How to create new purchasing group in SRM?

Hi,

We are in ECS, SRM 7.03 and Org structure is not integrated with HR(maintained in SRM only).

We have 3 purchasing groups under one of the purchasing organization, now we want to add 2 more purchasing groups under the same.

I have below queries.

Do I need to create Pur.groups in ECC backend system and replicate to SRM?

Do I need to copy the existing ones and create new one?

What  are the parameters maintained for new pur.group?

How to check the consistency of the org structure with new purchasing group?

Please help me.

Best Regards,

Siddappa

Do I need to create Pur.groups in ECC backend system and replicate to SRM?

-> Purchase groups are not replicated from ECC however, the P.Grp that you are referencing to in SRM Org structure under the "Functions" tab should exist in the ECC system.

Do I need to copy the existing ones and create new one?

-> I believe, P.Grp cannot be copied

What  are the parameters maintained for new pur.group?

-> Maintain the relevant Product Categories (Material Groups) & Department IDs' to which the new P.grp corresponds to as it is crucial during the P.Grp determination in a SC.

How to check the consistency of the org structure with new purchasing group?

-> Report BBP_CHECK_CONSISTENCY should be able to help you in performing this check. (Refer to the following link)

Consistency Check for Organizational Plan (SAP Library - SAP ERP 2005 ? SAP SRM)
