UNIT 1: PROCUREMENT FOR A DISTRIBUTION CENTER, 10 hours

This process is used to introduce the R/3 Procurement processes. As well this process specifically
deals with the procurement from an external Vendor who will deliver products to our Distribution
Center. This process starts with determining which Vendor we will purchase our product from,
and ends with verifying that the Vendors invoice is correct. There are a lot of details in this
process that are not required.

UNIT 2: STORE PROCUREMENT VIA A DISTRIBUTION CENTER, 8 hours

This process is based on the regular replenishment for individual stores, which are grouped
together and sent to an external Vendor. The Vendor sends the products to our Distribution
Center, where they are forwarded to the stores using Merchandise Distribution techniques like
Cross-Docking. It is assumed that the stores do not have their own merchandise management
system, therefore all relevant functions are performed directly in the R/3 System.

UNIT 3: PROCUREMENT OF PERISHABLES, 6 hours

Process used for planning products with special requirements such as: very short lead times,
multiple deliveries per day, highly variable supply and demand, and dynamic pricing. This
process chain takes into account procurement for the distribution center AND the subsequent
transfer of the goods to the stores. Planning requirements for perishables is not restricted to
perishables. If can also be used for requirements planning of other articles. Perishables planning
is suitable for all articles that are ordered simultaneously from different vendors, such as fast
procurement and distribution (e.g. chart CDs, best-selling books).

UNIT 4: STORE PROCUREMENT VIA A THIRD PARTY, 3 hours

It is assumed that the stores have their own merchandise management systems (possibly
equivalent to R/3), in which a large number of retailing processes are modeled. In particular, it is
assumed that the stores determine their merchandise requirements themselves, but that the head
office is still responsible for placing the orders (using the R/3 system). Good introduction for
Retail Store Connection Course (IRT260).
