BOM: particular subcontracting materials. Help!

hi everybody.
We are dealing with a rare issue concerning the Bill of materials and the material master.

common subcontracting codes have this structure:

code : AB1 --> procurement type: F30 (subcontracting)

the bom contains the code AB2--> procurement type : F (buy)

when we purchase the code AB1, the system inserts automatically code AB2 in the PO and generates need in the mrp

BUT we have some codes which have another structure:

code : AB1 --> procurement type: F30 (subcontracting)

The bom contains:

1) code AB2 --> procurement type : F (buy) when we purchase the code AB1, the system inserts automatically code AB2 in the PO and generates need in the mrp

2) code AB3

3) code AB4

4) code AB5

We want code AB2 to be sent to the supplier as material to be worked, but WE DO NOT WANT the mrp to process code AB3 AB4 AB5 (which are supplied by the supplier and not by us)

The easiest way of dealing with this issue would be to cut codes AB3 AB4 AB5 from the bom, but WE NEED TO KEEP THOSE CODES in the bom, to keep history of the composition of the materials and to be able to repair possible broken materials.

Do you know if there is any way to tell to the mrp to avoid to process codes AB3 AB4 AB5? is there any box in the bom which we can thick?

Thanks in advance for your help

Arianna

    Are you certain everything is right in your story?

    I cannot see any relation between AB2 and AB3, AB4 and AB5, except that they are in the same BOM for AB1.

    But why should AB3, AB4 and AB5 come into the game if you want rework AB2?
