Inspection lot creation time concerning repairs processing



We have a problem regarding the creation of inspection lots concerning our repairs processing.

The SAP default process is described under (see "Process Flow"). Unfortunately our internal process deviates from that. At the moment in our company the quality inspection is done some time *after* the goods are received and not *at* the goods receipt.

Therefore the inspection lot creation is too early for us. To be exact, we do not want the inspection lot to be created when the "Change Returns" is delivered (in transaction "va02" -> "Deliver") but after the goods receipt is posted (in transaction "vl02n" -> "Post Goods Receipt").

Given that, as said, as the inspection lot is created too early, we face the problem that an unprocessed inspection lot already exist when we want to "Post Goods Receipt". Of course this does not work. Unfortunately, as said, the quality inspection in our company is done at a later time.

Has anybody any idea how to solve this problem and create the inspection lot at the "Post Goods Receipt" stage (and not before)? So far I have only successfully managed to not create the inspection lot at all for "Returns Delivery". (This was done via the customizing (spro): "Quality Management" - "Quality Inspection" - "Inspection Lot Creation" - "Inspection at Shipping" - "Assign Inspection Lot Origin to Delivery Type"; There I deleted the specific "Origin" for the delivery type ("DlvTy") "Returns Delivery".)

Looking forward to any suggestions!
