Sub contracting process errors - for Repairs

Issues with our current 4.6C repairs subcontracting process are;

ℹ️ subcontracting process doesn’t allow the issue of items managed with special stock (current work around is that customer parts are brought back in to our stock as sales order stock) and

(ii) (assuming the previous issue is fixed or avoided) the fact that we are using serialised materials means that at GR, the system tries to receipt the repaired item before consuming the one that had been issued (same item), therefore the system issues an error as it considers at GR that the item is still at the subcontractor (“equipment not suitable for movement”).

Your advice is greatly appreciated!

      Thanks Jeevan.R for your reply. As I am not an expert in this area, I am hoping you can advise the name of the BADI (and method if more than 1)? Also, does "SL" mean serial in your reply for problem 2?

      Thanks again

    The system does not allow use of recursive serial numbers i.e. the same serial number cannot be issued (consumed as in suncontracting) and receipted in the same material document. Currently this is allowed only in IS Aerospace and Defence.

    What we did when we had a similar situation was to receipt it by adding a pre-determined suffix and then have a batch job remove the suffix via Change Serial number (IQ02) transaction.
