MIC severity value

Experts,

I had a question about setting different severities(Critical/Record & report/Non Critical) for a single MIC. Initially i thought that we need to create 3 different MICs for 3 different severities. I soon realized that it would have been a big blunder after reading a thread which mentioned that we can assign severity for MIC at inspection plan level.

Question: Can you please tell me the steps to assign severity for MIC at inspection plan? Business user who usually creates inspection plan could not find any on screen which allows for assigning severity.

BR,

Aspire

    Are you talking about inspection severity (standalone or in combination with AQL), or really about MIC severities? If it is inspection severity, take a look at the connections between sampling procedures, sampling schemes and inspection plans.

    If you are really talking about MIC severities, I have no idea currently what this should be.

    • Hi Martin,

      Thanks for your reply. I am interested in MIC Characteristic weighting. I will try the option suggested by Craig and will post my feedback here in this thread.

    I think you might be talking about the MIC characteristic weighting that can be assigned in the MIC. To change this in the inspection plan, in you must either use a copy/incomplete copy model MIC or, if you use a reference MIC then you must unlock it in the plan. Then you can change the weighting of the characteristic in the plan. If you use a reference characteristic and you do no specify a weighting in the MIC, the weighting field will not be visible in the inspection plan until you unlock it.

    I suspect in configuration some has changed your weightings from the standard ones to the three you mention above.

    Hi Craig,

    You are right. I am interested in MIC Characteristic weighting. I will try the options you have suggested and will let you know the feedback.

    Hi Craig,

    From QP01 Tcode, I am creating inspection plan. I enter plant and material and press enter. In next screen, I see that we can choose the operation number and assign MICs to each operation. I chose first operation 0010 and assigned a MIC to it by clicking Inspection Characteristics button.

    I choose first MIC and click on Sample button,

    Screen comes as below,

    Craig - Is this the place in Inspection plan where we can set Weighting for a MIC? Just to confirm, i set Nitrogen as Non-Critical here and went to QS23 to display the MIC to confirm whether i am editing weighting directly at MIC level or is it a value that i am giving dynamically in inspection plan level. I see that MIC still had weighting as Critical in QS23. Please let me know if this is how users can make a MIC Critical/Non Critical/Record & report at inspection plan level.

    A little background on this requirement: We have PLM specification data for Materials where we can set a VAT is Critical or Non Critical at Material Spec level. We are already using classification system to tie VAT from PLM to MIC in QM system. If we display a MIC in QS23, we will see a button called Classification, where we have created a custom class to map PLM VAT and QM MIC.

    Currently we only have Critical and Non Critical as values for weighting against a MIC. I will be adding Record & report as well from SPRO as 3rd value. We are only interested in MICs that have weighting as Critical/Record & report. Anything Non Critical is something we are not interested in.

    This is where users are asking for a provision to set weighting for MIC at inspection plan level. As mentioned earlier, there can be a business need where Nitrogen can be Non Critical in 1 inspection plan and the same MIC Nitrogen will be flagged as Critical/Record & report in another plan.

    Hi Craig,

    I pressed F1 in QS23 for a MIC to understand about complete/incomplete/reference option. I could not understand the difference between these options and the impact that each option has.

    We have around 3000 plus MICs in our system and most of them are created using Complete option. Not sure why they chose this. But when tried to assign weighting for MIC in inspection plan, i noticed that it did not matter whether MIC was complete/incomplete copy model. In both cases, i was able to set weighting value for MIC following the steps mentioned in previous post.

    But in your reply, you had mentioned that we can set weighting only if its created using incomplete/ref option. Can you please help me understand these options.
