New MRP Area for stocks at Vendor

Hello. Experts. We have sub-contracting vendor and raw materials delivery to vendor for casting process. In this case, if I run MRP for finished goods, result would not considered stocks at vendor. So, I've create new MRP area using vendor number, and all relevant raw materials are configured with new MRP area in MRP1 view. And, I've also configured delivery address of schedule agreement of raw materials for SC checking with vendor number. Source list also has been updated for new MRP area. With these configuration, i can get good mrp result what i expect. However, if i do MIGO for raw materials, all stocks are stores in Vendor, not plant. I think that third party processing configuration of special procurement in new mrp area is caused. Is there anyone who can solve this problem?

    subcontracting stock is always kept at vendor level. you can see it by looking into the table MSLB, it has never been different and is well explained in help.sap.com and several OSS notes .

      Thank you for your answer. I know that subcontracting stock is always at Vendor level. However, we do sample quality test for raw materials before vendor. So, raw materials have to stored in plant first, when we do MIGO.

    in that case you must not flag the SC indicator and have to move the material to the vendor yourself with ME2O

    Please explain the physical flow of goods in more detail.

    Is the material directly going from vendor to the subcontractor? or is really physically first coming to your plant and then moved to your subcontractor?

    How is the inspection done? Do you drive to the subcontractor and take a sample or is the subcontractor sending you a sample, or is the subcontractor doing the quality inspection for you. Or does the vendor send you a sample to your plant?

    Do you use the QM module?

      Hi~

      We've decided to apply check of post to inspection stock in MM of raw materials. Then when we do MIGO materials will go quality stock at Vendor. We will use that location defined as a local physically. Thanks.
