I have a situation where if I want to purchase a specific material, the vendor requires I order a specific amount. The problem is the vendor is going to charge us for the leftover raw material they are using. We can use this leftover material as a different material already loaded in SAP.
Is there any way to link the 2 materials in such a way that MRP generates a purchase requisition for a fixed quantity of the required material as well a purchase requisition for the second item?
My research tells me that this is similar to the bi-product process available in production, but I can find nothing on the purchasing side.
