Inspection plan with multiple specifications

I have to maintain 1 inspection plan for 2 vendors for incoming inspection.

Eg: Vendor A & B

Vendor A, I have to check parameter Fe, Mn, Si

Vendor B, I have to check parameters Fe, Moisture (For B, no need to check Mn, Si. Also Fe specification will vary for A and B vendors)

How can we do this in SAP. I cannot maintain 2 inspection plans.

    Hi

    This requirement can only be solved by using two inspection plans( one group & two gr counter)

    as Fe specification will vary for A and B

      I have to maintain 1 inspection plan for 2 vendors for incoming inspection.

      Vendor A, I have to check parameter Fe, Mn, Si

      Vendor B, I have to check parameters Fe, Moisture (For B, no need to check Mn, Si ).

      Can anyone suggest whats the way for doing inspection with a single inspection plan. In laymans language can anyone tell me what is multiple specification and how to use it in SAP.

      Thanks and Regards

    Dear Vineeth

    1) The only simple solution for this is to maintain 2 inspection plan. for the same material vendor wise. There is no other method

    2) Multiple specification will not suit this. Multiple specification is used if you need to valuate particular test for different specification. for eg . you have a test X. for customer A it should go with a specification limit of 10 to 20 and for another customer it is 15 to 30

    Multiple specification helps you in valuating the test X for both the specification limit so that you can see whether the mic has passed for both the customer

    If you need more clarification please let me know

      Nagesh,

      So, is this multiple specification and dependant characteristics functionality in inspection plans are same or not? Please mention if there is a difference between two. I had worked with functionality of dependant characteristics, but never with multiple specifications. Thats y the confusion.

      thx

    Dear Vineeth

    Dependent characteristic and Multiple specification are different. Dependent as you know is used when for one mic we have different specification and based on vendor or customer we choose it, but the valuation will be done in the inspection lot using a single specification .

    But in multiple specification you can actualy valuate using each of the different specification for one MIC. please refer to the document below which will make everything clear for you

    Dear Vineeth

    1) Dependent characteristic

    For MIC 1000 - Vendor A specification 10 to 20, For Vendor B spec is 30 to 50

    Suppose we receive 10 pc from vendor A , after GR inspection lot will be created from the 10 pc and the specification for MIC (1000) will be automaticaly assgined to the inspection lot ie 10 to 20. If the vendor was B then the specification would be 30 to 50.

    In inspection lot there will be only one specificaton either it will be of Vendor A or that of B

    2) In multiple specification is normaly used for Customer, country etc.

    you have customer A , B , C & D with differnet specs for one single mic and you want to valuate the mic with all specification seperately at one time

    In this multiple specification is used. here we can valuate the mic with all the specification of A, B , C & D and results in a seperate window in the result recording tab. accordingly you can check wehter the mic has passed as ok with all cusomter specification

      Thanks Gajesh,

      Now I am clear with the concept. Now can you throw some light on how to do or customize multiple specification in SAP. What all are the basic steps and customization to be done for doing multiple specification.

      Thx
