Subcontracting process in SAP Business ByDesign
Hello dear colleagues and partners, today I want to share some exciting news about one of our most successful products.
A little background:
As part of our journey with SAP Business ByDesign, some customers come back with feedback about a functionality that is not currently implemented in the system, what we usually do is take those feedbacks from several sources, collect them and eventually work on getting those requirements to actual solutions.
One topic that always comes around is the Subcontracting process, as you can see in this blog post: Subcontracting in SAP Business ByDesign – Part II by Stefan Resag

Subcontracting Add-On for SAP Business ByDesign
With SEIDOR’s Product Subcontracting Add-On, businesses can easily create and manage subcontracting purchase orders, track production progress, and monitor subcontractor performance. This intuitive solution helps ensure that businesses always have a clear view of their production process, enabling them to make informed decisions and react quickly to any issues that may arise.
One of the key features of our Product Subcontracting Add-On is its ability to automatically generate purchase orders based on production orders. This eliminates the need for manual data entry, reducing the risk of errors and saving businesses valuable time and resources.
As you can see in the image attached, the Purchase Orders are created automatically, and you can select if you want one or multiple Orders created depending on the scenario.
This allows the receipt of the material to also be automated, the quantities of the stock are also updated, this reduces time and effort from users.
