Hi Deepthi,

Process flow for MM:

The typical procurement cycle for a service or material consists of the following phases:

1. Determination of Requirements

Materials requirements are identified either in the user departments or via materials planning and control. (This can cover both MRP proper and the
demand-based approach to inventory control. The regular checking of stock levels of materials defined by master records, use of the order-point
method, and forecasting on the basis of past usage are important aspects of the latter.) You can enter purchase requisitions yourself, or they can be
generated automatically by the materials planning and control system.

2. Source Determination

The Purchasing component helps you identify potential sources of supply based on past orders and existing longer-term purchase agreements. This
speeds the process of creating requests for quotation (RFQs), which can be sent to vendors electronically via SAP EDI, if desired.

3. Vendor Selection and Comparison of Quotations

The system is capable of simulating pricing scenarios, allowing you to compare a number of different quotations. Rejection letters can be sent

4. Purchase Order Processing

The Purchasing system adopts information from the requisition and the quotation to help you create a purchase order. As with purchase
requisitions, you can generate Pos yourself or have the system generate them automatically. Vendor scheduling agreements and contracts (in the
SAP System, types of longer-term purchase agreement) are also supported.

5. Purchase Order Follow-Up

The system checks the reminder periods you have specified and - if necessary - automatically prints reminders or expediters at the predefined
intervals. It also provides you with an up-to-date status of all purchase requisitions, quotations, and purchase orders.

6. Goods Receiving and Inventory Management

Goods Receiving personnel can confirm the receipt of goods simply by entering the Po number. By specifying permissible tolerances, buyers can
limit over- and under deliveries of ordered goods.

7. Invoice Verification

The system supports the checking and matching of invoices. The accounts payable clerk is notified of quantity and price variances because the
system has access to PO and goods receipt data. This speeds the process of auditing and clearing invoices for payment.

Process flow for FI:

Data flow can happen in finance module from many quarters in SAP and non SAP system depending upon the landscape of the ERP system
implemented. I am giving below the general overview of data flow.

The Financial Accounting (FI) application component fulfills all the international requirements that must be met by the financial accounting
department of an organization. It provides the following features:

Management and representation of all accounting data

All business transactions are recorded according to the document principle, which provides an unbroken audit trail from the financial statements to
the individual documents.

Open and integrated data flow

Data flow between Financial Accounting and the other components of the SAP System is ensured by automatic updates.

Data is available in real time within Financial Accounting. Postings made in the subledgers always generate a corresponding posting in the general

The dataflow as functional process below are the points:

1) Purchasing Requsition -> sent by inventory dept to purcharsing dept

2) Request for Quotation(RFQ)-> Purchasing Dept shall ask the vendors to give the quotation for the requested materials by inventory.
3) Quotation -> Quotation is sent by vendors to the company
4) Purchase order-> Based on all paramers of a quotation sent by vendors. Vendors are selected from whom the material has to be obtained. The
company gives purchase order to the vendor.
5) Good's receipt -> vendors sends the goods to the company with goods receipt
6) Invoice verification -> this done based on good's receipt. this means that the ordered goods have reached or not.
7) Payment -> payment is done based on invoice verification. this is (FI/CO)
