Problem with setting up Subcontracting Manaufacture
Hi, I have a question regarding subcontracting manufacture.....
Usually, we will send several parts to supplier and request for external engineering with formal Puchase order. Once we receive the completed parts from supplier, we will assemble the parts with other parts as further steps to complete the customer order. To make it clearer, there is sample:
Customer orders Product A
We need Product B and C to make 1 A;
and we will provide suppplier product D to make a Product B firstly (a purchase order is requested)
Therefore, in our case, how should we set up the products A-D? and how is the location/BOM/routing? I tried to follow manual but there is no internal move or Purchase order showing out.
Any help is appreciated.

Hi, thank you for help.
I tried BOM, it works but there is no internal move shown as mentioned in OPENERP's user manual.that's why I try to do further.
our company's manufacturing is a bit complicated.
Sorry for not typing Chinese here. No Chinese typing in my office computer.
I copy and paste below the setup process for subcontracting manufacturing in openerp from OpenERP user manual , let us know if you are still facing problems:
Subcontracting Manufacturing In OpenERP it is possible to subcontract production operations (for example, painting and item assembly) at a supplier’s. On the relevant routing document, you have to indicate a supplier location for stock management.
You then have to configure a location dedicated to this supplier with the following data:
[li][i]Location Type[/i]: Supplier,[/li]
[li][i]Location Address[/i]: Select an address of the subcontractor partner,[/li]
[li][i]Chained Location Type[/i]: Fixed,[/li]
[li][i]Chained Location If Fixed[/i]: your Stock,[/li]
[li][i]Chaining Lead Time[/i]: number of days before receipt of the finished product.[/li]
[/list] Once the manufacturing has been planned for the product concerned, OpenERP will generate the following steps:
[li]Delivery of raw materials to the stores for the supplier,[/li]
[li]Production order for the products at the suppliers and receipt of the finished products in the stores.[/li]
[/list] Once the production order has been confirmed, OpenERP automatically generates a delivery order to send to the raw materials supplier. The storesperson can access this delivery order using the menu [i]Warehouse ‣ Warehouse Management ‣ Internal Moves[/i]. The raw materials will then be placed in stock at the supplier’s stores.
Once the delivery of raw materials has been confirmed, OpenERP activates the production order. The supplier uses the raw materials sent to produce the finished goods which will automatically be put in your own stores. The confirmation of this manufacturing is made when you receive the products from your supplier. At that point, you indicate the quantities consumed by your supplier.
Subcontract Without Routing
If you do not use routing, you can always subcontract work orders by creating an empty routing in the subcontract bill of materials.
Production orders are found in the menu [i]Manufacturing ‣ Manufacturing ‣ Manufacturing Orders[/i]. A production order is always carried out in two stages:
[li]Consumption of raw materials.[/li]
[li]Production of finished products.[/li]
[/list] Depending on the company’s needs, you can specify that the first step is confirmed at the acknowledgement of manufacturing supplier, and the second at the receipt of finished goods in the warehouse
Thank you very much.
I think I sort of get that problem solved......
I may have more questions later, hehe.....
Thank you again.
Have a good weekend.
