During production, it may be necessary for you to carry out a several
individual inspections at different intervals or as a result of certain events.
With the component QM in Production, you can process inspections during a
production operation (while manufacturing discrete parts) or a process phase
(while producing process goods).
The inspection characteristics in Quality Management (QM) are integrated in
the work scheduling (Material Master view)
and production processing functions (routing
operations) of the Production Planning (PP) component.
Using inspection points for an inspection during production, you can:
Inspection lot creation
- Inspect materials at regular intervals
- Time-based intervals (for example, an inspection point every hour or
for each work shift)
- Quantity-based intervals (for example, an inspection point for each
- Freely-defined intervals (for example, an inspection point each time
a tool change occurs)
- Record inspection results for each inspection point (for example, for
each container or work shift) and valuate each inspection point with a
- Assign a produced quantity to each inspection point and allocate the
inspection point quantities to partial lots
It is recommended that you allocate inspection points with the same usage
decision to partial lots. This allows you to manage partial quantities that
differ in quality. In this way, you can monitor the production process
continuously with respect to the inspection characteristics.
When a production order is released, the system creates an inspection lot
record to manage the inspection specifications and inspection results for all
Recording inspection results for an inspection point
When you record inspection results in QM, you can also
confirm the operations in the PP component.
This can occur automatically. You can confirm the inspection point quantities in
PP in the form of a partial or final confirmation. If you want to confirm
additional data in production planning (in addition to the inspection point
quantities and target activities), you can call up a dialog box for a detailed
confirmation. In this dialog box, you can record such information as actual
times or personnel-related data. You can also record defects.
When you process partial lots and confirm an inspection point, the system
automatically proposes a "usage decision"
for each partial lot based on the inspection point valuation. You can change the
proposed code within the predefined code group.
The usage decision for the inspection lot confirms that all inspections have
been completed or that the production order has been completed from a QM
standpoint. To make the usage decision for the inspection lot, you can define a
job that makes automatic usage decisions at predefined intervals, once the
orders have been completed.
Proposed quantity for a goods receipt from production
The inspection point quantities for the last QM-relevant operation are
proposed for the goods receipt posting for the order. Only the quantities
confirmed to PP as a yield or rework quantities are taken into consideration.
