The purpose of this page is to provide information about the creation and deletion of a purchase requisition.


A purchase requisition can be created directly or indirectly.

Direct: the PR is created manually and whoever creates it determines which material or service is ordered and the quantity and date.

Indirect: that PR from another SAP component is created automatically, e.g.:

  • in MRP
  • with maintenance orders
  • with production orders
  • with networks
