Sub-Contracting for Make to Order

Hi all

We are having Make to Order Scenario. We have created a sales order and some materials for BOM have to send for Sub-Contracting Process.

I have created a PO with Acct Assignment "E - Ind. cust. w. KD-CO" and Item Category as "L".

But as per Standard SAP Acct Assgnmt "E" and Item Category "L" is not possible.

Consider the Header material is "X " and Component is "Y".

I am having Material "Y " in Sale Order Stock. Now when i do MB1B using 541 mvmgt type the system is not allowing me to post .

please suggest me this scenario how to proceed.

<b>For a Make to Order scenario how to do Sub-contracting Process.</b>

Regards

Kumar

    Try adding the link of item category L and account assignment category E in customising under

    Materials Management --> Purchasing --> Account Assignment --> Define Combination of Item Categories / Account Assignment Categories.

    Please test this carefully. Would appreciate a feedback on whether this worked or not.

    Hi,

    For transfering sale order stock to sub-contractor the movement type is 311-E. Here, you have to create the sub-contractor storage location & then transfer the stock (of BOM material) to sub-contractor storage location by movement type 311-E in transaction MB1B. While posting GRN of the upper material, system posts the consumption of the BOM material against the upper material.

    Hope this works.

    Regards,

    Prashant
