In this IMG activity you define the factory status, which will be used as a criterion for the vendor ranking in the source allocation. With the factory status you valuate the relationship between you and your vendor and you enter this value in the AFS additional data of the vendor master record.
Define the values for the factory status between 1 and 9 and enter short texts. With 1 you valuate the relationship to your vendor as very good, with 9 as just barely acceptable.
To ensure that partners or strategically important vendors are given preference for receiving your orders, define 3 values for the factory status (1 - Partner; 2 - preferred vendor; 3 - other vendor) and assign these values to the corresponding vendors in the master data. If you then set the percentage quota of the factory status correspondingly high in the vendor ranking during a source allocation run, purchase requisitions will be assigned to your partners first. Only if the purchase requisitions cannot serve these vendors will a check and possibly an assignment of the purchase requisitions to other vendors take place.
