Purchase Requisition (PR) Release Strategy – Basic Concept

Featured

Purchase Requisition (PR) is an internal purchasing document in SAP R/3. It is used to give notification to responsible department (purchasing/procurement) of requirements of materials and/or external services and keep track of such requirements. PR must contain information about quantity of a material or a service and the required date.

 

It can be created directly (manually, through ME51N T-code) by a person or indirectly by another SAP component (such as material requirement planning/MRP, maintenance order of Plan Maintenance/PM module, production order of Production Planning/PP module).

 

PR then can be processed to be an external purchasing document (such as Purchase Order/PO) or internal purchasing document (such as Stock Transport Order/STO).

 

In SAP R/3, PR can be processed directly to be PO/STO or must be approved/released before it can be processed to be PO/STO.
