How to Post Returns from Subcontracting Vendor to GR Blocked Stock

Hi Guru's,

I want to post the returns from Subcontracting Vendor to GR Blocked Stock instead of " 542 in MB1B- as per standard ".

Then i want to release from GR Blocked Stock to Actual Stock.

Can anyone suggest me the logic of how to configure this Process.

Any Input is Highly appreciated.

Thanks and Regards,

    Hi Selva Kumar,

    sub contracting process is very simple when we are

    puchasing materials from vendor . materials is converted

    in to frosted like new bottle convertd into frosted that

    type of contracting is also called as sub contracting.

    this process some times variation dependent on supplier

    because supplier some time exemption from tax that time

    variation was arrising

    scrap accounting in subcontracting

    1 Go through the following steps.

    1. Say i am providing three components A, B & C to get

    ASSEMBLY from sub contractor vendor.

    2. Create a Material master for Scrap material say D.

    3. In BOM, maintain the Material D in negative quantity,

    Say A - 1 off, B - 2 off , C - 2 off, D - 1 kg.

    4. Now follow the regular process of subcontrating.

    5. When you want to inward the scrap material from the

    subcontractor end, first receive the material D with the

    movement type 545 ( This will make the material available

    in material provided to vendor stock ).

    6. Then do a GR with 542 movement type to get the scrap

    material in to plant stock ( ie reversal of 541- Goods

    issue movement type)

    Steps for Subcontracting

    Like to share with you my Subcontracting Steps:

    1. Define all the materials in your plant (subcontracting and packaging etc).

    2. In the material master MRP 4 view there is one field in which you can mention that this material is not relevant to MRP planning, use this field for subcontracting material so that it will not be planned in MRP runs ( generally use this field for re-order point planning).

    3. In the BOM for the subcontracting material put the special procurement key as Subcontracting and do not keep relevance for costing.

    4. If you're using packaging material of your company and want to capture the cost of these materials in the subcontracting production order then put relevance for cost.

    5. Define alternate BOMs for each customer

    6. Generally the routing will be the same but materials will change, define different prodcution versions for each alternate BOM and assign to the routing.

    7. Define the activite types for packing and mixing in the work center and assign them to the cost center, use these for your routing.

    8. Whenever you recive a sub-contracting order, use the relevant production version depending on the customer.



    reward me if usefull

      Subcontract Vendor is Returning the Rawmaterials received against BOM for the Subcontract Order and saying that he cannot completely process the Full order due to Machine Breakdown. job worker hand over's these rawmaterials to you and we want to Check the Usability of Material.

      I want to Post the rawmaterial Received from Subcontract vendor to GR Blocked Stock(103) and check the rawmaterial for any damages and usability. later i want to post to Unrestricted Stock(105).

      Can anyone sujjest me how to configure this scenario.

      Any Input is Higly appreciable.

      Thanks and Regards,
