As a general rule, the objective of framework agreements is to set a ceiling or a total volume (i.e. a target value). For quantity contracts that are very specific to individual materials and therefore often related to a material number (field: EKPO_MATNR), because the number of parts or the number of parts play an important role here (although there are other possibilities. B for an unknown material or consumables that I will not study here). This is why the target value here is at the level of the respective contract position, since the target quantity (field: EKPO_KTMNG) multiplied by the price of the material in question gives the reference value (field: EKPO_ZWERT) of each item. A framework contract is a long-term sales contract with a creditor that contains terms and conditions for the equipment to be provided by the creditor. Step 2 – Include the delivery plan number. The above voucher categories are assigned as attributes to each purchase proof in the EKKO head data table (field: EKKO_BSTYP). This means that the document category allows us to distinguish delivery plans from other contracts.

But how do you distinguish value contracts from volume contracts? This is where the storm table described above comes in: in the standard, the type of contract “MK” is for volume contracts and “WK” for value contracts. However, both types of documents have the same category of “K” document. While document categories are primarily used for categorization, document types are often used to customize, i.e. attributes are assigned to document types, which are then used to organize the process/control process in a system. You can also be in the EKKO table, the field name is EKKO_BSART. Data model — commands and framework agreements Now that we have developed framework agreements where framework agreements are considered data — that is, in tables where you really think the “standard” orders — and how to identify them — by document type and by document type — let`s look at some aspects of the process. The framework agreement is a long-term sales contract between Kreditor and Debitor. The structure agreement is of two types: the most important points to respect in a framework agreement are the following In this blog, I give you an overview of the framework agreements in SAP® in the purchase module. In addition to the design of the concept itself, I give you an overview of its assignment from the point of view of data analysis, that is, SAP® tables and field levels. By clicking on the hat icon (which recalls the head data -?) you get to where the target value of the contract is visible (in this case, of course, the sum of the two elements). I will now take a closer look at the target values for articles and heads in framework agreements.

Supplier selection is an important process in the procurement cycle. Creditors can be selected based on the bidding process. After pre-selecting a creditor, an organization enters into an agreement with the latter to provide certain items subject to certain conditions. When an agreement is reached, a formal contract is usually signed with the Kreditor. A framework agreement is therefore a long-term purchase agreement with a creditor. A delivery plan is a long-term framework agreement between the seller and the customer on pre-defined equipment or service obtained on pre-defined dates over a period of time.
