Enhancements to Third-Party Processing

Dear Customer,

Enhancements to third-party delivery and individual procurement are now available:


SAP has provided the possibility to implement a BAdI to customize the confirmed delivery date for third-party goods (example: TAS/TAB).


SAP has provided the ability for a delivery block to prevent the purchase of third-party goods (example: TAS/TAB).


SAP has provided a solution that – in third-party delivery (example: TAS) and individual procurement (example: TAB) scenarios for a sales order – allows the possibility for the update of schedule line data of the sales order item to happen only from a confirmed purchase order item. Previously, the system updated the delivery date of a sales order item with the delivery date in the purchase order (PO), even if the vendor had not confirmed the PO.

For more details, refer to these PowerPoint slides.

Also, see the Customer Influence site:
