MM Process flow
The typical procurement cycle for a service or material consists of the following phases:
1. Determination of Requirements
Materials requirements are identified either in the user departments or via materials planning and control. (This can cover both MRP proper and the demand-based approach to inventory control. The regular checking of stock levels of materials defined by master records, use of the order-point method, and forecasting on the basis of past usage are important aspects of the latter.) You can enter purchase requisitions yourself, or they can be generated automatically by the materials planning and control system.
2. Source Determination
The Purchasing component helps you identify potential sources of supply based on past orders and existing longer-term purchase agreements. This speeds the process of creating requests for quotation (RFQs), which can be sent to vendors electronically via SAP EDI, if desired.
3. Vendor Selection and Comparison of Quotations
The system is capable of simulating pricing scenarios, allowing you to compare a number of different quotations. Rejection letters can be sent automatically.
4. Purchase Order Processing
The Purchasing system adopts information from the requisition and the quotation to help you create a purchase order. As with purchase requisitions, you can generate Pos yourself or have the system generate them automatically. Vendor scheduling agreements and contracts (in the SAP System, types of longer-term purchase agreement) are also supported.
5. Purchase Order Follow-Up
The system checks the reminder periods you have specified and - if necessary - automatically prints reminders or expediters at the predefined intervals. It also provides you with an up-to-date status of all purchase requisitions, quotations, and purchase orders.
6. Goods Receiving and Inventory Management
Goods Receiving personnel can confirm the receipt of goods simply by entering the Po number. By specifying permissible tolerances, buyers can limit over- and underdeliveries of ordered goods.
7. Invoice Verification
The system supports the checking and matching of invoices. The accounts payable clerk is notified of quantity and price variances because the system has access to PO and goods receipt data. This speeds the process of auditing and clearing invoices for payment.
hope this helps!
MRP Requirements (demand)-> Purchase Requisition (PR)-> Requisition for Quotation (RFQ) -> Vendor selection (Supplier) ->Purchase Order (PO)-> Goods Receipt
Inspections (Quality Inspection) -> Inventory management -> Invoice Processing /
Intra Function Process Flow:
Purchase demand for material -> Evaluate, select
potential source -> Create RFQ -> Selection of vendor -> Create purchase document -> Arrange delivery schedule
Processing of consumable material :
The cost of the materials received are posted directly to a cost center (job order).
The Raw material sent to Production for further process.
Those material can be finished or semi finished products.
Stock transfer processing:
Transfer between internal plants (multi-site inventory management).
Stock transfers can be of Raw Material for further processing.
Transfer of stock can be Finished product for Sales.
Stock transfer is integration between Material Management and Sales & Distribution.
Consignment stocks :
Usually the transfer of ownership of inventory occurs synchronously with the physical flow of the inventory
A vendor may stock parts at the buyer site (enhance maintenance)
Customers try to push the financial burden to vendors
MM has to track vendor-owned stock.
Vendor will deliver the stock as per requirements.
Company will be owner of vendor consignment stock.
Subcontract order processing:
Integrate the subcontractor in the logistics flow
Reserve, issue, receive material
Supply plan (from MRP / forecasting PP)
The company may maintain parts on subcontractor premises
The company will transfer semi finished material to subcontractor.
Approve the planned requirement.
Issue a requisition
Associate the requisition with a «source of supply»
Create RFQ, obtain bids
Create a subcontract purchase order
Send the purchase order to supplier
Generate purchase order
Issue component material to the subcontractor
Receive shipping notification
Receive items in stock through GR / Send item to Customer.
External services management :
Services are posted to a cost center (material are recorded in an inventory)Process
Requisition (from maintenance, production orders)
Select, RFQ, accept
Service purchase order
Integrate with FI (cash management, funds control)
I hope it helps.
