    Hi

    To per fo m an operation externally, you have to use control key which will allow externa operation.

    While using this work center in routing , system will prompt you to give purhasing data.

    while creating production order at the time of release , PR will get gebnerated.

    Then MM will take care of this.

    Cost will be cost of the subcontracting will be directly posted to order.

    Hope it is clear.

    Regards

      When the operation is carried out externally it means that we do not have a physical control on the operation, which is carried out at the Subcontractor. So we do not need to maintain that work center.

      We have a control only to mention the operation is external which creates a PO.

      Speaking logically once the material is sent outside the plant for processing, we do not have the physical control of it until we receive the processed component.

      Hope this clarifies you.

    Hi,

    when an operation is performed as external operation, it should have control key related to external processing(standard control key PP02)

    once you attach this control key to any operation, you have to maintain data like Purchase info record( if you maintain cost in that), purchasing group, etc. If you are not maintaining purchase info record, you can enter price directly against that operation in external processing tab.

    PR gets created when the production order is created and you have to process the PR to get Costs assigned to that Production order. .

    Hi,

    Create an operation with the control key having external operation. You need not assign a work center to it. Or you can have a dummy work center without costing ,.. etc.
