Your suppliers need shorter transit times. Smaller deliveries are required and can be spread over a longer period. Delivery planning allows suppliers to plan and allocate their resources more efficiently. We need to contract with SAP, but we can`t decide whether we should opt for contracts, delivery plans or STANDARDPO. A manual contract is concluded with a fixed value and the material provided is used in this contract by different projects. Now it turns out that many of all projects are used. The crowd is therefore not predefined. Our sales manager also doesn`t want us to build multiple POs with different SPEs. I have no clarification on contracts and SAs. Can you help me, please? I`m new to SAP. The positions of the delivery plan are of an official nature, i.e. they are transmitted to the supplier when they are stored in the system. The system does not document shares sent to the supplier against the delivery plan.

Therefore, in the undocumented document type, the message order must be configured so that a message is immediately sent to the supplier in the event of a change in the delivery plan deposited in the system. All open delivery plans are always distributed. delivery plan distances (including the head and the actual delivery plan) are issued to the supplier who orders him to make deliveries of the material concerned on the dates indicated. Suppliers may issue certificates to the competent purchasing organisation attesting that they meet or do not meet the scheduled delivery dates. Goods entries become delivery plans in the same way as orders. Using delivery plans can reduce processing times and reduce the paperwork you face. A delivery plan can replace many discrete orders or contract release orders. In my company, we use delivery plans for almost every purchase, as we simply set up a contract for a component from a particular supplier and then the system automatically schedules your deliveries for you based on your needs and settings in material tribes.

Appointments can still be used, even if you only want to order a few times in a given year, as we do this for some of our bulk products, for which we have very large minimum order quantities that do not have much consumption. If you use delivery plans with release documentation, delivery schedule positions are not transmitted directly to the supplier….
