We are using the DIMP ADSUBCON process to handle refurbishment at an external supplier. The scenario that we have not found a solution for is:
the "forward exchange" scenario does not fit the bill as that seems to only work when you latest at the time of PO creation decide to do a forward exchange. But in this case the decision is made after the supplier has started his work and the material is in vendor stock. The related PO fields are "locked" once the PO has moved on (in line with the SAP documentation that states that no follow up documents should exist.
Another scenario also does not fit the bill. This is changing the material serial number when doing a goods receipt based on the PO or the related inbound delivery. It does allow for the receipt of the material/serial number but then it puts the new serial number on the equipment that generated the service order (swapping the serial nr on the equipment)
The desired scenario would be
Any suggestions on how this is supported in the ADSUBCON process would be appreciated.
