Subcontracting scenario in PP

Hi Experts,

In subcontracting there are 2 scneraios..

1) HALB1 has special procurement key 30- Subcontracting. Components of this HALB are supplied by main plant.SAP Help says one should maintain special procurement key - Stock Transfer from Plant to MRP Area and planning for subcontractor should be done using MRP Area segment.

Is it obligatory to make use of MRP area planning for this scenario? If no and if we can plan it at plant level also then are we supposed to maintain special procurement key for components.

2) HALB1 has special procurement key 30- Subcontracting. Components are supplied by third party to subcontractor. SAP help says we should define special procuremnt key - External procuremnt for componenst and should plan in MRP area.

Is it obligatory to make use of MRP area planning for this scenario? If no and if we can plan it at plant level also then are we supposed to maintain special procurement key for components.

Thanks

    Just F 30 as procurement key for HALB1 should be required. In the first case, once you have created the subcontracting order you can supply components (regardsless of they are ROH or HALB) to the third party with ME2O or similar. In the other case, the delivery address for your component supplier should the subcontractor address and you should be making the component receipt direct in subcontractor.

    Hope this helps.
