It is possible to define what documents are required to be received from a vendor during the course of a project and subsequently used to expedite the documents. The documents form part of the purchase order closeout activities and may also be included in milestone monitoring activities.
Vendor document requirements (VDR) are defined on the D.40.11 Vendor Data Requirements screen.
VDR sets are defined on the D.40.12 VDR Sets screen.
To define VDRs and VDR sets in Smart Materials, proceed as described in Vendor Data Requirements.
It is not possible to copy VDRs from other projects or product groups. They must be defined separately for each project.
In the VDR set, the timing of delivery can be changed from that specified against the individual documents.
Changes to the document revisions will cause a revision to the requisition.
To attach VDRs to a requisition, proceed as follows:
Select the requisition on R.30.01 Maintain Requisitions.
On the VDRs tab of D.90.21, select a VDR from the LOV in the VDR field.
Alternatively, select a pre-defined VDR set from the LOV in the VDR Set field, and click Copy to attach all VDRs from the selected set.
