    Hi,

    You have to activate External Processing

    "X" (T Code OPJ8) in PP01 Control key for that operation which u want to do externally

    Once u do this system will ask for subcontracting details.

    This will not create Subcontracting PR during MRP run. This will create PR during Production order release or

    that particular operation released and there will entry also in inventory management as it is purely service subcontracting

    And when you confirm prevoius operation, it will move to next operation (SubContr) and create PR

    (for that you need to choose PP02 or you can configure the control key for this operation).

    That PR you can convert in to PO, rest process is common.

    Regards

    Rahim

      Hi Rahim,

      We have already done the things u told and we have got the PR (subcontracting) for that operation.

      But the problem is when I am trying to convert PR to subcontracting PO, syestem is saying that no component is selectable for that PO and I am not able to process it further.

      Now My question is how to process the operation subcontracting PR. I am facing problem as there can not be any material in PO as this is operation subcontracting.

      I need the procedure to process the Operation subcontracting PR (without material).

    Hi,

    Just change the Acc.Ass.Category to 'K' and Item Category'D'

    & Don't Give any matarail code & save.

    Convert the PR into PO.

    Here classical Subcontract PO doesn't work.

    Hope you understand .

    Regards

    Hi,

    I am observing conversion of this issue, but i have few concerns-

    1. When you sent the material for Sub Contracting at Intermediate stage without Material Code then what basis you receives the Material after converted into Finish Goods.

    2. How show the consumption of Raw Material at Job Work Premises which converted into Finish Material.

    3. If any Scrap is generaged then what was the treatment of the scrap.

    I think better solution is create a Material Code and sent for Sub Contracting then receives the material against the sub contracting PO.

    Hi,

    1. That's why I propose no material send/reciept, because its service.

    2.Again no consumption of Raw material.

    3.At present He not mentioned about Scrap, then why u include this ..?

    Think logically ..!
