We have a requirement when ever we select an inventory item from the catalogue , is it possible to automate the tick order as direct material in the SC creation page , now we are doing manually . is it possible to automate this process.
Thanks for your response. our specific criteria would be for all the inventory items from catalog which has product id's. This is how we differentiate between inventory and non inventory items. so is it possible make a condition like this from the catalog side . if yes then how should we do it .
you can create an implementation of the BADI: BBP_CATALOG_TRANSFER.
There you need to create your own logic to mark the item subtype as DP, based on a criteria, which is for you depends whether the item is stock item or not.
This criteria should be sent from the catalog then based on this item data you can implement the BADI.
You can also check our BADI repository: https://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/display/SRM/SRM+BADI+Repository
I hope this clarification helps.
