    Third party scenario is integration bet SD nad MM


    Brief process is like customer places orders, the sales order is converted to purchase requisition/purchase order and purchase order inturn placed to vendor who delivers the goods directly to the customer. instead of delivering to Company


    Following are the steps of third party:


    1) Creation of third party sales order


    2) Generation of automatic purchase reqisition throught the configuration of schedule line CS in SD.(schedule line is determined by the item categoty and the mrp type.

    please dont maintain mrp type in the material master.so that it will determin CS directly.

    in the tcode VOV6,please check whether the document type NB is maintained for CS.

    This will created auto PR).


    3) You can check the PR Number in the schedule line tab of sales order.PR requirement will not be available in the MD04.


    4) Manually create a PO for vendor with item category S.


    5) There will be no GR in this case.


    6) Create an invoice verification document.


    7) Create an invoice from the SD side w.r.t Sales order.
