Production Order create the Purchase Requisiton


we have a finished goods set up in the system that need to be produce in-house and proceed with final finishing process (plating or coating) by external vendor. Same material no. use for finished goods before and after the final finishing process. When the production order created from planned order, the same quantity of purchase requisition generated without MRP run.

1) Can anyone tell me how the SAP setting for this material? in BOM or Material Master?

2) Why the Purchase Requisition have (*) in end of line and unable to delete? I had tried to convert the PR into PO and delete the PO, but PR remain unchange after the PO deletion.

3) What is the transaction use to monitor this external process if deliver to vendor using PO?

Appreciate for reply the answer asap.

Thank you.

    Hi Alan

    What you need is to create an externally processed operation for your order. You can do that by assigning the standard control key PP03 to the finishing operation on your routing. If the requisition is created through a production order, then you cannot delete it manually, in order to avoid inconsistencies, and you should make the changes through the production order.

    You can use transaction ME2O to monitor materials provided to vendor or the standard transactions to monitor POs.

    • Hi Alan
      PP03, is not the Transaction code, this is the Control key in the Production Order. (get copied from the Routing).
      This control key will trigger the External Processing, which will create the Purchase Requisition directly, when you create the production Order. Control Keys are defined at the Configuration (T code : OP00), and are assigned in the Work Center/Routing, which will get copied into the Production Order.
      Hope, this is clear now, about the Control Key.

    Alan, Caetano has mentioned a control key which will be part of your routing master data (CA02, CA03 transactions). I guess Caetano has made a typo - control key PP02 (not PP03) is used for externally processed operations. In the operation details, you will also find the purchasing data details maintained.
