Hello Sri,

I had googled for this 4 point inspection done in textile industry & found some following info,

4-Point System

The 4-Point System, also called the American Apparel Manufacturers (AAMA) point-grading system for determining fabric quality, is widely used by producers of apparel fabrics and is endorsed by the AAMA as well as the ASQC (American Society or Quality Control).

The 4-Point System assigns 1, 2, 3 and 4 penalty points according to the size and significance of the defect. No more than 4 penalty points can be assigned for any single defect. Defect can be in either length or width direction, the system remains the same. Only major defects are considered. No penalty points are assigned to minor defects.

In this system, one should inspect at least 10 per cent of the total rolls in the shipment and make sure to select at least one roll of each colour way.

Fabric defects are assigned points based on the following:

Total defect points per 100 square yards of fabric are calculated and the acceptance criteria is generally not more than 40 penalty points. Fabric rolls containing more than 40 points are considered "seconds".

The formula to calculate penalty points per 100 square yards is given by:

The following are noteworthy points for this system:

• No more than 4 penalty points can be assigned for any single defect.
• The fabric is graded regardless of the end-product.
• This system makes no provision for the probability of minor defects.
• 4 point system is most widely used system in apparel industry as it is easy to teach and learn.

Though I am not a textile expert I feel the defects which are to be recorded for calculation of the points are important. Finally the points accumulated will decide whether to accept or reject the lot. Is it so in your case too?

Please update whether our understanding is correct or not.

Yes, More information is required. Seems this is related to Vendor evaluation.

What is the basic requirement and scenario? What settings you have already maintained and where do you find yourself stuck up?

Hi Srinivasa

Could you please elaborate the requirement.... If you mean to say 4 point evaluation system is third party software system which your using for quality testing of your fabric.... Then you can integrate this system with SAP through web services and Idocs.
