    How can I return to vendor a subassembly that is not in the purchase order?

    1373078

      Hi all,

       

      We have below issue and would appreciate any ideas to handle below scenario:

       

      Scenario

      Our company buys from vendor assembly P000-01, which has installed sub-assembly P000-02. Buyer enters a purchase order for assembly P000-01, this PO is fully received and invoiced. However during manufacturing is discovered the subassembly P000-02 is damaged and company wants to return to vendor only this subassembly instead of the entire assembly.

       

      Issue

      - How the subassembly of a purchased item, which doesn't have a PO, can be returned?

       

      I would appreciate any ideas and best practices to handle this scenario.

      Thanks,

      Iliana

          I would suggest the following assuming that you will get replacement of the

          subassembly from the vendor.

           

          - Add an OSP operation to a work order.

          - Attach the subassembly item to the OSP operation.

          - Make a WIP move (Queue) to the OSP operation.

          - This will create a requisition for the subassembly item.

          - Make sure it is $0 line and convert the requisition to a PO.

          - Receive the PO when supplier provides the replacement.

           

          Bottomline is - treat the replacement as an OSP operation and track the

          entire supplier related transaction/communication through Oracle Req/PO at

          zero cost.
