In order to better manage suppliers and SOW types, you can organize and group them into appropriate types, called Classifications.

Classifications are used to organize SOW templates and the Suppliers that provide services. They allow organizations to align suppliers to specific SOW templates, so that when an SOW is created for, say, an IT project, SAP Fieldglass only lists suppliers who provide IT services.

A classification can be created to limit the suppliers that a statement of work will be sent to.

Choosing a classification is the first step in creating a statement of work. This selection determines the template that will be used as the basis of the SOW, as well as the suppliers that are available. Only the suppliers and SOW templates that are associated to the selected classification are available when creating the statement of work.

You can create classifications and assign them to suppliers and SOW types. This allows you to limit the suppliers available for selection on statements of work based on classification.

For example, if a Supplier specializes in IT, an IT classification can be created for that Supplier. Additional Classifications can be added or modified as they are identified.

Navigating the Classification Admin Object

Select the Classification admin object from the Configuration section of the admin menu to view a list of classifications associated to WorkingNet’s tenant.

Create a Classification

WorkingNet is looking to create a number of SOWs specifically for their Engineering group. Therefore, they need to create a Classification specific to that group that can be associated to Suppliers and SOW Templates accordingly.

As the SAP Fieldglass administrator for WorkingNet, you will need to create a specific Classification for that purpose.
