    Set Up Procedure Without Classification

    In this step, you can set up release procedures for purchase requisitions.

    For release purposes, you must define strategies, which the SAP System sets up taking the following into consideration:

    account assignment category

    material group

    plant

    purchase requisition value

    Note

    If you define a release strategy dependent on the account assignment

    category, you must maintain all possible combinations of plant and

    material group for each account assignment category.

    Standard settings

    The release procedure without classification is predefined in the standard SAP System.

    Activities

    1. Decide whether you wish to make use of the automatic release option.

    2. If you do not wish to work with automatic release, you must delete all table entries.

    For requisitions, you can use either the release procedure WITHOUT classification (procedure 1) or the one WITH classification (procedure 2). Procedure 2 gives you considerably more flexibility in determining the strategy.

    If you have previously worked with procedure 1, for example, but now wish to switch to procedure 2, you must at least define the release group for procedure 2. As soon as you have saved this, procedure 2 is active. If you wish to work with procedure 1 again, it is enough to delete the release group.

    If you wish to work with procedure 1, define the following:

    Release codes

    Release indicators

    Assignment of release indicators

    Release prerequisites

    Determination of release strategy

    1. Release codes

    Create the release codes.

    2. Release indicators

    Define release indicators and branch to the detail screen. Here you define whether fixed purchase requisitions may be changed by Materials Planning, for example, and whether an RFQ or a purchase order may be created from the requisition.

    You can also determine the field selection here.

    In the area "Changes after the start of the release procedure", you specify whether a requisition may be changed after the release procedure has begun. You specify whether the strategy has to be redetermined after changes, or whether the release procedure has to start all over again from the beginning.

    This parameter bears a relation to the parameter "Value change". For example, previous releases are not cancelled if the value of the requisition item after the change does not exceed plus 10% of its original value.

    Attention:

    Be sure to create a release indicator (e.g. B for "blocked") that serves as the starting point for subsequent indicators. Do not set the indicators for release for the issue of RFQs and PO on the detail screen for this indicator.

    Also create a release indicator characterizing the released status. Set the indicators for release for the issue of RFQs and PO on the detail screen.

    3. Assignment of release indicators

    Assign a release indicator in dependence on the status of the release.

    Example:

    You create a release strategy S1 consisting of two release codes 01 and 02. Release with 01 is a prerequisite for release with 02. If release has been effected with 01, the requisition has been given the "all clear" for the issue of RFQs.

    You have created the release indicators B (blocked), 1 (cleared for issue of RFQs) and 2 (cleared for RFQs and PO).

    Now enter the following as assignment:

    Strategy C1 C2 C3 ...

    S1 B (blocked)

    S1 X 1 (RFQ)

    S1 X X 2 (RFQ/PO)

    4. Release prerequisites

    Define which release codes are involved in a release strategy. Specify whether a code is set for a release status following release, and whether one release status is a prerequisite for another (+).

    Example:

    Strategy Code C1 C2 C3 ...

    S1 01 X

    S1 02 + X

    5. Determination of the release strategy

    Determine the conditions under which each release strategy is assigned. The criteria are account assignment category, material group, plant, and value of the requisition item.
