    I beleive this is source inspection, not delivery before shipping.

    The OP should do some research on source inspections at vendor and reveiw standard SAP functionality and help files.  Then come back with specific questions.

    • You might got it right Craig! 😊 I thought OP's client  purchases some material from vendor and sells to their customer and wants pre-dispatch inspection at this stage!

    If you want inspection before dispatch you should active inspection type 10 in material master. That will trigger inspection lot with reference to outbound delivery. You will not be in a position to post PGI unless you clear this lot. You may need to do customization as well QCC0 > Quality Inspection > Inspection Lot Creation > Inspection at Shipping > Assign Inspection Lot Origin to Delivery Type

    Hi Rahul,

    Craig was right!! It's source inspection which you can search in SCN/Google. You can get this process with adding inspection type 0101, in your material master. But that would be linked to GR against PurOrd. But I think you already said you are trying to check the quality before physically doing GR/PGI.

    Now I again put on my enhancement hat 😉 to provide a quick fix -

    a) Create a inspection lot of type 89, manually by introducing the receiving material. Note that in the inspection text, you can add PurOrd number as reference.

    b) Once you try to create GR for this PurOrd, system should check back this 89 inspection lot, if the  UD = A. If so, allow the GR for material.

    NOTE: In this case, as the quality is already tested before, you don't need again to create another 01 inspection lot, unless you are testing some external characteristic, like carton quality, packaging quality, storage conditions, etc etc.

    I am open for any further good suggestions.

    Thanks,

    • Another option could be using QM in Procurement => Certificate processing with Control Key - 0005, where GR for source control "X" if selected, then rejected inspection lots will be blocked form GR posting.
