quality issue in po

Hi

there are materials that are procured regularly from some vendors, these are trusted vendors sources for material quality. when ever there is an introduction of new vendor for supply of these materials, his supply has to go through quality management.

if we activate the quality management for these materials then the regular vendor's material also have to pass through QM. this will unnecessary will increase the work.

we want that QM should function exclusively for new vendors of our choice.

We donot want to have it by selection stock type QI, purely routed through QM.

pl help in this case.

    That menans you are not using theQM module of SAP as per the SAP terminology.

    In this case what you can do is whenever you introduce the new vendor then receive that stock as GR blocked stock and the ask the quality to do the testing then move to unrestricted or return to vendor

    Hello,

    When PO is created, you can designate the PO line to be received into the specific stock type (Unrestricted, Quality Inspection, Blocked Stock). This can be carried out in Item->Delivery tab in ME21N/ME22N.

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    In this case you can activate the material for quality in QM view of material master (transaction code MM01 / MM02). Use the control key with all the requirements of release active. Then maintain quality info record for the material for each vendor (transaction code QI01 / QI02). For your regular vendors, for whom, you don't want to create Inspection Lot at GRN, maintain condition 'No inspection Lot' at quality info record. For new vendors, maintain condition vendor not certified, Inspection lot for each GRN. After maintaining this condition, whenever you make GRN for your regular vendors, the material will be posted to unrestricted use. For other vendors, inspection lot will be created at GRN.

    Hope this works.

    Regards,

    Prashant
