Material & Service Procurement in SAP S/4HANA: Complete End User Guide

This 187 pages PDF document provides an overview of the Material Procurement (Stock) and Service Procurement process in S4H MM (SAP) and SRM. The process begins with the creation of a Material Requirements Plan (MRP), which is a forecast of future demand for materials. Based on the MRP, a Purchase Requisition is created, which is a request to purchase materials. The Purchase Requisition is then sent to a vendor, who may respond with a quote. If the quote is accepted, a Purchase Order is created. The Purchase Order is then sent to the vendor, who ships the materials to the buyer. Once the materials arrive, they are inspected and accepted. The buyer then creates an invoice, which is sent to the vendor. The vendor pays the invoice, and the transaction is complete.
