|How to enter the quota arrangement in purchasing module?
You establish the quota arrangement for a material over a certain period by entering quotas for the various sources of supply in a quota arrangement item.
Call up the transaction as follows:
Logistics -> Materials Management -> Purchasing -> Master data -> Quota arrangement -> Maintain (Transaction Code MEQ1, MEQ1/MEQ3 – Change/Display)
To set up a quota arrangement for the procurement of a material, proceed as follows:
1) Enter the material and plant number. Then press ENTER to display the overview screen for the quota arrangement periods.
2) Enter a validity period for the quota arrangement.
Enter the date until which the quota arrangement is valid. The start date is calculated by the system.
Press ENTER .
3) Select the quota arrangement and choose Goto -> Item overview to display the item overview screen of the quota arrangement.
Enter a quota arrangement item for each source of supply you want to include in the quota arrangement.
You must enter the following data.
A quota arrangement can provide for external procurement or in-house production. Enter f (the indicator for external procurement) in the P column.
Special procurement type
Enter k in the S column, for example, if a consignment arrangement for the material exists with the vendor.
Enter the number of the vendor from whom you want to procure, if the material is procured externally.
Procurement plant (supplying plant):
Enter the key of the procurement plant (supplying plant) in column PPl, if the procurement type provides for in-house production.
In the Quota column, enter the quota assigned to each item. The quota determines which portion of a total requirement over a period should be procured from the source in question.
For example, suppose a quota arrangement contains two sources of supply and you enter a quota of 1 for both. This means that each source is then allocated 50% of the total requirements for the material over the period in question.
4. Press ENTER.
The percentage distribution of the quotas is calculated and displayed automatically by the system.
5. Save the quota arrangement.
The system assigns a number to the quota arrangement item automatically.
After saving the document, Message saying Quota arrangement Maintained appears.
