Subcontracting Semifinished Product, without providing component to Subcon.

Dear all

I have the following scenario for subcontracting, all involvoing placing Subcon PO for Semifinished Product, GI raw materials and GR Semifnished Product back for further production processing in the own factory.


My factory places a subcon PO for chroming a raw metal (FG = Chromed Metal). We only provide the raw metal but do not provide the Chroming paint (GI only raw metal to subcontractor), Subcontractor will use their own Chroming paint. After chroming the raw metal, we will perform a GR for Chromed Metal from the subcontractor.

My question, how do we tackle this in subcontracting? As we never provide the Chroming Paint. Does it mean I create a single item single level bom and at the time of Invoice verification, I will put in 2 lines item Subcon Service + Chroming Paint?

Please advise.

your Q1 is:

just changed the BOM Header to put HALB (Chromed Metal) and Component as ROH - right

Your Q2 is : will only GI Raw Metal (ROH Material in BOM Component) and then GR the HALB, that is it- this also right.

""you can as well go ahead with subcon itself?". the question mark here is by mistake -sorry.

with the above BOM settings you can safely go ahead with SUbcon orer.

Go ahead-
