Purchase Requisition collaboration for SNC

Hi Experts,

We are in the process of configuring SNC, to share Purchase Requisition Information with Supplier. We found that there are no standard processes defined in SNC for Purchase Req collaboration. We can use the IDOC PREQCR01 to send PReq to XI, but which XML message to use to send it to SNC. Probably we have to define a new XML message for the same. Can you please help how to define a new XML message type in SNC for Purchase Requisition. Or is there some alternate way by using existing message types.

Also we need to change UI in SNC to display Purchase Requisition and processing the same for PReq confirmation.

Request you to please help out on these issues.

    Hi Shivkumar,

    I did not understand your process from your post. Can you elaborate further with process steps. What you mean by PR collaboration here?

    Are you trying to share PR information with suppliers as forecast? If yes then there is a process in SNC which is called "Forecast collaboration" or "Dynamic Replenishment"

      Hi Shiv,

      In SNC it is possible to share the Purchase Requisition in the "Demand Monitor"

      The above already mentioned report (RSMIPROACT) can be configured to send the

      relevant PReq's to SNC, these will then be shown in the Demand Monitor (ICH 5)

      or the order forecast monitor (SNC 5.1 and later).

      It will show up as "Customer planned demands".

      Purchase orders (and schedule agreement releases if applicable) themselves will

      show up as "Customer firm demands".

      Also the confirmations on PO's are shown, "Supplier firm receipts".

      As 'confirmation on the planned requirements, suppliers can enter "Supplier planned receipts"

      As far as I know there is no return message (like confirmation on PO) to R/3 - ERP.

      But at least you can then collaborate in the WEB on this information.

      Have a look at Demand Monitor (5.0)

      Or at Order forecast monitor (>5.1)

      Kind regards

      Jan Tjalling

    Hi Shiv

    If you are using a SAP customer backend system, you could send ur PR using RSMIPROACT report, which will generate a PAN XML message, if i am not wrong the XI content would already be available to map into SNC.





    Hope this is helpful

    Hi Shiv,

    In SNC Release Process functionality is available you can use this functionality by creating Schedule agreement of the type LPA and maintain source list with this schedule agreement, in MRP field select 2 'Record relevant to MRP. Sched. lines generated automatically'.

    One you run MRP then it automatically converts PR into schedule lines.

    First Ciffed Material, Supplier and then schedule agreement.

    Use TCOde:ME84 to send schedule lines of the schedule agreement by using this supplier can give confirmation.

    Please let me know any clarification.

      Hello all

      We are using DR process in SNC and thus want to use RSMIPROACT report to send Preq from ECC to SNC.

      I have set up Source list, PIR etc.and created Preq in ECC still Preq info is not seen on DR monitor. Although Idoc PROACT created carries Preq Qty and date and also PAN XML carries information.

      I also activated Time series type SMI02 in SNC system

      Please help if I am missing any thing here?
