We manufacture most of our "manufacturable" parts in house. Although, for
some parts it makes more sense to outsource. In this case, we manufacture
all of the components in house through Manufacturing Work Orders, gather
parts and a parts list, and send parts to outsource company along with a PO.
When components are sent out, we execute a misc issue (IS) for all of the
components leaving our facility. Then the finished products are eventually
received back to our stock as a completed weldment on a PO.

This is theoretical. It works well if all persons involved care enough to
play along. If anyone has better ideas, I would be interested as well.

I is common business practice to sub-contract board fabrication. It is also
common business practice to supply some or all of the components for the
fab(less) shop.

I'd like to know how you are handling such an issue. Basically, how do you
supply a vendor components with a PO?

Thanks in advance for your expertise.
