    PR is supposed to be source of requirement- Hence does not make sense to create PR after getting quotations. However, if your client insists on having it, once quotations are maintained, have info. record update and then you can create PR with reference to the info. record.

    This is not just SAP standard- this is the standard procurement cycle hence certainly not recommended.

    RFQ can be created without reference at any time .

    I dont see any problem to keep the old process.

    Hi Preeti ,

    As Jurgen mentioned, it is possible to create RFQ and Quotation prior to PR.

    we use this process. The process is as follows.

    Customer Inquiry(SD) ---- > RFQ ---> Quotation --->Sales Quotation(SD) ----> Sales Order (SD) ---> PR -----> PO

    At few places there is no system integration like Customer Inquiry to RFQ....... but business has the process outside the system.

    With Regards
