Application steps:
1) Inventory people assign required item at instance level by creating an item and entering attributes like
description, price, quantity required and date by when it Is required. An item with an Item ID is created and
stored in intermediate table
2) This item information is needed by the PO department for their application and hence they run a planning
program which loads the data from the intermediate table created by inventory department to the purchase
department for their records. Requisition ID is assigned against each item created
3) Now RFQ needs to be created for requisition ID by PO department that will be submitted to multiple
suppliers so they can submit quotations. Hence in RFQ Tab, details are entered with name of suppliers,
expected price and quantity (you can even copy requisition) and RFQ number will be assigned against each
requisition ID created. When RFQ report is run, in the output the list of all RFQs will be generated and this list
can be sent to suppliers as a fax or email as there is no direct link between our and suppliers systems
4) Now suppliers will send their quotations and those will be entered in quotations tab by assigning attributes
like exact price and discount details under price breaks tab and a quotation number will be created against
RFQ number (there will be multiple quotation numbers for same RFQ number as there are multiple quotations
sent by suppliers)
5) In order to select best quotation, under quote analysis tab you can enter requisition number and analyze all
quotations as per requirement and approve the best one (Please note all the interlinked data and information
against each item iD/requisition ID/RFQ number/quotation number is stored in backend tables (Toad for oracle)
and you can use select query with table and column criteria to check data
6) After approving quotation you can create purchase order to send officially to supplier by clicking Purchase
order tab. After assigning attributes like currency rate, shipping location and other details and clicking on
approve PO number will be generated.
7) Quotations summary and PO summary tabs give list of approved items which you can view
