Automatic PO creation when neither from Contract or Inventory items.

Hi All,

I have unique situation where PO were automatically created from Shopping cart upon approval when they did not have a Contract or for inventory items. The only difference noticed was it has preferred vendor assigned during SC. My thoughts is the SC documents should end up in Sourcing when there is no contracts found or not procured for invoentory.

We are in SRM 5.0 Extended Classic and SP 15.

I am not sure what might trigger these Shopping carts to be PO automatically upon approval. Please advise

Thanks

Hi

To create a PO automatically , you need to assign a fixed vendor in the shopping cart.

let me know what is existing business there , what exactly you want help on SAP SRM standard.

Hi,

Pl check your SPRO setting-'Define sourcing for product categories'. If you have maintained as' Sourcing never carried out' then system would create PO in held status even if there is no contract or fixed vendor.

Hi Muthuraman,

I understand inorder for SC to become PO, it needs to have a fixed Vendor. but my issue is the SC does not have a fixed vendor(no contract) but a preferred vendor was entered. Though preferred vendor is entered and Vendor is not fixed, PO was created after SC approval which should not be the case. My SPRO settings has 'Sourcing carried out for items without assgined source of supply'

Please advise.

Hi Sanjeev,

My SPRO settings has 'Sourcing carried out for items without assgined source of supply' which I believe should end up in sourcing if SC has no fixed vendor or procured for inventory.
