Hi,

Basic MM Cycle:

Purchase Requisition->Request for Quotation(RFQ)->(Vendor Evaluation)->Purchase Order(PO)->Goods Receipt Note(GRN)->Invoice Verification->Data to FI

Procurement Process consist of:

Purchase Requisition - A purchase requisition is a request or instruction to Purchasing to procure a certain quantity of a material or a service so that it is available at a certain point in time.

Request For Quatation - A request for quotation (RFQ) is an invitation extended to a vendor by a purchasing organization to submit a quotation (bid) for the supply of materials or performance of services.

Purchase Order - Formal request or instruction from a purchasing organization to a vendor or a plant to supply or provide a certain quantity of goods or services at or by a certain point in time.

Outline Agreement with vendors

a. Outline Purchase Agreement - An outline purchase agreement is a longer-term agreement between a purchasing organization and a vendor regarding the supply of materials or the performance of services within a certain period according to predefined terms and conditions. (Outside SAP, such agreements may be referred to by a number of terms, including "blanket", "master", "framework" or "umbrella" agreements)

b. Contract - In the MM Purchasing component, a contract is a type of outline purchase agreement against which release orders (releases) can be issued for agreed materials or services as and when required during a certain overall time-frame. (In the literature and in practice, similar concepts may also be referred to by a number of other terms, such as "systems contract", "blanket order agreement", "blanket contract", and "period contract".)

c. Schedulilng Agreement - A form of outline purchase agreement under which materials are procured on predetermined dates within a certain time period.

Goods Receipt - If your company uses the MM Purchasing component, deliveries from vendors are most likely the result of purchase orders initiated by the purchasing department.

The purchase order is not only the document with which the purchasing department orders goods from the vendor; it is also an important planning and tracking tool for the following departments: Purchasing, Material Requirements Planning (MRP), Inventory Management, and Invoice Verification.

Quality Inspection - If an inspection at the time of goods receipt has been defined for the material, the system automatically creates an inspection lot when the goods receipt is posted. Quality Management uses this inspection lot to carry out the inspection.

Confirmation - Working with confirmations has the advantage that Materials Planning does not have to depend solely on the delivery dates and quantities set out in purchase orders or the delivery schedules of scheduling agreements.

Confirmations enable you to plan more exactly, since during the time-span between the order date and the desired delivery date you receive increasingly more reliable information from the vendor regarding the anticipated delivery.

Receipt of Vendor Invoice - Document from an invoicing party containing the payments to be made based on business transactions performed in Purchasing and Inventory Management. An incoming invoice can be an invoice or a credit memo.

Invoice Verification - Logistics Invoice Verification is a part of Materials Management (MM). It is situated at the end of the logistics supply chain that includes Purchasing, Inventory Management, and Invoice Verification. It is in Logistics Invoice Verification that incoming invoices are verified in terms of their content, prices and arithmetic. When the invoice is posted, the invoice data is saved in the system. The system updates the data saved in the invoice documents in Materials Management and Financial Accounting.
