QM Early Inspection Lot 04 Not Created

I am attempting to create an early inspection lot for type 04 related to a production order. I have assigned and activated 04 inspection type to the material master. I have set the Control for Insp to Early Inspection lot for order item. I have defined the necessay production master data for BOM's and Routing and I have define and inspection plan for type 5 Goods Receipt that is release, has Master Inspection Characteristics assigned and the check produces no mesages, wrnings or errors.

I manually create a production order for a quantity and schedule the order. The BOM and Routing are pulled in without issue. When I release the order, I do NOT see the Preparing Quality message and when I save the order. The routing is one step so no confirmations have been made yet but parts are being produced so I go to results recording QE51N for the material with inspection lot origin 04 but no lot is presented for results recording. I would expect to see the early created lot. Any suggesttions are appreciated.

    If the usage was incorrect you should still get the inspection lot. You just wouldn't get an inspection plan assigned. The lot would have a status of CRTD and not REL.

    I suspect maybe that the order was created but not released prior to you activating the inspection type.

    Also.. PLEASE.. go back and double check that the indicator "Active" is ticked on for inspection type 04 in the material master inspection setup. Everyone misses doing this at least a few times when adding new inspection types. It's one reason I encourage people to use QA08 to add the inspection types, even if you are doing just one material.

    and I have define and inspection plan for type 5 Goods Receipt that is release,


    Change the Usage to 1 (Production) and status to 4 (Released (general)).

    You use 5 for GR, commonly for 01 inspection type.

    Please refer below snap shot for required settings,

    Rerun a scenario and you'll get the inspection lot.

    Do we get CRTD batches in QE51N? I don't know I didnt use it that much so cant remember. May be lots are getting generated but due to system status not REL, they are not visible in QE51N. First re check what Mr Craig has suggested, then check for any CRTD insp lot in QA32.

    Rerun a new test case with all correct settings.

    Hi Brad,

    Of all the suggestions discussed here, you need to check following,

    • Inspection type 04 is 'active' in material master QM view for this material. This is what you have to cross check again.
    • Correct your usage in the inspection plan. Change it to 1 from 5 as I shown in snapshot earlier. This is one reason you don't see an inspection lot in QE51N because even if your lots are generating, they are creating with CRTD status and thus not visible.

    Once inspection type is active and correct usage is assigned, create and release a new production order. You would get the early inspection lot for RR in QE51N.

    • Hi Evguenia,

      I agree with your concern but what Mr Craig has earlier said is also correct. You said usage 1 only works with 03 but not 04. This is not correct !!

      I myself using usage 1 for inspection type 04. You can see from the further posts on this thread that basic fundamentals for the usage and inspection types are appropriately discussed and well understood. Yes, this is an open forum for all and one can surely participate and express the views but please, it is not meant to get provoked, not at all 😊

      I have done few mistakes in the past by making incorrect/half statements and I was immediately informed by esteemed members of this forums, but I took that as an input and enhanced my knowledge. I never took it other way.

      We all here for learning and assist other, not for some competition. Please remain calm and be with us to learn and help each other 😊
