With regard to delivery workstations that are reserved for delivery, you can specify the materials or components to be made available to the subcontractor for each planned delivery of the ordered item. Reference to the concept of „unlocking“: in the purchase in MM, the term A is used as a generic term, which covers different types of supporting documents issued against framework agreements (these may be unlocking contracts issued against contracts or, as is the case here, delivery releases, i.e. types of continuous delivery plans issued against delivery plans) , and B) in conjunction with an internal process of authorizing or authorizing expenses for purchases. In both cases, the „clearance“ can be considered equivalent to the „green light“ to take a particular action (for example. B to the seller to provide a certain amount of material, or to purchase to create or issue an order for items requested by a user section). With VSAs, you can set one up for the year and simply call them again and again by creating schedules. See the menu in ME33L: Delivery Plan – Tracking Features – Delivery Plan. Each time you create new requirements manually, the planning plan must be drawn up (change the CF calendar). When the provision is executed, calendar exemptions are created automatically. You can use commands to meet your needs through external sources (i.e., a customer provides hardware or performs a service).
You can also use a command to obtain a necessary material in one of your installations from an internal source, i.e. from another plant. These operations are long-term relocation operations. Activities that follow orders (for example. B the receipt of goods and invoices) are recorded so that you can follow the purchase process. Classifications in the system are internal. This means you can change them in any way. The planning lines stored in the system are only transmitted to the creditor when you explicitly create a delivery authorization (which can take one of two forms: a delivery plan or a JIT delivery plan). All of the above requirements are transmitted immediately when you place an order. One of the main reasons I don`t like them is that they don`t handle delivery tolerances properly. If you have planned a delivery of 10 per week and you receive 15 in the first delivery, there is no warning and the system will assume that only 5 of a future delivery will be received early. A traditional order is usually used to purchase from a supplier if no other form of sales contract is available.
When a sales contract is entered into, orders can be placed in different ways. A sales contract requires each party to sign the contract, while an opposable order requires only a buyer`s signature and a form of acceptance by the supplier. When accepting an order, a sales contract and an order are enforceable contracts and there is no longer any difference between the two. The procedures and menu tracks described in the SAP library refer to the traditional command (ME21, ME22, ME23) and not to the Enjoy command (ME21N, ME22N, ME23N). The main difference between the contract and SA is the volume of documents created would be higher in the contract, because whenever you need to make an order ref the contract and its tedious time, while its can be integrated into the layout, so that it has automatically drawn up delivery plans during the layout race. , if a requirement to the matl.
