We purchase material and it is not received here.

It is shipped directly to another vendor to perform service on the material.

After that service, it is physically received here.

How can this process be improved from what is described below to limit the number of transactions required and allow better visibility to the material.

  1. PO to purchase the material.  In notes on this PO, specify where this is to be shipped.  (Outside service vendor)
  2. When Vendor 1 ships to vendor 2, receive the material into Acumatica. (ask vendor to notify us when this occurs)
  3. Create a production order with the outside service (nonstock item and material)
  4. Create PO from the production order for the outside service.
  5. Send it out for service in Acumatica
  6. Receive it into stock on the production order

Set up Vendor 2 as a warehouse,. In the bill for the production order you will make you specify the warehouse as the vendor warehouse.  Then creating the production order will make MRP buy it and ship to the vendor 2 warehouse. Then setting up the bill for 3,4 and 5 will work.  For a non-stock item on the PO to buy the service, set it to backflush so when you do the move it will add that cost to the production order on step 6.
