Important parameters to be followed while using ERS

Hello All,

I wanted to know the importance of ERS and when it is used.

I want to create a scenario starting from material master data, vendor master data, PR, PO etc.

I am confused when the source of supply is determined.

It would be nice if you can explain with an example.

Thanks in advance,

Forum Shah

    ERS is normally used where you have understanding with your supplier on not sending invoice and they will be ok as per your systems records and prices for periodic payments.

    If you vendor is ok than, you can set up ERS for them by enabling ERS indicator in Vendor Master and set the same in inforecord as well if required.

    Hence it will default ERS indicator ticked in PO.

    After that you need to clear settlements periodically which can also be scheduled as batch jobs.

    ERS is the procedure of creating invoices and making the settlement in MRRL by the system periodically with out invoice receipt from vendor. The price is taken from PIR and ERS applicability from Vendor master and PIR. It flows to the PO. As tax code is defined, the price is automatically determined.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The prerequisites for ERS procedure are

    1. In Vendor master, (purchasing view)

    a. GR based IV should be ticked (b) Auto Eval. GR. Set. Del ticked (c)Auto EVal.GR. Set. Ret. ticked

    2. In PIR

    a. GR based IV should be ticked (b) No ERS blank

    3. In PO, make sure (in item details in invoice tab)

    a GR base IV ticked (b) ERS ticked (c) tax code is defined

    4. (ERS) message type should be defined in SPRO/IMG/LIV/Message detr./Maintain message types

    5.(ERS) message type should be maintained in message schema in IMG/MM/LIV/Message deter./Maintain message schema

    6.Create condition record for (ERS) message type in MRM1

    7. Assign Forms and programs for (ERS) message type in SPRO/IMG/ MM/LIV/ message deter./ Assign forms and programs.

    Hi,

    ERS allows settlement of goods receipt without receiving actual invoice from vendors where
    system can generate the corresponding invoices and post them ,so vendor invoice is no longer required.


    Basically based on price maintained in purchase order and quantity captured during goods receipt system determines the invoice amount.

    For setting parameters and details setting, check linkS:
