Subcontracting with discontinued parts

Former Member
0 Kudos

We use discontinuations all the time but now we are fully subcontracting some products and the discontinuation is not being planned for either the old part or the new part. SAP help clearly says that subreq discontinuation is not planned but with several parts at any one time on boms of over 200 parts, we just can't manually manage this.

I don't believe we are the only one with this problem but I am unable to find any solution - please help!

Thanks

Hi Donna,

List out all the discontinued components, and make use of the Safety Stock in Material Master MRP 2 view, as this much quantity you can always maintain by MRP.

Hi Krishna,

Thanks for your reply but I don't understand how safety stock would work. Are you suggesting loading safety stock against the new part?

We have 12+ weeks lead times and constantly changing forecasts. The discontinuation worked very well in managing the old part down to zero stock with all the variables involved but safety stock is a fixed figure?

Please advise.
