Regarding direct material procurement in Classic scenario.

Hello SRM Gurus ,
We are implementing SRM5.0 classic scenario, (SSP with CCM).
As per standard , Shopping cart for a direct material (Requisition for
stock) will create a follow-on document in SRM only (controlled extended
classic scenario).
Client's requirement is that it should create a back-end PR in R/3 system.
Reason being, the client needs to have only one indenting system and one
procurement system.
which BAPI in R/3 for PR/PO has to be used to create PRs or Pos from SRM. Similarly, RFC  which FMs have to be used to update status in SRM.
How to bypass the standard replication mechanism.
Please help me..
Thanks and regards,

<b>Why not go for the BADI -> BBP_TARGET_OBJTYPE</b>
<u>Alternatively using SPRO settings, you can change the standard behaviour of the system based on various attrbutes e.g., for a Particular Product, Item category, etc.</u>
<b>Here is the Path ->
IMG -> Supplier Relationship Mnagement -> SRM Server -> Cross-Application Basic settings -> Define Objects in Backend System (Purch. Reqs, Reservations, Purch. Orders)</b>
<b>Define Objects in Backend System (Purch. Reqs, Reservations,</b>
You perform this step only if you create your Materials Management documents in a backend system.
You specify the documents that are to be created in the backend system for a requirement coverage request.
The following documents can be created:
Purchase requisition
Purchase order
You enter a product category (such as office supplies, or hardware) and/or an organizational unit. The organizational unit contains the purchasing group that is responsible for procuring products in this category.
You can enter the product category generically, such as Office*.
The backend system is determined  using the product category in the requirement coverage request item. The item also contains the organizatinal unit.
You can use the Business Add-In BBP_TARGET_OBJTYPE if you wish to implement a different logic for creating documents in the backend system.
If purchasing group 01 wants to procure materials from the category Raw Materials, a reservation is to be created every time.
If materials in the category PC are to be procured, a purchase requisition is to be created every time.
1. Enter the organizational unit and/or the category.
2. Enter a source system.
3. Choose the procurement type.
Reservation if stock is available, otherwise external procurement
The system creates a reservation if the material is subject to inventory management and sufficient stock quantity is available in the warehouse on the requested date.
Always reservation for materials subject to inventory management
The system creates a reservation if the material is subject to inventory management, irrespective of whether stock is available.
Always external procurement
The system does not create a reservation, but always procures the item externally. In this case, you specify the type of external procurement.
The following options are significant if the system cannot create a reservation (for example, if there is no stock available or for a non-stock item) or the system must not create a reservation (choose Always external procurement).
Purchase order if item data complete, otherwise purchase requisition
The system always tries to create a purchase order. If the item data is incomplete (for example, the vendor or price is not known), the system creates a purchase requisition from the item.
Always purchase requisition
The system always creates a purchase requisition.
Always local purchase order
The system always creates a local purchase order.
Hope this will help.
Please reward suitable points.

  • Direct material procurement in PDP scenario for classic mode

    Dear Gurus,
    We have configured classic scenario in our SRM 7.01 with backend system ECC 6.0 Enhpk 5.  We have PDP scenario for direct material as one of the requirement. The requirement generated in MRP in the ECC backend system will be sent to SRM SOCO for sourcing. Once the right source of supply is found, the follow-on purchase order needs to be created in the ECC backend system in direct material mode.
    However, the SAP SRM standard supports only indirect material procurement in PDP scneario for classic mode. How to enable the direct material procurement? Could you suggest any BAdi to be used here?
    Thanks and regards,
    Ranjan Sutradhar

    You need to activate the Bsdi 'ME_REQ_SOURCING_CUST' for transferring the purchase requisitions from ERP to SAP SRM.
    Some details about the method involved for the same are mentioned below :
    ->when parameter CV_AUT_SOURCING is set to true, external sourcing (e.g. SRM system) is active in ERP system
    ->when parameter CV_EXT_RFX_IND is set to true, RFx can be created out of PR directly from ERP system using application CPPR
    ->when parameter CV_EXT_SC_IND is set to true, PR in ERP system will be transferred to SRM using application CPPR
    Here you need to maintain the logic / condition for which PR has to be transfered to SOCO.
    IF ( is_req_item-ekgrp = 'SRM' AND is_req_item-matkl = '100' )
    cv_ext_sourcing = cl_mmpur_constants=>yes.
    When this BADI is active whenever you save a PR with say the purchasing group as SRM and material group is 100 (as per sample code above), system automatically triggers the PR transfer from ERP to SRM by xml's.

