How to handle standard cost for parts that are purchased and manufactured

I’m looking for thoughts on how to handle the following scenario:

We have components that we manufacture inhouse, but also outsource.  In house, we do standard production orders against a BOM, which generates our standard cost. But, we also outsource these items.  Currently, we outsource these components 95% of the time.  Because we have BOM for these parts, out standard cost generates whenever we Cost Roll our BOM, but I really need our cost to reflect the PO cost of these items, or a avg of the 2, since we are 95% outsourced.  I’d prefer to keep the BOM active for our flexibility.

Our company has a similar issue.  We have 2 branches, one manufactures and sells to the second. 

As noted, the source (P or M) is not considered on the Master or Site level when performing a Cost Roll/Update Pending sequence.

We modified that process to only update pending when the source is M at the Site level by changing the Update Pending process.  We set the supplying site to M (with a specified BOM) and the purchasing site to P (no BOM).  The manufacturing branch is updated by the update pending,but the purchasing branch is not 

This took a customization to the BOM Cost Roll graph to accomplish this.

Are you referring to Purchased under Planning Settings in the Manufacturing tab of the Stock Item table?  I’ve tried that, but when I Roll Costs for all of my BOMs, it overrides the cost.  The main issue is I have too many BOMs/Components to manually ignore them when rolling costs.

@claudematherne24 - have you tried setting the item to Purchased? You could still manufacture the item when needed.
