subcontractor : two methods of sending?
We are subcontracting an assembly. To make this assembly 10 components are being assembled at subcontractor end. Due to increase in requirement we are required to add one more subcontractor. But at the two different subcontractors we have two methods of sending required components, which are as under.
Subcontractor-1: In this case we are sending 5 components out of 10 components to subcontractor and rest 5 are being added by subcontractor, its own.
Subcontractor-2: In the second case we are required to send 6 components out of 10 components and rest 4 will be added by subcontractor.
At present as we have business only with subcontractor-1 so we have maintained u201CSpecial Procurement Type: 30u201D for assembly, MRP Type: PDu201D for the 5 components send by us and u201CMRP type: NDu201D for 5 components added by subcontractors.
Please tell me that what settings are required to run both the scenarios simultaneously.

1. You have to create two BOMs for the same F-30 material. In this case you will have to alternative BOMs.
2. You have to create two production versions and assign one alternative BOM to each production version.
3. You have to assign one production version to each subcon info record.
And please delete from the BOMs those components that are provided by yor subcontractor. The production BOM should contain only those materials that is provided by you. And all of such components should be defined as 'PD'.
(in this case you will have one BOM with 5 components and one BOM with 6 components)
