Standard SAP process for third party repair or subcontracting repair

Hi All,
Please let me know if there is any standard SAP process for third party repair or subcontracting repair.
Given below is the process in brief.
1. Receive the repairable product in the warehouse from customer
2. Do the inspection in warehouse
3. Send the repairable product to the subcontractor to do the repair
4. Receive the repaired product from the subcontractor
5. Send the repaired part to the customer.
6. Bill the customer
Please share your inputs if you have any.
Thanks in Advance.
Regards,
Madhu.

Hi there is no SAP standard process for this. I can give you work around for that.
1.. Receive the repairable product in the warehouse from customer - Normal customer returns or customise a movement type to receive it with our without value as per requirement
2. Do the inspection in warehouse - Normal inspection
3. Create a service PO with the vendor.
4. Send the repairable product to the subcontractor to do the repair - Send using 541 movement type to vendor or use the copy of 541 movement type to send to vendor.(you can refer PO also system does not validate)
5. Receive the repaired product from the subcontractor - Reversal of 541
6. Send the repaired part to the customer.
7. Bill the customer

  • Integrate 'External non-SAP Purchasing Application' with SAP SD for third party purchasing/ drop shipping?

    What is the best way to integrate 'External non-SAP Purchasing Application' with SAP SD for third party purchasing/ drop shipping?
    Details about expected process Flow.
    Receive PO from customer into SAP > SAP SD creates Sales Order > ?? SAP Integrate with External non-SAP Purchasing Application to trigger purchasing > External non-SAP Purchasing Application creates PO, Ships Material to Customer Ship to address (drop ship), Sends Shipping confirmation (FCR) & Invoices to SAP> ??Receive FCR and Invoice in SAP > ?? Initiate SAP Accounts Payable (Vendor Payments) and Accounts Receivable (Customer Invoice) > ?? Update SAP SD Sales Order with shipping status>
    Questions we need to answer;
      - How to achieve '??' steps from above process.
      - What type of Master Data we will need to configure (Say Materials Item Category, Type etc.)
      - Any standards options to configure SAP SD (Type of Sales Order)
      - We certainly don’t want to trigger SAP MM Purchasing (i.e. PR, PO etc.). How can we bypass it.
      - How to make statistical receipts against sales order line items so that SO status will be updated.
      - How to receive Invoice and FCR from External non-SAP app to trigger AP and AR transactions.
      - Are there any SAP standard configurations/ BAPIs/ BADIs available to achieve this integration.
    Any inputs on above questions are appreciable.
    Anand.

    This question is resolved. We ended up activating purchasing module and used purchasing documents PR/ PO to integrate with third party purchasing system.

