Object documentationProcurement Cycle (Profile)


The procurement cycle defines the frequency with which products are ordered or delivered (weekly on a specific day of the week, for example).

You can use the following types of procurement cycles in SAP F&R:

  • Strict order cycle

  • Strict delivery cycle

  • Combined order and delivery cycle

SAP F&R calculates the planned delivery time as the difference between the order date and the delivery date, dependent on the procurement cycle type.


  • SAP F&R uses the procurement cycle within scheduling to calculate order days and delivery days.

  • You can create and maintain procurement cycles in the master data for profile data for the procurement cycle. On the SAP Easy Access screen, choose Start of the navigation path Forecasting and Replenishment Next navigation stepMaster Data Next navigation stepProcurement Cycle End of the navigation path.

  • You can assign a procurement cycle profile to the transportation lanes for subranges or the transportation lanes for products.

  • You can import procurement cycles. For more information, see Inbound Interface for Procurement Cycles.
