Line Rejection to Sub Contracting Vendor

Dear all,

Good Morning!

We are getting a Halb material from our sub-contracting vendor, to whom we are supplying children components. Now that material is accepted by Quality and moved to production line. Now at Line it has been rejected. Now we want to move this material to sub contracting vendor. What will be the process for it ?

I would also like to share my possible solutions but I don't know whether they are correct or not.

One thing we can do, dismantle this part and move the children component to sub contractor using 541 movement. When we will receive the main component, these children components will be knockout by 543.

Second solution is, we can send the Main part on 541 and then sub contractor will repair the main part and will send it back to us. We will do 542 on receiving.

so Guys please let me know which procedure we should follow?

    Second option may create issue for auditing and/or it can mislead. In first option, you need to know whether your subcontracting vendor will charge for the reparation or not. My concern why do you need to do 541 movement type for child materials again as you are sending the semi-finish material to vendor. If it is just for a reparation process and does not affect any value (neither material's price nor any subcontracting changes), then you can go with subcontracting PO with free tick indicator (then 541 and 101/543) where you can use same material as component and main material as your sending and receiving material is same.

    If you are sending the FG back to vendor, I would suggest to create a direct return delivery in MIGO with 122 movement. This will remove the item from your stock and will show the component / child item stock as vendor stock. When the vendor repairs and send back, you can do a subsequent delivery and receive the FG in stock.

    If its after invoicing, please check whether you can use the OMBZ functionality for 122 movement.

    • Yeah when we do 122 movement, stock is added at vendor end with movement type 544. But In our business there is a process problem.

      122 is considered as Goods Receipt Rejection

      161 is considered as Line Rejection.

      Both the movement types are having different scores which will be assigned to vendor for its performance. So we cannot use 122 movement. is there any kind of automation we can do that whenever 161 is done automatic 544 can be done?
