    Hi Guys,

    we, on the costumer Side, want to implement a Vendor Managed Inventory System in Standard SAP. Sending messages via EDI. ( Stock Levels)

    We still want to have a view about our Stock Levels, not fully expecting the vendor to deliver at the beginning, because of the current supply chain problems.

    Are there any Parameters we can set or we need to set to get the vmi System work?
    What settings I have to make to get things work?

    Is it possible to get alerts when reaching different stock levels e.g. Max/Min stock?

    Thanks for Helping

    Could you clarify which SAP software you are using? SAP APO or SAP S/4HANA for Retail?

    Are there any Parameters we can set or we need to set to get the vmi System work?

    As a customer in the VMI scenario, you will be responsible for:

    1. Transferring stock and sales data to your vendor via EDI (you will need to set up IDocs and connectivity with the vendor’s ERP system)
    2. Creating purchase orders for order acknowledgments received by EDI from the vendor
    3. (Optionally) you might also send information about the purchase order numbers in your SAP system to the vendor, so that they can maintain them as reference in their sales orders

    So, you will need to complete quite a few configuration activities in these 3 areas.

    Is it possible to get alerts when reaching different stock levels e.g. Max/Min stock?

    If you are using SAP S/4HANA, then you should be able to set up inventory alerts using the ‘Situation Handling’ functionality.

    We are already working with IDocs for e.g. ORDERS, so we just need IDocs for the message type INVRPT? Or is it better to setup a PROACT Control Profile?

    2. Creating purchase orders for order acknowledgments received by EDI from the vendor

    We are currently working with frame purchase orders. Is it possible to work with them in VMI Process?

    Thank You
