Why Extended Classic Scenario

Hello
I understand the difference between Extended Classic and Classic Scenario with the follow on document creation. But, I need to understand the business benifits of implementing Extended Classic Scenario as opposed to Classic Scenario in SRM. In what business scenario do one suggest Extended Classic.
Appreciate every answer
Thanks
Vijay

Hi Vijay,
The most important thing to consider when choosing the implementation scenario is to consider which system will support the different steps of the procurement process.
In case of the classic scenario, after creation of the request (shopping cart) in SRM, the remaining process steps will be handled / supported  in the back-end system (ECC). Goods receipt can be executed in both systems.  This would be a good choice if the organization has already an operational back-end system and the users from the purchasing department are already familiar (and happy) with all the MM functionality.  SRM will only function as a support tool for administrating the purchasing needs of the end-users in the organization.
In case of the extended-classic implementation scenario the complete purchasing process will be supported in the SRM system (most organizations prefer to use the back-end system for invoice verification). Thus requesters, purchasers, goods recipients etc. all will use the SRM system to support their respective activities.  This would be the preferred scenario in case both MM (ECC) and SRM are new to the organisation and will be implemented together.
SRM offers the different users a nicer user interface as opposed to the R/3 screens. Also the (strategic) sourcing capabilities of SRM can only be used  when implementing the extended classic scenario. Same for the Suplier Enablement business scenariou2019s. Most are only supported when extended classic is active.
So depending on the intentions of the organization a choice can be made. SRM only as a tool for administrating the decentralized request from the end users in the organization: Classic scenario will suffice. SRM as a tool to support the complete purchasing process, from sourcing till  evaluation - Extended classic will be the correct choice.

  • No GR on Confirmation Approval in Extended Classic Scenario

    Hi all gurus out there,
    We are trying to implement confirmation approval workflow in our SRM system. Our SRM version is SRM 3.0 or EBP 4.0 and we are operating in extended classic scenario.
    We implement the approval workflow WS10400002 (1-step approval) and WS10400010 (no approval). WS10400002 is used in situation when an administrator does the confirmation and will go to the requestor for approval. Here, when the requestor approves the confirmation, the status is updated correctly to 'Approved' but no goods receipt is triggered by the system. We looked at the workflow and found that there is no task/activity to do the post goods receipt in the backend system.
    Can someone please confirm whether these are the correct workflows that I should be using and that it is not a bug? I just want to make sure it is not as a result of a standard limitation before going back to SAP.
    Cheers!
    Siow Fong

    Hi Guys,
    I checked with SAP on this and found out that the standard codes would have created the goods receipt. This creation is no longer coded in the workflow itself (like the old workflow used to be). The reason why it was not working for us was a piece of code being added that prevented the creation of the goods receipt.

  • PO approval process in ECC for extended classic scenario

    Hi All,
    At this moment we are using SAP ECC for procure to pay process. In the existing system set up, our ECC purchase order goes for approval via SAP enterprise portal(EP). We are planing to implement SRM 7.0 Extended classic scenario, so that user can take the advantage of creating PO in their web portal. We don't want to disturb our existing ECC PO approval process at this point of time.  
    So our requirement is :
    User will create PO in SRM. Same PO will replicated in ECC and the PO will goes for approval in in ECC and the PO output will generate in ECC. Can it me possible in extended classic scenario ?
    Thanks in advance.
    Regards,
    Jennifer

    Hi Jennifer,
    Since SRM PO will be leading PO in extended classic scenario, why donot you design the process controlled workflow in line with the existing release strategy that you are using for ECC PO?

  • PO status Held in extended classic scenario

    Hello SRM gurus,
             I am very new to SRM with MM background. I have a question which i think you guys might have come across earlier.
    We are using version 5.5 extended classic scenario, replicated all the vendors and materials from R/3 to SRM, did all the basic configuration needed, we are able to see those vendors and materials in SRM also. here is the issue. we are trying to add an item to the shopping cart which in turn creates a PO in SRM so that it automatically replicates in R/3. But the PO status in SRM is Held and we found out that vendor is not assigned to the PO which is very clear why the PO has been held. So what could be reason the vendor is not getting assigned to the PO though we have the inforecord and source list(checked the fix indicator also)for the same material and vendor in R/3 ?
    I'm sure many of u would have come across this issue. please help me out.

