I want to capture the appraisal cost of inspection and for that, I have decided to use QM Order.

But I am in dilemma regarding whether to use Order Type QL01 or QL02.

Can anyone enlighten me with advantages and especially disadvantages of using them both?

QL01 :-

  • The order is a long-term cost collector
  • The order accumulates the costs on a lump sum basis for all the materials or inspection lots that are assigned to the order. You cannot, therefore, assign the costs to individual materials or inspection lots.
  • The costs are settled in the Controlling (CO) component on a periodic basis (for example, once a month).

With a general QM order, you can:

  • Assign several different materials or inspection lots to the order
  • Confirm the activities for an inspection operation during results recording or when you make the usage decision
  • Create the order manually using the central maintenance function for creating and assigning QM orders
  • Use this type of order for goods movements without account assignments (for example, for normal goods receipt movements to warehouse stock)

QL02

  • The order is a short-term cost collector.
  • The order accumulates only the costs associated with the assigned inspection lot.
  • The costs are settled in the Controlling (CO) component on a one-time basis.

With an individual QM order, you can:

  • Assign only one inspection lot to the order
  • Confirm the activities for an inspection operation during results recording or when you make the usage decision
  • Specify in the material master that the order is to be created automatically when an inspection lot is created
  • Post goods movements with account assignments (for example, internal CO orders or cost centers)

Thanks!

I tried out this scenario with Order type QL01 and I am getting the following issue -

- I have assigned QM work center to inspection operation and maintained Std. times for the operation inspection plan.

- Assigned cost center to QM work center.

- Assigned formulae to activity types to calculate the cost in Costing view of the QM work center.

- Created the order manually in QK01 and assigned it to the material. Used the same cost center here.

*** Still, after result recording, I am getting pop-up for activity confirmation but the "Actual values" are not coming in front of activities. The actual value fields for all the activities are coming blank.

I want the actual values to be calculated by the system should be proposed for confirmation, just like it happens in CO11N for production activities confirmation.
