Material Status : Restricted Procurement.

Dear Experts ,

I need to maintain the Plant status for procurement in such a way that :

1. No POs should be created against external vendor .

2. Stock Transfer Orders to be created . That PO with vendor as site .

In define material status , plant specific settings , Purchasing if i use B , the system stops creation of all POs .

Please tell me how can i control the creation of POs as stated above ?

Regards

Anis

    Hi,

    You may try following -

    1) In material master activate 'Source List'. Maintain required procurement type as F / Special procurement key as Stock Transfer.

    2) Maintain the source list for the receiving plant with supplying plant as source.

    3) In this case you will be able to create POs with stock transfer only.

    Hi,

    You may try via material type as it has the control on internal/external purchasing.

    Hi,

    Even you can control this through Authorisation, control this throgh PO Document type and asiign only STO PO to that Plant Users , so that then can have a procure only through STO.

    • procurement type setting is customized as proposal or fixed value at material type level, but it is copied from there into the material master, and in material master it is at plant level MARC-BESKZ

      if you want to be flexible then you should not customize this as a fix value there.

    just set the procurement type in MRP2 view to inhouse procurement and enter a special procurement type to procure the material at a certain plant.
