    Hi,

    The steps are:

    1.Select Quota arrangement in material master,

    2.ME11

    3.ME01

    4.MEQ1

    5.ME51N

    6.ME57

    Note:

    How Maintain the Quota :

    A quota arrangement file consists of quota arrangement records identifying the source (such as a vendor or an internal plant), the validity period, and the quota allocated to each source.

    We can maintain the quota file. Following are the steps for maintaining this file.

    A.T. Code: MEQ1

    The initial screen for maintaining quota appears.

    B.Enter the material number and the plant for the material that you want to use to maintain the quota file and choose. The header screen for maintaining quotas appears.

    C.Enter the Valid to date for the quota arrangement item.

    We can only define continuous validity periods for one material. In the first interval, the system sets the current date in the Valid from field. The Valid from dates of the other intervals are set continuously so that the day after the end date of the last quota item is set as the start date for the next item.

    D.If we want to work with splitting quota arrangements, we will enter a minimum quantity here.

    E.Double-click on the item to process.

    The item screen now appears.

    Here we will define the source of supply and other control parameters per item.

    Allocating the source of supply to the quota item determines the procurement type that the procurement proposal receives. Therefore, we can specify via the quota arrangement that, for example, 60% of a material is produced in-house and the other 40% is procured externally.

    F. Save entries.

    Dear,

    QUOTA ARRANGEMENTS

    If a quota arrangement exists for a material, it has the highest priority during source determination. Like source list, the quota arrangement facilitates the administration of sources of supply at plant level.

    If you procure a material from different suppliers, you can assign a quota to each individual supplier. A quota arrangement applies to a certain period and specifies how the receipts should be distributed among each source of supply.

    If a quota arrangement exists, this does not mean that the quantity of a single manually created purchase requisition is automatically apportioned among different sources. In such case, the entire quantity of the requisition is assigned to one source u2013 the source that is next in line receive the relevant order.

    Before you can maintain a quota arrangement item with the procurement type external procurement, a source of supply (info record and / or outline agreement) must exists.

    Create quota arrangement:

    LOGISTICS u2013MATERIAL MANAGEMENT u2013 PURCHASING u2013 MASTER DATA u2013 QUOTA ARRANGEMNET u2013 MAINTAIN.

    Specify number ranges for quota arrangement:

    SAP IMG u2013 MATERIAL MANAGEMENT u2013 PURCHASING u2013 QUOTA ARRANGEMENT u2013 DEFINE NUMBER RANGES.

    You must specify the business application for which quotation arrangement will be used, for example: in material planning or in purchase requisitions. You make this specification in QUOTA ARRANGEMENT USAGE filed, which is to be found in the plant-specific purchasing/materials planning data of the material master record.

    Set quota arrangement usage indicator:

    SAP IMG u2013 MATERIALS MANAGEMENT u2013 PURCHASING u2013 QUOTA ARRANGEMENT u2013 DEFINE QUOTA ARRANGEMENT USAGE.

    System assign quota rating to each source by calculation as u2013 Quota rating = (quota allocated quantity + quota base quantity / quota).

    ADDITIONAL ASPECTS OF SUPPLY SOURCE DETERMINATION

    Quota arrangements also can be source of supply.

    Quota arrangements for material requirements arising over a certain period divided up among different sources on basis of quota. Quota arrangements determine which source of supply is automatically assigned to a purchase requisition.

    ******************

    SOURCE DETERMINATION

    The purpose of the source determination process is to automatically assign a source of supply to a purchase requisition, if source determination indicator set in the requisition header, the system searches for possible sources of supply for all the items of the requisition. Quota arrangements also can be source of supply.

    In source list specify a preferred source as fixed for a certain period, the system suggest just only this source, even if other potential sources exists.

    Quota arrangements for material requirements arising over a certain period divided up among different sources on basis of quota. Quota arrangements determine which source of supply is automatically assigned to a purchase requisition.

    Source list record consists of the following:

    1.Validity period u2013 Period of validity

    2.Key source data u2013 Number of vendor and responsible purchasing organization or number and item of outline agreement.

    3.Fixed source u2013 Within a validity period not more than one source should be flagged as fixed.

    4.Procurement plant u2013 if the materials can be procured from a plant or another point within your firm, enter the plant number in PPl field and leave the field for the vendor number empty.

    5.Blocked source u2013 To block a source. If you set Blocked indicator and enter only one validity period, the material is excluded from external procurement; that is, it cannot be ordered during this period.

    6.Material requirements planning - You use MRP indicator to determine whether an automatic source determination process is carried out during the requirements planning run. The appropriate source is then automatically assigned to a purchase requisition, or scheduling agreement delivery schedule lines can be generated directly via planning run.

    If an attempt is made to order a material subject to a source list requirement from a source that is not included in the source list, the standard system issues an error message with the text: Source not included in list despite source list requirement. You can change this to warning message.

    If source list requirement defined for a plant, all materials in the plant level must be maintained with source list before procurement.

    Analyze source list:

    LOGISTICS u2013 MATERIAL MANAGEMNET u2013 PURCHASING u2013 MASTER DATA u2013 SOURCE LIST u2013 FOLLOW ON FUNCTIONS u2013 ANALYSE.

    Define source list requirement at plant level:

    SAP IMG u2013 MM u2013 PURCHSING u2013 SOURCE LIST u2013 DEFINE SOURCE LIST AT PLANT LEVEL.

    Source lists can be created:

    -Manually.

    -Create from within an outline agreement u2013 on outline agreement overview screen, select an item for which you wish to enter source list record and choose ITEM u2013 MAINTAIN SOURCE LIST.

    -Creation from with an info record u2013 you can enter vendor in the source list when creating or changing a purchasing info record. Choose EXTRAS u2013 SOURCE LIST. If the info record valid for entire purchase organization, you can create the source list for all plants of the organization in question. Choose the plant via GOTO u2013 PLANT.

    -Automatic u2013 can generate by system automatically.

    Create source list manually:

    LOGISTICS u2013 MATERIAL MANAGEMENT u2013 PURCHASING u2013 MASTER DATA u2013 SOURCE LIST u2013 MAINTAIN/DISPLAY.

    Generate source list automatically:

    LOGISTICS u2013 MATERIAL MANAGEMENT u2013 PURCHASING u2013 MASTER DATA u2013 SOURCE LIST u2013 FOLOW ON FUNCTIONS u2013 GENERATE.
