Vendor Rating in Purchase Line
In this section, the COSMO Vendor Rating-specific fields on the purchase line are described.
Duty of Rating
This check box is selected if the Duty of Rating toggle is turned on in the Vendor Card and/or is set in the Item/Vendor Catalog page.
Only these purchase lines are considered for the vendor rating that have the Duty of Rating check box selected.
Assert Terms of Delivery
This check box must be selected manually if the delivery date (Promised Receipt Date) and the shipment quantity are known.
The check box will be selected automatically when releasing the order if the Assert Terms of Delivery on Release toggle is turned on in the Vendor Rating Setup page. An additional effect of this setting is that the value in the Planned Receipt Date field of the purchase line is copied to the Promised Receipt Date field if a promised receipt date has not been entered yet.
If this check box is not selected automatically when releasing the order, the Promised Receipt Date must be entered manually. If this field is blank during the posting of the receipt, the receipt line will be rated with a score of 100 in the Due Date Rating.
The ordered quantity must be entered in the Quantity field. The system automatically copies this value to the Assert Purchase Order Quantity field if the Assert Terms of Delivery check box is selected.
If the value in the Quantity field is changed, then the Assert Terms of Delivery check box should be re-selected to refresh the quantity in the Assert Purchase Order Quantity field.
Promised Receipt Date
The promised receipt of goods date is entered in the Promised Receipt Date field on the Shipping FastTab and is then transferred to the purchase line if the Assert Terms of Delivery check box is selected. This is the receipt date being promised by the vendor.
This field must be filled before posting the receipt. Together with the Arrival Date, the promised receipt date serves as a calculation field for the automatic Due Date Rating of a shipment. This field was added because the actual delivery date may often vary profoundly from the posting date of the delivery and thus the delivery line rating would be falsified.
Actual date of the receipt. This field is initialized with the posting date of the purchase order – if the Use Post. Date as Arrival Date toggle is turned on in the Vendor Rating Setup page – but can be changed manually by the user.
Together with the Promised Receipt Date, the arrival date serves as a calculation field for the automatic Due Date Rating of a shipment.
Assert Purchase Order Quantity
Non-editable field that is filled automatically with the value from the Quantity field if the Assert Terms of Delivery check box has been selected by the user.
Indicates if a quality rating exists for the purchase line. This rating can be entered by choosing the No value in the field or choosing Line > Quality Rating on the Lines FastTab. In the Quality Rating Code Document page, choose the relevant rating in the Code field.
Quality ratings can also be done for posted receipts. For more information, see Quality Rating for Purchase Receipt Line.
Entering a Quality Rating on the purchase line prior to receipt will only affect the Quality Rating Entries when the receipt is posted.
