third party & subcontracting combine

Dear Experts,

I am having the following scenarios:

Customer C1 send the PO for Material F1 that i am not producing.

So i send the Raw Material M1 reqd for F1 to Vendor V1 that he directly ship to Customer C1 and invoice to me. Accordingly i bill to Customer.

So it is a scenario of third party & subcontracting combine.

Please tell me how to handle such scenario along with all the accounting & excise effects.

Plz suggest

you cannot use both functionalities together, because SAP puts both into the item category (quite a big lack of functionality in SAP).

Since subcontracting is more complex (automatic background postings), you should use item category for subcontracting and manually (or user exit) change the delivery address to that of the customer so that the vendor physically ships direct to the customer. Technically in SAP you need to post normal GR plus delivery and GI to the customer as if it would go through your warehouse.
