    Hi

    You can create a new group counter for the same inspection plan. In the Inspection plan menu - material assignment you can assign different vendor for the new group counter.

    When the lot is created, depending on vendor the counter is automatically selected.

    regards

    create a inspection plan for the material.

    Create 2 group counter and assign different MIC's.

    Goto header and select material assignment tab. in that you will see the group counters and also a field for vendor. you can fill the vendor no there.

    in this way you can create combination of material, group counter and vendor.

    during GR, system will select MIC based on the above combination

    I'm not sure what to tell you. As already stated, and as you already told your client, the solution is two inspection plans, (or another group counter within a plan, same thing really).

    What do they expect? The additional tests to just appear out of thin air magically? They have to maintain a list of these extra characteristics for the second vendor somewhere.

    What is their issue with the plans? Why don't they like them?

    explore "dependent Char specs".

    • You can't Andreas. Bad advice. They can't be used to exclude an MIC. Dependent specs are used to change the specs based on the vendor/customer. They are used for 01 incoming inspections, and type 10 inspections (delivery), mostly. You can't use them for 04 lots unless you are changing the spec for different materials assinged to the same plan since there is no vendor or customer number assigned to the lot.