  • Manage direct procurement in classic scenario

    Hi Experts,
    We are on SRM 701
    Classic Scenario
    can anyone let me know how we can manage direct procurement in classic scenario?
    i want to kept goods in storage location and i cant do that because of account assignment tap in SC and as i know account assignment is mandatory to create a Sc

    Hello Elham,
          As suggested Account Assignment should always be used and one cannot skip it for creating the Shopping Cart. If you are having Classic Scenario then your PO would be in backend system directly which you can manage through dummy account assignment as guided you in your previous post. Just get in touch with your Finance Team and ask them to make a Dummy Profit Center/Cost Center which you can use while creating SC for your local Storage

  • Plan Driven Procurement in Classic scenario

    Dear SAP gurus,
    We are in SRM 7 EHP 1 with backend ECC 6 EHP 5. We are considering to use classic scenario, but we want to make sure that all the components are working fine. We have a scenario where MRP will be used in backend thus crearting a PR. We know that we can then push the PR to become SC in SRM then it can be processed there.
    However seein note 505030 point 15, it seems that you cannot procure direct material using classic scenario. I assume that if using classic scenario, the PR of stock materials just wont go to SRM. However in other places I read that actually stock material works for classic scenario, but the PO will automatically switch to extended classic.
    So which one is correct? Is:
    1. For PDP and in classic environment, PR stock material NOT able to go to SRM, OR
    2. For PDP and in classic environment, PR stock material can go to SRM, but when it is converted to PO it switch to extended classic.
    Best regards,

    Hi John,
    The second option works in SRM.
    Direct procurement in classic scenario works as if the system were extended classic. Thus your PO will be created in SRM and a copy of it will be replicated to ECC.

  • Self service procurement and plan driven procurement in classic scenario

    hai friends,
    i have configured self service procurement and now i am configuring plan driven procurement in classic doubt is suppose  a shopping cart is created and placed in a sourcing application of the professional buyer.And assume he accomplished sourcing activity and created purchase order .Now purchase order is created locally or in the backed.i am using classic scenario ,now can u tell where the purchase order is located? if i want to place that particular purchase order in SRM  it self what will i do? thanks in advance.

    Hi Chandra
    before going to select Business scenario (self service, plan driven..etc), you must freeze the technical scenario. Depends upon your technical scenario, your PO will be created .
    Where PO is created it is called leading system. It is SAP standard.
    If you were selected  Classic- Po created in R/3.- R/3 is a leading system .
    if you were select ECS- > PO will created in SRM and Copy also will be created in R/3 system. In EBP only you can edit the PO not in r/3. here SRM is a Leading system.


    please explain , what is the differance between DIRECT MATERIAL PROCUREMENT and INDIRECT MATERIAL PROCUREMENT.please explain with example.

    Procurement materials can be broken down into two major categories: indirect and direct.
    Indirect procurement involves any commodity or service that a company buys that does not result directly in finished goods.
    Indirect procurement can be divided into two groups: ORM (Operations Resource Management) materials such as office products and travel services, and MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operations) materials such as replacement parts.
    Direct procurement involves materials purchased for use in the manufacturing or distribution supply chain that are "directly" related to the production of finished goods.

  • Direct Procurement in Classic Scenario

    Hi Experts,
    We are on SRM 7 Ehp1, ECC 6 Ehp4.
    Classic Scenario.
    1. I have read in the forums , that in Classic Scenario, direct procurement is possible but the system behaves like Extended Classic and creates a Local PO. Just want to confirm this and if yes , does this happen as a standard or do we need to implement any BADI or anything to achieve this.
    2. Also , in Classic Scenario, PDP scenario , can we transfer stock items(Direct Materials) PR's into SRM system or are there any limitations.

    Hi Aditya,
    You are right. Classic system behaves as extended classic for Direct procurement scenario. Your PO will be created in SRM itself and a copy of this will be sent to ECC. This happens as a standard and no BADIs need to be implemented for this.
    Also in your classic system, you can transfer stock PRs into SRM. These will be available as shopping carts in the sourcing cockpit.

  • Issue in PO creation for Direct Material Procurement.

