    Dear Balaji,

    Once lot comes under quality inspection & if you have configured for inspection result recording for inspection lot in QM system , you can enter source inspection result from his PDIR.

    Reward if useful,

    Hi,

    You can generate an inspection lot for source inspection. For this to happen following is the prerequisite --

    1) You have to maintain Quality Info Record & maintain tick at Source Inspection & no. of days (before planned delivery date) for creating Source Inspection Lot. If you want that the inspection lot is not to be generated at GRN if the source inspection lot is accepted, then mark tick at Source inspection, No GR.

    2) Maintain quality inspection plan (in transaction QP01). Maintain the required characteristics in the plan. The usage of the plan should be for goods receipt & the same should be released.

    If you maintain these settings, then when the purchase order is released you can create source inspection lot through transaction QI07. Select vendor, material & after executing, select the purchase order for which source inspection lot is to be generated & click on icon 'Create'. Then save. The inspection lot is now generated. You can now carry out the source inspection & then post the results for the inspection lot in transaction QE51N & usage decision at QA11.

    The system can do following -

    1) If the source inspection lot is accepted, it can post the stock of material to unrestricted use after GRN if you wish to.

    2) Create inspection lot at GRN eventhough the source inspection lot is accepted.

    3) If the source inspection lot is rejected, then system will not allow you to post the GRN.

    Hope this fulfills the requirement.

    Regards,

    Prashant

      Thanks for the reponse...... I got one query is that if I maintain the setting that the stock will be posted to Inspection stock then will a new lot will be created

      (as inspection type 01) & we again take the UD to move it to unrestricted.......

      Please comment...

    The concept of Source Inspeciton(SI) is that the inspection is not stock relevant(Inspection type 0101) and the inspeciton lot does not have a stock posting tab while you do UD .If you want a tab then it is inspection type 01 for which it creates an inscetion lot with stock posting tab at UD and hence is a normal GR inspection.So the tick mark in QI wher it says Source Inspection -No GR controls if you want a lot or not in GR .Hope that was helpful in understanding SI

    Regards,
