Give the differences between a contract and scheduling agreement?
Some of the points of difference are -
1. While a scheduling agreement is for consignment, subcontracting and stock transfer, a contract is for Standard items and can be limited to a certain quantity or value.
2. A contract can be created centrally with different pricing conditions for every plant on the other hand a scheduling agreement needs to be created at that particular plant location.
3. In a contract, only time-dependant conditions can be created whereas in a scheduling agreement, you can have time-dependant or time-independent conditions subject to the customizations in the document type.
