Subcontracting from PM order with serial number

Dear Gurus,

we are introducing a process for the external calibration of measuring equipment. The equipment is created with serial number profile. We intend to send the EQ to an external service provider and receive back the same Equipment.

We create a Plant Maintenance order for calibration (similar to order type PM05) which has an operation processed externally which is indicated for subcontracting. The Equipment to be calibrated is set as the reference object and added to the component list with provisioning indicator S (Subcontracting).

When we release the order, the system creates a purchase requisition which contains the serial number of the Equipment. Until here, everything seems to be fine.

When we transfer the PR into a PO either manually or automatically the serial number is blank and can only be added manually. We prefer the serial number being copied from the PR into the PO automatically. Is someone of you using this functionality and is the serial number being copied from PR into PO automatically? We are unsure if we missed out some configuration or if we need an enhancement to enable this.

Kind regards and thanks in advance

Fabian

    One thing to check is the serialization profile (t-code OIS2). The profile you're using must have the procedure POSL assigned to it.
