Is it possible to send a multilevel BOM to a Subcontractor in a Purchase Order?

Manufacturing is outsourced. The Subcontract Purchase Order is generated from MD50 after the creation of an MTO Sales Order. The PO contains a Component list that only has the top level of the Material BOM, the sub-assemblies are not exploded. Has anyone sent a multilevel BOM structure to a Subcon in a PO?

    Hello ,

    there is no such feature in the subcontracting to have multilevel BOM, you can have two options in this case

    1) attach the BOM as DOCument in the PO for the relevant component

    2) add the relevant component in same order with deliver to same vendor as subcontractor with BOM.( take a trial not tested)

    thanks

    When the subcontracted manufacturing requirement is complex enough to require a multi-level BOM, it is better to go with a Production Order with External Processing rather than a Purchase Order.
