How to limit total PO qty ?

Postby SAP lover on Tue Aug 17, 2004 5:15 am

Dear friends,

My scenario is that we want to control one material's total PO qty
with one vendor during a period. quota arrangement can calculate
but they don't limit PO qty. No error messages or even warning
message appears when PO total qty exceed qty in quota arrangement.

Anyone here can give a solution ?

U can see if some user exit is available. If u can get the PO qty field ...then u can control it.

Check out in transaction "OMDY - Error handling in the planning run". You can define the maximum number of PO's here.

Hi,

No error messages or even warning
message appears when PO total qty exceed qty in quota arrangement.

Did you actually look at the setting in the 'maximum quantity' field for the quota arrangement item?. This is where you can set it up to meet your specific requirement. Let me know how it goes.

Cheers,

Hello PPRaj,
I checked OMDY. it defines max PO numbers per day insted of PO qty.

However when I set up "1" for max PO number per day, system still

allow more PO created in one day.

What have you done in your testing scenario? I have actually done it here in our test environment and it worked satisfactorily. Besides, you can look at the SAP documentation to see how this field can be used.

Hello Ha Tran,

I think enough data was key in for quota arrangement. Unluckily
they don't function as limitation of PO qty. BTW, it's a 4.5 version.

Hi Guys,

I request you to set "Maximum Lot Size' in MRP 1 view of MM01/MM02.
Hope this should solve the problem.

Just one question, what transaction do you use to create your PO?
If it is just a manual PO creation via ME21N, then the user can enter as much as the quantity field takes.

Hi Svetja,

The control point is at the PR creation via MRP run where SAP will look at the setting in the quota arrangement to determine the allocation of requirement quantity to each and every vendor. Of course, PO quantity can not be changed as highly as wished by the purchaser as there is a limitation from the PR quantity.

Yes. A manual PO by Me21.