    Hi Experts,
    I am working with SRM 7.0 Classic Scenario.
    I have no issues with SC creation for indirect materials with Account Assignment.
    But when I select Order as Direct material in SC for any material with out account assignment on Approval of SC PO is created in SRM system as Extendended Classic Scenario even though I have not activated Extended classic scenario.
    Kindly help me out in this issue how can I order as DIRECT MATERIAL WITH Classic scenario.

    it is standard behavior,
    but you can do one thing .
    BBP_CREATE_BE_PO_NEW  BADI - TRY . CLEAR THE ACCOUNT ASSIGNMENT .Thats all . check it up with technical resoucre.
    but you have to decide by developemnt what are the materials are PO with account / without account assignment

  • Stock Procurement by Classic Scenario

    We are using SRM Server 5.5 as an add-on component to ECC 6.0. Only Classic deployment is in our scope.
    Can anybody clarify me if we can procure Stock Material by Classic deployment of SRM?
    While creating SC, when I click on 'Order as Direct Material' system is unable to determine the Purchasing Group and Org. So its unable to get replicated into R/3.

    Hi Jagdish,
    SAP told us that standard Classic scenario can't handle Stock procurement. For stock proc we need to have the extended classic scenario. In Extended classic we have Plan-driven procurement and we can do it there. Once again for stock procurement we need to define Local Purch grp and purch org and we need to have POs in SRM. POs in SRM is possible for Extended Classic scenario and this is not a part of Classic scenario.
    SAP said that if we want to create Stock SC in SRM then we have to go for development.
    Can anybody in this forum please confirm that in Classic Scenario we can't create a Stock SC (Without development)?
    If you refer to OSS note 963000, it says that in ADD-ON SRM , only classic scenario is supported. If this is the case why I can see the 'Order as Direct Material' button.
    Can anybody help me here??

  • Doubts in PO's after a Bid invitation in Classic Scenario

    Hello everyone,
    I am working in SRM 5.0 in a classic scenario. I have a doubt, I do de following:
    1. Create a PR in R/3
    2. Replicate the PR in SRM as SC
    3. Create a Bid invitation form the SC
    4. Accept a Bid
    5. Create a PO
    In the 5th step, the PO is created in both system (SRM and R/3). Is this correct?
    I though that only the PO is created in R/3.

    Hi Ivan,
    Pls see this thread which discusses abt the workaorunds for your requirement to create the PO in R/3 backend instead of locally in  SRM.

  • Create PO as direct material

    Hello SRM Experts,
    SRM 5.0 (classic scenario)
    we like to create a PO, from a QUOT after BID, with transaction type "ECDP" (Direct Material). Therefore we select in QUOT the transaction type "ECDP" and press the "Create PO" button. I can´t see any differents to the transaction type "ECPO" (Normal PO). The Backround is that we like to create a PO without account data (e.g. G/L account, cost center), but we got the same error message both "ECPO" and ECDP". The error message from backend is ME 083 "No cost center".
    Has anybody of you an idea how I can use the direct material functionality in QUOT.
    Thanks for you help in advance.
    Kind regards

  • Direct procurement in Classic

    Need your help once again.
    I have implemented direct procurement in Classic scenario (SRM 7/ECC 6.0) and after reading on this forum, I realised that Direct procurement in classic, functions as extended classic because a local PO is created in SRM and this is replicated to ECC. So far this is working for me.
    Now I want to make changes to this PO. It is not allowing me to edit PO in ECC which is right because PO was created in SRM and copied to ECC. But strangely, I am unable to edit PO in SRM also?
    Is this correct behaviour?
    Please suggest.
    Best Regards,

    Hi John,
    For direct procurement, it will have nothing to do with CS or ECS.
    SRM will create the local PO for direct material and transfer the PO into ERP.  And you could not change the PO in ERP.

  • How to use the direct material indicator in Plan Driven Procurement?

    Dear Experts,
    How the system determine the procurement as direct material procurement in Plan driven scenario? In case of manual shopping cart, the system determines the direct material /indirect material procurement based on the check box 'Order as direct material'
    Now in case of plan driven procurement, where the requisition comes from ECC system, there is no way to indicate in the MM system for direct material?
    Could you please enlighten me here?
    Thanks and regards,

    Hi Ranjan,
    In case of manual shopping cart, system at that point does not know whether the material procured has inventory management maintained or material valuation. Hence we need to specify option of 'Order as direct material'.
    But when requisition is created in ECC system, SAP system already is aware of direct procurement since material used will have material master / Inventory management / Material valuation / Storage location etc maintained. And the info or some indicator will be sent to front end SRM system accordingly. 
    Moreover it does not really matter for front-end SRM system to check whether it's a direct or indirect procurement since all procurement processes followed in SRM will be exactly same.
    Hope this provides some kind of understanding for your questions.
