This video explains the concept of Scheduling Agreements in SAP Materials Management, focusing on how to set master data and execute the Scheduling Agreement. The key points discussed in the video are:

  1. Understanding Outline Agreement: An Outline Agreement is a long-term agreement between the purchasing department and a supplier for materials or services for a defined period. It includes Contracts and Scheduling Agreements. A Scheduling Agreement is useful for customers who operate repetitive manufacturing where the production consumes the same materials each month.
  2. Creating Scheduling Agreement: A Scheduling Agreement can be created manually or can be copied with reference to a Purchase Requisition, Quotation, and centrally agreed Contracts. The users need to enter details like the business partner, agreement type, and agreement number (if it’s an external number to be assigned).
  3. Entering Line Items: Each line item requires the target quantity to be entered, which is the quantity agreed upon by the purchasing department and the supplier.
  4. Maintaining Delivery Schedule: The delivery schedule for the material in the Scheduling Agreement can be maintained manually or can be created through Material Requirement Planning (MRP). For the latter, the Source List has to be maintained accordingly.
  5. Viewing Scheduling Agreements: Various reports are available to view Scheduling Agreements, such as ME3L (view by vendor) and ME3M (view by material).
  6. Goods Receipt for Scheduling Agreements: The goods receipt for Scheduling Agreements can be done through the MIGO transaction. The details from the delivery schedule lines on the Scheduling Agreement are copied to MIGO.
