Multiple Inspection Lots Issue


Multiple Inspection Lots Issue.

Material master is set up with the QM view and contains an entry of 2 for each material, batch, stor loc combination.

This selection should only trigger a QI inspection for the 1st time a new batch/material combo is being received into the same location.

This is source Inspection activated Material and it has activated 01 Inspection type not 0101.

For Example:

We received Batch 12072011D for PO number 1

We created source inspection with reference to PO. Inspection lot got generated.

At the time of goods receipt for the above mentioned PO & Batch number system is not generating Inspection lot(It should not) No problem at this point.

For the PO number 2, When I try to receive the same batch 12072011D, at the time of goods receipt,It is generating Inspection lot.For 3rd and 4th time it is not generatiing inspection lot for the same batch number 12072011D.

There are 2 points according to My Obsevation:

1).Since this Material is a source inspection activated Material,system should not create inspection lot at the time of goods receipt.

2).This Material Has Inspection control key as entry of 2 for each material, batch, stor loc combination.

I am not sure, Is this problem because of 01 Inspection type activated for this Material.

Note: This happening only for new PO and receiving the same batch numbers.

I need some experts helps to figure it out.

    Hi Suman,

    If you have mentioned the batch in your PO, then while doing the GR for partial quantity for the first time system will create the Inspection Lot. You can record the usage decision for this lot and follow the further processing. When you do the partial GR for the second time, the system does not ceate a new Inspection lot. If you see the stock overview, you can see the second partial quantity is posted to the same batch just by doing the GR.

    If you need an Inspection lot to be created for each partial GR, then go to the material master QM view and, in the details of Inspection set up, there will be a setting for "Control insLot" where you can choose the relevant item from the dropdown and do further unit testing to confirm that your requirements are met.

    Hope this helps.

    • Hi Suman,

      I too think it is because the inspection type 01 is selected.

      The Q-Info Record is used to trigger a source inspection lot for a material/vendor and plant. Under the tab key Inspection Control in Q-Info Record, you would find vendor source Inspection and under that select the inspection type desired for source inspection (say 01,0101) and give the lead time required to perform the inspection in days (say 10 days). If you do not want to trigger an inspection lot @ GR for a source Inspection lot then check the box (Source Insp. No Gr).

      Ensure that the inspection type selected @ source inspection is activated in the Material Master Record for the chosen material in the Quality Management View.

      To trigger the lot manually you need to have some open purchase orders for the material/plant/vendor. Go to transaction QI07 and give the material code,vendor,plant and opening period. When you execute the transaction you would find open purchase orders for the given input data. Select the Purchase Order you wish to perform S.I and choose Create Inspection Lot.

      This would trigger the lot and then it is QE01 & QA11.
