Registration of Suppliers to New Product Categories

Hi,

As we have seen, during registration of new suppliers, system offers a list of product categories to select. System sends questionnaires related to the selected product categories, to prospective supplier's email ID. The supplier submits answers to these question. The buyer will scrutinize the details, registers him as supplier and also maintains supplier list for the product categories which he has requested.

Now the supplier is interested in some more product categories. So he has to select some more product categories. The system should send him a questionnaires for those product category. The buyer will scrutinize the answers submitted by the supplier and maintains supplier list for those product categories.

How to map this scenario in standard SAP?

    Hi Ganapathi,

    Unfortunately if you want a registered supplier to again send you questionnaire response to new product categories, then you will have to do this offline through email.

    However in the Portal, the Purchaser can assign the new categories to already existing supplier.

    Regards,

      Dear Muthu,

      The very purpose of my interrogations was

      later supplier and buyer communicates

      how?

      We saw options where buyer can create a survey based on product category, and send it to suppliers and expect answers.

      But the reverse case, if suppliers wanted to proactively access the repository of product category and answer questions related to it, is not possible. It seems they can do it only once, during first registration!

      Ok. Let me wait for sometime and close this thread then.

    In the purchasing system , everything is controlled by the buyer(purchaser )

    so it is not feasible for the suppliers to proactively selects the new product categories , this is because buyer is the one who decides which product category he wants and not the supplier.

    only the product categories decided by the purchaser will be shown in the questionaire
