Dedham, MA (PressExposure) August 03, 2011 -- SCM Expert Posts New Article - "Hone Your Procurement Process by Using Manufacturing Parts Numbers to Specify Material Sources".
SAPexperts announces a new article, "Hone Your Procurement Process by Using Manufacturing Parts Numbers to Specify Material Sources" available in their SCM Expert knowledgebase.
Many organizations, for one reason or another, prefer to purchase goods from a certain manufacturer over another. In order to specify to the vendor which materials you wish to obtain, you must provide the manufacturer name and manufacturer part number (MPN), along with the plant you would like the products to come from, if desired. Utilizing MPN during the procurement process helps to improve efficiency and transparency by obtaining only the correct materials, and blocks other manufacturers from further orders if they do not fulfill your specific needs.
In this article, you will receive an overview of the benefits businesses can derive by implementing manufacturer part number (MPN) functionality. Learn the strategies and methods of how to execute a MPN implementation into your SAP system. Come to understand the best practices in better using and managing your company's materials, while maintaining the ability to exert power over your resource supply chain.
Bob Croce, product director of SAPexperts comments, "This article guides you through the process to enact managerial decisions over your current procurement process using Manufacturer Part Number (MPN) functionality."
