Calibration of Test Equipments

Hi Experts,

Our client is having one more scenario......

Calibration of Test Equipments:

1. As per the schedule, Calibration Order will get generated and they do calibrate the Equipment. (This point I am very clear)

2. If the equipment doesn't fit into the required limits, they do send it outside. (here my doubt starts)

3. They do get it calibrated by external agency and they receive the equipment with test certificate.

My doubt is, is it possible to send the euipment by triggering a PR and PO through Califbration Order. Is it possible to include the equipment no in PO.

As per MM process, we can bring only materials to Store. So I think I have to have a Serial No assosiated with that Equipment.

If serial no profile is activated, will the system allow to receive the TEquip with the same serial no. (after repair. According to me, Valuation of the TE changes once that is repaired. So system will not allow). Also where and how to include Certificate of Vendor in this process.

Please suggest me the easier way to incorporate this scenario

Thnx in advance

    As you said kindly do the process of without serial number .just assign the material to that equipment ,then as standard send the material outside with respect to PO .in the material master make the procurement active with control key specified for test certificate

      In task list operation you select the control key PM02 (- check with PM guy - it is external work)

      and operation detail if you enter the vendor no (to whom you rented service or calibration)

      once order released system will automatically generate the PR and then PO?

      Inspection lot also generated__> once you receive the TE --> check the cerificate (for this you create 2 0r 3 MIC created eg. certicicate attached or not , calibrated or not etc)

      make ud

      let me know if you need further input

    Hi Sam,

    I think that the way Sami had guided the solution to you is perfect.

    You just need to incorporate a operation in your task list, having a control key same as PM02 which will trigger a PO for you. That may be a service PO. for which you can maintain the details according the "Service Entry sheet" Ask your MM guy for better explanation over the service entry sheet.

      What ever you have explained is correct, provided we dont want to capture the Material movement through PO and don't want to give the TE no in PO,

      My requirement is to capture the TE no in PO.
