    Hi Santosh,

     

    Purchasing groups relevant to P.org you can created under p.org orgnization unit via PPOMA_BBP.

    Then assign the respective back end p.group via function tab.

     

    You can find the snap shot for the same. If you have any specific criteria to assign back end p.group and don't want to assign back end p.grop in SRM Org.strucutre, then you can define your own criteria through BADI

     

    BBP_PGRP_ASSIGN_BADI

    BBP_PGRP_FIND

     

    Explore bit more about above mentioned badi's to find relevance about business specific requirements.

     

    Regarding assigning p.group to a shopping cart, it is a automatic process based on structure setup.

     

    Basically, p.grop assignment can be controlled via product categories & responsible user org unit / user position (which is further level of control beyond product categories)

     

    Find the snap shot regarding org.structure settings:

        Hi Santosh,

         

        In SRM there is no concept of assigning purchasers to P.group, what is your business case so that I can provide you how it will work.

         

        In general, if you want to create a purchase order (without preceding shopping cart), then the person who wants to raise a PO should be under some purchasing group in SRM Org.structure.

         

        Please let us know the requirement so that we can think how it can be achieved.

         

        Regards,

        Govardhan

          Hello Govardhan

           

          Here a user creates a shopping cart. The P.grp and P. Org is determined based on the organizational and product responsibility. Then this SC is approved and should move on to purchasers work list (Purchaser should be informed about approved SC related to the P.grp). From Sourcing cockpit the Purchaser should access the shopping cart and create a follow on document (ECS).

           

          We have 5 different purchasing organization and 8 purchasing groups. We need to restrict the purchasers  to a certain purchasing groups so they are allowed to create PO only for this groups. I dont want to implement a BADI. Is there any standard way of doing that.

           

          Second, I want to link a Purchasing group to more than one purchasing organization is it possible.

           

          Can you please help on this. Thanks in Advance.

            For concerned Purchasing Groups, assign user's position (staff or purchaser assignments)

            No, in SRM standard, this is not possible.
