The main points to be taken into account in a framework agreement are: in value contracts, the quantity of items is often secondary, because the total value of the contract is important. For example, a “facility management” contract of 1,000,000 euros could be concluded with a supplier. This includes the three building cleaning, repair and disposal items. In this case, individual quantities can be attributed in a much less concrete way and an overall structure is more judicious. Another example would be office equipment (pens, post-it notebooks), too “singular” in individual articles to be punished in a framework agreement. The delivery plan is a long-term sales contract with the Kreditor, in which a creditor is required to provide equipment on pre-determined terms. Details of the delivery date and the amount communicated to the creditor in the form of the delivery plan. Now it`s becoming exciting (at least for data analysts): framework agreements such as quantity contracts, value contracts and delivery plans are not stored in their own tables, but also in the EKKO and EKPO tables. So don`t get confused by names or take them too literally. The update of the sharing document is based on the type of contract. The type of contract decides that the release is based on the target value or target amount of the contract.
Step 2 – Include the name of the creditor, the type of contract, the purchase organization, the buying group and the factory with the date of the contract. As a general rule, the objective of framework agreements is to set a ceiling or a total volume (i.e. a target value). For quantity contracts that are very specific to individual materials and therefore often related to a material number (field: EKPO_MATNR), because the number of parts or the number of parts play an important role here (although there are other possibilities. B for an unknown material or consumables that I will not study here). This is why the target value here is at the level of the respective contract position, since the target quantity (field: EKPO_KTMNG) multiplied by the price of the material in question gives the reference value (field: EKPO_ZWERT) of each item.
