SAP FIORI Applications for Supplier Compliance in the Value Chain

Associated SAP Fiori Applications

The apps associated with the Supplier Compliance in the Value Chain (5OJ) app:

  • Manage Basic Compliance Data - Raw Materials (F3024)
  • Supplier Compliance for Raw Material (F3040)
  • Manage Purchase Orders (F0842A)
  • Process Requests from Logistics (F3342)

Manage Basic Compliance Data - Raw Materials (F3024)

With the Manage Basic Compliance Data - Raw Materials (F3024) app, you get an overview list of raw materials with their compliance data. From this app, you can also create the compliance view of a raw material based on R&D data. Your compliance primary data for a new raw material can be created consistently with the supplier listings and the market requirements. If an identical raw material exists, the compliance primary data is reused. As the result, the regulation experts are able to continue with their work to assess the compliance of the raw material with regulations concerning marketability, safety data sheet management, or dangerous goods management.

Key Features

You can use this app to:

  • Organize your daily work on raw materials by using filters and creating your own views.

  • Search for raw materials using their internal name, material number, or material description.

  • Create raw materials.

  • Choose a raw material in the list to work on the basic compliance data or the assessment.

Supplier Compliance for Raw Material (F3040)

With the Supplier Compliance for Raw Material (F3040) app, you can evaluate a supplier raw material based on requested and provided compliance data. The compliance requirements are copied from the raw material for evaluation.

If the supplier is missing some required data and more data is expected or must be requested, the supplier status for raw material is In Process. Once this data is complete or the supplier will not provide more data, the compliance data status is set to Done, and you can approve or block the supplier for your purchasing department.

If supplier data that calculates a different compliance status for the raw material is entered, a task to assess the new status of the raw material is created as an in-progress version of a compliance assessment.

Key Features

You can use this app to:

  • Check the current compliance data status of a supplier of a raw material.

  • Set the compliance data status to Requested if a request for more data was sent out.

  • Set the compliance data status to Done to indicate that supplier compliance can be evaluated.

  • Check the compliance assessments of the raw material.

  • Enter supplier-provided data and add further compliance requirements if necessary.

  • Approve or block a supplier raw material for purchasing.

  • Set the status to Outdated to indicate that the supplier is no longer used for the raw material.

  • Change the unit that is responsible for a supplier of a raw material.

  • Add or edit the external material name and external material number as identifiers of a supplier.

  • Add attachments and URLs to a supplier, and delete these items.

Manage Purchase Orders (F0842A)

With the Manage Purchase Orders (F0842A) app, you can create, manage, and search purchase orders to ensure that you get the ordered items on time, at the correct location, and in the required quantity.

As a purchaser, you can manually order materials as well as services.

The list of purchase orders that is displayed is based on the header level of the Purchase Order (PO), so the information shown relates to the entire PO.

On the overview, you can immediately see the number of overdue items for each PO.

The item categories: Standard, Consignment, Subcontracting, Third-party, and Limit (both for unplanned materials and for unplanned services), are supported.

Key Features

The following is a list of key features:

  • Create new purchase orders from scratch.

  • Search for purchase orders and sort, filter and group the list, for example, by supplier, plant, or purchase order date.

  • Save your personal filter criteria as a variant.

  • Jump into the details of a specific purchase order to review it.

  • Edit an existing purchase order. Changes you can make to an existing purchase order depend on the status. For more information, please see the section Editing an Existing Purchase Order in this document.

  • Add purchase order items from document.

    You can create purchase order items with reference to one of the following purchasing documents that already exist:

    • A purchase order item

    • An info record

    • A purchase contract item

  • Create several schedule lines.

  • Assign a purchase order item to a single account or to several accounts. You can distribute costs on a percentage basis.

  • Display purchase order commitments.

Process Requests from Logistics (F3342)

With the Process Requests from Logistics (F3342) app, you can process compliance requests from the logistics department.

A request may come from a sales document, a manual request created in the Compliance Information app, or the product master.

In processing the request, you verify in which countries and regions each product may be sold and produced based on the existing market assessment. You also verify requests for compliance purposes to be assigned to the product.

If you receive a request for a new product, you can assign an unpackaged product as the compliance view of the material. Once you have verified the information, you can hand the request over to your colleagues for assessment or carry out the assessment yourself. You can also choose to reject the request.

Key Features

The key features of the the Process Requests from Logistics (F3342) app include:

  • Verify existing and requested countries and regions in which the product may be sold or produced.

  • Add new countries and regions and delete the ones you've added.

  • View the market assessment of the assigned countries/regions to help with verification.

  • Verify the existing and requested compliance purposes that apply to the product.

  • Add new compliance purposes and delete the purposes you've added.

  • Assign an existing unpackaged product as the compliance view of a new product.

  • Create a new unpackaged or packaged product as the compliance view of a new product.

  • Save the request to hand it over to your compliance colleagues for assessment.

  • Choose to assess the request yourself immediately after saving it.

  • Define the compliance relevance of materials when it is undefined.

  • Reject the request.
