SRM contracts cycle

Hello all, I am working with SRM 5.0 and SRM Server 550.

I want to know what is the behaviour of contracts in SRM in general.

1.- I create a GOA document in SRM, it is distribute to backend system (R/3). In this moment, which is the status of GOA in SRM? 2.- Is necessary to activate workflow process to release GOA automatically and then distribute to backend?

When the contract is on backend system and I change some parameters in the backend, is there some process to update the status or the parameters in GOA document in SRM? Is there some communication between the systems in this moment?

3.- I want to activate a non standard workflow process in backend system (R/3) for contracts distributed. How can I do that when backend contract is released then GOA contract in SRM change the status?

I want to know all standard cycle from GOA creation to final.

Thanks in advance

Rosa Rodríguez

    what is the behaviour of contracts in SRM in general.

    Q1.- I create a GOA document in SRM, it is distribute to backend system (R/3). In this moment, which is the status of GOA in SRM?

    A1 :-RELEASED

    2.- Is necessary to activate workflow process to release GOA automatically and then distribute to backend?

    A2:- Upon business requirement. Yes every business need approval since BUYERS decision are not final

    Q2aWhen the contract is on backend system and I change some parameters in the backend, is there some process to update the status or the parameters in GOA document in SRM? Is there some communication between the systems in this moment?

    A2A :- No . you should not change any value in ME32K . no business allows this. you must speak to basis and pull everyone access to edit Purchasing contract. All edit/ massage / change happen only in GOA . evry changes in GOA versions will be created and distributed to backend sytem every time.

    3.- I want to activate a non standard workflow process in backend system (R/3) for contracts distributed. How can I do that when backend contract is released then GOA contract in SRM change the status?

    you can do mostly busineess needs approval on GOA approval.

    RELEASED -status in SRM for good distributed GOA.
