Subcontract operations at beginning of process

We're discussing a new process that will involve two subcontract
operations (at different subcontractors) right at the beginning of the
process, before the part comes to us for further work. We'll be buying
raw material for shipment directly to those subcontractors. We're
unsure how to track the flow of material at subcontractors, issue
subcontract POs, receipts etc without our normal visibility. All our
current subcontract operations are in the middle of a process, so it's
easy for us to know shipment & receipts from them.

How are others handling this?
