Inspection Lot creation in different plants?


Hi Guys,

I have the following problem. I have a batch managed material that is coming from external vendor. Material is first sent to plant A - goods receipt is posted with batch number 12345 - according to QM settings in the material master an inspection lot is created. Now the same material is sent to plant B - the same batch number 12345 is posted goods receipt and the system will NOT create a new inspection lot (which is actually required, as this other plant is in China and nobody knows about any inspections done in the plant in Europe).

The setting in the material master for lot creation is "2 - For each material, batch and storage location". If you read the F1 documentation to this setting is clearly says: The lot summary does not take place, and new inspection lots are created when:

  • Goods receipts are posted to different plants or storage locations

So why wouldn't the system create a new inspection lot, even if the batch is the same (it is at least another plant).

Best regards and thanks in advance
