    Dear Sami

    DO you mean that one of the operation in routing will be a subcontracting inspection(external processing).

    explain the full process at your end . I will give you the stepwise guidance

      Hi gajesh

      Thanks for the quick response

      My design is Create an subcontract info record,in routing one operation is external,( assign vendor), copy of 01 inspection type assign to that material, -

      once Prod.order created, GI and while GR inspect the goods and confirm the operation.

      There is no direct document regarding subcontracting process that is reason why i asked PLM420,

      if you have can you please forward to me or atleast that subcontracting process alone forward to me?

    Dear Sami

    These are the features available for the external processing.

    1) You can plan the operations in an order that are to be performed externally by vendors, using the control key for external processing.

    2) In this case, a purchase requisition is created, when the order is released.

    3) The purchase requisition is converted into a purchase order. The reference to the order remains.

    4 ) If a quality inspection is planned for an externally-processed operation, an inspection lot is created when the externally-processed goods are received.

    To do this. in routing you have to mention a control key with external processing enabled. Double click on the control key and then go to External processing and maintain all the PO related datas and the inspection type.

    When GR is done against the order inspection lot is created

    hope this helps

      Dear Gajesh,

      I had the same problem and i read this thread.

      I have some doubts.

      I activated inspection type 0130 in the inspection feild present in routing(under external processing details)

      When i did GR of WIP from vendor,lot was created.Now i took UD and rejected it.There was no option of stock posting on UD screen.

      Now i want to know what effect will this have on the cost.

    Dear Shreya

    1 ) The inspection lot that will be created like this will not have any stock posting tab

    2) cost accounting can be done through QM order wheren in you can maintain an activity type and an post the time inproportion to the cost
