material used by subcontractor in subcontracting process

I have an end product which require 5 sub materials to produce, 4 sub items are supplied by me and one subcontractor is using from his own.

I have a BOM for it. Where in BOM I can specifiy that the the item will be used by the subcontractor and will not be provided by me to him.

Can I specify this in PO if the BOM doesnot have the provision ?

I have to make it clear in the PO what will be provided by me and what will be used by subcontractor

    In subcontract purchase order(item category is 'L') enter the finished product in PO. On bottom section item detail go to material data tab. Click on components icon (right side of screen). You must be in create me21n or change mode me22n. The components icon brings up the default components from the BOM. In this screen you can delete the material that the vendor is suppling. Select the line to remove and go to top EDit -->Delete.

    If you are going to do this often, you can set up a purchasing info record with an alternate BOM without this item and the alternate bom will get picked up when create a PO for the vendor/finished material/plant.

    Hope this helps

    Hi,

    If it is one time, then you indicate in the PO text. If it is going to be regular with this Vendor, then you create Production Version and indicate in the Sub-contracting Info record. During the S/c PO ... this new BOM will explode and get you list of those components which will be delivered to that Vendor.

    Best Regards,

    Suresh

    Dear Friend,

    For this my solution is not to maintain that material in the BOM and raise the purchase order with respect to cost centre for that material or add the price of that material in the service charge itself

    Only what are the material your sending to him those material only you maintain in the BOM and send in subcontracting PO to that vendor,

    Regards

      If I understood rightly, in the subcontracting BOM there is no provision to add the components that are used by subcontractor.

      It has to be as a separate line item in PO or a separate PO. Or can be included along with the cost of service.
