SAP Apps for Subcontracting (BMY)

Associated SAP Fiori Apps

  • Maintain Bill of Material (F1813)
  • Manage Purchase Orders (F0842A)
  • Monitor Subcontracting Documents (F3095)
  • Subcontracting Cockpit (F2948)
  • Manage Outbound Deliveries (F0867A)
  • Post Goods Movements (MIGO)
  • Create Supplier Invoice (F0859)

Maintain Bill of Material (F1813)

With this app you can find, display, and change bills of material (BOM). The bill of material contains the components to be provided and facilitates the entry of a subcontract purchase requisition or a subcontract purchase order.

Manage Purchase Orders (F0842A)

With the app Manage Purchase Orders (F0842A), you can manage purchase orders to ensure that you receive the ordered items on time, at the correct location, and in the required quantity. With this app, you can manually order materials for stock or for direct consumption as well as services. The displayed list of purchase orders on the initial screen is based on the header level of the purchase order (PO), so the information shown relates to the entire PO. On the overview, you can immediately see the number of overdue items for each PO. Depending on the PO status, you can still make changes such as adding or deleting items, or changing the purchase order quantity.

You create a subcontracting PO item using the item category L (Subcontracting).

The Subcontracting (L) item category determines that you have to provide components to enable the manufacture of a material that you want to order.

The use of the Subcontracting (L) item category has the following effects on a purchase order item:

  • You can create the purchase order item with or without a material master record. If you create a purchase order item with a material number, the specification of an account assignment category is optional.
  • You cannot change the goods receipt indicator. This means that you must post a goods receipt against the purchase order. However, you can deselect the invoice receipt indicator.
  • Non-valuated goods receipt is not possible.
Item categories cannot be changed or redefined.

You can display and maintain the components of a subcontracting item on the schedule line items level.

If you change the purchase order or schedule line quantity, the quantities of the components to be provided are changed proportionally, provided you have not set the Fixed Quantity indicator.

If you change the delivery date the requirement dates of the components are recalculated.

Monitor Subcontracting Documents (F3095)

With the app Monitor Subcontracting Documents (F3095), you can monitor subcontracting documents (purchase orders and scheduling agreements), using filter criteria such as subcontractor, component, material group, assembly, and plant. You can monitor the next delivery due date and the next delivery quantity. You can navigate to the purchase documents item details and to the assembly flow.

In addition to the subcontracting documents, you can also monitor order items from third-party vendors, that is, vendors who are to deliver the components directly to the subcontractor.

Subcontracting Cockpit (F2948)

With the Subcontracting Cockpit app (F2948), you can get monitor the stock and requirements of components per subcontractor using filter criteria such as subcontractor, plant, component, assembly, and material group.

At the component level, you can calculate the stock balance and navigate to the Stock/Requirement List.

At the purchasing document item level, you can create a delivery of components or directly post goods issues.

Manage Outbound Deliveries (F0867A)

With the app Manage Outbound Deliveries (F0867A), you can display and manage your outbound deliveries including the deliveries of subcontracting components.

You can choose each delivery to see its details, such as its weight and volume.

Depending on the current goods issue status, you can post a goods issue for a delivery. If you need to make corrections to a delivery, you can easily reverse the goods issue posting and edit the respective documents.

You can apply these actions to all selected deliveries at once.

For deliveries that need to be picked, you can perform this step on the outbound delivery level where you can directly access the linked Pick Outbound Delivery app.

Post Goods Movement (MIGO)

You use the Post Goods Movement app (MIGO) to post a goods receipt for an ordered material with reference to a subcontracting item.

The system automatically posts the consumption of the components. If the actual consumed quantity of the components differs from the proposal, you can adjust it. This is also possible subsequently.

Create Supplier Invoice (F0859)

You use the Create Supplier Invoice app (F0859) to enter and post a supplier invoice related to a subcontracting purchase order or scheduling agreement.

In the item list, the system proposes all items that correspond to the referenced purchasing documents. The system proposes the quantities and amounts of all items for which goods receipts were posted but not fully invoiced.
