E1: 43: Automatic PO Approval With Automatic Routing for Reapproval of Changes (Doc ID 2084830.1)

Last updated on JULY 06, 2016

Applies to:

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Procurement and Subcontract Management - Version 9.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

The client would like to request a Processing Option to be added to the PO Entry (P4310) Approvals Tab that would provide for Automatic Approval at the time of order creation, but would force Reapproval if the order is changed. In other words they want to designate that the approval route is ONLY used for reapproval and not for initial order entry.

For example, assume status 230 is Awaiting Approval Status and 280 is approved status. The client wants the order to get created at 220/280 (Approved) but when the same version is used for order changes, they want the order to go back to status 280/230 and go through reapproval.

The purpose of this processing option is to satisfy the business requirement for Purchase Orders generated from MRP Messages.

Since these purchase orders are automatically generated based upon demand and material availability, there is no reason for purchase approval at the time of purchase order creation.

However, purchase orders that are created by MRP, are later modified by MRP Messages (P3411) generated to update these orders. They want these changes to be routed through the approval route and not automatically approved.

In essence the client wants to be able to use one version of MRP Messages (P3411) with one version of PO Entry (P4310) instead of having to create one version of MRP Messages (P3411) for creating new purchase orders and another version for updating existing purchase orders.
