    Hi,

     

    A quota arrangement divides the total requirement of a material over a period among certain sources of supply by assigning a quota to each source.

     

    The quota specifies which portion of the total requirement should be procured from a given source.

     

    If a quota arrangement exists for a material, it is taken into account in the source determination process.

     

    A quota arrangement is specified for a certain period. A quota arrangement item is created for each source within the period

     

    To set up a quota arrangement for the procurement of a material, proceed as follows:

     

    Choose Master data ® Quota arrangement ® Maintain.

    Enter the material and plant number. Then press ENTER to display the overview screen for the quota arrangement periods.

    Enter a validity period for the quota arrangement.

    Enter the date until which the quota arrangement is valid. The start date is calculated by the system.

     

    Press ENTER .

     

    Select the quota arrangement and choose Goto ® Item overview to display the item overview screen of the quota arrangement.

    Enter a quota arrangement item for each source of supply you want to include in the quota arrangement. You must enter the following data.

    Procurement type

     

    A quota arrangement can provide for external procurement or in-house production. Enter f (the indicator for external procurement) in the P column.

     

    Special procurement type

     

    Enter k in the S column, for example, if a consignment arrangement for the material exists with the vendor.

     

    Vendor number

     

    Enter the number of the vendor from whom you want to procure, if the material is procured externally.

     

    Procurement plant (supplying plant):

     

    Enter the key of the procurement plant (supplying plant) in column PPl, if the procurement type provides for in-house production.

     

    Quota

     

    In the Quota column, enter the quota assigned to each item. The quota determines which portion of a total requirement over a period should be procured from the source in question.

     

    For example, suppose a quota arrangement contains two sources of supply and you enter a quota of 1 for both. This means that each source is then allocated 50% of the total requirements for the material over the period in question.

     

    Press ENTER .

    The percentage distribution of the quotas is calculated and displayed automatically by the system.

     

    Save the quota arrangement.

    The system assigns a number to the quota arrangement item automatically.

     

    Calculating the Quota Rating

     

    The system assigns a quota rating to each source of supply. The quota rating is calculated as follows:

     

    Quota-allocated quantity + Quota base quantity

     

     

     

     

     

     

    -

    -


    = Quota rating

    Quota

     

    where

     

    Quota-allocated quantity

    = Total quantity from all purchase requisitions, purchase orders, release orders, and scheduling agreement schedules allocated to a given source of supply. (The quantities of quota-allocated planned orders are also taken into account.)

    Quota base quantity

    = Quantity used to control the quota arrangement when new sources of supply are included.

    Quota

    = A number specifying which portion of a total requirement should be obtained from a certain source.

    The source with the lowest quota rating represents the valid source, even if it has a quota rating of 0 (that is, the quota-allocated quantity and the quota base quantity have the value 0). If more than one source of supply has a quota rating of 0, the item with the highest quota is the valid source of supply.

     

    According to the formula, the following applies: The higher the quota, the lower the quota rating and the higher the likelihood that the relevant source will be determined as the valid source.

    Hi Expert G.Ganesh Kumar,

     

    For the defintion of the "Quota-allocated quantity" you provided below.  Could you tell me the category or key figure associated with each item?

     

    Quota-allocated quantity

    = Total quantity from all purchase requisitions, purchase orders, release orders, and scheduling agreement schedules allocated to a given source of supply. (The quantities of quota-allocated planned orders are also taken into account.)

     

     

    Total quantity from all purchase requisitions = to what category or KF in planning book

    Purchase orders = to what category or KF in planning book

    Release orders = to what category or KF in planning book

    Scheduling agreement schedules allocated to a given source of supply = to what category or KF in planning book

    The quantities of quota-allocated planned orders are also taken into account = to what category or KF in planning book

     

    Thank you very much,

    Tom
