3rd Party Material Procurement for a Project



Scenario - is that we want to procure material form 3rd Party, and this 3d party will directly suppply material at project site.

I am creating a project and assigning few materials that are to be directly supplied by the vendor at project site. So i assume that i need to assign this material as NON STOCK ITEM and get PR created... this PR will be converted to PO and we need to do MIGO to recieve the material as Project stock.... -

Can some one please confirm is this is correct flow?

Now the material i need to procure is also existing as a stock item and also has a material number defined in the system; so when i assign this materials as Non stock item on Actiity i get an error message "Material XXX " is incompatible with the item category".

I want to undestand how do we treat such a material to be directly procured for project?

Thanks in advance.

Warm Regards,
