By clicking on the hat icon (which recalls the head data -?) you get to where the target value of the contract is visible (in this case, of course, the sum of the two elements). I will now take a closer look at the target values for articles and heads in framework agreements. Supplier selection is an important process in the procurement cycle. Creditors can be selected based on the bidding process. After pre-selecting a creditor, an organization enters into an agreement with the latter to provide certain items subject to certain conditions. When an agreement is reached, a formal contract is usually signed with the Kreditor. A framework agreement is therefore a long-term purchase agreement with a creditor. The calendar, on the other hand, is more geared towards quantities and, beyond that, on concrete quantities of delivery on certain delivery dates (we speak of dates). Quite simply, these are more restrictive quantitative contracts - but in the analysis of the data in SAP® they appear separately with their own category of supporting documents in relation to volume or value contracts. But later. I hope that you have enjoyed addressing the issue of framework agreements and that we will soon meet again for the second part of the "Call Agreements".
Framework agreements are an important issue that we must constantly address in our analysis of procurement data. Unlike individual contracts, which are often ad hoc, framework agreements are constructs for a longer-term business relationship. Step 2 - Include the name of the creditor, the type of contract, the purchase organization, the buying group and the factory with the date of the contract. The above voucher categories are assigned as attributes to each purchase proof in the EKKO head data table (field: EKKO_BSTYP). This means that the document category allows us to distinguish delivery plans from other contracts. But how do you distinguish value contracts from volume contracts? This is where the storm table described above comes in: in the standard, the type of contract "MK" is for volume contracts and "WK" for value contracts. However, both types of documents have the same category of "K" document. While document categories are primarily used for categorization, document types are often used to customize, i.e. attributes are assigned to document types, which are then used to organize the process/control process in a system. You can also be in the EKKO table, the field name is EKKO_BSART. As a general rule, the objective of framework agreements is to set a ceiling or a total volume (i.e.
a target value). For quantity contracts that are very specific to individual materials and therefore often related to a material number (field: EKPO_MATNR), because the number of parts or the number of parts play an important role here (although there are other possibilities. B for an unknown material or consumables that I will not study here). This is why the target value here is at the level of the respective contract position, since the target quantity (field: EKPO_KTMNG) multiplied by the price of the material in question gives the reference value (field: EKPO_ZWERT) of each item. Contracts are often superior in nature. This may be the case with SAP® because the buying organization is essential (and the work that may be related to the purchase organization). The purchase organization is shown in the EKKO table for each agreement (field: EKKO_EKORG). However, in high-demand structures, large contracts (for example.
B the purchase of laptops throughout the company) are negotiated centrally and can then be used in a decentralized manner. In this case, it is possible to cooperate with near-superior purchasing organizations, which are attached to decentralized purchasing organizations as a reference purchasing organization.
