Agreements are now at the origin of a long-term structured procurement process. But what about individual buying on the concrete basis of an agreement? We are also talking about call-offs. These are specific specific markets, in reference to the framework agreement. How you can determine these searches by analyzing the data, the tables in which they are recorded, and whether the information about goods and invoices is relevant or relevant in this context – this is something for the next post in the series. Step 4 – Indicate delivery date and target quantity. Click Save. The planning lines are now maintained for the delivery plan. The delivery plan is nothing more than a long-term sales contract in which you can set delivery times whenever predefined needs or intervals change. We can categorize the delivery plan by hour or day or week or month. A framework agreement is a longer-term agreement with the seller for the provision of equipment or the provision of services on pre-defined terms. In the purchase of MM, these agreements are subdivided into “contracts” and “delivery plans.” Framework agreements may be subject to an unblocking procedure (authorization or authorization).
As a general rule, the objective of framework agreements is to set a ceiling or a total volume (i.e. a target value). For quantity contracts that are very specific to individual materials and therefore often related to a material number (field: EKPO_MATNR), because the number of parts or the number of parts play an important role here (although there are other possibilities. B for an unknown material or consumables that I will not study here). This is why the target value here is at the level of the respective contract position, since the target quantity (field: EKPO_KTMNG) multiplied by the price of the material in question gives the reference value (field: EKPO_ZWERT) of each item. Now it`s becoming exciting (at least for data analysts): framework agreements such as quantity contracts, value contracts and delivery plans are not stored in their own tables, but also in the EKKO and EKPO tables. So don`t get confused by names or take them too literally. The framework agreement is a long-term sales contract between Kreditor and Debitor. The structure agreement is twofold: the value contract: for this type of agreement, the total value is indicated with respect to the total amount to be paid to the seller for this material. The terms of a framework agreement apply up to a specified period of time and cover a certain pre-defined amount or value. In the SAP system® itself. B you can access the call documentation in the ME33K transaction using the histogram icon and get information about what has already been published.
By clicking on the hat icon (which recalls the head data -?) you get to where the target value of the contract is visible (in this case, of course, the sum of the two elements). I will now take a closer look at the target values for articles and heads in framework agreements. Data model – Commands and framework agreements Let`s start with examples of different types of framework agreements. I will realize that the main points to remember in a framework agreement are: the selection of suppliers is an important process in the procurement cycle.