    Hi Satya
          Thanks for your quick response.
    1) We are using Workflow without approval process
    2) I checked BBP_NUM_SUSPO in SRM server. There is nothing in there. Is this the correct number range for PO? I checked OMH6 in R/3. please tell me how to sync it.
       When we try to post it after editing the PO with vendor number, we are getting Waiting for approval error though we have activated Without workflow approval process. let me know why is it showing that error?
    We have another strange issue which is, We have assigned a material say M01 to a pur.group P01,Pur.org POrg1 and vendor V01 and have info record and source list, but we don't see this Pur.grp when we create the shopping cart and it defaults to some other pur.grp say AP01 which we deleted long back. can you tell me where it is picking up the deleted ones?
    thanks

  • Status I1113 missing in SC in Extended classic scenario using TA BBP_POC

    Hi all,
    I am using SRM in extended classic scenario (ECS) (SRM Server 5.5) SP09.
    1. Scenario (without any problems)
    Shopping carts have been succesfully replicated from R/3 with standard report
    BBP_EXTREQ_TRANSFER.
    transfered to Sourcing Cockpit.
    No problems at all using standard Sourcing Cockpit -> POs are replicated to R/3, status correctly transfered into Shopping Carts (Status I1113 after creating a PO out of SC).
    2. Scenario (problems concerning Status I1113 in SC)
    Shopping carts have been succesfully replicated from R/3 with standard report
    BBP_EXTREQ_TRANSFER.
    transfered to Sourcing Cockpit.
    Shopping carts are manually transfered into a local PO by using standard transaction BBP_POC (create PO) -> function "Add shopping cart item" within item data
    Local PO is created without any problem, sucessfully replicated to R/3 and if I start the Monitor for shopping carts I get all the detailed information (follow on documents) -> PO number etc.
    Problem: If I use TA BBP_POC and add these shopping carts to PO positions, the status I1113 is not written to SC after executing BBP_GET_STATUS_2 and CLEAN_REQREQ_UP .
    The SC remains in Status I1106 (Shopping Cart ordered) / I1129 (approved)
    I cant find any entries in table BBP_DOCUMENT_TAB and the shopping carts have been removed from SoCo after creating a PO out of it...
    Does anybody uses Transaction BBP_POC in ECS and adds Shopping Carts to POs?
    Any Idea why the status for these SCs is just I1106 "Shopping Cart ordered" but status I1113 "Follow-on Document Created" is missing/not updated?
    Best regards,
    Andreas

  • SUS-MM vs SUS-EBP (Extended CLassic Scenario)

    Hi!
    We have an extended classic scenario already up and running between ERP->EBP system without XI usage.
    Now it is necessary to configure SUS integration for ASN creation purpose. As I can see SAP has 2 standard configuration guides: one for SUS-MM and another one for SUS-EBP, but they are not fully relevant for ECS.
    Could anybody tell me please from what system EBP or ERP it is better to send PO to SUS system when we are using extended classic scenario? And what are advantages/disadvantages of this?
    Thanks and Regards,
    Siarhei

    Hi Dinesh!
    Thank you for your answer! It is clear that leading PO is in EBP, but why I can't use ORDERS and ORDCHG IDOCs to transfer PO and PO chnages to SUS?
    One other question: do you know whether Configuration Guide for ECS exsits (like SUS-MM and SUS-EBP documents)?

  • PO attachment transfer to ECC - Extended classic scenario

    Hi all,
    We are on SRM 5.0 ECS.As standard,can the SRM PO attachments be transferred to  ECC PO?Is this possible in  ECS?If so,what are the steps?

    HI Alexander,
    The purchase order in the Extended Classic Scenario is transferred to the backend system with different Function Modules. The
    attachment transfer logic was only implemented in the Classic Scenario.
    One reason for this decision was, that the leading Purchase Order in the extended classic scenario is the local one, and in the local purchase order the attachments are available.
    At the moment it is not planned to support the attachment transfer in the Extended Classic Scenario. The transfer of attachments to backend PO is developed only for Classic Scenario.
    I am sorry that this is not the result that you wanted. This also explains why in the ECS PO transfer BADI BBP_ECS_PO_OUT_BADI does not have the parameters for attachments where as the Classic PO transfer
    BADI does (BBP_CREATE_BE_PO_NEW).
    We have some notes related to SC and POR reporting issues when transferring attachments to ECC side, but ther are related to Classic scenario:
    1400088: SC attachments transferred to ECC PR are lost on EHP upgrade
    1413792 Attachment deleted after changing purchase order
    I hope this information help you to understand this issue,
    Kind Regards,

