can we maintain/FIX multiple vendors for a particular material..is it poss ?how?
If you referring to allowing procurement of a material from only specific vendors, the answer is yes. You can do this via the source list. You will need to maintain your vendors for the material/plant combination in the source list (transaction ME01).
You then flag the 'source list' flag on the material master 'purchasing' view. Note this is a plant-specific field.
Now, you will be able to create POs for this material only with the vendors specified in the souce list within the validity period.
If you need this requirement for all materials for a particular plant, then you can set the source list requirement at plant level in config (SPRO->Materials Management->Purchasing->Source List->Define Source list requirement at plant level).
Hope this helps.
u can maintain source list for many vendors and u can fix only on evendor but if u want to maintain more vendors why dont u try QUOTA ARRANGEMENT
if u use quota arrangement u can use 2 or more vendors for a single material and the system will disribute the orders among them only.