    THIRD PARTY SCENARIO
    In third-party order processing, your company does not deliver the items requested by a customer. Instead, you pass the order along to a third-party vendor who then ships the goods directly to the customer and bills you. A sales order may consist partly or wholly of third-party items. Occasionally, you may need to let a vendor deliver items you would normally deliver yourself.
    Process Flow
    The processing of third-party orders is controlled via material types. Material types define whether a material is produced only internally, can be ordered only from third-party vendors, or whether both are possible. For example, a material that is defined as a trading good can only be ordered from a third-party vendor. However, if you manufacture your own finished products, you may also want, from time to time, to be able to order the same type of product from other vendors.
    Processing Third-Party Orders in Sales
    Third-party items can be created automatically by the system, depending on how your system is set. However, you can also change a standard item to a third-party item during sales processing manually.
    Automatic third-party order processing
    If a material is always delivered from one or more third-party vendors, you can specify in the material master that the material is a third-party item. During subsequent sales order processing, the system automatically determines the appropriate item category for a third-party item: TAS. To specify a material as a third-party item, enter BANS in the Item category group field in the Sales 2 screen of the material master record.
    Manual third-party order processing
    In the case of a material that you normally deliver yourself but occasionally need to order from a third-party vendor, you can overwrite the item category during sales order processing. For a material that you normally deliver yourself, you specify the item category group NORM in the material master.
    If, as an exception, you use a third-party material, change the entry TAN to TAS in the ItCa field when processing the sales document. The item is then processed as third-party item.
    If address data for the ship-to party is changed in the sales order in third-party business transactions, the changed data will automatically be passed on to purchase requisition and also to the purchase order ,if one already exists. In the purchase order, you can display the address data for the ship-to party in the attributes for the item.
    You can only change the address data for the ship-to party in the sales order for third-party business transactions, and not in the purchase order.
    Processing Third-Party Orders in Purchasing
    When you save a sales order that contains one or more third-party items, the system automatically creates a purchase requisition in Purchasing. Each third-party item in a sales order automatically generates a corresponding purchase requisition item. During creation of the requisition, the system automatically determines a vendor for each requisition item. If a sales order item has more than one schedule line, the system creates a purchase requisition item for each schedule line.
    Purchase orders are created from purchase requisitions in the usual way. For more information about creating purchase orders, see the Purchasing documentation. During creation of the purchase order, the system automatically copies the delivery address of your customer from the corresponding sales order. In a sales order, you can enter purchase order texts for each third-party item. When you create the corresponding purchase order, the texts are automatically copied into the purchase order. The number of the purchase order appears in the document flow information of the sales order.
    All changes made in the purchase order are automatically made in the sales order as well. For example, if the vendor confirms quantities and delivery dates different from those you request and enters them in the purchase order, the revised data is automatically copied into the sales order
    You process third-party items by creating a normal sales order. In overview for the order, you can then overwrite the default item category (TAN in the standard system) with the special item category for third-party items: TAS
    Billing Third-Party Orders
    If relevance for billing indicator for the item category has been set to B (relevant for order-related billing on the basis of the order quantity) in Customizing, the system includes the order in the billing due list immediately. If, however, the indicator has been set to F (relevant to order-related billing on the basis of the invoice quantity), the system does not include the order in the billing due list until an invoice from the vendor has been received and processed by the purchasing department. In the standard system, item category TAS (third-party order processing) has been given billing-relevance indicator F.
    In the first case, the third-party order is considered to be completely billed only when the invoiced quantity equals the order quantity of the sales order item. In the second case, each time a vendor invoice is received, a customer invoice is created for the quantity in the vendor invoice and the order is considered to be fully invoiced until the next vendor invoice is received.
    If you have activated billing-relevance indicator F for item categories in Customizing, billing can refer to the goods receipt quantity instead of the incoming invoice quantity.
    You can control whether the invoice receipt quantity or the quantity of goods received is relevant for billing in Customizing for copying control for billing at item level.
    FOR YOUR PROCESS Individual Purchase Orders WELL GIVE THE RIGHT SOLUTION
    Individual purchase orders are used when your customer orders goods from you that are not in stock and must be ordered from one or more external vendors.
    Process Flow
    During sales order entry, the system automatically creates a purchase requisition item. The purchasing department creates a purchase order based on the requisition and the vendor ships the goods directly to you (unlike third party order processing, where the vendor ships directly to your customer). You then ship the goods to your customer. While the goods are part of your inventory, you manage them as part of the sales order stock. Sales order stock consists of stock that is assigned to specific sales orders and cannot be used for other purposes.
    Goods receipt will be posted when ever the vendor ships the goods to our customer.
    We will do this transaction in SAP using MIGO.
    Invoice receipt is done when the Vendor sends us the invoice.. ( I.e Billing ).
    It can be done using MIRO.
    THe above two steps are standard and manual. There are many other ways that the actual process can happen. If the client follows EDI standards then the Goods receipt and Invoice receipt can be done through IDOCs automatically.

    3. Assign Item Category TAS to Order type that you are going to use.
    4. A sale order is created and when saved a PR is generated at the background
    5. With reference to SO a PO is created (ME21N). The company raises PO to the vendor.
    6. Vendor delivers the goods and raises bill to company. MM receives the invoice MIRO
    7. Goods receipt MIGO
    8. Goods issue
    9. The item cat TAS or Schedule line cat CS is not relevant for delivery which is evident from the config and, therefore, there is no delivery process attached in the whole process of Third party sales.

