Procurement 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 Accessscreen, choose .
You can assign a procurement cycle profile to the