  • Why extended Classic is implemented

    Hi Everybody,
    I was working in SAP SRM for past 3 years and only Support Experience. Yesterday attended an interview and he asked me why your client has implemented Extended Classic why not Classic Scenario?
    I know it depends to client-to-client.
    Can any one let me know the list of points need to be discussed to support this question. My answer was not impressive.
    Sree

    Hi Sree,
    You are right here it depends on the client whether to configure the system for extended classic and classic scenario.
    The extended classic scenario suits customer who wants to
    their purchasing department to save time and money by using the streamlined purchasing functionality of SAP SRM
    use the full sourcing capabilities offered by SAP SRM, yet who also want to be able to confirm and invoice direct materials
    the flexibility of being able to pre-enter confirmations and invoices
    Where the classic scenario suits the customer who wants:
    wide user group, for example employees not necessarily working in the purchasing department, to be able to enter their requirements quickly and easily. SAP SRM’s functionality and ease of navigation allow this, as it requires only minimal training
    their purchasing department to operate solely with the functionality offered by the backend system(s)
    For whom a transfer of purchasing activities to SAP SRM is not viable in SAP SRM
    You can use both the classic and extended classic capabilities by configuring the product categories
    Please let me know if the above answer is helpful.
    Best Regards,

  • POR transferred into MM(Backend) system in Extended Classic Scenario

    I am working on standard EBP-SUS Extended Classic Scenario. We have SRM Server 7.0 SP9 
    As we are successfully send PO from EBP to SUS.
    Issue : On working to Purchase Order Response,i am getting POR sent by SUS to EBP but we are not getting it replicated to MM.
    Our Concerns about is it need extra configuration required or need to have apply some note to getting replicated POR in MM from EBP or have to configure some XI Scenario to replicate POR from SRM EBP to MM.
    As we know that Extended Classic Scenario supports till Purchase Order Response still we are not getting Purchase Order Response in MM.

  • PO text transfer to Back-end in case of Extended Classic Scenario in SRM 4.

    Dear experts,
    My system is in SRM 4.0 in Extended Classic Scenario. We use in the PO internal note text and vendor But thses texts are not transfered to Back-end.
    Is it normal?
    Do I need to customize something?
    Can it be achieved by BADi? How then?
    OR is it only possible from SRM 5.0?
    Thanks in advance
    RD

    Yes you can do this. Implement BADI BBP_CREATE_BE_PO_NEW, Refer parameter IS_SC_DOCUMENT>LONGTEXT,  and CS_PO_DOCUMENT>IT_PO_ITEM_TEXT. Map the exact text-id of the R/3.
    Note: if this BADI is not present, use BBP_CREATE_PO_BACK

  • Freight is not updated in R/3 in the Extended Classic scenario

    Friends,
    Freight is not updated in R/3 in the Extended Classic scenario.
    Once a PO is ordered, if a freight condition in SRM is applied, it does not get updated in R/3.
    We have created a condition for Freight (Value and Percentage)in Create
    Payment Conditions using the following menu path:
    spro
    --> Supplier Relationship Management
    --> SRM Server
    --> Cross-Application Basic Settings
    --> Pricing
    --> Process Payment Conditions
    When creating a Purchase Order in SRM in the "Item Data" tab, there is
    a"Pricing" option. Choose "Pricing" and select "Add Further Conditions"
    from the drop down menu. Here Freight is available. Add Freight and
    the PO record in SRM is updated with the Freight Condition. However,
    upon ordering, the Freight condition does not transfer to the PO
    recordin R/3.
    We've heard this can be achieved by enhancement: only ie by implementing
    set of BADIs..  But does anyone know WHICH BADIs we need?  Or how we could find out?  Thanks.

    Hi
    <b> You can either of these BADIs to handlwe the scenario.</b>
    BBP_CREATE_BE_PO_NEW Exit while creating a purchase order in the backend system
    BBP_CREATE_PO_BACK   OLD Exit while creating a PO in the backend system     
    BBP_ECS_PO_OUT_BADI  ECS: PO Transfer to Logistics Backend                  
    BBP_EXTLOCALPO_BADI  Control Extended Classic Scenario
