Sending tools to subcontractor and return.

Post by Gdc » Thu Sep 20, 2007 10:13 am

Dear All,

We need to sent a Tools to subcontractor along with Componnets required for subcontracting porcess.
Here the Tools sent are return basis, and need the documentation what, how much sending, to which vendor sending. While doing 541 movement we need to specify as tools or in PO itself need to assign these tools as component, but it should not consumed as Child item while do the GRN. It will return basis, and if it is not retrun, can be able get information in system.

Please clarify, how it can be done.

Regards
Chandradhara.

There is not only one solution, there is multiple 'tricks' to fulfill the requirement.
you could do a 541 for sending and a 542 for returning.
You could also setup your vendor as a storage location and make some 311 mvts.

Another possible solution is to create additional subcontracting PO items for the tools themselves with a GR at price zero.

Dear Bart

We need to have link, when ever the MRP runs along with Components, tools also to be assigned or in PO need option to assign tools along with components, so that when where the 541 done system also ask tools to issue. But it will be returnable.
Please suggest what needs to be followed in this case.

Try looking into the available user exits in the PO and at the moment of GR, in order to add the needed lines/data and to give warnings and/or errors when needed.

When you include the tools in the components list of a subcontracting PO item, the problem you'll have is that the tools are consumed as well at the moment of GR of the finished product and thus the value of the tools will be included in the value of the received goods.

The only way you can receive the tools again in stock after the subcontracting is done is to use separate recursive subcontracting lines in the purchase order (the component is the same material as the material to be received) and that at subcontracting price zero (or the value of the tool will go up after every subcontracting GR).
The only way to achieve that the users don't forget to add these lines is either to add them by means of ABAP or by having a check programmed in the user exits available in the PO that the lines are included.

For the GR a similar check should be programmed. You could check whether any tools were included in the subcontracting PO for which you do a GR.
