Regarding Subcontracting of Maintenance Spare..............

Hello Everybody........

The scenario of my question is like this.......

In my plant there is a machine which is also an asset.......when this asset was purchased by the company......there was no BOM attached to this. After some time, this machine came under breakdown & maintenance person removed one of its part say SHAFT. To reuse this shaft, it needs to be repaired by external agency. There is no other shaft available in the stores to use in this breakdown. Now as this shaft is not maintained in the store (neither as an asset nor as a material), then what will be the procedure to send this shaft to subcontractor.........Material Master for shaft can be created but what abt inventory stock.......

    This scenario will be covered under the PM module. The material master needs to be created for the material shaft.

    In the PM module when you raise a service Order for the Machine which you have bought you need to mention the list of components required to repair the machine. By that time the system will check for the availability of the shaft, if it is a non stock material then the system in turn generates a PR in the background which can be converted in to a PO and then followed by GR so that the servicing operation can be completed and the SO can be confirmed.

    Or else since your servicing operation is going for a subcontracing vendor, better to ask him to procure the material and you pay him the cost of material + labour charges towards the service cost.

      If there is any constraint for creating subasset

      Create the material as only value updating

      Create one more material as QTY.updating

      Create subcon PO for non valuated material

      Create stock for qty updating material

      assign qty updating material as component

      recv the value updating material

      and post the repairs

      and posting thru FB90

      This is just a consideration i haven't tried this scenario please try

      Hope this will help

    Hi Vinay,

    I would like to suggest to create service PO and maintain service sheet.

    You complete the process useing service PO, I think no need to create to do the business with subcontracting. I think you can also do as per Mr.Divakar's method.

    I have not worked on asset PO.
