Automatic UD for partial lots

We have set up a prototype to use QM for the ARM material inspection in a customer returns process.

We use inspection type 10 to create inspection lots when booking GR on the return delivery. This works fine but in ARM SAP Standard always creates exactly one partial lot for the delivery quantity.

Now when recording the results and everything is fine, I would like to automatically close the UD using QA10. But I can not find any customizing or function modules which would allow me to take an automatic usage decision on lots containing partial lots or partial lots.
Can this only be done interactively?

I'm kind of surprised that a 10 even works. This is usually reserved for outgoing customer orders and is linked to the sales order/delivery. I'm not sure you have an order linked to this.

Have you tried inspection types 11 or 12 yet instead?

Sorry for the late reply but 10 uppon the recommended inspection type by SAP for this process according to note 2259775. In the return process there is a return-sales order and a return-delivery so 10 should be fine.

The inspection lot creation is fine and looking at the SAP coding there is no way to prevent the usage of partial inspection lots.

The functionality I'm looking for is purely the automatic or background UD on partial lots. But for this I can't find any functionality.

This is somehow strange as my impression was that ARM is supposed to be used in high-volume return processes. Now if I enable the QM integration I have to manually take the UD (at least on the partial lot level).


I don't have inspection type 10's in use where I'm at now but the auto UD program doesn't seem to prevent it if I use 10 as the inspection type.

Have you made sure that in the material, in the inspection type 10 set up you selected "one inspection lot for each batch split" and that you have automatic UD allowed ticked on?

This would ensure one batch per inspection lot. I don't think the results would all that much greater in such a situation and if you use an auto UD, the multiple lots shouldn't be much of an issue.
