subcontracting

I have a Bill of material ,the structure listed as below:

A(semi finished goods,F,30)

B (trading goods,F),below the A

C(phantom part,E+50),below the A

E(trading goods,F),below the C

F(trading goods,F) ,below the C

Now I want to get the A from vendor after I send E,F to him,and B is provided by vendor himself .and in sap ,I need system generate PR (purchase requirement)for A,E,and F

but no PO(planned order) generated for C,no PR for B

Now system shows to me:

1. I have given the "Y" of Item category to C and have defined C as E50(Procurement typeSpecial procurement),but still have PO generated.

2. A PR generated for B,but I need SAP ignore it,because vendor will buy it by themselves.

I think this is something like assembly subcontracting,but I am not sure is it same or not

Any advices are welcome!

Hi

goto bom of A, select item B, goto item details, next select Status/long text tab. there u can find a field called Mat prov ind. Select L (mat provided by vendor) as value in that field. System will not create PR for B.

For C in bom of A goto item details. Select special procurement 50. Keep explosion type field as blank. Run MRP system will not create PR for C

Pls revert back
