    change the procurement type from F to X(which is both inhouse and external procurement) in the product master,.so that u can create PPM for that product

    You can material type as "F" in the Manufacturing Plant Location and Maintain the Material as "E" in the Subcontractors location and create the PPM.

    In APO,Procurement type is based on Product Location combination.So it will be ok to have "F" in manufacturing location and "E" in subcontrating location with PPM and also have transportation lane between 2 locations for cross location planning.

      Hello Thukral/Pankaj,

      Sorry for late reply..

      Now I have created the following in R3 & SCM

      In R3

      1. Mat A with Pr. type F & SPK 30 in plant 10

      2. Sub Purch Info records for matl A & vendor B

      3. Production version SC for matl A with BOM only

      In SCM.

      1. Matl A & locn 10 transfer from R3

      2 Locn B crtd with type 1011 for vendor B

      3. Tr. lane created with SUB contract typr from B toA trfr from R3

      4. Matl A & its BOM item extended to Locn B

      Can you let me know , what setting should I do in Integration module to transfer PPM from R3 to SCM , as I am getting error here when I select radio button Sub contracting PPM

      Is creating & assigning routing to production version is must. As I am not able to transfer PPM for subcontracting for production version for subcontacting matl which does not has routing created or assigned to Prod version

      Appreciate your help.

      Thanks and regards

    Hi Rajesh,

    We had a same scenarion and it can be mapped through the below listed steps:

    For F30 products

    a) use a cif user exit to convert F30 procurement type in R3 to procurement type X in APO

    b) Maintain a production version name "TOLL" in MRP 4 and use the same in the purchase info record in purchaseing data field.

    c) Use IMOD for PPDS PDS and SNP PDS along with PIR and maintain the filter criterion as toll production version for filtering out the F30 products. Also maintain the PDS type to be subcontracting by selecting the radio button. You also need to maintain the vendors here so as to form the PDs at the subcontracting vendor.

    d) Define a special order type category for reciepts SNP Preq for reciepts.

    Hope that should suffice your reqmts.

    If any further query, do let me know

    Warm Regards

      I want to create subcontracting SNP PDS, I ve created the production version Toll containing only BOM, as it is F item.

      I cannot see purchasing data block in subcontracting info record for this material, I have a issue how to create subcontracting PDS at vendor location in APO,

      Requesting you to share some information to resolve this issue.

    Yu cannot transfer PPM without maintaining a routing. You must create a dummy work centre at parent plant. Create routing for parent plant with some timing in the routing. Create production version.

    CIF the work centre first and then CIF sub con PPM.

    You need not maintain special procurement key.

    You have to maintain all products ( Header and components) at subcontractor location.

    • Hi Rajesh,

      You need to have t-lanes Plant --> Sub con location.

      You need to take heuristic run for Sub Con FG at subcon location, which will create planned order at subcon location and therefore dependent demand for child components. The heuristc run for these components at subcon location will create stock transfer PRs with parent plant as source location telling the plant to supply the components.

      The heuristic run at plant for components will create PRs for these components on component suppliers based on T-lanes created by CIFing relevent sch agreements or pur info record.

      In scheduling agreement you can maintain sub con location as delivery location so that the delivery can be done directly from vendor to subcontractor.

      You can run all these steps as a network heuristic after running 'Determine low level codes' transaction.

      Take care.
