Creating single PO from multiple SC

Former Member

Hey guys,

Please tell me, is there an option in SRM 5.0 (Extended Classic) to have single PO created from more than one shopping basket? In R/3 I can create one PO with reference to more than one PR, I don't know if in SRM there is the same possibility. The problem is that PO is created automatically when SC is approved, so there is, as I think, no way to grap information form other SC when single PO is being created. Please give me a sign if you have any ideas how it can be achieved...

Hi

<b>Please go through this for logic details -></b>

<b>Note 768164 - Multiple SCs via SoCo are processed incorrectly</b>

Note 1057530 - BBPSC02: Incorrect PO split when SC contains direct material

You order a shopping cart with couple of items with same data (such as vendor etc). One of the item is a direct material. When you order the cart, the PO split criteria is creating multiple POs instead of a single PO.

Do let me know.

Thanks for answer. I tried to implement mentioned SAP note (snote), but I was given the message that the correct instructions are not OK.

I'm trying to do it like this:

I specified for given product category in Define Sourcing for Product Category the option Automatic Grouping; Sourcing is never carred out.

But when I create and approve 3 shopping cards for that given product category and only one, the same vendor, PO is automatically created in relation 1:1 (one PO for one SC, so I have three POs), and I don't now why.

My expectation is that when I approve this shopping cards, the system should change the status of it to "Transfered for grouping". After the scheduled raport BBP_SC_TRANSFER_GROUPED run, there should be only one PO created for specified vendor in shoping cards. Am I right? If yes, what can be wrong?

Hi Rafa,

You're right, but you have to make a little change in configuration:

in SPRO->Supplier Relationship Management->SRM Server-> Sourcing-> Define Sourcing for Product Categories enter the

Product Category

you want to group, the

System

and select 5 Aut.Grouping, Sourcing for Items Without Assigned Source.

After that schedule the report BBP_SC_TRANSFER_GROUPED to create one PO

I hope this helps you

I did what you suggest, but when I ran raport BBP_SC_TRANSFER_GROUPED (as a raport in gui srm, not via web - I don't want to access sourcing cocpit in order to do that) and indicated numbers of 2 SC created with the same vendor for product category assigned in sourcing with option 5 - Automatic requirement grouping; sourcing for items without assigned source of supply, I got the message:

"No shopping cart found using specified search criteria".

When I do not indicate any data in criteria, the raport generates an empty listy (it looks like it does not found anything)

In srm, those 2 SC are in status "In Purchaser's Worklist".

What can be wrong?

PS. Other thing is what happen if I indicate the vendor on PR and transfer it as a external requirement to SRM. Will it be properly grouped when the option 5 - Automatic requirement grouping; sourcing for items without assigned source of supply is set up?

Hi,

I made a test right now, just setting the <i>Sourcing</i> with the combination of <i>Category ID</i> and <i>System</i> to <u>5. Automatic requirement grouping</u> and create a new Shopping Cart, the status is just <b>"Approved"</b> not <b>"In Purchaser's Worklist",</b> and the report show it.

Check the configuration and create a new SC.

If the SC comes from an external requirement also can be grouped.
