RTV Subcontracting

We a retail organization and trying to set up sub contracting correctly. We purchase a piece of artwork from a vendor have that directly sent to a framing vendor, and then buy the finished framed artwork. This works great for us with subcontracting. The issue is when the artwork has a flaw and we have already received in the final combined piece - we cannot do a RTV. When re return the framed artwork we want the RTV to increase the inventory for the artwork, and also on the RTV PO we would like to set the price = the framed portion not the full artwork and frame (without negatively impacting the AMC).

Subcontracting for our prints: Create a PO for a Print vendor(standard article) which gets sent directly to our Frame vendor. We created PO for Frame vendor(sub-contracting article) that has the artwork inside the frame as a complete selling good.

Purpose:

To sell subcontracting articles following our current processes.

Create/receive PO's

Create sales order/deliver customer

Returns from customers

Returns to Vendor via ATV or RTV

Cycle counting

Set up:

Print Article setup:

use our current ZBAS/NORM article set up with a specific storage location 1950 (subcontracting)

DEV system article:

Framed print (subcontracting/selling good) setup:

Source of Supply = Z

info record category = 3

Special procurement = 30

Create a BOM using this as top level article

oBom usage = 3

oprint article as the component

PO setup:

Item category = L

Due to BOM created above - the component article appears under article data tab - components

Issues:

RTV subcontracting article back to frame vendor:

Using our RTV PO type with item category = L, we get an error message of returns not possible for subcontracting items

oDue to above error message we changed item category = 'blank', which created without a cost and no component defaults on article tab.

RTV subcontracting article back to frame vendor to disassemble and sent print back to print vendor:

  • Until we resolve issue above to keep the component linked, we cannot test this

ATV:

  • We haven't tested our ATV process due to the issues above with RTVs.
  • Our current ATV process uses Item Category = L on the PO. Is this a concern?

We have tried:

RTV subcontracting article back to frame vendor:
• Using our RTV PO type with item category = L, we get an error message
of returns not possible for subcontracting items
o Due to above error message we changed item category = 'blank', which
created without a cost and no component defaults on article tab.

RTV subcontracting article back to frame vendor to disassemble and sent
print back to print vendor:
• Until we resolve issue above to keep the component linked, we cannot
test this

Anyone have any ideas on how to get this to work that is NOT overaging the artwork at the subcontracting location?
