In the status profile, you can specify that the delivery of a material from a
vendor must pass through a number of statuses, for example:
You can assign different inspection types (with corresponding task list usages)
to a status. The system then selects the appropriate inspection types and
inspection plans based on the status of the supply relationship.
Before setting the IMG, you should :-
1. Determine whether the supply relationships must pass through certain
statuses and if this is the case, maintain the
corresponding status profiles for the object type QINF.
2. If necessary, assign aninspection type (which indirectly assigns atask list
usage ) to the statuses in the profiles.
3. Store the status profiles in the quality info records (QM control in
procurement) for the relevant materials, vendors and
plants, and set the current statuses for the supply relationships.
IMG Settings :-
Maintain status profiles in 'BS02'.
Assign delivery status for inspection type in 'SM30
Tracking the Status
Each status profile must contain an initial status for newly created supply
relationships. You can also define additional statuses that can be linked
together in a status sequence. You can link all of the statuses together or only
selected ones. You do this by assigning status numbers
to the statuses and by defining a highest and lowest
status number for each status in the sequence.
If a supply relationship is currently in such a status sequence, the system
will only allow one current inspection lot to be created for each status; that
is, it will not allow any further goods receipts until the usage decision is
made for the current lot.
When you make a usage decision to accept an inspection
lot, the system sets the next status
in the status sequence. This is repeated with every successive usage decision,
until the last status is reached. If an inspection lot is rejected, the current
status is retained.
You can also set a status manually.
Inspection Type Determination
You can assign an inspection type to each status.
When an inspection lot for a goods receipt is
created automatically, the system selects
the inspection type that is assigned to the next status and
not the inspection type that is assigned to the current
status. See example!
If there is no inspection type defined for the next status in the sequence or
if the last status has been reached, the system chooses the inspection type that
has been defined as variant 01 or as the preferred inspection type for
inspection lot origin 01.
You can only control the inspection type in this way within status sequences.
If you set the individual statuses in the quality info record manually and they
are not contained in a status sequence (that is, the statuses do not have status
numbers), no control is exerted when the system creates inspection lots for
goods receipts. You must create the corresponding inspection lots manually and
select the inspection type yourself. Authorization Control
The user, who carries out the goods receipt postings requires authorization
for the status change to the supply relationship.
If no authorization exists, the system selects the preferred inspection type
or the inspection type that is defines as variant 01 for inspection lot origin
You must therefore assign all users that are involved in creating inspection
lots at the procurement stage, authorization for the object B_USERSTAT and the
object type QIN.
Status profile '*'
Object type 'QIN'
Authorization key either ' ' or '*'
When you define the object type as 'QIN', this ensures that the user only has
authorization to set the user status in inspection lot processing.
If the last status in a sequence has not been reached, you cannot post any
further goods receipts between the creation of an inspection lot and the usage
decision. You can overcome this problem in the following way. Have the goods
receipt posted by a user, who has no authorization for the object B_USERSTAT or
the object type QIN. If this authorization is missing, the system allows another
goods receipt posting and chooses the usual inspection type at inspection lot

Once you have entered the status profile in the quality info record for the
supply relationship, the system automatically sets the initial status "Supply
relationship created" and updates the status after each successful goods receipt
inspection, starting with the status "Model" until the last status in the series
"Regular delivery" is reached. If an inspection lot is rejected, the last status
is retained. For the status "Supply relationship created", the system selects
the inspection type "Model inspection" that has been defined for the next status
in the sequence "Model" and searches for an inspection plan with the task list
usage described in the inspection type.
If you want to inspect a replicate sample, you have to set the "Initial
status" in the quality info record and then the status "Replicate sample
At the next goods receipt, the system then creates an inspection lot with the
inspection type defined for the replicate sample and searches for an inspection
plan with the task list usage described in the inspection type.
Once the inspection lot has been completed and given the valuation "Accepted"
at the usage decision, the status of the info record is changed to "Regular
