    Hi Chaitanya,

    Please can you suggest how is the said quality issue is identified, and tracked in SAP. Do you record defect at RR or UD to generate a QM notification linked to the inspection lot, or you create a separate QM notification is QM01 by creating separate tasks (one such task being creating NC report..)? Is there any other manual steps involved in your As-Is process? Inputs for these questions will fine tune the responses you can get in these forum.

    In the meantime, you can think of below options -

    a) Your material was in unrestricted stock before. Now as soon as you identify that there is some issue with the material, you can trigger a manual Blocked material movement.

    b) As soon as you identify there is any issue while you do result recording at inspection lot level, you can put UD = R and the stock will be posted to blocked stock in background.

    c) In case you manage the nonconformance through QN, then you can trigger Action Box functionality to perform this stock posting to blocked stock.

    d) In case your material is batch managed with stock type management active like "Unrestricted" and "Restricted", then you can simply use MSC2N and block the material to "restricted" till you get an internal communication on what has to be done.
