Sub Contracting purchase order scenario not working with SNP

We are carrying out sub contracting purchase order scenario in APO. We have done following master data settings for it.

1)Product in DC been procured from vendor X.

2)Special procurement key for subcontracting in ECC maintained at Material master at DC.

3)Purchase info record for this material as subcontracting.

4)CIF

a. DC

b. Vendor

c. material at DC

d. purchase info record

5)Tlane of Subcontracting (Source = Vendor, Destination = DC)created by CIF of PIR.

6)Material is not maintained at vendor location.

When we take SNP Heuristic run at DC, purchase requisition gets generated and after sending it to ECC its item category appears as u2018blanku2019. The source of supply is determined as vendor during SNP heuristic run.

But at the same time when we take PP heuristic, it generates Purchase requisition and after sending it to ECC its item category appears as u2018Lu2019.

We want to have item category L but with SNP Heuristic.

We also tried this scenario with sub contracting planning book, but it didnu2019t work.

Thanks & Regards,

Chetan

    Hi Chetan,

    You have transferred vendor through CIF in APO, implying vendor is created as a location in APO.

    Therefor it appears that you would like to have subcontracting in SNP with vendor location in APO.

    Then material should be maintained at the vendor location with the ppm.

    Regards

      Hi Datta,

      As per your suggestion, I maintained product and PPM at vendor location and took SNP Heuristic, but it didn't plan any purchase requisition and gave the message '2 location product(s) was/were processed'.

      I have two questions

      1) Without planning any purchase requisiton, how system gave the message '2 location product(s) was/were processed'?

      2) How PP Heuristic is creating Purchase requisiton with item category 'L' without any PPM and product at vendor location?

      Thanks & Regards,

      Chetan
