Symptoms

On 12.0.6 in Production:
You create a Work in Process (WIP) job, with several Outside Processing (OSP) items. Some of these items, belong to the same vendor, so when you see the purchase requisitions, you would like to see the items grouped by vendor. In order to do that, you configured the group by parameter in the Requisition Import program to vendor, however the system creates one requisition per item.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------------------
Expect the system to create one requisition per vendor with several items per vendor.

-- Steps To Reproduce:
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Login as Manufacturing and Distribution Manager
2. Navigate to Bills of Materials > Routings
3. Create a routing that contains multiple OSP resources attached to the same operation.
4. Navigate to WIP > Discrete > Discrete Jobs, click new
5. Enter the job details and save it in released status.
6. Navigate to Purchasing > Purchase Orders > Autocreate
7. Notice that multiple requisitions have been created for the same vendor.
