QM for assets

Hi Experts

I have a implementing query for asset procurement.

Currently the client is procuring assets with dummy material numbers created for the asset group/class. The process steps are

1. They create a PO with the dummy material number

2. After receiving the assets it goes for quality inspection.

3. Once the quality inspection is done, the asset might be passed/ failed. If the asset is "OK" then they will do the Good Receipt and Invoice verification. If the quality is "NOT OK" then it should be informed to the purchasing department to ask the vendor to replace the asset, If the asset is replaced by the vendor then they will do the Goods Receipt and Invoice verification, otherwise they will return the asset.

We are planning to have a material numbers for each asset group (for example, Computers, Equipment etc.,) under "Non-Stock" material type. As per my understanding, if we use the Account assignment category "A" in PO then it will directly go to the consumption (Asset) account while doing the goods receipt for assets

Can anyone suggest me how can we handle "Asset Goods receipt after quality inspection" in SAP.

    What is the problem when the goods receipt does not create inventory and directly consumes the value? It is still possible to do quality inspection in QM with inspection lots.

    There is no need to switch a normal goods receipt process with inspection just because the material is not stock managed. Stock management for Quality Management

    • Read the document from and try it, there are several alternatives that cover the business case. A return can always happen, no matter what way you use for the receipt, it would not be logical if you could only send materials back if you use the way A for a receipt.

      Even receipts posted with 103 can have a inspection lot.
