Procurement SAP Best Practice Scope Items

The Bike Company implementation project is currently in the Realization phase, during which the project team tests the end-to-end processes.

You are now part of this team. In case you are not familiar with the detailed structures of the different areas (such as Financial Accounting, Purchasing, or Production), a brief introduction is provided before the individual business process steps in each unit.

The selected scope items for each area were assigned to the business processes of the Bike Company by Ivan. This enables the project team to understand which summarized scope items are used to represent a core process within the Bike Company.

Based on best practice scope items, Ivan has created a summarized business process for the Bike Company’s procurement process. The following is a high-level overview of the steps in the procurement process that Ivan created.
