    The basic of the purchase to pay flow is explained below.

    Determination of Requirements

    In this step, there is a requirement of material or service, which must be procured externally, from the user. The requirement must be recorded as Purchase Requisition (PR) document in SAP MM.

    Purchase Requisition (PR) isan internal purchasing document in SAP ERP that is used to give notification to responsible department about the requirement of material/service and to keep track of such requirement.

    Determination of the Source of supply

    After the PR has been created in the previous step, the responsible department must process it. The buyer of the procurement department must determine the possible sources of supply of the material/service specified in the PR.

    Vendor Selection

    If in the previous step, there are some outline agreements or info record documents that can be used as references to create a PO, the buyer can select or choose which vendor that will be appointed to provide the material/service at this time.

    PO Processing

    In the previous step, the buyer has selected the vendor which will provide the material/service needed in PR. In this step, the buyer creates a Purchase Order (PO) based on the PR and the reference document (that can be an outline agreement, an info record, or a quotation).

    PO Monitoring

    After the PO has been sent to the vendor, the buyer has the responsibility to monitor whether the vendor delivers the material/service at the right time on the right place.

    Goods Receipt

    When the vendor delivers the material or perform the service, the responsible person of the company must perform the goods receipt (GR) or service acceptance (SA) transaction. The GR/SA will update the PO history.

    Invoice Verification

    After the vendor delivered the material/service, it will send the invoice to the person responsible in the company. Invoice is a formal document issued by a vendor to the company to request the payment for the material or service that the vendor has already provide to the company according to the terms of payment agreed in the PO.

    Payment Processing

    After the Invoice Receipt (IR) transaction has been posted, the vendoru2019s account payable will increase and the company must process the payment to that vendor as stated in the terms of payment of the PO. The payment transaction will be performed in FI module. After the payment has been posted, the vendoru2019s account payable will be debited and the cash or bank account will be credited.

    SAP MM stands for Materials Management and this is part of SAP Logistics includes:


    Purchase orders

    Goods receipts

    Accounts payable

    Inventory management


    Master raw materials, finished goods etc

    Some of the Main SAP MM Transactions are:

    ME51N u2013 Create Requisition

    ME21N u2013 Create Purchase Order

    MIGO u2013 Goods receipt a PO

    MIRO u2013 Create Invoice

    One of the main areas covered by MM module is Purchasing/Procurement. The purchasing process is initially started when there is a requirement of material/service from a user. If the material/service can not be obtained from companyu2019s internal resource, the responsible person of that company must find the vendor/supplier which can provide it on the required date. The purchasing process is ended when the payment processing to the vendor that supply the material/service has been done.

      I know this but i need to know how does one configure during an implementation that the purchasing process is from PR to say PO and then say MIGO (instead of inbound, PART 1, quality......) and how do we as an implementor make the system follow this process.

      Please reply,
