Create a Demand
Every demand is distinguished with a unique identifier. Based on the selected project or work package, demand start date, demand end date and plant for service demand and demand date and plant is automatically updated for material demand from the assigned work package. A demand ID is generated which is unique to a work package ID.
To define a demand in Created state, only the work package, Demand ID, and Demand Type are mandatory. This enables creation of demands early in the project planning phase.
You can select the demand type as Service or Service with Limit for demand category Services and Non-Stock Material or Non-Stock Material with Limit for demand category Materials.
You can select the limit value in currency using the fields Expected Value and Overall Limit for Service with Limit or Non-Stock Material with Limit demand types.
The expected value cannot be higher than overall limit.
Additional fields like planned delivery time and other procurement related information become mandatory when you want to request a demand or trigger procurement. When a material number is entered, certain values under Procurement section are auto populated like valuation price, planned delivery time (in days).
Copy a Demand
You can create a new demand by copying an existing demand. When you copy an existing demand, the ID of the new demand is automatically generated by the system. It derives the following values from the existing demand: project or work package details, plant, material, material group. However, the follow-on documents (purchase requisition) are not copied. You can edit the details based on your requirements and set the demand status accordingly.
Demand start date and demand end dates are populated based on the assigned project or work package dates.
Edit a Demand
You can edit a demand in Created status from the corresponding object page. Change demand date and quantity based on the requirements of the project even after a demand is in Requested status. View key details of the project and work package from the demand object page. Check for ongoing purchases if you want to close a demand.
Close a Demand
You can close one or multiple demands which are in Created or Requested status from the demand list page.
Delete a Demand
You can delete one or multiple demands which are in Created status from the demand list page.
