When selecting the resource by capability scheduling or by any other manual scheduling methods the Vendor that is used to create the subcontracting purchase order must be derived from the scheduled resource, not taken from the BOM line (or: the Vendor in the BOM line needs to be updated before firming the planned order).

The simplest way to achieve this would be to update the BOM line for the operation service before or during the firming of the planned order:

- Update the Vendor in the BOM line if the scheduled resource holds another vendor
- Delete the BOM Line if the scheduled resource is NOT a vendor resource

Obviously, the ideal solution would be to update the Vendor in the BOM line in the Resource Scheduling directly (but that might pull in additional complexity based on the question of what master data may be required for that, and what happens if no BOM line for a service is existing ....)
