In the consignment process, do we have to assign the standard purchase organisation to plant in the following path
>Enterprise Structure>Assignment >Materials Management>Assign standard purchasing organization to plant
our enterprise structure is like this.
company code: 1000
plants: 9000, 9001, 9002
enterprise structure assignments are:
porg 2000 has been assigned to plants 9000, 9001 and 9002.
porg 2000 is not assigned to company code ( as per client requirement, since i future new company will come up and only one porg 2000 will procure for both companies).
do we need to assign porg 2000 in above spro settings.
I have reading the help of this spro node, it was mentioned as mentioned below:
If several purchasing organizations procure for a certain plant, you can define one of them as the standard purchasing organization for the transactions "pipeline procurement", "consignment" and "stock transfers".
In source determination for stock transfers and consignment, the system automatically utilizes this standard purchasing organization. In the case of goods issues of pipeline materials, the purchasing info records of the standard purchasing organization are read.
Define your standard purchasing organization.
please clear the doubt, is this setting only applicable in case of multiple porg or without this settings my consignment process will work fine?--
is this setting also relevant in case of my enterprise structure or not?
This setting is required when the consign vendor is extended to several purchase organizations where-in you may have different prices in each instance. At the time of transfer posting (consignment to own) the system has to know which price it has to pick. The system will pick the price from the purchasing organization which is defined in this configuration.
Hope this helps.
