Confirming activites after UD in SAP QM

Hi experts

I know of a possible option of doing activity confirmation after results recording, but doesn't it make a lot of sense to do activity confirmation after UD?

I tried in the Edit section of the UD screen, but the activites confirm button is greyed out. I had assigned an operation in routing to a QM relevant control key with Confirmation required configured in SPRO.

Can someone tell me how to achieve confirm activites after UD

    I don't believe you can. While it might make sense for your particular organization/business to do confirmations at a UD level, in many, many places, it might not.

    The design follows that of other types of SAP task lists. The values and related keys are maintained in the operation headers. If you have multiple operations in an inspection plan, it's possible to have different requirements. For instance, if you have two operations, one for Mass Spec testing, and one for Wet Chemistry, the standard hourly labor cost for these two resources is probably going to be drastically different. As is any fixed cost asscociaed with the labs.

    Same for companies that make widgets. Simple dimensional testing, (height, thickness, width, etc..) might be done by a very low-cost employee and be done for many pieces in a production run. But then there might be destructive testing done on only one or two pieces in a batch by a separate lab group using highly trained employees and expensive test equipment. Each operation could have very different labor costs.

    A lot depends on the business you are in and what type of testing is done and how you design your processes.

    So I don't think you can do this on a UD level.
