Parameters to decide if separate sales order is required.

Hi Experts!!

I wanted to understand what parameters needs to be considered while deciding - if separate sales order type is needed or not?

We have below requirement.

1. Down payment is applicable for third party items only.

2. Same plant can sale - stock and service articles.

Will above two parameters should have separate sales order type?

What other parameters needs to be considered in this decision?

Kindly provide the list of parameters and how they impact this decision.

    Not enough to give a suitable suggestion. You should have given more details about your existing set up. However, since the item category group differs from the normal sales, it would be better to have a new one. On the other hand, if you have already Billing Plan configured and this scenario (down payment) is only occasional, then, in that case, you can make use of the existing document type. Needless to mention, your billing type would be different for down payment and you need to have a new billing document type if not the sale order. Coming to your second one (plant) listed, normally, we have separate billing document types for order related billing and delivery related billing. For stock sales, delivery related billing would be used and service, order related billing would be used. Again, you can club both into one billing document if you have the required configuration. Most importantly, discuss with your FI team / client and understand how they want the FI postings to happen. If this varies from the existing one, then, you need to have a new pricing procedure also.
