Workload Redistribution

Currently there is a transaction using which the Purchasing group and purchasing organization responsible for a requirement can be changed. This is not available directly from the Sourcing Application and hence makes it cumbersome.

Feature:

It shall be possible to change the Purchasing group and purchasing organization responsible for a requirement from the Sourcing Application.

Purchaser can change the Purchasing group and purchasing organization responsible for a requirement/Shopping Cart directly from the Sourcing Application.

  • It shall be possible to re-distribute only those shopping carts that are relevant for the sourcing application(Sourcing Cockpit)
  • It shall be possible to lead select one or more SC items displayed in SOCO first step and change the purchasing group
  • It shall be possible to lead select one or more SC items displayed in SOCO first step and change the purchasing organization
  • It shall be possible to lead select one or more SC items displayed in SOCO first step and assign them to be assigned automatically

This improvement request improves the usability of the application. In order to change the purchasing group and organization of shopping carts with a wrong assignment, buyers had to navigate to the workload redistribution transaction.This can now be done from the sourcing application itself and thus it improves end user productivity.


Information:

To use the feature, you have to first activate the Business Function SRM_CONT_IMPR and then activate the Customizing switch Workload Redistribution in Sourcing Application (SRM_700_WKL_SOCO) under SRM Server-> Sourcing-> Activate/Deactivate Workload Redistribution in Sourcing Application.
