Dear Reddy,

In my understanding this direct procurement is a special planning process in MRP.

Use:Using the direct procurement procedure, you can order BOM components for an order directly instead of via the

warehouse.

Direct procurement is also possible in connection with make-to-order production and engineer-to-order production.

There are two alternative processes:

using the special procurement key Direct procurement - This process is like the direct production process.

using the item category Non-stock item.(SAP recommends the process using special procurement key).

Process Using the Special Procurement Key for Direct Procurement

You have set the item type stock item for the components in the BOM, which are to be procured directly.

If you want to use direct procurement for a particular component all the time, you have entered the special procurement key for direct procurement in the material master for the component (MRP 2 view).

If you want to use direct procurement for a particular BOM only, you have entered the special procurement key for direct procurement in the corresponding BOM item in the MRP data area. This entry overwrites the entry in the material master.

If you have activated direct procurement in the material master, you can switch off direct procurement for a particular BOM, if you deactivate direct procurement in the MRP data area of the corresponding BOM item under Explosion type. This entry overwrites the entry in the material master.

Process Using the Item Category for Non-Stock Item.

You have set the item type non-stock item for the components in the BOM that are to be procured directly. You have also entered an item number and a detailed long text for the BOM item.

This is the only possible process for materials without a material master.

So in my understanding I dont think backflush or manual GI will be possible for such items.

Correct me if I'm wrong,

Regards
