Why do we need the Supply Chain Monitor?

The Order Confirmation provides the Buyer with an indication of what to expect and when. This is particularly important for materials that are relevant for material requirements planning (MRP) in the ERP because data in the Order Confirmation impacts the planning for that material.

If the Supplier Confirms the Purchase Order outside the agreed tolerance for quantity, price, or delivery date, an Order Confirmation Deviation Approval feature enables the Buyer to review the confirmation deviation and decide whether to approve or reject the Order Confirmation.
