Requisition Order Flow

This document explains the requisition order flow.

It is recommended that you use requisition orders whenever something does not follow the normal flow of production within purchasing, manufacturing or delivery to the customer.

In 'Stock Transaction Type. Open Standard' (CRS205) specify which standard transaction type should be used for the requisition order flow.

The stock transaction types for requisitions orders are:

40 = Positive stock transaction. Put into stock.

41 = Negative stock transaction. Take out from stock.

In 'Req/Distr Order Type. Open' (CRS200) specify the flow for the requisition order based on a selected stock transaction type above.

Outcome

A requisition order results when you take out from stock or put into a stock transaction.

The following are uses of this process:

All physical stock transactions are stored in the MITTRA table. The requisition order is using the MGHEAD table for the order head and the MGLINE table for the order lines.

Before you start

The conditions in Basic Settings for Requisition and Distribution Order must be fulfilled.

Workflow for Requisition Order-Take Out from Stock (transaction type 41)

  1. Create Order Head and Lines

    An order head is created in 'Req/Distr Order. Open' (MMS100).

    Order lines are created in 'Req/Distr Order. Open Lines' (MMS101). The B panel has several options, for example: 11= Allocate, 12 = Display change log, 21 = Available check, 44 = Delivery line.

    If you click twice in the 'Item number' field, 'Item Toolbox. Open' (MMS200) will start.

    If you click in the 'Transaction Quantity' field, Balance Identity. Open Toolbox' (MWS060) will start. Your on-hand balance is displayed here.

    A quick entry, which enables you to enter all necessary data on only one panel, is done in the (MMS100/N) panel. The N panel must be selected as the opening panel.

  2. Allocate

    Allocation can be more or less automatically or manually performed. Allocation can be done and set up in several ways. See Allocation and Cross-Docking Concepts .

  3. Pre-Allocate

    If there is a shortage in stock and you can not allocate the total order quantity, then you can perform a pre-allocation. This means that you pre-allocate to an acquisition order, which includes the same item numbers as your requisition order (demand order). See Allocation and Cross-Docking Concepts.

  4. Dispatch

    The dispatch handling can be more or less automatically or manually performed. Dispatch can be done and set up in several ways. See Basic Settings for Dispatch Handling.

Workflow for Requisition Order—Put Into Stock (transaction type 40)

  1. Create Order Head and Lines

    An order head is created in 'Req/Distr Order. Open' (MMS100).

    Order lines are created in 'Req/Distr Order. Open Lines' (MMS101).

    A quick entry, which enables you to enter all necessary data on only one panel, is done in the (MMS100/N) panel. The N panel must be selected as the opening panel.

  2. Automatic Goods Receiving and Put Away

    If the order type (CRS200) has a dispatch policy (MWS010) connected with Auto level = 5, then the transaction is completed now. Put away on the location is done automatically, and the order status is 99=Transaction completed.

  3. Manual Goods Receiving and Put Away

    If the Auto level=3, then you must perform the put away on the location manually as described below.

    The next step is to goods receive the requisition order. If you know the order number or the delivery number, use 'Goods Receipt DO/RO. Report' (MWS440).

    If you want to display a list and make a search for the order or delivery number, use 'Goods Receiving DO/RO. Open Toolbox' (MWS442).

    Put away on a location is done in 'Goods Receiving DO/RO. Report Details' (MWS445).

  4. Split Goods and Search for a Location

    Split and put away the quantities on several locations and search after a suitable location in 'Location. Select' (MMS160).

    See also Goods Receiving DO/RO Using Different Methods.

  5. Put Away on a Cross Dock Location

    If there is a shortage in stock and the requisition order should be put away on a cross-dock location and allocated to a demand order, then you will automatically display 'Cross-Dock Selection Results. Open' (MWS160), when you perform goods receiving.

    This is described in the Allocation and Cross-Docking Concepts.
