Purchase Order Processing

Description


You can use this business process to send out purchase orders (POs) to the supplier using the web-based application SAP Supply Network Collaboration (SAP SNC). POs are typically generated as part of the customer’s MRP run or are manually created by the customer. The suppliers can view the POs by status, enter free text notes, and also print or download. The supplier can enter confirmations or order responses indicating which date and quantity that can be committed to.  At time of shipment, the supplier can create ASN messages as well, which together with the confirmations update the customer’s ERP/MRP system.

The main business value is derived from the fact that the customer can communicate requirements accurately and in real-time, replacing older methods, such as phone, fax, or e-mail. Suppliers can find their requirements through a web browser only and are proactively alerted to exception situations, such a new or changed PO, on-screen or per e-mail. Suppliers can respond to the requirements quickly and accurately via confirmations and ASNs.

Structure of the Purchase Order Details Screen

Purchase Order Header (tabs)

General

On the General tab you can find data under the groups Document Data and Status Information.

Terms

The Terms are displayed as they are provided in the XML message sent from the ERP system. The Payment Terms group do not include the "Terms of Payment" data which is the name of the payment term in ERP, but displays other values like Cash (Prompt Payment) Discount Days and Cash Discount Percentage. Note that if the values are all zero in a Payment Term, the XML will not contain any data under the tag "Cash Discount Terms". The other group here is the Delivery Terms which can display the Incoterm and over/underdelivery related data.

Partners

The Partners are grouped by the Supplier, Customer and the Seller as standard.

Contacts

The Contacts tab lists all the relevant contact person for the specific Purchase Order including the Business Partner, addresses and other contact data.

Admin Data

The Administrative tab displays data with users and dates.

Purchase Order Item 

In a table view the screen displays all the Purchase Order Items with function buttons on the top of the table. The visibility of the buttons depends on the system settings. The table view can be modified with the Settings button on the right.
