no one can provide any insight on the material master data topic?
If for example I identify with sourcing a vendor for a new raw material (direct) and we make a contract, isn't it a problem if master data of the part number are not available in SAP? Should they be created manually?
I reached out to SundarK concerning your question. Guidance can vary depending on a number of factors, so it is best for you to work directly with your BPO team or with the relationship manager. Sundar hosts the Direct Material Sourcing group, which is a private collaboration group at Ariba Exchange. This is another resource you can leverage to get input on future questions about this topic.
