Advanced Returns Management - Return to

Vendor

1

Purpose

The Supplier Returns in ERP- Advanced Returns Management business process comprises two scope items; return to an external vendor and return to another location or DC. This document deals with the return to vendor scope item, the return to another location or DC scope item is subject matter of document BPD 738 (Store Return to Another Location or DC). There are different reasons why goods are returned to a vendor: For some materials the season has come to an end; for others there is an agreement with the vendor that you can return a surplus stock, and you want return defective technical products.

This business process involves several business roles. A purchaser in one of your company's locations wants to return some articles and initiates the return to vendor process. Preparing the shipment of the articles to the vendor falls into the responsibility of warehouse clerks. Credit memos from the vendor are processed from the accounts payable accountants.

Process flow

The business process return to vendor starts with the creation of a returns purchase order document in SAP ERP.

This returns purchase order is similar to a standard purchase order but with functionalities of Advanced Returns Management.

The returns to vendor process flow comprise the following process steps:

Create a returns purchase order

To initiate a return to vendor, you create a returns purchase order either with reference to an earlier purchase order or without reference.

Create an outbound delivery and post goods issue

To initiate the shipment to the vendor you create the outbound delivery for the existing returns purchase order. You post the goods issue for the outbound delivery after picking in the warehouse.

Enter results of an article inspection by vendor

You have an agreement with your vendor that he shall perform an article inspection on articles that you return to him. After you have received the information about the articles from the vendor you enter the inspection results using the specific Enter Article Inspection by Vendor transaction.

Enter credit memo in Invoice Verification

You enter the credit memo from the external vendor in module Invoice Verification.  Monitor the returns to vendor business process

The Returns Overview for Supplier Returns transaction allows you to monitor all the documents associated with a return to vendor business transaction. In addition, you can check the status for the logistical processing, the refunding status, and overall processing status.