    Third party order processing is as follows:
    Assume three companies X, Y and Z
    X - The company,
    y - The customer
    Z - Vendor
    When ever X gets a PO from Y to supply some goods, X has an option of either manufacturing those goods or procuring those goods.
    If he is procuring the goods, there are two methods that are generally followed:
    Method 1) After receiving the PO from Y, X creates a sales order against Y.
    Now at the same time he also creates a PO to a vendor Z to produce the goods
    Z produces the goods and supplies to X
    X receives the goods from Z
    Then X delivers the same goods to Y.
    After that X invoices Y and Z invoices X.
    Note : Here there is no direct/ Indirect relation between Z and Y.
    This process is known as Trading Process. and the Material here is created with Material type HAWA.
    The other method is a Third party order processing method:
    Here the glaring difference is that instead of Z supplying the material to X and X in turn supplying the same material to Y.
    X authorizes Z to supply the material to Y on his behalf and notify him once the delivery is complete.
    Now Z supplies the material to Y and acknowledges the same to X.
    Z will send a copy of delivery acknowledgement and invoice to X.
    After receiving the delivery confirmation and invoice from Z, X has to verify the invoice and this process is known as invoice verification and is done in SAP through Tcode MIRO.
    The next step for X is to create an invoice and submit to Y
    Only after the invoice verification document is posted then only X can create an invoice for Y.
    This is the business flow that is followed for third party order configuration.
    There are few steps that have to be configured to enable the system to function as mentioned above.
    Step1)
    If you are always following a third party process for a material then you have to create the material using item category group BANS.
    The procurement type should be marked as External procurement (F) in MRP 2 view of the material master record.
    if you are not always allowing third party order processing then u can create a material master record with item category group as NORM and the procurement type should be marked as ( X) meaning both types of procurement ( in house manufacturing and external procurement).
    Step 2)
    the item category in the order should be manually changed as TAS.
    For that you need to configure the item category determination
    Order type + item cat Group + Usage + High level = Item cat + Manual item cat
    OR + NORM + + = TAN + TAS
    OR + BANS + + = TAS
    Step 3)
    make sure that during the item category configuration for TAS you need to mark relevant for billing indicator as F
    step 4)
    The schedule line category for this type should be CS.
    make sure that you mark subsequent type as NB - purchase requisition in this schedule line category as this will trigger the purchase requisition order immediately after the creation of the sales order and the PO to vendor is created against this purchase requisition.

  • Process demand for third party direct shipment

    Hello ,

    sapman

    Hi Sapera,
    There can be 3 typse of trading scenarios
    1. 3rd party with Shipping notification : Where in u create sales order  and create PO against the PR which si triggered in SAles order adn hen MIGO followed by MIRO and Billing. Here Billing to the end customer can be doen before MIRO because the billign quantity considered is based on the goods Receipt( MIGO) quantity. Many a times you might have your personnels or soem mechanisms to cross verify the delivered quanity as some times the vendor might not dispatch the quantiy in the PO. Here the MIGO doen si consumption posting/Non valuated GR as physically it doenot come into your stock and therefore is not shown in our stock. ITem category used in TAS
    2. 3rd party without shiiping notfication ; Here MIGO is not done and billig ncan be done only after MIRO as the billing quantity is based on the Invocie receipt quantity in MIRO
    3. Bought in items/ Dealer Sales : Here you bring in the materials from the vendor to our depot plant and then dispatch it to the customer . Here PR is geenrated from sales order followed by PO and MIGO. After MIGO you have to do PGI followed by Billing. MIRO doesnot have any impact on the PGI or Billing. Item category used is TAB
    But in all the three instancesthe configurational changes happen in schedule line cateogry and the account assignment which is maintiend in item category and for automatic determination of 2 different schedule line categories we need to maintian 2 different item categories alothough item category settings are almost the same.
    Hope this was helpful in giving you some insights on the trading processes

  • Account Assignment Category for third party process.

    Hi ,
              I would like to use different account assignment category for third party process. This account assignment cat must be assigned at the sales order itself. Is there any config for this.
    Kindly help me.
    Ram.

    You can create new account assignment category for 3rd party process  by copying existing std one 2 in configuration under MM - Purchasing - Account assignment - maintain account assignment category
    You can assign your own set of control for account assignment based on requirement.
    SAP use TAS item catgory in 3rd Sales order which is linked to Pur Req account assignment catgory 2.If you are defining own account assignment catgory than you need to config set-up with TAS sales order item catgory.
    Hope above details will help to move further...sanjay karkun

