QM Different Inspection types with the same Inspection Origin

Dear Gurus,

We have requirements to have different Inspection types from the same Inspection Origin (in our case, from production - 04).

In addition we will have other system for production execution which will be interfaced to SAP to run MFBF (repetetive manufacturing) to make GR.

In this additional system we will have rules, which Inspection type should be triggered when, i.e.:

1) Every 1000 PC Inspection type A

2) Every 333 PC Inspection type B

So we have also rules, that to Quality stock only some GR should be posted..

So: how we can trigger different Inspection types during GR? Is only option:

1. Go within Interface to material master data, change preffered Insp. type

2. Go to Quality level to change current level to Inspection

3. Make GR?

Do you have any suggestions?

    I would set up your different inspection types in the material master and activate all of them.  You can set up for instance two 01's, identical except for the post to inspection stock indicator.

    Or you set up three 01 inspection types each with a different plan usage so they can all have their own inspection plans.

    Or you can have one inspection type and simply assign plans based on lot size.  One plan for 0 - 300 units.  A different plan for 301 - 1000 units, and another plan for >1000 units.  If you want the material to simply pass through QI use a plan with one optional character and set up the auto UD to process it through with no user intervention.

    If combinations of the above aren't enough, look at using the following user exits in influence what you need.

      QAAT0001 Inspection type determination different from variant 01       QAAT0002 Control of acceptance lots/goods receipt                      QPAP0001 Enhancement - plan reading                                  QPAP0002 Enhancement for material/plan assignment, plan selection   

    The exits should allow you to apply whatever logic you want to use to select the inspection type to be used.  (QAAT001) or whatever plan you want (QPAP0002).

      We are doing more GR per one order. So first for 5, second for 10, etc. And combined quantity is 15 - so I wanted to have different inspection plan for combined quantity.

      But ok, we solved this with changing Quality level before each GR (for manual control over inspections) and to other system to control automatic inspection every fixed quantity.

    Hi Jerzy,

    Do you adopt different inspection practice on both occasions? If not, then why do you need different inspection types ? 

    To get inspection lots for 333 and 1000 pcs, you can use DMR functionality for 04 inspection type only and can skip all the inspection lots in between.

    This way you get these two pcs in QI stock and can also do the RR and UD.

      Hello ntn,

      Thanks for answer. Yes, we have different inspection practice.

      DMR is working only on GRs, not on quantity of GR.
