 Subcontracting Types

The system determines the subcontracting type from the settings you select for the material provision indicator (MPI) in the PM/CS order.

If you do not use a PM/CS order, you can manually specify the subcontracting type in the purchase requisition or purchase order.

You can assign the subcontracting type to the purchase requisition or purchase order item if that item has item category Subcontracting (EKPO-PSTYP = 3).

The subcontracting type has the following possible values:

Subcontracting Type

Description

Initial

Subcontracting

This is reserved for standard subcontracting. For functions such as serial number or special stock, you can use this subcontracting type.

1

Refurbishment with Unchanged Material Number

During goods receipt, an unplanned serial number change is possible.

2

Refurbishment with Changed Material Number

This is a planned change where the subcontractor is expected to return the same physical part with the same serial number. Physically, the part is the same; however, the material number has changed because the part has been modified during the repair. The serial number can also change during the goods receipt.

3

Replacement

This is reserved for cases with an unplanned material exchange ( UME ), where you change the material and the serial number in the goods receipt. You had not foreseen the change to the material and serial numbers.

This is also used in the forward exchange process where a replacement part will be received from the subcontractor before the part to be repaired has been sent

The system sets this value automatically; you cannot set it.

From the settings in the PM/CS order, the system can determine only subcontracting types Refurbishment with Unchanged Material Number and Refurbishment with Changed Material Number . The system does this as follows:

PM/CS Order Operation

Components of PM/CS Order

Purchase Requisition or Purchase Order

Subcontracting indicator is set

Control key is set to External Operation

Material A : MPI = Rework Material to Subcontractor

The material number on item level equals the material number on component level of the purchase requisition or purchase order, that is A .

The system sets subcontracting type Refurbishment with Unchanged Material Number .

Subcontracting indicator is set

Control key is set to External Operation

Material A : MPI = Rework Material to Subcontractor

Material B : MPI = Rework Material from Subcontractor

The material number on item level is B . The material number on component level is A .

The system sets subcontracting type Refurbishment with Changed Material Number .
