Order as direct material

Hi Experts,

We are on SRM 7.0, ECC 6.0 (classic)

Our indirect procurement is working fine. Please guide as to what changes to make from config side to enable direct material procurement from SRM.

I am aware of the process in portal, but any backend settings?

This topic is getting deviated from your first thread question. Earliere you said how to use Order as Direct Material and that question was answered I guess. Now you are asking about the error which is a new quetion. You should open a new thread by assigning points to this thread.

Based on your error message it seems a PR is being created instead of a PO. It happens when the SC is not complte, ex. Fixed Vendor is not assigned. This is standard SRM behaviour. How did you create SC? using internal goods? How was the vendor assigned?

You might have assigned desired vendor and not Fixed vendor to the SC. To create a PO, fixed vendor is required. That is why system is trying to create a PR instead of PO. Please check your SC and assign fixed vendor, this will resolve the issue. Otherwise develop the Badi to create Po even when desired vendor is assigned to the SC for direct material. This all depends on your business scenario how you want to process direct materials. Or maintain a contract for that material so that system will assign it to the SC as a fixed vendor and a PO would be created.

If you still have any further questions open a new thread by closing this one.
