Automatic creation of purchase orders for subcontracting

Can someone advise me if there is a possibility of creating purchase orders automatically from subcontracting purchase requisitions from a production order. To be precise:

we have an operation in a production order with subcontracting control key (PP02). This currently creates a PR with production order creation.

Is there a way to convert this PR to PO automatically whenever we confirm the previous operation with the same quantity?

Thanks in advance

the automatic creation of a purchase order is done with ME59N transaction or a scheduled job which has this program as step.

So fulfill the prerequisites of a automatic purchase order:

and then test it in ME59N before you schedule a job.

Making the execution depending on a confirmation of the previous operation is then a challenge and you probably have to use a BADI or exit to check whether this confirmation exists.
