    HI,

    What is the best practices to create the Supplier Site Assignment. we are doing below steps to create supplier site and Assignments.

    Case:

    Business Units : A, B , C

    Sites: 3 sites, once for each business unit

    Site 1 = BU - A

    Site 2 = BU - B

    Site 3 = BU - C

    Created Supplier XYZ with 3 Sites as Site 1 , 2 & 3

    In site Assignment:

    Site 1
    Client BU  Bill-To BU
    A A
    B A
    C A
       
    Site 2
    Client BU  Bill-To BU
    A B
    B B
    C B
       
    Site 3
    Client BU  Bill-To BU
    A C
    B C
    C C

    Is this the correct practice we are following ?

    Thanks

    Seems BU A, B and C all have Bill-To BU function.  Would it be ok to assign each client BU self as bill-to BU, like this:

    Site 1:

    Client BU-Bill-to BU

    A-A

    B-B

    C-C

    And do the same for Site 2 and Site 3.  Can you share more details on the sites and BU setup for your business needs?

    Thanks,

    Hong

      I agree with Hong here, it's tough to say unless we have an idea on what you're trying to accomplish with the overall functioanlity of the sites.  I"m struggling to understand the use case in which you would setup what you have there.  Do you really want all three business units able to buy from each site, but bill it to a different BU?
