Quality certificates printing automatically during delivery creation

Hi Folks,

My client want to print automatically the quality certificates with inspection results during Delivery creation.but they dont want to generate a inspection lot during delivery, hence the last inspected results for the same material(let say inspection lot generated during Production) has to be printed in the Quality certificates.

Pl help in this regard

    There is no requirement in SAP to use an inspection at delivery in order to create a COA.

    If you have specified an inspection type or origin in the cert profile remove it. Then it will use the last results found, regardless of inspection type or origin. If you know you want to use the 04 results, than specify 04 in the COA profile header.

    If you are batch managed, you can change the profile to report results from the batch in which case, the type and origin don't matter.

    • If you go into the delivery do you have any COA outputs assigned in the delivery such LQCA or LQCB? You might have created your own output types for COA output types. I don't know. You can try to manually add them for testing in VL02n. In SAP lingo, the "messages" it refers to are these output types or output messages in the delivery.

      If no outputs are available in the delivery, then you have not fully configured your COA solution. If you haven't done this before, I would suggest working with an SD consultant who should be familiar with creating outputs on deliveries and orders. They should be able to work with you to work through the QM cert configuration section to set it up so that the outputs are automatically added to your delivery items and processed when the PGI is done or when picking is completed.

      If you find outputs in the delivery, it may be they were already processed. In which case, in QC20 you need to select "2" in the field "processing mode" instead of "1". using a one will only look for outputs that haven't been processed, (printed). The 2 will only look for outputs that have been processed (printed).

      In order for QC20 to work, the COA outputs must be in the delivery.

      The good news is that sine QC21 works for you, you have most of what you need set up as far as master data and configuration. (COA profile and assignments, characteristics, etc..)

      You just need to get the outputs to automatically be applied to the deliveries and automatically processed.
