Quota Arrangement Setup

Deal all SAP gurus,

I need your help! My company has a problem that we are trying to address when it comes to dual sourced parts. Here is some background info.

My company has 2 manufacturing sites and we've agreed upon a 60-40 split in productions requirements for Product A. They are plant 1 and I am plant 2.

Plant 1 loads the finishd good orders which drive down to the components. Problem is that the finished good component are built in both plant 1 and plant 2 to cover requirements.

I was thinking of setting up a quota arrangement with special procurement type X (In house production & External procurement). Once the order quantity is loaded they recieve a maximum of 40% of the orders and we recieve 60%. both plants use the same part number, how do we set up this part to correctly send the right signals of production to plant 1 and plant 2?

Can you help with this? Please let me know if you need further explanation

Thanks,

Ace
