    Hi,

    Try putting the tools as items in the PO as well as free-of-charge items so that they can be goods receipts together with the service item.

    E.g. In the subcon PO,

    Item 1 - service supplied by vendor, with tools supplied to the vendor

    Item 2 - tools to be receipted back - free items with no component.

    When running ME2O, the tools will be issued to the vendor.

    When GR the PO, both service and tools are receipted.

    Hope this helps.

    Phyllis.

    Hi,

    Its quite obvious that Jigs, Fixtures, Tools, etc... you are not providing for a specific Subcontracting PO to the vendor. So it is suggested that don't maintain these materials as BOM Components.

    And also there will not be Transfer Posting for these materials w.r.t. Subcontracting PO. Transfer these materials from own stock to Subcontractor's Stock using movement type 541 in transaction MB1B w/o PO reference.

    And whenever you feel that now these materials are to be taken back from vendor, go to MB1B and do transfer posting again from vendor stock to own using movement type 542.
