The parameters that control subcontracting operations are defined.
Subcontract operations applies when one or more of the operations in a product structure is subcontracted and one or more of the operations is done inside your own factory.
For example, in the manufacturing of a chair, the cutting and the gluing operation may be done within the factory while painting is subcontracted. This way of working with subcontracting is called subcontracted operations.
The workflow is usually administrated through a manufacturing order.
