Production quality control check task


let's asume a procduction "make" Task for eg 6 EA. Only one of these 6 items is confirmed. The next task is a "check" task. ByD will try to check the complete lot size of the "make" task , not the lot size of the confirmation.

Is there any setting available to use the confirmation's lot size in the check task?

Kind regards,

    Dear Klaus,

    There is no setting available to use the confirmation lot size in Check task.

    The behavior is that system will try to check the complete lot size of the make task rather than the confirmation ones's.

    I hope this answers your query.

    Dear Sandeep,

    If we don't have the settings for the confirmation lot size in the system for check task, then the quality person still can take the total lot quantity and he/she can still confirm the full quantity eventhough only partial confirmation done in the make task .

    Let us assume the planned quantity is 10 each in the "make task" and the production user confirms partial quatity of 6 each. As per the standard functionality in the "check task", the lot size is 10 each and the quality person still put the 10 each and the inventory will gets updated with 10 each only. Because in the check task he/she don't have any option to see the confimred quantity quantity from make task.

    Also if we have multiple make tasks (eg - 5) in a sequence and one check tasks in a single production order, the quality user can directly confirms the check task even without confirming the make tasks. We have green and red indicator to identify which task needs to be performed first. But still users can overrule that and I am not seeing any control over here.

    Thanks and Regards,

    Dear Klaus, Karthik,

    The quality check is a process that happens after the make task and ideally if we check the business use cases, only the confirmed quantities are moved to quality check. The quality engineer will be well aware of the quantity that is confirmed and has to only check the confirmed quantities.

    Having said that, the system allows you to confirm more quantities owing to the flexibility that is required in a production scenario. There can be cases where the make task confirmation was entered less/more than the planned and the additional quantity has to be documented in the check task as well. This is the same reason we do not have strict restriction in the order of confirming a supply and make task.

    Supply task used to issue input products to the production floor, if you already have input products available in your production floor you do not need to execute your supply task, but directly move to the make task.

    In a robust production scenario, where the production manager makes decisions on the fly with the available information, the system should not be restricting the business, but helping them. This is why we do provide the amount of flexibility in the system.

    However, if you think this is a behavior that needs to be changed, please do post the requirement in influence forum and can get the same addressed with the product management team of ByD.
