SAP PP- routing operations
If we have several operations to produce a component say 0010 to 0090.
In this sequence operations 0010 & 0020 are carried in-house,
and after this is sent for Sub-contractor for processing 0030 & 0040.
Then materials received fm Sub-contractor & operations 0050 to 0090 are carried again in-house .
So pls tell me how this situation is handled in PP( if possible mention the Goods movements also)
Thanks in advance

It is better to break the material into multiple materials based on the value addition, so that it becomes easy for controlling and monitoring the Inventory.
In your example
Material A is converted to Material B - Operation 10 and 20. - Production Order.
Material B is converted to Material C - Subcontract Purchase order.
Material C is converted to Final Product - Operation 50 to 90. Production order.
You can alternatively assign Control Key PP02 for creating external processing operation for 30 to 40, and for remaning operations normal Inhouse production control key.
