Incoming inspection based on purchase order type

Hi Experts,

Could anyone please let me know the way to generate Inspection lots based on the purchase order type.


We buy the material "A" from the vendor "V1" with purchase order type "NB Standard Order" and on posting the goods receipt (MIGO) a Inspection lot is generated with reference to plan "Plan 1" - which does 50% inspection.

Inspection setup for Material "A" -- Inspection type 01 - Goods receipt insp. for purchase order.

Now, we can return the same material "A" to the vendor "V1" for refurbishment through customized purchase order type "YDN Supplier return" and receive the material after refurbishment with MIGO. Here inspection lot is generated again with reference to plan "Plan 1".

But our requirement is that all the materials which are booked in through return Purchase Order should generated lots based on basis of new Inspection plan "Plan 2" where they need 100% inspection.

Thank you!!

    Hi Rajani,

    As per my knowledge..

    During inspection lot creation system will validate the inspection plan details with material and Plant, Vendor combination.

    if there are 2 plans with same usage 5 (Goods receipt) and same material , Plant, Vendor combination then system will check the validity of the plan then it will consider the FIFO Basis..

    if you want to consider the plan 2..

    suggest the business to assign the plan through below process

    Go to QA02 -- Inspection specification --Task list / Spec. then ask them to select the plan number 2

    and save the lot

    hope this might have some manual intervention..

    aslo try with technical team is there any possibility for enhancement

    • Hi Venkatesh Babu,

      Thanks for sharing your views.

      I knew about the issue with the above approach, like lot is created without the plan assignment.

      Could you please let me know about how the inspection is carried out on vendor returns and if material number is same during the purchase and vendor returns.

    You need to implement user exit QPAP0002 to influence the selection of the plan. I'd create an inspection plan usage to match the expected purchase order types. i.e. usage NB. Another plan usage of YDN. In the exit check the order type, change the usage from the default usage ot usage NB for YDN. The exit should then reassign the appropriate plan.

    • 1) in your original posting you said you order from vendor and inspect. You never said that at times you don't need to inspect. So it sounds like you have that covered in QAAT0001 now by modifying the inspection type.

      2) your characteristics are maintained in the inspection plan. Since you created a new inspection type for returns, you should have configured the new inspection type to use a different plan usage than the standard 01 inspection type.

      Then you create plans with the new plan usage.
