Automatic UD

Hi Guru's

I am using Auto UD program to do the Auto UD, We have Long term characteristics. Program is doing the UD of the lots for which no result recording is done, as per the program it should not do? Whether my understanding is correct.

We are getting another error, actually we do not post stock to quality stock it goes directly to the un-restricted, program is giving error Error during quantity posting for inspection lot manual proc. required why this error is coming?

Lot for which UD is done program is doing the 311 mvt with same plant and storge location.

Please throw some light on AUTO UD program functionality

Thanks in Advance

    Dear Ramakant,

    I am not so sure which program you are talking about? Whether you have developed any special program with ABAP help or you are using QA17 transaction code for planning auto UD.

    In order for the system to be able to carry out an automatic usage decision, the following conditions must be met. Check whether you are missing any of these.

    1. None of the characteristics has been rejected in the inspection lot.

    2. All the required characteristics should have been confirmed and closed

    3. No defect records exist for the inspection lot

    4. An automatic usage decision has been planned / scheduled for the material

    5. The parameters for the automatic usage decision is defined in the Customizing application. In the QM plant settings, you define the time interval that must expire after an inspection lot is created and before an automatic usage decision can be made. This allows you to intervene manually in the automatic process.

    6. Skipped lots are also taken into consideration when the automatic usage decision is made. A distinction is made between normal and skipped lots when the parameters are defined.

    • UD's and stock postings are separate items. So you can do a UD without doing the stock post in and vice versa. So the UD can be done and the stock posting can error. And yes... If you consume the stock in unrestricted, then yes, I can see you getting the error.

      This is a reason SAP has that transaction that should be a daily or weekly part of a lab manager's job. Look at QVM2 and have them run that as a daily job activity.

    When using the auto UD you should have at least one short term characteristic. The Auto UD only takes into consideration short-term characteristics.

    I'm not sure I follow the second question about the stock posting error. Is this error associated with the Auto UD or is it a separate issue?

    Hi Ramakant,

    did you find any solution for the first issue? I have inspection lots with long term characteristics and the program is setting the UD when it should be set only for short term characteristics.

    Thank you.

    Best regards.
