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
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 Source
Iinspection and choose Create Inspection Lot.
This would trigger the lot and then it is QE01 & QA11
We have an inprocess inspection set in the PP routing. We have three MIC's
attached that take varying amounts of completion time. SAP will allow
confirmation of that step when only one of the MIC's has been entered. We need
the system to NOT allow confirmation (in CO11N) until the UD is made.
The following steps can be done if more than one operation is there in
1. The operation which requires inspection completion need to be given with
the control key having milestone confirmation.
2. In SPRO-Producion-shop floor control-Operation- Define confirmation
parameters, select the order type that will be used for production.
3. In detail screen, In check area - for Results Rec.QM field,change to error
message if no inspection results exists.
4. The system will check, if any result recording has been carried out for that
5. The drawback will be, if one MIC is recorderd and others left without value,
still the system will allow to confirm the production order.
The above holds good only if there are more than 1 operation. if one
operation is there in the routing, directly we can activate the "04 inspection
type" for the material and move to quality stock during final confirmation.
