Dear All

I have a problem in defining "Material Provided by Customer".I have created a matl of type"UNBW" .Further I have included this matl in the BOM of another FERT matl.On the item tab of BOM I have choosen the matl under ref.Then in the "STATUS and LONG TEXT" tab page

under the "FURTHER DATA " box when i choose the matl provision indicator and choose the code matl provided by Customer system is accepting.But after MRP run system is not showing anything about the customer matl.

When I went back to BOM and checked the box for matl Provision in F1 it shows that the "INDICATOR IS NOT ACTIVE FOR THE CUSTOMER SUPPLIED MATL.

What could be wrong.We are using SAP ECC 5.0

With best regards

Dear Mr. Prasobh

Thank you for yr reply. How do I go about defining "Material Provided BY Customer" in SAP.Our customer does lots of sub-contracting jobs where their customer provides material.

Hi Surya,

Create the Sales Order with sales BoM. Then do GR for others and select the Movement type 501 (without PO) and special stock as E (Sales order) usually known as 501E Movement type. Mention the sales order and item no mentioned in Sales Order for which you want to receive.

Receive the material and do the production.

Hope it will be useful. Kindly mention if so.

Hi Surya,

That field is still not being used by SAP for identifying Customer supplied materials. It is only for future use of SAP.
