If you use delivery plans, you can work with or without sharing documentation. Working with such documentation offers the advantage of having you display, if necessary, the valid shares of the delivery plan that have been transmitted to a supplier for a certain period of time. In this step, a release profile is maintained for delivery plans with proof of release. This profile determines the output creation strategy and how backlog and immediate requirements will be taken into account when creating output. To maintain the release profile, you can go to IMG (SPRO) > the materials > purchasing industry > delivery plan > release profile for SA with proof of sharing. Contracts and SAs have many similar functions. The decision to be used is less important than when a framework agreement should be used compared to a regular order. A contract offers the advantage of familiarity and usability, as sharing order screens do not differ from a normal order. . .
