How to know Components stock consumption lying @ Subcontractor per day

Hi Gurus,

Greetings to all.

I've have requirement in SC process, where we are dispatching the components to SC vendor using 541 (w.r.t a SC PO) & receiving the FG(PO Item) using 101 movement type. Here Component stocks would be shown at Vendor's location when 541 used and consumed when FG received. But in client's business, the FG manufacturing will take 45 days in complete form. But the daily consumed qty has to be removed from his inventory and has to be loaded on the FG. I'm getting screwed here, where without FG receipt how come components value loaded on to the FG value. This is essential on part of FG costing. I tried with so many threads, but was helpless. Please some one can help me out here.Your efforts are highly appreciated.

Thanks,

Sri..

  • I'm with AKPT below. Why are you even doing this? The whole point of the sub-contracting process is you ship items out to basically a black box, and you get back from the black box a different, processed material and possibly any unused materials.

    Why are you trying to charge and consume this on a daily basis?

    Hi,

    If the FG is not sent back from the vendor, how you will know how much quantity of the raw materials are consumed. How the vendor will intimate you the raw quantity consumed on daily basis, for example. Moreover, what is the benefit of reducing the raw material stock from vendor and loding to FG, where the FG itself is not received. Please check the scenario again and revert back!

    It is possible to know the real-time consumption posting of subcontracting components and for the same you've to use SAP Supplier network collaboration and have to activate the business function "LOG_MM_OM_1"

    For details, please read the point no 6 in the link below.

    Hi All,

    Thanks for all your inputs. But the requirement in the client's business is like that. We are doing proj for Poultry industry where Chicks will be sent to Broiler farm along with feed & medicine. This is actually a stock transfer but not a sale. The farm vendor is liable for the growing of the chick for 45 days and he will be paid with growing charges. The Feed & medicine will be transferred for 4-5 times during these 45 days. But the client will record daily consumption and the inventory will be deducted from both farmer & our inventory. The daily consumption has to be loaded on to the chick/broiler bird such that he wants to know how Chick/Bird value accumulated with the daily consumption.

    And client wants to know the real time inventory levels at any point of time both at vendor premises and at his location. Right now in the legacy they are debiting and crediting the material against the vendor in a logical location (called plant) hence they are able to reduce the consumption from the inventory.

    So please look in to this and can help.

    Thanks,

    Sri..
