ByDesign : Adding Two Step Delivery Process

Hello Team,

Currently system is configured for Shipping Without Task to Process for processing Inbound & Outbound Deliveries.

We have introduced new Quality Check process which lay before doing Post Goods Issue. without processing QC check, system should not allow to create PGI (only for certain category of products)

For e.g.

In a delivery we have 2 main assemblies (Category A) & 8 small parts (Category B)

Category B must have QC pass to process PGI but for Category B its optional.

How do I add new process in whole delivery scenario.

Regards, Vishal Kambare

    Dear Vishal,

    Inspection process in ByDesign is designed in such a way that it is not a hard stop rather it is soft stop, The answer for your queries are as follows.

    Final Inspection – Customer Shipment-- When we activate Inspection plan for Outbound process

    When user posts a goods issue, This is done by choosing Post Goods Issue in the Delivery Proposals subview of the Delivery Control view in the Outbound Logistics work center. This actions immediately release the associated inspection document, However will not have control on inspection document.

    Also we cannot have a hard control on Post Goods Issue until the inspection document is released or created.

    In the outbound process, the inspection is released when the associated pick task or pick tasks are confirmed or when the Post Goods Issue is performed.

    I hope this answers your query.

    Dear Vishal,

    I am trying to understand your query .

    Do you mean by stating "to add a new process in delivery scenario" to add operation type lets say "load" in this scenario if your query is on the same the answer is yes. You can add ,change activity type and operation type for logistics model.

    Kindly clarify or elaborate your query a bit more if this does not answer your query.

    • Hi,

      1. Currently we can process inspection only after posting PGI as it creates warehouse order automatically (warehouse order is the main document to create inspection) I want to change this so that warehouse order can be created separately & QC can take place.

      2. Only after completing QC Inspection, system should allow to process PGI (for categories defined under Inspection plans)

      If this can be achieved, I need configuration details to set this process right.

    Are these categories material numbers? Class? Mtrl group? Or just how your business refers to them?

    In QM we use inspection type 10 for inspections at delivery. Any of the material numbers can be set up to require an inspection which would in turn, block the PGI until the inspection lot(s) are completed.

    Search the help file and internet using the following key words: SAP QM in SD

    • From the comments made, I'm not exactly clear of the process you are talking about.

      Is it manufacturing? Make--> 04--> inspect-->WH--shipping to store-->PGI?

      In this the material is in QI, but you want to be able for WM to get it ready for shipping but not PGI until the insp. lot is UD'd.

      Is it receiving? Purchase order-->PGI-->WM-->QM inspection-->release to unrestricted for shipping.

      In this you want to receive it in to warehouse, but not PGI because that indicates you own it and it starts the payment process to the vendor. You want to wait until inspection is complete before impacting any financials.

      Is it sub-contracting? Similar to purchase order but with sub-contracting orders.
