It really depends on the company and their business process. Generally though:

Purchase Requisition (user reqests stuff, either for manuf/stock, or supplies). -> then the PReq would go through an approval process (Release Strategy). Once approved, one can either create a Request for Quote (RFQ) to multiple vendors to obtain the best prices - and/or create the Purchase Order (either directly from the PReq or from the RFQ).

Once the PO is created -> then a Goods Receipt is necessary (to indicate you received the goods ordered). Then Invoice Verification (again - if this is set up) - which basically prevents overpayment to a vendor (won't allow you to pay for goods not received through Goods Receipt). Then ultimately the payment to the Vendor.

So - Transaction flow for create (common):

PReq -> RFQ -> PO -> G/R -> Invoice -> payment (?)

ME51N -> ME41 -> ME21N -> MIGO -> MIRO -> payment (?)

Tables for Purchase Requisition:

EBAN -

EBKN - Account Assignment

Tables for Purchase Orders:

EKKO - Header

EKPO - Item

EINA - Purchasing Info Record (oops forgot to mention that above - PInfoRec has the vendor/material/price for future sourcing)

Tables for Request for Quote:

same as PO above

Tables for Goods Receipt:

MKPF - Material Document Header

MSEG - Material Document Item

EKBE - History of PO

Tables for Invoice Verification:

BSIS (good substitute for BSEG, which is a monster)

I hope it helps.

Hi,

Material Document is stored in MSEg table.

MM Process Flow

The typical procurement cycle for a service or material consists of the following phases:

1.DeterminationofRequirements

Materials requirements are identified either in the user departments or via materials planning and control. (This can cover both MRP proper and the demand-based approach to inventory control. The regular checking of stock levels of materials defined by master records, use of the order-point method, and forecasting on the basis of past usage are important aspects of the latter.) You can enter purchase requisitions yourself, or they can be generated automatically by the materials planning and control system.

2.SourceDetermination

The Purchasing component helps you identify potential sources of supply based on past orders and existing longer-term purchase agreements. This speeds the process of creating requests for quotation (RFQs), which can be sent to vendors electronically via SAP EDI, if desired.

3.VendorSelectionandComparisonofQuotations

The system is capable of simulating pricing scenarios, allowing you to compare a number of different quotations. Rejection letters can be sent automatically.

4.PurchaseOrderProcessing

The Purchasing system adopts information from the requisition and the quotation to help you create a purchase order. As with purchase requisitions, you can generate Pos yourself or have the system generate them automatically. Vendor scheduling agreements and contracts (in the SAP System, types of longer-term purchase agreement) are also supported.

5.PurchaseOrderFollow-Up

The system checks the reminder periods you have specified and - if necessary - automatically prints reminders or expediters at the predefined intervals. It also provides you with an up-to-date status of all purchase requisitions, quotations, and purchase orders.

6.GoodsReceivingandInventoryManagement

Goods Receiving personnel can confirm the receipt of goods simply by entering the Po number. By specifying permissible tolerances, buyers can limit over- and under deliveries of ordered goods.

7.InvoiceVerification

The system supports the checking and matching of invoices. The accounts payable clerk is notified of quantity and price variances because the system has access to PO and goods receipt data. This speeds the process of auditing and clearing invoices for payment.
