Set Reservation Relevance/Generation of Purchase Requisition to Never


For maintenance orders generated from Maintenance plans we do not want purchase requisitions to be generated for external operations when we release the maintenance order. We want to control this manually after the order is released.

What we then would like was that for external operations generated from maintenance plans "Reservation Relevance/Generation of Purchase Requisition" should be set to Never. And then we could set to immediately when we are ready to create the purchase requisition.

We know that we can set Never as default for combination plant - order type. But then it will be never also for stock reservations and purchase requisitions for non-stock items on components view.

And that we do not want.

Any proposals?

Best regards

Tom Saga

    Maintain new control key for such kind of operations and assign 'X' in external processing field.

    X means Internally processed operation/external processing possible.

    Define all such operations in tasklist with new control key and then include those tasklist into your maintenance plans.

    It enables you to peform the operation either internally or externally.

    if you set NEVER then it will apply for reservation as well as purchase requisition , you can mark the order to be created without releasing and after that user will apply the state as required
