Hope that you have created all distribution centres as plants, and all the plants(distribution centres)created as 'plant as vendor' . Since STO is being created to these distribution centres and supply received from each.
Maintain standard vendor evaluation configuration for the plants/purchase organisation of yours as below :-
#1) Define Weighting Keys (IMG --> Material Management --> Purchasing --> Vendor Evaluation --> Define Weighting Keys): This is a Key that reflect how much a valuation criteria is considered important.
2) Define evaluation criterias (IMG --> Material Management --> Purchasing --> Vendor Evaluation --> Define Criteria): elements or factors by which the system computes scores for vendors. You have to specify if the scores are computed manually, semi-automatically , or automatically. The SAP standard system includes several evaluation criterias. For each purchasing organization you then specify whether the main and subcriteria can be maintained manually. You also determine the weighting of the subcriteria.
3) Define Purchasing Organization Data for Vendor Evaluation (IMG --> Material Management --> Purchasing --> Vendor Evaluation --> Define Purchasing Organization Data for Vendor Evaluation): you define individual Vendor Evaluation System settings for each purchasing organization: Best score, Period in calendar days within which data is to be taken into consideration for vendor evaluation purposes, Form name to enable text formatting for score list, etc.
4) Define scope of list (IMG --> Material Management --> Purchasing --> Vendor Evaluation --> Define scope of List): You define various types of list for representing different main criteria or the same main criteria in a different order.
ensure that on time Delivery crieteria is configured as per business need. After configuration, run few cycle of process tests, create delivery cycles and run standard vendor evaluation reports to know the evaluation results.
