Purchase Order in SAP

Purchase order in SAP is used to procure the services or material from external sources or vendor, Purchase order can be used for internal procurement too like stock transfer order. Transfer goods from one warehouse to your own other warehouse. Purchase order can be used to subcontracting and consignment process too.

Purchase order creation is in process of P2P cycle, after material determination, requisition and finalizing the quotation purchase team will process the purchase order to vendor for which we evaluate quotation.

After finalizing vendor and materials purchase team will generate the purchase order to selected vendor on quoted price by vendor.

In SAP we will create the purchase order by transaction code ME21N by entering header details like Purchasing organization, Purchasing group, company code, and vendor etc. and in item details material number, quantity, plant, storage location and price and other rest details system will considered default or according to customized implemented.

PO can be Classified by Following List.

Standard – Receiving required materials from vendor, for example we need tag or laces we directly placed the standard order to selected vendor.

Subcontracting– Subcontracting is job work process provided raw materials (ROH) to vendor and vendor will process the raw material (ROH) to finished product (FERT), for example we ask for job work to vendor of our Sweatshirt which is not washed in this case we will ask to vendor for job work of washing and placed the subcontracting to vendor for washing.

Consignment-Purchasing materials that were kept in organization storage location and paying to vendor for that. It is used in contract of carriage.

Stock transfer – Transferring material within same organization, for example plant 1000 required some materials but it’s not available at plant 2000 in this case plant 2000 will ask for the required material to other plant 1000 if this materials stock is available at plant 1000.
