SAP MM - Quota Arrangement
A particular material can be procured from different vendors depending upon the requirement. So, total requirement of a material is distributed to different vendor’s i.e. quota is assigned to each source of supply. This is known as quota arrangement. The key points about quota arrangement are as follows:
Quota arrangement divides the total requirement of material among certain sources of supply i.e. vendors and then assigns quota to each source.
This particular quota specifies the portion of material that is to be procured from assigned vendor or source.
Quota rating is used to determine the amount of material that is to be assigned to particular source or vendor. The source with lowest quota rating represents the valid source.
Quota rating can be calculated by following formula:
Quota rating = (Quota Allocated Quantity + Quota Base Quantity)/Quota
Where Quota Allocated Quantity is total quantity from all orders that is procured from a particular source. Quota Base Quantity is quantity from new source of supply. Quota is total requirement of material that is given to a particular source of supply.
The mandatory setting before creating quota is info record and source list should be maintained for the particular material.
