SAP S/4 HANA Enterprise Management- Sub contracting Process

Please find below we blinks for S/4HANA Enterprise Management Details.

Dear Experts,

This blog will be more useful to new consultants in S/4HANA EM -Streamlined Procurement & Sourcing. the process is same as the ECC subcontracting Process. but here the difference we are using FIORI UI instead of GUI Interface. I hope this will be more thrill and give happiness when working in FIORI. As subcontracting Process everybody knows and it is not a new topic..

Here i have mentioned Subcontracting vendor creation, subcon info record and BOM creation with respect to FG material. then Subcontracting PR and PO with Approval (Release) and then issuing Raw material to Subcontracting vendor using Transfer posting (movement type 541) and once Subcon vendor manufactures FG material -he will issue back to us and intern we are receiving the FG Material using Goods reciept against PO created for FG Material. (Movement TYpe 101). Finally Posting Invoice verification (Supplier Invoice). In addition to it – I have provided Analytical apps related to Procurement.

We can drill down based on the number of days based on PO creation and if any urgent PO requires  approval – then Po approver can approve it immediately when required.

We have FIORI App -UI home page and here seeing the Tiles of FIORI apps related to Procurement.

Option- 2 – User without login to each and every Individual PO -he/she can approve directly form FIORI Home page -Inbox part. it again depends on the user decision.

Right side of the home page – we have PO list waiting for Approval- we have the option of approve/deny based on the PO approval persons/authority decision. if they are ok with the PO then they can approve it else deny the PO.

user can view the list of the transactions he/she used recently in left side of the home page.using Edit option they can customize i mean arrange the FIORI apps tiles based on their requirement.
