As we all know, when we order for a finished product with subcontracting order. We need to send the stock to the vendor, or we need to procure from the same vendor.

Let’s think we have sent the stock to vendor through MB1B- 541 movement, now vendor should prepare the final product with your child materials.

The overview of concept explains vendor consumption for subcontracting (More/less), all queries will be related to this only.

Example: Under Consumption: 

let’s take a simple example, we have ordered the final product as shirt and for that we have sent the cloth and thread for making the final product, let see -we have sent cloth of 100 pieces and for making 100 shirts and we sent 100 KG of thread. Now the vendor made 100 shirts with 100 clothes, but he used only 90 kg of thread. Here 10 KG of thread is under consumption.

Step1: Now we post the MIGO 101 for the received goods.

Subcontracting PO- 100 shirts (Post fully), Now check for the remaining materials which are over/under consumed by the vendor. As per our scenario vendor used only 90 kg of thread, Now check how to post for remaining 10kg of thread and how to take back from vendor.

Now we need to make sure that subsequent posting has been done in MIGO-Subsequent adjustment and select the PO and line item, once you enter the subcontracting PO, the line items will be shown in the item overview along with the child materials.

Select the material and make 10 kg in quantity and check the under consumption (In this case we have under consumption) and post the subsequent adjustment.

Now go to MB1B and select the movement type 542, and post for the 10 KG of quantity to bring back the stock of 10 kg from vendor.

Example: Over Consumption:

let’s think we have ordered 100 shirts in subcontracting order by entering components as 100 cloth and 100 kg thread, now vendor has been delivered 95 shirts by consuming 100 cloth and 100 kg thread and for extra 5 shirts we need to send the material to vendor and it can be considered as Over consumption.

We need to follow the same process as I mentioned above, up to MIGO you can follow and next you can check below.

Go to MIGO- Subsequent Adjustment- PO number-Execute
Select the child material which is over consumption and maintain the value of 10 KG
Check the option Over consumption.
Go to MB1B- 541 Movement
Transfer the 10 clothes and 10 KG threads and post.

Even in this quantity if there is over and under consumption follow the same process, please focus on the quantity and logical, so that we can post in MIGO- Subsequent correctly.

Movement Types in SAP MM series Wise:


Note: Anything cancellation will be 1+(E.g.: for 101 cancellation is 101+1=102)

101- Posting goods receipt for the purchase order, when we receive goods normally from the vendor.
102-Cancellation for 101, we need to cancel the movement type fully and repost if any changes required.
103-Posting goods receipt of PO into GR Blocked stock, GR blocked stock means when we receive the excess quantity from supplier, we can move to GR blocked stock and make decision after on this.
104- cancellation of GR blocked stock.
105-release of GR blocked stock to unrestricted stock, directly it will post to unrestricted when we use movement 105.
