Question

Answer

Which agreement types are relevant?

If scheduling agreement delivery schedule lines are to be created in the SCM system, the agreement type LP is relevant. If not, LPA should be used. (See also SAP Note 335097: Agreement Type in the Case of SAP APO Scheduling Agreement)

Are the ERP item categories relevant to the transfer?

The item category (standard, subcontracting, consignment) on the ERP side determines the form of procurement on the SCM side.

How is the area of validity regulated?

The item data is assigned to the plant. As a result, a transportation lane from the vendor (source location) to the relevant plant (destination location) and an external procurement relationship are created in the SCM system for each item of the scheduling agreement on the ERP side.

How is the validity period regulated?

The validity period of the scheduling agreements is transferred from the ERP system to the SCM system.

The validity period of the conditions (prices) is transferred from ERP to the SCM system.

How is the target quantity taken into account in the scheduling agreement?

The target quantity is not transferred to the SCM system.

Is the planned delivery time taken into account in the scheduling agreement?

The planned delivery time is transferred to the SCM system.

Is the goods receipt processing time taken into account in the scheduling agreement?

The goods receipt processing time is not transferred to the SCM system.

Are the prices taken into account in the scheduling agreement?

The prices (including the scale prices) are transferred to the SCM system. In addition to the prices from the scheduling agreement, conditions from the vendor master record are also used to calculate the effective price.

The price unit and the order price unit are transferred to the SCM system.

(SAP Note 368887: CIF Change Transfer of External Procurement Relationships describes for which tables a change pointer is written. If a change pointer is written, the scheduling agreement is taken into account in the change transfer.)

What is the significance of the External Scheduling field?

If this field is set to 1 (planning and release generation in the SCM system), the requirement coverage elements are created as schedule lines on the SCM side. Release creation and message output is thus mandatory in the SCM system. No more scheduling agreement delivery schedule lines can then be entered in the ERP system. The agreement type should thus be LP.
In the SCM system, these external procurement relationships can then be found under scheduling agreement SCM.

If this field is left blank, the requirement coverage elements are created as purchase requisitions on the SCM side. The requisitions can then be assigned to the scheduling agreement on the ERP side. Release creation and message output thus take place in the ERP system. The agreement type should be LPA.
This approach should be chosen for subcontracting scheduling agreements because it is not currently possible to plan subcontracting scheduling agreements on the SCM side.
It is possible to set a conversion indicator for purchase requisitions referencing a scheduling agreement in the SCM system. In this case, the requisitions are converted into scheduling agreement delivery schedule lines when they are transferred to the SCM system. In the SCM system, these external procurement relationships can then be found under scheduling agreement.

Are the terms of payment taken into account in the scheduling agreement?
