The source list is used in the administration of sources of supply.
It specifies the allowed (and disallowed) sources of a material for a certain plant within a predefined period. Each source is defined by means of a source list record.
The source list serves:
(For example, the fixed vendor for material 1 is Acme Corp. for the first quarter and Zenith Co. for the second quarter of the year.)
(This means, for example, that contract 123 may not be used for a certain period of time.)
(For example, the vendor Zenith Co. is determined as the source for an item of a requisition dated 15th June relating to material 1.)
(For example, material 1 may not be ordered from 01.01.98 to 12.31.98.)
