produce outside (at vendor place) and component materials are given to vendor with a subcontracting
Purchase Order. Vendor produces the Product and supplies the Product to plant.

Process Flow:

1. Create material master for Header material ( Product ) and component materials – MM01
2. Make settings in Header material’s material master MRP 2 view for subcontracting. – MM02
3. Create BOM for Header material – CS01
