Create Schedule generally does not include identifying and qualifying new suppliers or contract negotiation; Source-to-order processes typically support predefined supplier relationships only.
The Create Schedule process does include supplier selection if dual or multi-sourcing strategies are in place for a material. Supplier contracts and selection criteria/rules must be pre-established in that case.
