A framework agreement does not contain data on certain delivery dates or quantities to be delivered. This data is transmitted to the creditor in two ways, depending on the nature of the framework agreement. A creditor is informed of quantities and delivery times, either in a specific form of order called the contract unlockability order, or in a delivery schedule. The framework agreement is a long-term sales contract between Kreditor and Debitor. The structure agreement is of two types: indicate the material number with the target amount, the net price, the currency and the group of materials. Click Save. a new planning contract is established. Now that we have discovered where the framework agreements are kept as data — in tables where you actually suspect standard commands — and how to identify them — by document category and document type — let`s look at some aspects of the process. Logistics > materialwirtschaft > purchases > framework agreement > contract > appointment planning in turn more strongly in quantities and in addition on concrete quantities of delivery on certain delivery dates (we speak of schedules). Quite simply, these are more restrictive quantitative contracts – but in the analysis of the data in SAP® they appear separately with their own category of supporting documents in relation to volume or value contracts. But later. 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. In many areas, SAP follows® a category concept of proofs and occupancy. The document category is a rough classification, the type of document is the finer differentiation of the document category. When analyzing a market scenario, you may be interested in the following four categories of documents: A purchase framework contract consists of the following: Contracts are often superior. This may be the case with SAP® because the buying organization is essential (and the work that may be related to the purchase organization). The purchase organization is shown in the EKKO table for each agreement (field: EKKO_EKORG). However, in high-demand structures, large contracts (for example. B the purchase of laptops throughout the company) are negotiated centrally and can then be used in a decentralized manner. In this case, it is possible to cooperate with near-superior purchasing organizations, which are attached to decentralized purchasing organizations as a reference purchasing organization.
They can then use and consult framework agreements established under the reference purchasing agency.
