Subcontracting - Direct delivery with MRP and Scheduling agreements
can anyone suggest where I am going wrong.
I have a sub con assembly A that is made up from parts B and C.
The source of supply is:
A by VENDA
B by VENDB
C by VENDC
I do not want part B arriving on site as it is situated next door to the sub con plant. (however I might want to stock it for spare purposes later)
So I would like to send Part B directly to VENDA
I have set up a scheduling agreement for part B for VENDB and I have changed the delivery tab to VENDA and ticked the SC vendor option.
My problem is that when I run MRP I get a planned order for Part B and not a schedule line. If I remove the tick then I do indeed get a schedule line.
I have read a few posts that indicate that this can only be done via MRP areas (which we dont have).....is this really true??
