Stock in IQC location not considered as AP

Hi experts,

How can I setup and restrict the status of stock waiting for inspection (IQC) not to be considered as owned by company?

For example, if stock in IQC, when running AP report, the amount should not be included.

    This would really be more an issue for the inventory people I would think. Ownership of the stock has to do with the type of order used and how you receipt the material. Quality has nothing to do with this. You might try asking them to receive it on consignment. Many companies do this with rail cars. The vendor owns the material while it is sitting in the customers rail yard. Once the vendor test a rail car and stages it for unloading, then they notify the vendor.

    Often times this rail yard material is in a special storage location in the plant. The material is received from consignment which is when ownership is taken. The stock is moved to the unloading area via a material transfer (storage location to storage location), which can create the inspection lot. Often time a special material movement is created just for this process.

    Another possibility is to use source inspections. This allows you to inspect the material prior to the GR and block receipt of the material if it fails. In this case you would never receipt it and as a result never own it.

    • Yes, source inspection is done prior to receiving so there is no stock yet anyway.

      If you use an STO I'm not 100% sure. The lot isn't typically created until you do the receipt in the receiving plant.

      However, you might be able to create a type 10 inspection lot with the QM in SD record set up with the indicator "after delivery". This would create an inspection lot in the delivering plant. You could set up a work center for these inspections that would security on it such that only the personnel in the receiving plant can record results and maybe make the UD.

      Any lot rejections would require a manual process though to block receipt and create a return delivery.

      The might be some things you could do to help prevent receipting a rejected batch such as maybe making the batch staus as restricted.
