Yes you can have this with a custom transaction code.

You can take the help of ABAPers in this to develop a program copying from SAPLMEOR (ME01) and create a Y or Z t-code by adding a coloumn Valuation type. and make that field as mandatory so that user should not miss while maintaining source list for such material.

you dont change the table EORD as well it will not get stored anywhere, and when you open the source list next time the mandatory field is empty again .

And even you extend the table EORD to store this new field, you would have to change many more programms to make this field recognized.

Currently in SAP we define source list at Plant level.

Advantages of Creating custom source list at Valuation type(condition of material) level.

1) Ability to specify different supply sources based on the condition(i.e.Valuation types e.g. New, Overhaul, Repair etcu2026) of the material.

2) Automatic source determination of split valued materials not possible if different sources for new and Repair material, services exist.

3) Accurate visibility of customer orders and planned delivery dates.

4) To avoid incorrect sourcing of purchase orders related to split valued materials.

Automation of finding the correct supply source inside the SAP R/3 system. This will allow efficient process of purchase requisitions into purchase orders, which would also include enabling automatic purchase order creation. It would also significantly reduce the risk of incorrectly sourcing the material to the wrong vendor.
