How to modify the quantity of the outsourced manufacturing PR


Hi All,

We just got an issue about the outsourced manufacturing PR in PP module.

That is, for example, we need to produce finished product A 100 pcs.

Product A has 5 operation task in the routing.

Since that operation 30 of product A is an outsourced manufacturing task.

So when the production order is created, the outsourced manufacturing PR is also created automatically.

And in that outsourced purchase requisition, the outsourced quantity 100 is fixed.

However, scrap happen normally in the operation 10 and operation 20,

the scrap happen before the outsourced manufacturing task 30,

therefore the actual quantity need to be outsourced is different from the original one.

ex. after the operation 10 and 20, the actual quantity need to be outsourced is 80 pcs not 100 pcs.

When we meet this situation, we suggest the user to close the original PR and create the new one.

but indeed, this is really lousy task for user.

Anyone has any good idea and solution for this issue ? Plz give me some suggestion, thanks a lot.
