Is there any possibility to get the Results recored into the Data Collection from a POD in SAP ERP (for example: Batch Number for a specific Material)? If yes, can these also be triggered in the PO-Confirmation?
You may need to use custom code like custom iflow / bapi call to send collected data to ECC on events which are available in automatic trigger.
Alternately, you can use Inspection lot result recording in DM which is integrated with ECC. Please check Blog.
By design, Data Collection is meant to collect material / process parameters etc (like torque, temperature, pressure and etc, for example) against SFCs and Charges, but it’s indeed not integrated back to ERP out of the box.
For traceability / genealogy purposes, you can create Data Fields, assign to a Data Types and set a Data Type to materials in Manage Materials app on Data to Collect at Assembly setting, so it can be collected during Component Assembly in Discrete (Work Center and Operation) PODs.
Some Data Fields and Types are used out of the box, like ERP_SERIAL_NUMBER, SFC and INV_SFC, which are integrated automatically back to ERP for batch and serial number consumption / goods issue posting. See Report Serial and Batch Numbers for Semi-Finished Components for more details.
You can always create new / extra custom Data Fields like Vendor, Lot, etc, to be collected during component assembly in POD for traceability purposes.
QM In-process Inspection is indeed a good way to capture and report parameters and characteristics back to ERP QM ootb.
Hope it helps,
