Procurement from alternate plant and external vendor simultaneously

Dear Experts,

I have a requirement as below:
I have a SFG material which is externally procured(from China) in plant A and in-house manufactured in plant B(made in USA). There are few clients who send order in Plant A and ask for the USA made SFG part to be used in FG assembly for better quality (STO process). Else by default it is procured from China. How do I replicate this scenario in MRP?

    If you are using, S/4HANA, you can achieve this by using segmentation functionality. Segmentation will be useful if you do not want to create multiple materials for the same FG based on whether the SFG is made out of US or not.

    Other option is to create separate FG materials based on whether the SFG is made in China or USA.
