Subcon scenario for other plant

We have a scenario when we are sending the production orders from a plant to another in case there are capacity breakdowns. The other plant can process and send that materials original plants where we complete the GR process and deliver the E stock to customers. Although this sounds to be a subcontracting scenario, we have following open points.

  1. Every plant needs a production order to process on shop floor MES system. So if we send the PR/STO to other plant, how will we create the Production order in that plant? The PR/STO is for a service and not for material as in standard STO process.
  2. If we create a production order in supplying plant with respect to the original SO in other plant, system does allow it, but then I get entire E stock available in supplying plant and an open production order in receiving plant
  3. If I close production order in receiving plant and receive directly E stock, I still have the stock of material issued to a production order on shop floor order. The stock that goes with subcon STO should be available in other plant to process which is not availableā€

Can you suggest some way around on this issue? What we need is a solution which works in terms of material movements in plants. Manual interventions are ok since this is an exception scenario
