SAP SRM interview questions must read**********************************
- 1. What is SRM and why should a company add this module to its SAP application? SRM means supplier relationship management. Just as a robust company puts in an effort to develop customer relationships, the company should strengthen its procurement processes by automation and efficiency. SRM can examine and forecast the company’s purchasing pattern, work with vendors in real time, and shorten procurement cycles.
- 2. What does SRM handle? SRM handles analytics, supplier collaboration, operational contracts, service purchasing, self-service procurement, catalog content, supplier qualification, strategic sourcing, and plan-driven procurement.
- 3. Name ten SRM submodules. These would be the Supplier self-services (SUS) service agent, the SUS order processor, the SUS invoicing party, the SUS administrator supplier, the one-client invoice verification clerk, the survey reviewer, the strategic purchaser, the component planner, the employee and the invoice verification clerk. This is about one third of the submodules in SRM.
- 4. How is SRM used? SRM can be used two ways. First, employees can purchase materials and services they need to complete the company’s goals. This process is simplified by a Web-based GUI that simultaneously filters by corporate spending and purchasing compliance. The second way is by an automated system which procures materials as part of a company’s supply-chain workflow.
- 5. What is the relationship between SRM and MM? The MM module manages the materials of the company. SRM issues purchase orders for MM only; it is where vendor information is managed.
- 6. What is a business partner? A partner function? Business partners cover all stakeholders in the company – employees, vendors/suppliers, customers. A partner function is any function related to these partners, such as invoicing a customer, purchase order issuance, authorization procedures, and so on.
- 7. What is a company code for? Many large corporations actually consist of separate companies (plants) with separate functions and accounting. By assigning a code to each company, its financial and legal parameters and reports can remain separate.
- Name a few of the tables available in SRM. SRM has many tables. Among them, the product table, product category table, Web survey questionnaire, business address services, communication usages, account assignment, PO item confirmation, business transaction item purchasing, value limits, tax, tolerances, transactions, partners, links, chopping cart, invoice and credit memo, and SRM confirmations.
- What is the Import Status Tab for? When you are importing and customizing an import scenario, this tab will give you information on the status of the import – how many fields from the source have been mapped to the destination, what source is involved, and what the destination is. It also will tell you what table joins and field lookups are being used.
- Do you have to re-create mappings each time? No, you can re-use mappings by exporting the mapping file and uploading it back for re-use. The next time you want to use it, use the QA System Import Manager, open the import file involved, and select the mapping file from Catalog Items ImportMap.
