Afternoon,

I am looking at ways that i can supply components to a customer whom in turn is going to use them in an assembly but deliver the assembly to another site

We have a purchase order in place for the finished assemblies. In order for us to deliver the components that are to be consumed can we use the SUBCONTRACTING procedure?

Setting it up as Q & L with the Assembly Material number and then having the components listed.

When i do go to action this the assembly already has a BOM but is calling up different parts. I want to supply from plant 2000 but want the assembly to be delivered to plant 1000. looking at the other components these are all marked plant 1000 & storage 1000.

I read it 3 times but it keeps being confusing.

"supply components to a customer" - if you are talking about subcontracting then you actually supply components to a vendor

"We have a purchase order in place for the finished assemblies" - isn't it a bit late to ask for the process after you have already the purchase order in place? What do you pay? Just service fee for assembling or do you purchase here an assembly like you purchase trading goods and raw materials?

"In order for us to deliver the components that are to be consumed can we use the SUBCONTRACTING procedure?" Depends on the answer from above - if you deliver to a customer then it is a sales process, if you deliver to a vendor and pay only for the service then it is a subcontract.

"Setting it up as Q & L" - sorry, no idea what Q & L is.

"the assembly already has a BOM but is calling up different parts" - Nobody here can know what is meant by different parts. When you create the PO the found BOM is exploded. So you might eventually have several BOMs for one material. It is not possible to select a BOM of your choice in PO, SAP has its design how to determine the BOM and documented it. It is also a FAQ and many times answered in the past.

"I want to supply from plant 2000 but want the assembly to be delivered to plant 1000." this is as well a FAQ - please search before asking, it is a rule.
