    Dear,

    In material master under --QM view active "Skip allow" indicator.

    Skip lotting in SAP is some what different. SAP does not actual prevent the creation of the inspection lot. It simply sets a status of SKIP on the inspection lot. The lot is still there and if desired, it can be used. Once a characteristic is accessed in the lot, it becomes a normal inspection lot.

    You need to setup an auto UD batch job for processing the skip lots and closing them. Skip lots have their own "wait" time defined in plant QM config settings.

    That means by DMR you can not stop the inspection lot generation.

    Hi,

    Dynamic Modification Rule

    Definition

    The basic data record contains the definition of the inspection stages, the dynamic modification time (at lot creation or after the usage decision has been made), and the conditions for the inspection stage change. Inspection stage changes occur on the basis of the inspection results that are recorded for inspection lots and inspection characteristics (that is, on the basis of their acceptance or rejection).

    Use

    You can vary the inspection scope using dynamic modification rules. You can store a dynamic modification rule in one of the following places:

    In the inspection plan at the header level

    In the inspection plan at the characteristic level

    In the inspection setup of the material master record at the inspection type level

    Structure

    A dynamic modification rule contains the definition of the inspection stages, the dynamic modification time, and the conditions that lead to an inspection stage change.

    There are always two options that apply to the conditions for an inspection stage change: An acceptance (OK) and rejection (not OK). The system uses these conditions to update the quality level, which always reflects the current status.

    The functions for maintaining and displaying dynamic modification rules are primarily contained on three screens:

    On the initial screen, you enter the identifier for the dynamic modification rule.

    On the header data screen, you maintain a short text and the blocking indicator, and define the time of dynamic modification (at lot creation or when the usage decision is made) and the reset period.

    The reset period defines the period of time, which must elapse before the quality level again uses the initial inspection stage specified in the dynamic modification rule as the current inspection stage.

    On the inspection stages screen, you edit the inspection stage data (inspection severity, skip, initial inspection stage, and short text). You create the rules for the inspection stage change on this screen.

    In QM, the inspection stage describes a test or inspection status that is based on the inspection history and predefined rules. Different inspection stages mean that there are also different inspection scopes and/or inspection severities.

    Creating a Dynamic Modification Rule

    1.Choose Logistics ® Quality management ® Quality planning ® Basic data ® Sample ® Dynamic modification rule ® Create.

    2.Enter the identifier for the dynamic modification rule on the initial screen or choose Copy to use an existing dynamic modification rule as a copy model.

    3.Choose Dynamic modification rule to carry out the following activities on the header data screen:

    Edit the short text for the dynamic modification rule.

    Define the time of dynamic modification (at lot creation or usage decision).

    Define the reset period.

    Set the blocking indicator if you want to prevent the dynamic modification rule from being used in an inspection plan.

    4.Choose Next screen to carry out the following activities on the inspection stages screen:

    Define inspection stages.

    Define inspection severities for individual inspection stages.

    Identify skips.

    Identify the initial inspection stage.

    Maintain short texts for the inspection stages.

    5.Choose Stage change to carry out the following activities on the screen for creating the inspection stage change:

    Define the specifications for a stage change for an acceptance (OK)

    Define the specifications for a stage change for a rejection (Not OK)

    6.Choose Next screen to return to the inspection stages screen and save your entries.

    When you save the data, the system prompts you for a confirmation. If you want to include the dynamic modification rule in the allowed relationships for sampling procedures and dynamic modification rules (this is only necessary if a sampling procedure is used in a sampling scheme), you can switch directly to the assignment transaction by confirming this prompt. You define the assignment of sampling procedures and dynamic modification rules in this screen.

    If you do not confirm the prompt, the system returns directly to the initial screen and confirms that it has created the dynamic modification rule.

    Hope this helps.

    Award points if useful.

      Thanx for the reply. Please guide me in my case whch is as follows

      I have created a Dynaimc Modification Rule(DMR) at Lot Creaton as "TES" & assigned it to task list

      I have made the seetings in DMR as to skip the first four lots & than inspect the " 1 " lot.

      Sytem is still creating the inspection lot for the skip. Please guide me where i went wrong.

      My DMR Setting is as follows:-

      Stage InsSev SKIP Ist Text NO MAx New Insp Stage Rej New Insp Stage

      10 * 4 999 20 1 20

      20 4 * 1 10 1 10

      I will call u up If you can help me over phone also & for that please give me your number or miss call at my number which is 919909986406.

    Dear Tejas

    Please Understand that SKIP does not mean that the there will not be any inspection lot at all, but the status of the lot will be SKIP hence the inspection lot will be there. Only inspection is skipped you still need to take a UD. You can take collective usage decision for all such lots using T code QA16.

      k. Thankx for the reply. But If i go and check in QA16 no lot is shown there. But in QA32 i am able to see the lot. And there also I have to record the characteristics and than take U.D.

      Please tell me the steps and settings to be done for the below scenario:--

      For first four lots no Result recording to be done i.e. inpection lot is generated w/o inspection plan & after 4rth lot , inspection should be done for 1 Lot and than again for the next 4 lots no inspection should be done.

    Hi,

    Check DMR with the given Proceedure and correct it if needed.

    Proceedure for Creation of DMR

    1. Execute QDR1--> Enter Modification Rule ( Eg: "tst") --> Enter Description ( eg : 'Every tenth lot to be checked') --> Select radio button at lot creation --> Click on next --> Enter stage 10 and inspection Severity as 004 > click on check box Initial Inspection Stage> Maintain short description ( eg : 'Inspect 1 st lot') --> Enter stage 20 --> click on check box skip --> Maintain short description ( eg : 'skip 9 lots') --> Press Enter and select stage 10 and click on stage change --> Enter no. of Inspections 1, New inspection stage 20 under O.K condition --> Enter no. of rejections 1, New inspection stage 20 under Not O.K condition --> Press Enter and select stage 20 and click on stage change --> Enter no. of Skips 9, New inspection stage 10 under O.K condition --> Enter no. of rejections 1, New inspection stage 10 under Not O.K condition. > Press Enter and save.> Assign dynamic modification rule to sampling proceedure ( with sampling scheme). --> Save it.

    2. Execute QP02 --> In header Select dyanamic modification at lot level and assign dynamic modification rule ' tst' and save it.

    For Automatic UD of Skip lots, Do the following settings.

    1. Execute mm02 -->Select Automatic UD for inspection type in material master along with Skips allowed.

    2. In customization (SPRO-->Quality management --> Basic settings --> Maintain settings at plant level), Maintain Delay time for skip lot in minutes, under Insp lot completion tab for the respective plant.

    Go through the below given SAP help documentation for field.

    Waiting Time (Minutes) Since Insp. Lot Creation for Skip Lot

    Use

    Before the system can make an automatic usage decision for inspection lots with skip status, the delay time (in minutes) must have already expired since the lot was created.

    Dependencies

    You must allow skips in the inspection setup for the material, so that the system can modify the inspection scope dynamically to a skip stage (assuming a corresponding quality level exists).

    If you activated the indicator for an automatic usage decision for goods receipt inspections in the inspection setup for the material and the inspection lot has the status skip lot, the system posts the lot quantity directly to unrestricted-use stock (ship-to stock). This occurs even if the inspection stock indicator is set in the inspection setup for the material.

    or

    Do manual UD In QA16 collectively for Skip lots
