SAP Ariba Sourcing is an intuitive, in-cloud, web-based RFX management tool to quickly and easily create and manage sourcing events that can cut sourcing cycle times, reduce administrative costs, and realize immediate savings for businesses.

The PLM/ERP system can be integrated with Ariba sourcing to receive the requirements from exploded BOM (Bill of Materials). All such requirements will then be sourced by using Ariba sourcing and rest of the procurement process will be followed in Ariba or SAP back end.

Two main areas for Sourcing in SAP Ariba are:

a) Direct material Sourcing: leveraging existing Ariba Sourcing application with Quote to RFX Functionality,

b) Product Sourcing with BOMs and Quote Automation.

Souring for Direct material happens in two ways:

a) Creation of Sourcing request > Sourcing project > RFX and Contract > Contract to ERP,

b) Creation of Quote from PR> Quotation > Quote > Contract/PO.

In summary, SAP Ariba Sourcing solution supports a closed-loop, digital, source-to-contract process for sourcing direct and indirect materials using superior tools, expertise, and information. Process efficiencies can be created across all spend categories along with increased spend management in a single strategic sourcing solution that integrates with the organization's ERP system.

Uplatz offers this comprehensive training on SAP Ariba Sourcing with self-paced videos covering each topic in great depth.
