SAP AFS Combining PReqs in Purchase order

We are in SAP AFS 5.0, there is a requirement to combine the Materials in purchase order . We have a 3rd party directship scenario where the sales order will generate the preq and purchase order will be created. We want to consolidate the materials in the PO level

Here is the scenario

Sales order


Line 10 - Material1 - 10 Qty

Line 10 - Material1 - 10 Qty

Purchase req

Line 10 - Material1 - 10 Qty

Line 10 - Material1 - 10 Qty

Purchase order

Line 10 - Material1 - 20 qty

Is there any possibility we can achive this in SAP AFS Purchasing.

    I believe the functions are same in AFS as in ECC, so shouldn't be much different.

    Create the PO with reference to PR1 by adopting from Document Overview > Selection Criteria > My Purchase Requisitions (or Purchase Requisitions, if its not created by you) and then go to delivery schedule tab, once details are adopted into the PO, drag and drop PR2 in the Shopping Cart available under that tab.This will consolidate both PO's into a single line item by creating them manually.

    Whn doing through ME59N, use the selection criteria under New Purchase Order tab and combine say like Per Plant will let you combine PR's into a single PO.

      AFS is very different from standard. For sure, ME21N and ME59N can be used to combine PR, however the function of generating schedule lines in ME59N won't work.

      If you have several PR (standard, TPO or PTO), for a same material, you'll get one item for each PR. which might not be correct for the vendor, since he needs to get an overall quantity for each sku.

      Same will happen if you use category, in that case you might get different schedule line for each category although the vendor needs an aggregated value.

      Usually, I always get the PO aggregated by sku, plant and date in the PO form or in the oubound IDOC/EDI going to the vendor. Of course this generates others issue if your vendor send back confirmation or inbound delivery.
