You can certainly do that.
Just use the same part number everywhere including the purchase orders for both suppliers.
And you can use the approved supplier list screen to limit purchases to certain vendors.
Thanks for reply,
Right now the the system is set up to assign the item to only 1 vendor at 1 price and the planners are overriding the system when we want to allocate orders to another vendor.
You're saying there's a way to designate a ratio between multiple vendors and have MRP automatically allocate orders (at a predetermined ratio)? If so, how do i do this.
Thanks again fro your input. Much appreciated.
Define a sourcing rule first.
In the sourcing rule,
enter the % split between the 2 suppliers.
Then assign the sourcing rule to an assignment set.
Then assign the assignment set to the mrp/ascp plan.
Hope this answers your question.
Thanks again for your help. I'll give it a go.
Where would I go to set different pricing for the item? We've negotiated different pricing for the same item number at different vendors? Right now the solution addresses only the allocation of product.
With regards to the % split; let's say I set the split to 50/50. The Planners override mrp and create a PO for the full 100pcs to 1 vendor and not the system suggested 50pcs to vendor A and 50pcs to vendor B.
Will the system be able to figure out that the allocation has been ignored and re-adjust? Will MRPto buy 100pcs at vendor B and 0pcs at vendor A?
Will the system only look forward and say "Whatever the next requirement is, I'm splitting the order 50/50 between the 2 vendors"?
There are 2 options to price an item.
You can use advance pricing module to price the PO and Requisition for a specific item, supplier and site combination.
For this you have to create a CPA in oracle purchasing for both the supplier and site and have to create 2 Price list in advance pricing module.
There are few profile options which you have to enable to trigger pricing engine to pick the price from price list defined in Advance pricing.
Secondly you can define the BPA in oracle purchasing and assign the BPA to the Approved supplier list. based on the sorucing rule nad ASL entry oracle purchasing will pick the price on the req and PO.
Hope this will help you
I want to know something on the second method.
If you dont mind please let me know whether those prices will be picked up to the PR and PO automatically or we need to select them through catalogue.
Thanks in Advance.
