n the R/3 system, you can define different requirement models as
target QM systems and different existing
systems as actual QM systems. In addition,
for each actual QM system, you define the most suitable target system.
You can valuate the various QM systems that are defined in the SAP System.
This valuation exerts no control; it serves as information only. For example,
using this valuation you can determine whether a valid certificate exists, the
origin of the certificate, or the score for the system audit.
A customer wants a vendor to verify the existence of a QM system that complies
with standard ISO 9003.
The vendor has a certificate that states that his system complies with
ISO 9001, with an audit score > 80.
A comparison shows that in this particular case, both systems are equivalent:
Target QM system 9003 (ISO 9003, with
certificate) Actual QM system 1180 (ISO
9001, with certificate, audit score > 80)
Assignment Actual/target 1180 - 9003
You can assign an actual QM system with the
identification skip which means that the system does not create
inspection lots for an acceptance inspection.
The requirements for QM systems are defined in the
material master at the plant level.
The QM system that is actually present is defined in the
vendor master at the client level or in the
quality info record for a
combination of material/vendor at the plant
In procurement (request for quotation and purchase order), the system checks
whether the vendor's actual QM system meets the target QM system's requirements
for the material. In doing so, the system uses the assignment list that you
created in activity 3. If the requirement is not fulfilled, the system responds
- Warning message for requests for quotations
- Error message for purchase orders
Before the setting the IMG in transaction OQB7,
you should :-
Determine the requirements that exist for vendor QM systems in your
Note that such requirements may stem from the requirements of your
Define the target QM systems in the table.
Determine which actual QM systems your vendors use.
If you want to valuate these systems, define a valuation profile.
Define the actual QM systems and their valuation.
Assign the target QM system to the actual QM system whose requirements
You must do this in the following steps:
a) Make all obvious assignments. For example, the QM system that conforms to
ISO 9001 also conforms to the
requirements of ISO 9003.
b) In those cases where you first have to check the specifications of the QM
systems and the certification
requirements, supplement the assignment list as necessary.
