About the Source List Determination

When we create info & Maintain Quotation, by quota we are determining the source.   Also in Vendor Evaluation, we are evaluationg vendor.   When we are creating PO,  from where the vendor will come from?  Is it from Quota or Vendor Evaluation?

You define source list requirements at plant level. If a source list requirement exists, you must maintain the source list for each material before you can order it.

The source list serves:

To define a source of supply as "fixed". Such sources count as preferred sources over a certain period of time. For example, the fixed vendor XXXX for material 100XX is ASA Company for the first quarter and BSB Co. for the second quarter of the year.

Select the plants for which you wish to specify a source list requirement

You use the source list to determine the valid source of supply at a certain point in time.
The source list contains all the sources of supply defined for a material and the periods during which procurement from these sources is possible
