Enablement of direct material PO creation from RFx in classic scenario?

Dear Experts,

We are in classic scenario in the environment of SRM 7.01/ECC 6 EHP5. We have a requirement of triggering direct material PO from a RFx document during the awarding of a quote. On approval of the quote, the quote may be converted to a purchaser order in the backend system. It is currently taking the account assignment based on the SRM ORG Assignment and GL account defined in the settings. So, the system is taking it as an indirect material PO.

How to enable the direct material PO from a RFx triggered in SRM?

Secondly, How to control the plant assignment to the Purchase Order? An Org unit may be responsible for multiple plants (defined in the extended attributes), however, the material is treated as a direct material only one plant? How to control the plant assignment during the PO creation since an RFx document does not pass the plant?

Thanks and regards,

Ranjan

    Hi Ranjan,

    If you initiate the RFx from the Shopping cart it will take the account assignment associated to a SC. Wouldnt that work for you?

    In the shopping cart if you can make it to indirect (free text procurement) and set the sourcing indicator such that it comes to the sourcing cockpit and then create a Rfx and get quotes on it and then create a PO out of the Response and I believe you will see the account assignment as that of the shopping cart.

    We have done something similar to this where in we have converted the PO that gets created into a framework PO( limit type) through code.

    Regards,

    Further to the scn forum http://scn.sap.com/thread/3184410 one workaround can be to create a z program in ECC to change the PO account assignment category "U" or "K" (PO created from SRM) to blank selectively (provided material is a direct material in the plant).

    System takes the first plant available for the user organization structure.

    There can be provision in the above program to change the plant. But there will be some manual intervention.
