    Dear Ruchika,

    MRP view is not necessary for automatic determination of BOM in sub-contracting process. Material BOM alone is enough to trigger the component materials when creating a sub-contracting PO. MRP view is required when you want to automate the purchasing process through MRP run.

    Kindly write me back for any further clarifications.

    Best Regards

    Hi Ruchika,

    If you would like to determine item category "L" automatically while create Purchase order, if you would like to select alternate bill of materials while create Purchase order and if you would like to plan the material via MRP then you've to maintain MRP views in the material master otherwise not required.

    Create a material without MRP views and do a testing. This will give you better understanding.

    Hi Ruchika

    Not necessary to maintain the MPR view to explode BOM at sub contracting PO, maintain the bom with item category, while creating po you can see in material tab and click on explod bom

    Hello

    If you would like to have subcontracting requisitions generated by MRP with the BOM explosion during the MRP run, you must define the respective special procurement key on tab MRP2 of the material master.

    Dear Ruchika Sahu,

    If you have an purchasing document with special procurement (for example, subcontracting or consignment), you must have entered the corresponding special procurement key in the material master(MRP2 view, field Special procurement).

    This is the prerequisites for automatic source determination in the requirements planning and BOM

    explosion.

    You can check SAP note 206684 for more information.

    Hi,

    Create a material without MRP views and maintain BOM for material. Now create subcontract PO and complete subcontracting process to find the difference between material with MRP views and material without MRP views for subcontract PO process!

    Hello,

    The only fields in MRP view which will affect the subcontracting procurement is

    1) type of procurement (internal, external or both)

    2) Special procurement in MRP 2 tab.
