Function documentation Subcontract Purchase Requisitions and Purchase Orders 

Use

Caution

Since handling of special stock in Subcontracting for MRO Processes is supported only in the Enjoy transactions for creating, changing, and displaying purchase orders, we strongly recommend you use these transactions instead of the standard transactions.

When you save or release a maintenance order, the system automatically creates a subcontract purchase requisition. The purchase requisition is later transferred into a purchase order. If you do not want to automatically create a subcontract purchase requisition, you can set the Never indicator in the Res./Purc.Req. (Reservation Relevance/Generation of Purchase Requisition) field on the operation level of the PM/CS order. If you make changes to the maintenance order on component level after creation of the purchase requisition, the changes are reflected in that purchase requisition. However, if the purchase order has already been created, these changes are not reflected in the purchase order.

Recommendation

We recommend you make changes to the maintenance order before creation of the purchase order.

You can also manually create a subcontract purchase requisition or a subcontract purchase order. You can order the subcontract rework part in a purchase requisition or purchase order.

In the purchase requisition or purchase order, you can select the subcontracting type, special stock, and, in the purchase order, the serial number. Purchase requisitions do not support serial numbers; however you can enter them in the long text of the purchase requisition.

On the SPEC2000/SC tab page of the purchase requisition or purchase order, you can enter or display the following data for Subcontracting for MRO Processes:

·  Subcontracting type

·  Special stock and its related fields

·  Serial number (only in purchase order)

You cannot use the Stock/Requirements List in MRP to create a subcontract purchase requisition or purchase order.

Purchase Order Only

Each purchase order item has one component specifying the rework part delivered to the subcontractor. This component has the material provision indicator (MPI) set to Rework Material to Subcontractor. You can also enter other components for each purchase order item. These contain consumables that the service provider issues to the subcontractor for use during rework.

You cannot create subcontract purchase orders for scheduling agreements. You can use only one schedule line in a purchase order. Multiple schedule lines are not possible in the purchase order.

The subcontract purchase order does not support drop ship from vendor to vendor.

To post a goods receipt to a purchase order, you have to use the Subcontracting Monitor (transaction code ADSUBCON) or Goods Receipt for Purchase Order (transaction code MB01) functions. You cannot post goods receipt to a purchase order using inbound delivery.

If you provide consumables to the subcontractor in advance of creating the subcontract purchase order, you cannot post the transfer posting to the subcontractor without reference to a purchase order item. All postings have to be made with reference to a purchase order item.

The specific fields for Subcontracting for MROProcesses in the purchase order item can be handled using the relevant BAPIs BAPI_PO_CREATE1 and BAPI_PO_CHANGE. To do this, you can use the interface parameter EXTENSIONIN. If you want to pass one or all of the fields for Subcontracting for MRO Processes, for those fields that you want to pass through EXTENSIONIN, you have to set the following:

Activities

Purchase Order

·  In the Component Overview, you assign material provision indicator (MPI) Rework Material to Subcontractor to the rework material to differentiate between the rework material and the other provided components (consumables); the provided components do not have an indicator.

·  You can:

¡  Enter or change the individual component items for the purchase order item manually.

¡  Generate the individual component items using a bill of material (BOM) explosion if you have stored a BOM for the material in the purchase order item.

During the BOM explosion, all relevant data such as the MPI is copied from the appropriate BOM to the component level of the purchase order. For this reason, you must ensure that the relevant BOM contains all required settings.

The BOM explosion is performed once only for a component in the purchase order item with a BOM. Changes in the component overview are not checked against those in the BOM.
