This document defines the steps to setup Outside Processing and the procedure steps to run the OSP process. First you must have setup the OSP Resource and OSP Item. Setting up the item is just like setting up any other item except you must use the Outside Processing Item Template. You must also be sure to let the List Price item attribute for the requisition import process to work properly. Now you need to setup the OSP resource. Use the navigation below to setup the resource. Always setup the OSP resource with a type of “Amount” and the charge type as “PO Receipt” and the UOM to “USD”. Link the resource to the OSP item you setup previously. Make sure the resource is costed and set the rate to 1 dollar. Once you have setup the resource and saved it, you now need to assign it to a department. Use the screen below for navigation. When the department form opens you can query up the department you wish to add the resource too. You can then press the RESOURCES button to open the resources form.

The only differences you will see are the following: When the work orders are released from the workbench, if there are OSP operations, then a background process called “requisition import” will run to create the requisitions for the OSP items. When the OSP items are received, they are NOT received into stock but instead into the Work Order. Below is a flow diagram of the OSP process.
