Now that we have discovered where the framework agreements are kept as data — in tables where you actually suspect standard commands — and how to identify them — by document category and document type — let`s look at some aspects of the process. Now it`s becoming exciting (at least for data analysts): framework agreements such as quantity contracts, value contracts and delivery plans are not stored in their own tables, but also in the EKKO and EKPO tables. So don`t get confused by names or take them too literally. You can clearly display the category (K or L) and the type of document associated (LP, WK, MK). Our system includes 154 agreements. Contracts are often superior in nature. This may be the case with SAP® because the buying organization is essential (and the work that may be related to the purchase organization). The purchase organization is shown in the EKKO table for each agreement (field: EKKO_EKORG). However, in high-demand structures, large contracts (for example.
B the purchase of laptops throughout the company) are negotiated centrally and can then be used in a decentralized manner. In this case, it is possible to cooperate with near-superior purchasing organizations, which are attached to decentralized purchasing organizations as a reference purchasing organization. They can then use and consult framework agreements established under the reference purchasing agency. From the data analyst`s perspective, you will find in table T024Z the allocation of purchasing organizations (field: T024Z_EKORG) to possible business reference organizations (field: T024Z_EKORZ). Futures agreements, on the other hand, are based more on quantities and, in addition, on concrete quantities of delivery on certain delivery dates (we are talking about dates). Quite simply, these are more restrictive quantitative contracts – but in the analysis of the data in SAP® they appear separately with their own category of supporting documents in relation to volume or value contracts. But later. It`s a little more technical, but here, for the sake of completeness, a screenshot of the document type table with customizing settings in SAP® if they are needed for data analysis purposes. This table contains circles of numbers for the corresponding types of proofs, for example.
B field selection parameters, etc.: agreements are now the basis of a structured long-term supply. But what about individual buying on the concrete basis of an agreement? We are also talking about call-offs.
