Inspection Stock dependent on Vendor


Does anyone know if you can control whether stock is inspection stock or unrestricted dependent on the vendor ?

I know you can do this using QM info records but we don't want to use inspection lots for one of the scenarios. So we would want:

  • material A / vendor A combination creating inspection lots ...

  • material A / vendor B - creating QI stock but no inspection lots.

I'm guessing that the only way to do this would be messing around with movement types, which we would prefer to avoid.

    hi Alistair,

    You have to create Info record for both Material-Vendor Combination.

    for material A / vendor B "No inspection" will be set.

    and select "Post to Inspection Stock" field in "Purchasing" view in Material Master.

    You will have to clear this stock using MB1B.

    I have not tested this, But I hope this should work. 😊

    • You'd still have an inspection lot to process even though the stock passes through to UR.  Plus you'd still have to use development to assign one inspection type for vendor A and another inspection type for vendor B.

    Hi Alistair,

    for same scenario we have created separate QI records and for material A / vendor A,  QI inspection control will be Inspection active. for material A / vendor B keep setting as a NO INSPECTION. rather than creating inspection lot put control on batch status. i.e. set batch status as a RESTRICTED.

      Hi Alistair,

      NO, Perform GR as per your practice. for material A / vendor B restrict the batch with status RESTRICTED. it will save your efforts to create a inspection lot. I think it will serve your purpose for material A / vendor B
