Quality Inspection Stock Status as Available Quantity for MRP

Hi All,

I have an urgent problem here regarding the status of quality inspection stock.

As per the current situtaion, when the stock is posted as 'In quality Inspection', it automatically showed as 'scrap' in MD04 and it will not be shown as 'Unrestricted Use' stock in MMBE.

My customer requirement is even when the stock is 'in quality inspection' status, they would also allow this stock to be called for any MRP use mening that it should show as 'Available Quantity' in MD04 and 'Unrestricted Use' in MMBE.

Is there any special setting which I should look into?

Hope that anyone who knows about this can help me out.

    Hi ,

    The standard is that "Quality Inspection Stock" is available for MRP in MD04 , despite being the stock type Quality insection.By this very basic classification of stock type , you will never be able to show it as " Unrestricted stock" in some other report.

    First of all it would be a contradicting data , even if you achieve that by some means , thats nothing but corrupting your data.natuarally R/3 will not support that i.e : you can not show a specific stock as unrestricted use stock , while you actually have it in quality inspection .

    Coming to the first part of your statement , I understand your transaction as following : you must be using a movement type that would be used for scrapping the material , how ever , you can still have a inspection check on all your scrap materials.Since you have already identified them as scrap (by virtue of Mvt type), those stocks are not appearing as available stocks in MD04. So check the movement types that you are using while transacting such stocks.

    Hope this information clarifies.

    Hi ,

    Pl check the status of material in MM03,at the time of PO creation and at the time of MIGO...wether quality enabled or not ...all should be in sync .

    Quality inspection stock will not appear as unrestricted stock in MMBE....

    And since the decision is still pending for the stock so it won't reflect in ur MD04.

    And the config. u r talking about ...I am afraid there is non for it.

    Hi Rahuramam and Dipak,

    Thanks for your prompt reply but I think my explanation on the question is not good. I will try to explain my problem again.

    Sorry for all the inconvinence caused.

    We are facing a strange problem when we check stock requirement list.

    I have finished material "A" quantity 10 in quality inspection stock. Now i receive a new order for material "A" quantity 15.

    When i view the stock requirement list in MD04, i am unable to see the available stock of material as 10, it is getting displayed as zero in the available qty field. But when i click at the stock button, it will display the stock of material 'A' as 'In Quality Inspection'.

    I am using following settings-

    1. Material master for "A" created with Availabilty check 1

    2. In the configuration Sales & Operations Planning-- Assignment of validation rules to key figures -Assign MRP elements to a key figure,

    For all combination of checking group and checking rule, stock figures

    quality inspection stock is marked for stock figures.

    I hope system validates whether to include quality inspection stock in the availablity check from here only.

    Please help.....
