Third party subcontracting

Hi All,

I came across with a new functinality Third party subcontracting. It is mix of sub contracting and a third party process.

The only difference technically here is inspite of creation of a third party order it creates a subcontracting order.

Another important aspect is the subcontractor directly sends the finished material to the customer directly inspite of sending it back to the plant.

This is new addition in EHP5 package of SAP also known as Outsourced Manufacturing 2 in ERP operations (LOG_MM_OM_2)

Process steps:

1) Creation of a sales order and creation of PR automatically.

2) Subcon PO creation from the sub con PR.

3) Creation of a outbound delivery to the subcontractor.

4) Creation of a goods receipt (if required)

5) Creation of an Invoice.

6) Creation of a billing doc.

Effect in Sales.

Item cat : TADS (subcontracting DS)

Item cat group: BADS(subcontracting DS)

Assignment of Item cat:

Sales order (SO)+BADS+TADS+(TAS, manual item cat)+TAN (manual item cat)
