    Hi JJ,

    As Kaushik pointed out-

    QM Procuremrnt Active: if this set it means that QM in procurement is activated for all plants of a client.

    QM Control key: Details for QM specific procurement process at plant level are determined using this control key like if Technical delivery terms,Certificaton type etc.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks,

    RAVI.

    Hi JJ

    I addition to what all had said just remember that When ever you are using Qm procument key better to keep it as simple as possible.

    IMG>> Quality Management -->QM in Logistic --> QM in Procurement -->Define Control Keys

    now here After Defining the Control Key, Go to QM in Procurement Tab

    When ever you maintain Quality aggremnt tick & Vendor Relase or Delivery relase then Qulaity Info record cum into picture which are to be maintained at plant level..

    Regards

    If you set QM -Procurement active indicator, you should activate "QM in procurement" for all plants pertaining to a client.

    You can use the functions implemented in the QM component for supporting the procurement process as required. The QM functions apply partly to a certain material, a certain vendor and a certain material-vendor combination.

    The control data, therefore, are stored partly in the material master, the vendor master and in an information record (info record) for the material-vendor combination (supply relationship).

    QM control key key determines which conditions are valid for quality management in procurement.

    Let us know if you have any futher query on the same

    Thanks

    Dear JJ

    If you want to exercise control over procurement, like Block Purchase Order, Block a Vendor Material, Invoice Block, Block if Certification is not done etc ... then only you should activate this control.

    On activation it is mandetory to maintain Q Info record and to specify system which control you are expecting.

    Friendly advice - You will find many controls in SAP. Unless business requirement do not activate those controls.

    Regards
