Quality inspections processes using only the QIE as well as using ECC QM

Former Member

Hello Forum,

For few materials we want QM process using only the QIE (using inspection document in QM and taking Usage decision for inspection document). For other expensive materials with complex QM process we want integrated quality inspection process with SAP ECC QM  - inspection lot and full blown QM.

These materials are stored in same warehouse from EWM perspective .

Can two approach co-exists based on materials ?  If, yes then please suggest the setting .

As per my understanding , once we define External QM Systems attributes and installations then it ECC inspection lot is activated at client level .

Regards

Sam

Hi,

"As per my understanding , once we define External QM Systems attributes and installations then it ECC inspection lot is activated at client level ."

No. Well, you need an to define this. But you activate the Inspection Object Type (in this case 4) for each warehouse. If you do not enter there an external system, the inspection is only based on the QIE inspection rule. If you enter the external system, you still have a QIE inspection rule, but the system will call the ERP system to create the inspection doc there, but also the material master in ERP needs an inspection rule setting.

So from my gut feeling I would say - no, it is not possible. But have you ever tried it? I did not yet, I have no idea what happens if the QIE sends a message to ERP and there is no inspection setting for the material there. And if the settings in the QIE inspection rule (which are usually not used with the external system) are then beeing considered. I would recommend to try.

Thanks Juergen for reply. 


If I understand you correctly , after we have set the external QM system attributes and maintained the below configuration at inspection object level, then for one material we maintain the inspection type 17 in ECC material master and for other we don't maintain any inspection type . Did I understood correctly ?

Hi,

Yes, my proposal is to try this. I can not say if it works or what the outcome will be. If EWM is trying to create the inspection doc in ERP and can not find an inspection setting - what will happen with the message? It might get stuck in queue and you might to have to clean this up regularly. Maybe there is also a BADi to control the behaviour.
