What is a contract and appointment? What are the differences between the two? The customer will provide you with 4-10 weekly buckets (usually on a Monday) with expected future quantities. Also send you 1-2 weeks of individual FIRM shipping data, which is entered on the JIT. It comes down to the fact that the customer doesn`t know exactly what they need next week, but they don`t want to surprise you with a large order quantity where your delivery times are more than 5 days. The projected quantities they shipped last week should take this into account. We can use the appointment as a delivery note to the supplier. and what is the purpose of the revision level on the Material Data tab page? An appointment contains details about a planning agreement, but a contract only contains information about quantity and price, not details about specific delivery dates. Planning Agreement – In the planning agreement, we can maintain the detailed planning lines. This explains the material details, the quantity of material required, the date of the request that we can not mention in the contracts. Explain what the .air-lock file is? What is the difference between .sandbox.pset and .project.pset and the need for .project-start.ksh and .project-end.ksh The planning agreement is also an agreement with customers, but contains predefined delivery dates (calendar lines) and quantities. We need to create an order in SAP, but we can`t decide whether we should opt for CONTRACTS, PLANNING AGREEMENTS, or a standard purchase order.

A manual contract is concluded with a fixed value and in this contract the equipment provided is used by various projects. Now, a large part of each project is used. The quantity is therefore not predefined. Also, our purchasing manager doesn`t want us to create multiple orders with different WBS. I do not have any details on the contracts and the SA. So confused. Can you please help me? I`m new to SAP. Contract – The contract is established with the supplier for a certain period of validity, the material details, the total quantity required or the total value of the material from which it is purchased? Seller.

The final rate with the seller and other applicable conditions will be retained in the contract. You do not need to create multiple orders in the delivery contract, as soon as the deadline is reached, the materials are automatically delivered and invoiced. (1) – Schedule agreements allow you to have 2 different sets of schedules (VBEP-ABART). As a standard SAP, you need to have two sets of tabs – planning lines. One prognosis and the other JIT. Forecast forwards planning lines to planning (see MD04) and JIT transfers them to the shipping industry (VL10). They can be the same or different. As a rule, these are used for supplier customers (i.e.

automotive). Appointments are very pleasant when the customer sends EDI data (830s = forecast or 862s = JITs). Apart from that, they can really cause problems in terms of daily maintenance, lack of requirements, corrections in the amount of sperm, treatment at the end of the year, etc. Due to the short narration, this is an agreement on the quantities and dates of the calendar. (2) Cumulative quantities shall be tracked and affect how the schedule agreement reflects forecasting and shipping requirements. These quantities are sometimes requested by the customer on the ASNs. Cumulative quantities are reset at the end of the year, unless you have a customer calendar or have changed standard SAP user outputs so that they are not reset. The planning agreement is a long-term purchase agreement with the supplier in which a supplier is required to deliver materials on specified terms. Information on the delivery date and quantity communicated to the supplier in the form of the planning agreement. For more information on framework agreements, see the following link. The delivery of the total quantity of material specified in an scheduling agreement line is distributed in a scheduling agreement over a specific period of time, which consists of lines that display individual quantities with their corresponding scheduled delivery dates. The contract is the agreement concluded between the Customer and the Company on the basis of the material, quantity and price over a certain period of time.

In principle, both are framework agreements, but if we opt for a contract, it means that we occasionally buy our quantities from the seller. Here the quantity may vary, but the contract has a validity period and a condition. In the planning agreement, we buy our quantity regularly, that is, on the basis of the period (day, week). 2. Value Contracts – Use this type of contract if you do not want the total value of all release orders placed against the contract to exceed a certain predefined value. Contracts and SAs have many similar characteristics. Deciding which one to use is less important than knowing when to use a framework agreement versus a regular order. A contract offers the advantage of familiarity and ease of use because the recovery control screens are no different from those of a normal order. However, the SA has the decisive advantage of integrating with the MRP, which eliminates the administrative burden of managing an intermediate requirements document (e.B. planned order or PR) as part of a contract.

Contract The contract is a draft contract and does not contain any delivery date for the material. The contract consists of two types: it can be used to facilitate the planning business and guarantees the fixed price agreement for the customer. Both the contract and the appointment are framework agreements. In the contract 2 types of contracts, there are. Value and quantity contract, in the value contract you agree with the customer of a certain value. While in the quantity contract you agree with the quantity e.B. 20000 pieces / quantity. Contact does not have the delivery time of the goods that is given to it by the call order. While with the delivery schedule we agree with the customer to deliver the goods at the specified time, e.B. 7.8.2012 20000 pieces are handed over to the customer.

The main difference between the contract and the planning agreement is that the volume of documents generated in the contract would be higher because whenever you need to create an order only in relation to the contract, which takes time, while the planning agreement can be integrated into mruption, so that it automatically creates planning agreements during MRP execution, if there is a request….
