Classic scenario using SRM SOCO

Dear Experts,

We use SRM7.0.

We want to use classic scenario u2013 creating backend PO and not SRM PO.

Can we use the SRM SOCO if we want to create backend PO ?

To clarify myself, can we implement this procurement process:


2. The SC will go to the SRM SOCO u2013 Sourcing cockpit

3. The purchaser will create backend PO from the SC items on the SOCO

Or in case we want backend PO, we must use ME57 on ECC system ?

Thanks and regards,

Hi Lori,

If a classic PO is created then ERP is the leading system and PO can be changed in ERP

If extended PO is created then SRM is the leading system and PO can be changed in SRM and only a non editable copy of this PO is sent to ERP.

Hope this helps.
