Issue on sourcing cockpit

Hi All,

My requirement is : when the user create shopping cart for the requirement of materials and services in the SRM System. Once the Shopping cart is approved, system should transfer the approved requirement items to the sourcing cockpit, then the market buyer(Purchasing group) generates a purchase order immediately for items in the shopping cart.and these sourcing will be carried out based on business rules only for the categories which mentioned below:

1.If we have vendor list for a particular category and vendor selected in the shopping cart = is it listed in "vendor list" then the Action should be Shopping cart can be converted to a PO automatically.

2.If we have vendor list for a particular category and vendor selected in the shopping cart is not equal to it listed in "vendor list" then the Action should be Approved Shopping cart has to be routed to sourcing cockpit (Market Buyer).

3.If we don't have vendor list for a particular category and vendor selected in the shopping cart is not equal to it listed in "vendor list" then the Action should be Need to check shopping cart line item total value against u201CThresholdu201D established by Procurement

4.1.If we don't have vendor list for a particular category and vendor selected in the shopping cart is not equal it listed in "vendor list" then the Action should be Shopping cart can be converted to a PO automatically.

The Product categories & Threshold values & currency are maintaied in Ztable.Badi to be used is BBP_SRC_DETERMINE

Could any body please let me know any idea and how to proceed with this this requirement as iam new to SRM devlopment.

If any body knows the fields name(vendor list, Purchasing group) and tables also please suggest..

    Did you made required settings in SPRO

    SRM Server -> Cross Application ->Define Sourcing for Product Categories

    Use

    In this IMG activity, you specify the following for each product category:

    Whether the system should transfer approved requirement items to the purchaser's sourcing application and, if so, which items :

    if a source of supply is missing, the system should automatically create a bid invitation

    That SAP Enterprise Buyer should transfer certain requirements to the sourcing application, and generates a purchaser order (PO) immediately for other items in the same shopping cart

    Whether requirements are grouped together in a PO

    For more information, see the documentation for the report Automatic Grouping of Requirements for POs and Bid Invitations.

    Whether requirements are grouped together in a bid invitation

    See the documentation for the above report.

    In addition to local product categories, you also process product categories for external requirements that are not in the local SAP Enterprise Buyer product master.

    Standard settings

    You can specify the following:

    Sourcing is never carried out

    This is the default setting at delivery.

    SAP Enterprise Buyer does not transfer any items to the purchaser's sourcing application.

    Sourcing is always carried out

    SAP Enterprise Buyer transfers each item to the purchaser's sourcing application.

    Sourcing is carried out for items without a source of supply

    Note:

    SAP Enterprise Buyer evaluates Sourcing Customizing after a shopping cart has been approved, and makes a note in the shopping cart stating whether or not the shopping cart should undergo sourcing. Therefore, any change to Customizing does not affect any shopping carts that have already been approved.

    If you require further control options, for example, the facility to control processing at product level, you can use the following BAdI: Define Execution of Sourcing.

    You also have the following options:

    You can specify the product category generically by entering *. In this case, the source system field also remains blank because no unique assignment is possible.

    You can enter the source system manually only if you have also entered the product category manually.

    Use the input help to select an entry for the Sourcing field, and save your input.

    Example

    Category ID Source System Sourcing

    00051 AX5CLNT600 Always

    00051 AX4CLNT600 Never

    00101 For item without assigned source of supply

    00257 AX5CLNT600 Always

    002* For item without assigned source of supply

    003* Automatic creation of bid invitation

    for items without source of supply

    Thanks

    Need to use BBP_DOC_CHANGE_BADI and BBP_SRC_DETERMINE in tandem

    And also make sure

    Define Objects in Backend System (Purch. Reqs, Reservations,Purch. Orders)

    Purchasing GRp= *, Category ID *, Source Sys= your backend system, Int.Proc=Always external procuremtn Ext.Proc= Purchase order if item data complete

    Define Sourcing for Product Categories

    Category ID= * Source ID= backend system Sourcing=Sourcing Carried Out for items without source of supply

    1.Standard

    2.BBP_SRC_DETERMINE

    Check for vendor list availability.

    There is a vendor list and if table CRMD_PARTNER partner_fct = '00000039' change parameter SOURCING to X

    3. clarify what needs to be done after check( I m assuming below threshold PO, and above threshold Sourcing Cockpit)

    Below Threshold Sourcing Cockpit

    BBP_DOC_CHANGE_BADI

    Check for vendor list availability.

    If There is no vendor list

    Check for Threshold in ZTABLE

    Less than threshold

    Change partner_fct = '00000039' to partner_fct = '00000019' this will make him Fixed vendor so that PO is automatically created

    BBP_SRC_DETERMINE

    Check for vendor list availability.

    There is no vendor list

    Check for Threshold in ZTABLE More than than threshold change parameter SOURCING to X

    4.

    BBP_DOC_CHANGE_BADI

    Check for vendor list availability.

    There is no vendor list

    Change if partner_fct = '00000039' to partner_fct = '00000019' this will make him Fixed vendor so that PO is automatically created
