Sourcing Cockpit - no SOS

Former Member

Hi Gurus,

Step 1) Create Shopping cart

Step 2) Approve SC

Step 3) No source available

Step 4) Now in sourcing cockpit

At this point assume there are about 1000 requisitions in the sourcing cockpit.

I understand that the person with the necessary access needs to find a source.

But I want to assign these requisitions (i.e. no SOS requisitions) to MANY business users to take action. Are there any criteria (for example by purchasing group etc?) to assign the responsibility to MANY business users?

Pls. advise me.

With regards,

Hello Pranav,

Once source of supply is not there - shopping cart will go to worklist of the purchaser as assigned in the 'Purchasing group' during creation of shopping cart - this process is standard SRM process.

However, you can determine the 'purchasing group' based on your own business logic may be as per product category or any other condition by using BADI -

Hi Pranav,

Yes this is possible and it is the standard process in SRM .

You can assign the product categories to responsible purchasing group in the organisation structure.

When ever supplier source is not available the SC goes to this responsible purchasing group under their work area

then they have to assign the best supplier for the shopping cart

then you can create PO.
