    Service procurement and subcontracting procurement are totally different process. It can't be use as vice-versa. Both are having different business process. I don't understand how service PO can be preferred for a subcontracting process. If you issue a stock of material to vendor by using movement type 541, then how can you receive final product from a service purchase order? How can you make a consumption for the material which you have sent to vendor. Subcontracting process has different type of accounting entries, By using MB11, all accounting entries will be different. If only the problem is to identify the material and issue multiple times, then ME2O can be used. But service PO is not a good idea.

    You already mentioned that there are multiple issuance. MB11 / MB1B wont restrict the GI and it can be issued multiple times with 541 movement - however, it will show as stock provided to vendor. If you want a better control, you may use ME2O, which will give a clear picture during GI and you have multiple selection and report options.
