value is more than 10000 it should approve by his senoir manager.. like that. so now this cart approve by manager + sr manager ( two step) like that only. thats all.

    swb_procurement - tcode helps you to define starting conditions for your business object

    regards

    Srini,

    Let us say Client has Approval process based on the Amount of the shopping cart.

    1)Without workflow: For less than 500 dollar shopping cart they might not need a workflow and can use this so that shopping cart created PO/PR upon creation( this is standard workflow)

    2) Once step workflow: If the Shopping cart value is between 500 and 10000 they need a manager of Shopping cart creator's approval they can go for One Step( this is standard workflow)

    3)Two step workflow: If the Shopping Cart Value is between 10000 and 25000 they need Manager and Manager's Manger approval they can go for Two Step( this is standard workflow)

    4)N step: If none of the Standard workflow does not cater to their Business/(Multiple levels of workflow needd based on complex criteria and the number of approvers needs to determined dynamically) they would need to go for N Step workflow. They can code the complex criteria into BADI: BBP_WFL_APPROV_BADI
