Outside Operation processing is used to account for a service performed on an item on a work order. The outside operation purchase order is not created for a part, but it is created for 'services' provided by an 'outside' company to complete an operation step in the work order routing. There is no stock movement, or stocking of an outside operation item. Common terms describing this functionality include subcontract, sub contractor, *OP, Routing Quantities and Status Window (P3103).
Outside operations are only created when associated with a work order. Purchased items are not considered. If users require services to be performed against purchased items, JDE recommends using the work order as a method to withdraw raw material from stock, to send to the supplier, and allow the routing to create the purchase order on the service provided.
The outside operation PO number is displayed on the Work Order Routing line in Related Order column and the document type is displayed in PO Type column. The PO Number is stored in the Work Order Routing table (F3112) Related Order field (RORN).
This document covers the required setup, process steps and accounting process for successful outside operation execution.
Any user that is involved with the outside operation process benefits from this information.
