Quality lot not updating with Variant config specs

Hi Friends,

I am facing an issue with VC part, please
provide your inputs.

Scenario: We have material sub contracting
process with VC.

Creating a PR, then convert to Purchase order. While doing the GR, system is

creating a Quality lot as per the Inspection Plan.

Requirement: We

maintained a Variant table, while creating PR, system is picking the values

from my variant table but At the time of Quality lot generation, It is picking

it from Quality lot. We want system to pick the values from the Variant table.

Process we are following:

Maintained the Variant table and all VC

Created Class characteristic: We don’t want
to maintain the
values in Class characteristic, so we left it blank, It has to pick it from the

Variant table. Char format is ‘NUMBER’

MIC: Creating an MIC with reference to the

characteristic, Control indicators are coming blank, (this might be the issue

we are anticipating)

Maintained Inspection plan with spec limits

While doing the GR for the Purchase order,
system generating

an inspection lot but it is coming from the Insp Plan not from the Variant

    I could be wrong but I think VC in QM only works with the SD side, not purchasing side. In a nut shell, to drive the VC in QM you create the "product" via the sales order. The sales order drives MRP which if the material is purchased, creates the purchase req. and then of course the order. When receipted, than the 01 lot should pick up the VC testing requirements.

    I'll be honest and say that I'm not 100% sure on this as I have never personally tried to set this up for a client. But from what I've read and seen of it, I think that is what you'll find.
