Release QI stock to Restricted and Unrestricted

Our business requirement is during QI they found that some quantity of the finished goods products can be released to Unrestricted for Sales, while some cannot and they want to keep it in restricted.

For example: QA checks 100 cartons of product (QA check). After check we define that 80 can be sold (unrestricted use), but 20 can be consumed internally (restricted use).

What is the good solution to handle this requirement?

    Please confirm the business definition between 'Unrestricted for Sales' and 'internal Consumption'. how can some material be consumed if the quality is still not OK.

    You can try inspection type 08, along with MvT 349/350 for this purpose.

    a) First when you receive the Goods, you can first put UD = R and put all material in blocked stock.

    b) Then from blocked stock, move 80 PC with inspection type 08 and put UD = A. Then this stock could be put to unrestricted use stock.

    c) For the remaining 20 PC, use the same movement, and keep recording result. Put UD = A or R accordingly. Note that once this is "A", it's hard to differentiate which is Good and which is partially good. Now at times, batch status 'Restricted' use can help to some extent.

    d) Post the remaining 20 PC to a different batch then the initial batch, and put 'Restricted' batch status.

    You can just post them to different stocks.

    A batch can only have one batch status. It's all or nothing.

    First, mark the batch as restricted. then post the restricted quantity out via the "New Material" posting line. You will want to keep the material number the same, but this give you an opportuntiy to put in a new batch number. Use the same batch number if possible with say and "R" added to the begining or end. This quantity now becomes it's own batch and should default as restricted. Save the UD.

    Now you go back into the UD (QA12), change the batch status to unrestricted and post the remaining 80 to unrestricted inventory.

    If the length of the batch number doesn't allow this, you may need to assign a new batch number and put temp labels on the material with the new batch number until it's used up by production.