    Third party Return Process
    If the vendor grants you a credit memo on a quantity or a value basis, you can then send this credit memo directly to your customer.
    The billing type Third-party credit memo (G2S) is available for this. The billing type Third-party credit memo works with the item category TASG (third-party credit memo item). The Billing-relevance indicator F is set in Customizing for Sales for this item category. This means that the cost is not created. In Customizing for Sales, the item category TASG is set at item level in copying control for the billing type G2S (copying control sales document by billing document) as the target item category (source: TAS-> Target:> TASG.)
    Process Flow
    Create a billing documente with billing type Third-party credit memo (for further information, see the section Creating a billing document in the Billing document). Enter the third-party order as a document still to be processed. The quantities are automatically removed from the invoice.
    The above is the process for giving a credit memo which can be adapted for return goods.
    Hope it will help you

  • Component included in SAP NetWeaver Foundation for Third Party

    Hi Experts,
    Now, our team discussing on how we can use integrate based on ABAP Technology to integrate Enterprise Systems.
    Then, we discovered the License, that SAP delivered, "SAP NetWeaver Foundation for Third Party".
    I heard this license allows client to develop custom applications on standalone NetWeaver Application Server(ABAP/Java).
    I think that the ABAP instance contains SAP_BASIS and SAP_ABA, and I have information that it allows to use also BRFplus,
    but it is a little vague what function can be used.
    Does anyone knows what component is included that license?
    Especially, we want to know whather we can use NetWeaver Gateway with  standalone NetWeaver Application Server or not.
    Best Regards,
    //Naoya Tsugo

    Well, the box is checked for that, so I have to assume that it is included.
    What is the confusion?

  • How to know Delivery Note no. for Third Party sales

    Hello Experts,
    I am configuring Third party sales process.and got the suffcient help from old posts.But i got stuck in MIGO step.While doing MIGO we have to enter PO and Delivery Note No so where to find delivery note no.?
    Another confusion is, In some of the posts in community,for third party sales configuratuion MIGO is one of the step while in other similar posts there is no MIGO step instead they have shown direct MIRO after PO creation so which i should follow ?
    Thanks in advance
    Regards,

    Do you really just follow what others have posted and do not double check with the SAP documentation and even more important with your business needs and some logical thoughts?
    In all our >750 plants is a guy who receives the material that is coming in, he compares the paperwork with the goods and then enters the receipt in SAP.
    This is the normal and logical process of a receipt in your warehouse.
    And now compare this with a 3rd party sales, where the goods are shipped from your vendor directly to your customer.
    The warehouse guy does not get any papers from a truck driver, he can't count any goods before he could do something in SAP, he does not even know about this order. And exact this situation is the basis for the standard design: no goods receipt, just invoice.
    And any deviation is made because of some special requirements (legal and country specific, or just because of an almighty finance department which can't understand that some of their requirements do not make much sense in logistics. e.g. mandatory 3way matches PO - GR - IR which is not worth the name if you force warehouse people to make theoretical receipts which physically never happened and cannot be verified.

  • Item category used for third party

    Gurus,
    need to know the item category used for third party process and its determination, kindly help.
    thanks
    SP

    Dear Partasarathy,
    there are three different processes within the third-party.
    The usual third-party process (the delivery will be made directly from the third-party partner). The item category here is TAS in the standard.
    The individual purchase order (the delivery will be done from third-party partner to SD-partner and then the normal delivery will be created from the sales order). The item category here is TAB in the standard.
    The ALE-process is the third-party process where the purchase order (not only the purchase requisition) will be created after saving the sales order. The item category here is ALES in the standard.
    I hope, this additional info helps you further.
    Kind regards,

  • Distribution channel for third party sales

    Hello Gurus,
    May I know what is the distribution channel or type of it I should or could use for third party sales order creation?
    I have configured the ITC etc but not sure the distribution channel to use from the standard SAP provided ones.
    Or I can use any without affecting the process?
    regards
    Bass

    You can use any without affecting the process.
    3rd party process is controlled by - item cat. group, item category, schedule line cat., etc.
    At some places, separate order type or dist ch are used only for Reporting purpose.
    Thanks

  • Plant Determination for Third Party Material as Child Item in Sales Order

    Hi All,
    We have an issue with the Plant Determination for Third Party Material as Child Item in a Sales Order.
    Even when a Delivering Plant is maintained for the child item which is a Third Party Material, the plant of the Parent Item is only populated as the Default plant in the Sales Order
    Can someone explain the reason behiind this determination.
    P.S.- For all non -Third PartyChild Items (with non-Third Party Item Catefory & Material Type), the Plant is population correctly as per Delivering plant in Material Master.
    TIA.
    Regards,
