Next inspection date

Dear Experts,

Inspection lot is automatically generated today with type 09-(Recurring inspection of batches) even though inspection interval is of 365 days it means lot should be generated after 365 days.

Please help me on this issue.

    In the deadline monitoring program, check to see what the value is in the variannt for the 'window' of batches to look at. I.e. if the window is set to 30, it will create lots for batches that will reach their next inspection date in the next 30 days. It could be set to some very high value in your system.

    And as the previous poster indicated, check the actual next inspection date in the batch record. It could be that the batch was created before you had the material master value set to 365. Or that someone manually changed the next inspection date in the batch.

      Next inspection date is just that. It is the next time the material should be inspected to verify that the material is still valid for sale. Expiration date should be the last date the material can be extended to regardless of inspection.

      I.e... we set a three year expiration date and a yearly re-inspection.

      Manufacture 1/1/08

      Reinspect 1/1/09

      Reinspect 1/1/10

      Expires 1/1/11 - Moved to blocked stock for scrapping.

      Now every material and business is different. Some places have the expriation data and next inspection date the same and extend both when they reinspect. Some places only use expiration date. Some places have materials that never expire and only do reinspection.

      You have to design and set up what makes the sense for your particular business.

      What you have to keep in mind is that the inspection date and expiration date HAVE NO RELATIONSHIP. If one date gets changed the other doesn't. If you want them to be in sync in some manner you must use business procedures or follow-up actions to do so.

      Also keep in mind that the next inspection date is calculated from the date of the UD. If, in the example shown above, I don't make the UD for the 1/1/09 reinspection until 1/6/09, then the new inspection date would be 1/6/10 and not 1/1/10. Or, if I make it early on 12/26/08, the next inspection date would be 12/26/09 and not 1/1/10.

    Check in Batch data (Msc3n) which date is there for Next Inspection date.

    Also check change data in the Batch for change documents for the Batch.
