RDM: Operational Sourcing
RDM | Procurement | Operational Sourcing The operational sourcing takes you from initial demand to the creation of a purchase order. The purchasing department works with the purchasing request, decides on whether the requirement of products can covered from stock or need to be procures externally considering optimization issues. The source determination helps you find the most source for a certain requirement, i.e. it suggests a suitable outline agreement or vendor for ordering purposes.
|Sourcing||From Demand to Purchase Order The following objects represent the basic data upon which the source determination process for requisitions and purchase orders depends: Outline Agreement, Info Record, Plant, Quota Arrangement and Source List. The source of supply of a requested material can be determined automatically, by searching for respective sources of supply in the background. If a unique source of supply can not be determined, the system does not assign a source at all. The source must then be assigned manually by a user in an online process.|
