ML81n Service entry held by several users at same time

The scenario in our retail system is:

Same vendor supply the same service for all plants. Services are centrally managed by central offices.

User creates single monthly based service PO with one item position for each plant, wich means 650 plants = 650 PO items.

During ML81n users are getting blocked caused by PO is treated by someone esle from another plant.

Is there any standard option to skip the error ME006 User XXX already processing Purchase order 4500XXXX?

I haven't found any clue so far.

Thank's in advance.

Your business have 650 plants and looks like you need to redefine processes.

Why you cannot go for below process

1. Create a single contract for your vendor

2. Create purchase order/service order from that new one contract  for each plant- You will have 650 purchase orders

3. You can do service entry sheet for individual plant for each purchase order created for that plant
