    Hi

    Source list means list of sources (vendors)available for a particular material to procure.

    The purpose of source list is for a material how many source are there to supply.

    Steps:

    1. while creating MM01 (Material Master) in the purchasing View in other data TICK the SOURCE LIST which makes it mandatory.

    While creating Scheduling agreement you have to maintain source list in ME01

    The following data are entered.

    It contains material, plant,pur org, vendors with validity period from & to so that whether you can procure from the vendor or not.

    Following T/Code activities in Material Management module.

    Maintain source list - ME01

    Display source list - ME03

    Display changes to source list - ME04

    Analyze source list - ME06

    Reorganize source list - ME07

    Generate source list - ME05

    Display source list for material- ME0M

    you make the system settings that are necessary for purchasing operations carried out using source lists.

    Source list requirement for materials, It may be necessary to include possible vendors of a material in the source list before the material can be ordered.

    The Source list requirement field in the purchasing data of the material master record indicates whether a source list requirement exists for a material.

    You can define the Source list requirement at plant level in IMG. Logistics -->Materials management --> Purchasing --> Source list.

    Here you can see the plants for which a source list requirement exists.

      Hi All,

      Can the Source List contain more than one vendor for a particular material ?

      By reading the thread it looks to be that way but probably not have more than 1 fixed source of supply - is this correct ?

      If we are allowed to have more than one vendor per material how would the system allocate the purchase when doing auto PO ?

      Thanks

      Sean

    Hi,

    Source List (ME01) - The source list facilitates the det. of the source that is applicable (effective) at a certain point in time.

    [We have to mention Valid from u2013 to date, Vendor, Pur. org., Agreement, Fixed source of supply or Blocked source of supply, Source list usage in materials planning and control]

    Source Determination - The process of finding sources of supply for a material or group of materials.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Senthil.

    Hi,

    Source List is , a list of available sources of supply for a material, indicating the periods during which procurement from such sources is possible.

    Every source of supply is stored in a source list record, together with its validity period.

    The source list record uniquely identifies the source of supply, that is, in the SAP system, a vendor, an internal plant, or an outline agreement item, and facilitates determination of the applicable source for a purchase requisition at a certain time.

    For e.g. if you have a Scheduling Agreement for RM and if you have maintained Sch Agreement No & Item No in Spource List Agreement Column & Item and you have maintained "2" i.e. Record relevant to MRP. Sched. lines generated automatically in MRP Column (Source List Usage in Materials Planning)

    Then system will automatically create Delivery Schedule at the time of MRP Run.

    Also it can be used as a information of a particular material procured from how many vendors ? Status of Vendor , whether Fix vendor or Block Vendor etc.

    Regards,

    Vikas

      Hi

      Are u using MRP? I mean ur planning is through MRP or Not?

      If not just remove 1 andif yes please maintain 1. after that when u run MRP while generating Purchase requisitions it will consider Source list.

      Also remove PPL(Proc plant) leave it blank

      Regards

    Hi

    1. First you have to activate the source lsit for ur plant in spro / MM / Purchasing / source list / Define Source List Requirement at Plant Level.

    2. Now you can maintain ur source list T code - ME01, Source list is maintainted at plant level, enter ur material and plant an press enter, input the validity dates / vendor / Purch org / Purch plant / MRP (1 If source list is relevant for MRP also)

    Note: If u have more then one vendor enter all the vendors but if you want to buy from one vendor only the tick the check box Fix against that vendor.

    Best regards

    Dear,

    Source list is to identify the particular vendor in the system buy using Tcode: ME01/ME02/ME03.

    The order in which the system identifies the source determination is:

    First: Quota Arrangement. If there is no QA mainteined, then system will try to find info from

    Second: Source List.

    Thsese two types form source determination in the purchasing master. Even if you don't maintain source list at this point of time, then system will look for

    Third: Outline agreement (Contract or Scheduling agreement), even if this data is not avaliable then system will finally look for Purchase Info record. These two types are known as source list for purchasing master.

    Hope it clarifys.

    Regards,

    Prashanth Pai
