Plan driven procurement in Classic Scenario

Hello Experts,

We are using Classic scenario (SRM7.0/ECC6.0) but No Ehp 4.

My target is to bring external requrement from ECC into SRM Sourcing cockpit. I went through configuration guides for Plan driven procurement and noticed that it is supported only in Extended classic it true? I think the requirement will still come to SRM cockpit but it will create a local PO in SRM...Am I right?

Can I not have the same functionality in Classic scenario by means of any BADI or customisation?

Do give suggestions.

Best Regards,

    Plan driven procurement would be valid only in Extended Classic Scenario, according documentation:

    Perhaps you would be able to handle with both scenarios using badi BBP_EXTLOCALPO_BADI.

      Hi Ricardo,

      Plan driven procurement is also supported in classic mode. In SRM7, service procurement classic scenario is launched where the service with hierarchy requirement has been transferred to SRM sourcing. Once the source of supply is identified, the follow-on document like contract or PO is created back in ECC system.

      For material or non hierarchy service scenario, I guess the restriction mentioned by you still holds true.

      Thanks and regards,

    You can use PDP in Classic scenario. For creating BE POs youneed to implement the three BADIs:

    1. Determination of system for the creation of purchase order --> DETERMINE_LOGSYS_BADI
    2. Determine target object in the Backend ECC system --> DETERMINE_TARGET_OBJECTS
    3. Creation of PO  -->BBP_CREATE_PO_BACK

    We are also using SRM 7, classic scenario. Plan driven from Third Party Sales order.

    In plan driven scenario, you can transfer requirments from ECC6 to sourcing in SRM. In ECC6, You have to schedule or execute manually this program.

    BBP_REQREQ_TRANSFER. This will read from table EPRTRANS the relevant requirments.

    Hope this will work for you
