Can scales be used in a standard purchase order?
You can determine a price of 150 in an info record for an order quantity between
1 and 100 and a price of 140 for an order quantity between 101 and 500. If the
order quantity is 205, the price will be 140. scales cannot be used directly in the purchase order but can be entered in the order from various master data such as the purchasing info record, the quota system.

With regard to the framework contract:
1. You can create a central (cross-site) contract where you can maintain different
price conditions for each site.
2. You must create the call order with reference to the contract.
3. No detailed deadline can be made in the call order.
4. No call documentation is created.
5. Only conditions with a validity period can be created.
6. Post types ‘M’ and ‘W’ can be used.

Regarding the delivery program:
1. The plant must be entered in the delivery schedule.
2. We don’t have to create any other purchasing documents except the schedule
lines via transaction ME38 or running the MRP (with the appropriate parameters
of the source of supply).
3. Position deadlines are created subject to your specific need.
4. Allows you to create both a release schedule with and without release
documentation (subject to document type LP or LPA) with the selection of either

9. What are Lots? How do I search for lots?

A batch is a subdivision of your stock of items with the same characteristics.
For example :
– the food industry uses batches to indicate the day of production.
– the paint industry uses batches based on the date of production and the ingredients
used. It’s very difficult to reproduce exactly the same color in the same way at two
different times.
– ores can be divided into lots according to their mineral content.
You can search for lots using the standard search tool (match-code, F4 key) based
on lot coding/naming convention or, if using lot classification, according to lot

11. what are the differences between the validation strategy with classification and that without classification? When are they used?

The release procedure with classification means that the purchase requisition can
be released both at item level and at head level. The validation procedure without
classification can also be used for requests purchase orders. It is only used for
post-level validation. All other external documents (Order, framework contract,
etc.) cannot be validated with a procedure with classification. The two procedures
are mutually exclusive (meaning, you must decide in favor of only one of them –
you cannot use both)
