The objective of framework agreements is usually to set an upper limit or a total volume (i.e. a target value). In the case of quantity contracts, this is very specifically related to individual materials and therefore often to a material number (field: EKPO_MATNR), because here the number of parts or units plays an important role (even though. B there are other possibilities for an unknown material or consumable, which I will not discuss here). For this reason, the target value can be found here at the level of the respective contract item, as the target quantity (field: EKPO_KTMNG) multiplied by the price of the respective material gives the target value (field: EKPO_ZWERT) of the individual item. In the case of value contracts, the quantity of the item is often secondary, as the total value of the order counts. For example, a “Facility Management” value contract in the amount of €1,000,000 can be concluded with a service provider. This includes the building`s three cleaning points, necessary repairs and disposal. Here, individual quantities can be allocated much less concretely, and a construction of global value makes more sense. Another example would be office supplies (pens, post-it notepads), which are too “singular” at the level of each room to be specified in a framework agreement. Framework agreements play an important role in almost all business processes. Customers and sellers agree on the goods to be delivered under certain conditions and within a certain period.

Framework agreements optimize business processes for both partners in a business relationship. An scheduling agreement is a framework agreement between you and a customer that is valid for a certain period of time. The planning agreement contains fixed delivery dates and quantities. These dates appear in the scheduling agreements` schedule lines. As soon as the planning agreement is due for delivery, you can create the delivery as usual or via a list of delivery due dates. A contract is a framework agreement between you and your client that is valid for a certain period of time. The contract does not contain any planned items, delivery quantities or delivery dates. The same functions are available in contracts as in purchase orders. You can also agree on special price agreements. The customer executes the contract with individual approvals.

Schedule lines are created in the release order when the order is placed. The release order is then treated like any standard work. Any special agreement on prices will be copied from the contract. This is because planning agreements require the assembly of the planning line.
