external services

Hi Friends,

we are doing job work for our clients. so initially, we are receiving material as non valuated material assigned to sales order. Then it will be issued for production. then it will go through some operations. Then it has to go through external processing( sub contracting).So here purchase requisition has been created for that defined operation. and this has been converted to PO. now I have to issue the material to sub contractor. So please explain , how to get this material into our stock from production.(here the material no. has not changed yet). please reply...

    There are two options in subcontracting mapping

    Option -1

    Insert a new operation in production order w/o work centre and control key PP02

    go into the detailed screen - external process tab page

    click on subcontracting check box

    You need to create a subcontracting vendor purchase info record (for doing the work) with out material and enter the cost element for which the cost has to be booked, price will be defaulted from info record, however you can change it.

    Now release the operation....System will create a PR, convert it to PO and send the material to vendor (without posting to inventory) with this service PO.

    After receiving the material directly into production facility do confirm the order operation. and proceed.

    Option -2

    If you want to inventarise and send it to vendor then above procedure is useless, go for a subcontracting cycle where in when you create a PO, system will ask for the raw material in you case raw material and purchase material is same.

    With 541- O movement type you can send the material and with 101 you can receive the material. Make sure that -ve stock is allowed for this material so that when you issue 541-o, system will put a -ve stock and when you receive system will put stock so that net will become zero. You have a different storage loc for subcontracting so that you can have -ve stock at storage loc level.

    Your input & output material must be different no. Otherwise to check the stock is difficult. If you are using same material no for input & output add code in prefix or suffix for differentiate & easy identification.

    To send the material to subcontract, after creating the production order change the control key to PP02 to the respective operation. So system will generate P.R for that opn. After converting to P.O, you can send the material by ME2O and receive the same by MIGO 101 mvt.
