Service PO for Subcontracting Operation in PP

Hi All,

In PP Subcontracting, Is there a Method to Generate a Service PO for an operation in a Production Order similar to that done in PM?

Thanks and Regards,

    A standard info record (not a subcontract info record!!!) needs to be created. A material number must not be entered in the initial screen (only vendor number, purch. Org., plant). In the general data view of the info record a description and a sort string is mandatory to enter. If freight is part of the costs it has to be entered in the conditions as planned freight.

    Material BOM without any difference to a normal BOM for a product which is manufactured at our own plant.

    Master recipe Here we need a operation with control key for Process manufacturing - external proc.. This operation needs to be linked with the inforecord (go from operation screen via menu Operation>General data) and cost element.

    Hello Dexter,

    Yes, it's possible you just need to define for your operation a control key 'external procurement' (ex : PP02) in your routing or directly in your production order. You also need to indicate a purchase info record with subcontracting type in the operation
