Easiest way to handle outbound material returning after rework/repair
Our current process for NonConformances that have a return to supplier for rework disposition is pretty tedious. Wanted to know if there was an easier way.
Example. Ordered Qty 100, 5 were nonconforming and sent back for repair.
Process VRA from original PO for return of 5 units. Reference NCMR on VRA
- Come back to NCMR and disposition with VRA #
Issue new Purchase Order for qty 5 so we can do an item receipt when goods return. Reference the VRA, NCMR, previous PO#, and supplier RMA number on the PO.
Have vendor issue a credit memo on the original PO, and issue a new invoice on the new PO for when parts return to company.
Even though the steps are only 4, it adds a lot of paperwork for Accounts Receivable and Purchasing. Is there an easier way?
