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.

    Hello Ronald,

    In this case select the externally processed operation and in the detail screen choose the "External processing" tab. Here change the conversion of UOM values as Rtg=100 equal to operation qty=80.

    This will update the PR accordingly.

    Hope this is clear.

    Hi Ronald,

    That auto created PR will not have any material code reference i guess.

    I hope you are processing that with a dummy non valuated material code to vendor.

    When the purchasing guy convert the existing PR into PO, he can change the qty.

    No need to delete the PR and re create i guess.

    Hi Ronald,

    You can have Assembly scrap of the material as 20 % in MRP1 screen.

    When you to produce 100 pc, since 20 pcs go as scrap - you are left only with 80 pc.

    If you maintain 20 % as assembly scrap, system will make the production order of 100 to 120, considering the scrap. By which after leaving 20 pcs scrap, you have the production of 100 pcs.

    Hope this will resolve your problem.

    Regards,
