    Hi Rahul, I think you should opt inspection type 10 for this and not 06. 06 is meant for inspection for customer returns, whereas here you want to inspect prior to delivery or PGI. It works as follows.

    1. Assign inspection type 10 in material master
    2. Go to QCC0 > Quality inspection > Inspection lot creation > Inspection at shipping  > Assign Inspection Lot Origin to Delivery Type. Assign origin as 10 against appropriate delivery type. Your SD person can help you for identifying this delivery type.
    3. As a result this, as soon as you proceed for sales cycle, system generates inspection lot.
    4. There is option to choose when lot should be created before delivery or after delivery.
    5. You can achieve these controls through QV51.
    6. Thus, unless you clear this lot PGI and subsequently invoicing is not possible.
    7. So when you receive feedback from your customer for 1st piece then clear this lot. Till the time PGI and further processing will remain in block stage.

    Regards, Anand

    There is no standard process in SAP.

    Please review my recommendation.


    1.Define a batch characteristic 'approved customer' and link to customer master.

    2.Assign it to batch class and assign class to batch material.

    3.Develop an enhancement into batch determination process for delivery.


    4.Send pre-sample to custmer and get approval from customer. (not in SAP)

    5.When you get approval from certain customer, add the customer numbers into batch characteristic.

    6.If any customer number has been input in batch master, the batch determination will validate delivery is possible or not for certain customer.

    Usually we call this process CBA (customer batch approval).
