Third party sales with real inventory movements

We need to define in SAP process for the following scenario: the company receives order from an affiliated company (its customer) and at that point purchases the goods from external vendors. The vendor sends the goods directly to the customer, but the company wants to record real goods receipt and goods issue with accounting entries. Moreover the company serves as internal purchasing department for the group of affiliated companies and they want the employees of the end client to be able to record in SAP their order in order to have approval process in SAP.

What is the best way to configure that so data is entered only once and converts autpomatically from SO to PO or from PO to SO? I was thinking to create first SO that would automatically create PR, which would get converted to PO, but how to do the approval process?

Hi,

For third party sap has provided TAS item category, wherein when you create a order, a PR will be created and then a PO.

This PO will go to the vendor and who in turn send the goods directly to the customer.

The vendor sends us the POD and invoice by which we can do the Goods receipt and invoice receipt in SAP.

Now here with help of a MM resource you can map the scenario by which you can do the GR and also show the necessary accounting entries etc. with help of FI resource.

I am not sure what approval process you are talking about... Plz elaborate so that we can help you out.

Regards,

SB

Thank you for the suggestion.

The approval process involves one employee of the client to create requisiton for the goods and his manager to approve in SAP. There is release strategy for PR, but is there something similar on the SD side - something before the SO is created? Because we want to start the process from the SD side, not with PR.
