Date Tolerances in PO Confirmations

Hi All,

My requirement is that I need to ensure the Confirmations sent by Suppliers as part of PO Collaboration need to be within specified tolernace limits for Delivery Date.

Some key points are:

1. I do not want to use Approval Profiles

2. Unlike Delivery tolerance which are available in the PO line item, where can i maintain the Date Tolernaces?

3. Any pointers if we can create custom validation checks for the Date similar to the ones for Qty. (PO_ITMOVERDELIVERY / PO_ITMUNDERDELIVERY). If yes where can I store the Tolernace valuse for a given Supplier/Customer / Product combination?

I know that this can be achieved using Approval Profiles / Consensus Finding, but my client does not want the Buyer to log into the SNC system. At the smae time, we want to prevent the suppliers from sending confirmations with Delivery dates which are outside the desired tolernace range.

Thanks,

Bharath

    Hi Bharath,

    First of all I don't understand why you/client don't want to use Approval Profiles / Consensus Finding?

    Approval Profiles / Consensus Finding feature is meant for this purpose only.

    If you want to customize this then you need to create Z-validation with that you need to implement the BAdi /SCMB/BOL_VALFRMWRK as per you business requirement.

    Also you need to create Z-table which stores the data of supplier,customer,product combination which should be called whenever Z-validation check is called.

    In a long run this is going to give more issues.

    This customization is not recommended as this requirement can be achieved without any Z customization.

    As a functional consultant your job is to convince your client to go for SAP standard functionality and also in your case there no need for customization as your requirement can be achieve using Consensus Finding .

    Anyways you can have two options Z-customization or SAP standard functionality for which you will also get support from SAP but customization you won't get any support from SAP for any issues in future.

      Hi Bharath,

      I think there is no need for Z-customization and you can achieve this standard way only thing you have maintained OWN validation:

      After below setting whenever Supplier try to give confirmation which is out side tolerance then system won't allow him to save the confirmation and if supplier is EDI which sends ROC_IN confirmation XML will fail in SNC (You can see that XML in SXI_MONITOR tcode in SNC).

      SPRO >Supply Network Collaboration >Basic Settings > Validation >Own Settings-->Maintain Settings in Validation Profiles

      And maintain below setting

      Profile:POC3

      Val.Check:PO_ACCEPTED_CONF_PUBLISH

      Status:Active

      Msg.Type:E(Error )

      Save Mode:DO Not Save message

      Continuation mode:Discontinue checks

      Checked

      Checked

      1-Error

      Profile:POC8

      Val.Check:PO_ACCEPTED_CONF_PUBLISH

      Status:Active

      Msg.Type:E(Error )

      Save Mode:DO Not Save message

      Continuation mode:Discontinue checks

      Checked

      Checked

      1-Error

      If you want alert whenever PO confirmation is not within tolerance activate the alert type 7035

      Path:SPRO >Supply Network Collaboration >Exceptions >Alert Type Activation >Activate Alert Types

      Alert type=7035

      History=<Blank>leave this entry blank.

      save this entry.

      If you want receive alert as email then maintain email alert notification:

      See the below link:

      http://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/scn/go/portal/prtroot/docs/library/uuid/8009bba5-7806-2d10-0b80-fa26d8bcb07c?QuickLink=index&overridelayout=true

      In the above link you need to change alert type from 7051 to 7035.
