Ext Processing Operation in Production order

What are the steps in processing of an external operation in-between the in-house production operations? also advise how to send raw material to vender and how to recieve finish/ semi-finish from vender during ext processing of an operation? do we need to confirm ext operation in system?

When an operation is performed as external operation, it should have control key related to external processing(standard control key PP02)

once you attach this control key to any operation, you have to maintain data like Purchase info record( if you maintain cost in that), purchasing group, etc. If you are not maintaining purchase info record, you can enter price directly against that operation in external processing tab.

PR gets created when the production order is created and you have to process the PR to get Costs assigned to that Production order.

When the external opeartion has been delivered and do the confirmation for the opreation & do the confirmation for rest of operation also.
