The integration with MM Purchasing
allows the following transaction data to be transferred to the CO
Goods receipt postings
Invoice receipt postings
For this data transfer to take place from Purchasing, the
purchase order must be assigned to an internal order, a cost
center, or a project.
Types of Purchase Order
There are two different types of
purchase order processing in MM Purchasing:
Individual purchase order
As well as an accurate description of what is ordered, the
individual purchase order specifies a deadline for the delivery of
the material or the service.
An outline agreement is a long-term agreement with a vendor to
supply goods or perform services according to specific terms and
conditions. Unlike individual purchase orders, the deadline for the
individual service is not yet fixed. This must be made using an
additional transaction, the so-called Release.
