VENDOR EVALUATION

The Vendor Evaluation component supports you in optimizing your procurement processes in the case of both materials and services In the SAP System, Vendor Evaluation is completely integrated into the MM Purchasing Component within Materials Management. This means that information such as delivery dates, Prices and quantities can be taken from purchase orders. Vendor Evaluation also uses data from the Quality Management component, such as the results of incoming inspections or quality audits. Vendor Evaluation accesses basic Materials Management data, Inventory Management data (such as goods receipts), and data from the Logistics Information System (LIS). The LIS data is stored in the information structure S013.

CUSTOMIZING
Before you can work with the Vendor Evaluation component, the system settings must be maintained. MENU PATH FOR CUSTOMIZING VENDOR EVALUATION: SPRO -> IMG -> MATERIALS MANAGEMENT -> PURCHASING -> VENDOR EVALUATION DEFINE WEIGHTING KEYS DEFINE CRITERIA DEFINE SCOPE OF LIST MAINTAIN PURCHASING ORGANIZATION DATA

DEFINE WEIGHTING KEYS In this step, you define the weighting keys for the main criteria of vendor evaluation. 01 and 02 are defined in the standard system. You combine the following weighting standard main criteria:

Weighting keys shares for the 1

ERP INFO SOLUTIONS PVT LTD | VENDOR EVALUATION

Main criterion Price Quality Delivery Gen. service/support Ext. service provision

Key 01 1 1 1 1 1

Key 02 5 5 2 1 2

Activities Enter the weighting keys and a short text describing the keys. Note You define the weighting shares (weighting factors) for each purchasing organization in the work step Define Purchasing Organization Data for Vendor Evaluation. Execute weighting keys

Click on

and then on

come back to the initial screen of SPRO

DEFINE CRITERIA In this step, you define the criteria by which the system computes scores for vendors and specify whether the scores for the sub criteria are computed manually, semi-automatically, or automatically. Hinweis You can also store your own methods of computation for the scores for sub criteria in the form of user exits. The enhancement MM06L001 is available for this purpose. The SAP standard system includes the following evaluation criteria:

Price
o

2 Price level

ERP INFO SOLUTIONS PVT LTD | VENDOR EVALUATION

Price history

Quality
o o o

GR lots Complaints level Quality audit

Delivery
o o o

On-time delivery performance Quantity reliability Compliance with shipping instructions

General service/support Externally performed service/work


o o

Quality of service provision Timeliness of service provision

You can change the descriptions of these criteria. Recommendation: You can define up to 99 main criteria. Make sure you limit the main criteria to the most important ones, so that lists do not become too crowded. We recommend a maximum of eight main criteria. Activities 1. Enter all further criteria you need and maintain a description/name (this appears on screens and in dialog boxes) and a short text (appears as column heading in ranking lists). 2. Specify the sub criteria for each main criterion via Go to -> Sub criteria. For each sub criterion, enter the scoring method. If you have created a user exit for the sub criterion, enter it. Note For each purchasing organization you then specify whether the main and sub criteria can be maintained manually. You also determine the weighting of the sub criteria.

Execute define criteria

And as said earlier for every main criteria there will be sub criterions. So in order to check whether sub criterias are maintained for each main criteria just select the criteria and click on sub criteria the system pop ups the sub criterias that were maintained in each main criterias as below.

In the same manner also check for the remaining 5 main criterias which are as follows: Quality:

ERP INFO SOLUTIONS PVT LTD | VENDOR EVALUATION

Delivery:

Services

Services 5

ERP INFO SOLUTIONS PVT LTD | VENDOR EVALUATION

Invoices

As shown above all these sub criterias are to be maintained and are mandatory if not so the system throws an error Purchasing organization data for XXXX is incomplete or not properly maintained DEFINE SCOPE OF LIST In this step, you can define various types of list, each representing different main criteria or the same main criteria in a different order. In the standard system, the scope-of-list parameters 'standard' and 'version 1' are supplied as an example:

The parameter Standard provides the user with a ranking list of vendors by overall score. The main criteria are arranged in the order "Price", "Quality", "Delivery", "General service/support and "Externally performed service/work". The parameter Version 1 yields a ranking list of vendors sorted according to the score for the main criterion "Price". Then follow the overall evaluation and the main criteria "General service/support", "Quality", "Delivery", and "Externally performed service/work". 6

Activities ERP INFO SOLUTIONS PVT LTD | VENDOR EVALUATION

1. Enter the scope-of-list parameters and their designations. 2. For each parameter, choose Go to -> ranking list content. 3. Define which main criteria are to be displayed and specify the order in which the main criteria are to be shown. 4. Specify the line for the overall evaluation with the entry '_'. Note You can also change the content of the scope-of-list parameters "Standard" and "Version1".

Execute define scope of list

There is nothing to do in this assignment as the above has been maintained in the standard system itself. MAINTAIN PURCHASING ORGANIZATION DATA In this step, you define individual Vendor Evaluation System settings for each purchasing organization. Activities: Maintain the following data: In the process, please note that all parameters must be maintained in order for the system to be able to compute scores. If, for example, you do not maintain any smoothing factors for the criteria "on-time delivery performance", "quantity reliability", and "compliance with shipping instructions", the system will not be able to compute the scores. Control parameters On the detail screen for the purchasing organization, define: 7

General parameters ERP INFO SOLUTIONS PVT LTD | VENDOR EVALUATION

o o

The best score that a vendor can achieve (applies to all sub criteria). The maximum number of days data may exist in the system and still be taken into account in the vendor evaluation (applies to all sub criteria). The calendar used for the computation of on-time delivery performance and adherence to the confirmation date. The form (layout set) used to generate the vendor evaluation sheet. If you make no entry, the standard form MELDRUCK is used.

Price level
o

Indicator showing whether or not the vendor is the only source of a material.

Complaints level
o

Percentage that indicates the maximum percentage of the total volume of business done with a certain vendor that the costs associated with complaints regarding materials supplied (and/or rejection thereof) may reach. If this percentage is exceeded, the vendor is awarded the lowest score.

Quality audit
o

Indicator showing whether the average score of all quality audits is to be taken, or whether the result of the most recent audit is to be used in computing scores.

On-time delivery performance


o o o

The delivery time variance that counts as 100%. The minimum delivery quantity. The indicator showing whether or not the minimum delivery percentage is adopted from the material master record.

Smoothing factors The smoothing factors for:


o o o

The delivery date variance and the quality and timeliness of an externally performed service. The quantity variance. Compliance with shipping instructions. ERP INFO SOLUTIONS PVT LTD | VENDOR EVALUATION 8

Note The parameters for the sub criterion "on-time delivery performance" are also applied to the sub criterion "quantity reliability". Evaluation criteria Specify which main criteria apply to the purchasing organization and whether these may be entered manually or changed after automatic determination. For each main criterion, define the weighting of the sub criteria and specify whether they may be maintained manually. Weighting Define the composition of the weighting keys that are valid for this purchasing organization. The weighting keys themselves are defined in the step Define Weighting Keys. Points scores for automatic criteria Here you define the scores for certain intervals of variances. Notes on transport You transport number range objects as follows: Choose Interval -> Transport in the accounting document Number Range screen. All intervals for the selected number range object are deleted in the target system first. After the import, only the intervals you export are present. The number statuses are imported with their values at the time of export. Dependent tables are not transported or converted.
