Inspection Lot Creation - Inspection processing begins with the creation of inspection lot, which can be created manually or automatically. There are several functions to be carried out that will create and prepare an inspection lot for processing. Inspection lot gets created as a result of goods movement like goods receipt from Vendor, Goods receipt from Production, Goods issue to Customer.......................
Selection of Inspection Specs - As the inspection lot is created an inspection specification gets assigned to it. An inspection specification should be assigned to inspection lot if you want to enter results and take Usage Decision. Inspection specification can be assigned manually by user or automatically by system. There are different criteria considered during inspection specification assignment like the inspection type, inspection lot origin, Material-Vendor-Plant combination.........................
Sample Drawing - Relevant sampling procedures are selected, Once the inspection specification is assigned to the inspection lot the sample size is to be calculated for the inspection lot. Calculation of sample size can be done manually or automatically. The system can only calculate the sample size automatically if you use an inspection specification to inspect the goods in the inspection lot.
Actual inspection - Inspection method and equipments are selected.
Results Recording - Results of Characteristics are recorded. Recording and processing of results for inspection characteristics are carried out. Results recording will be based on Characteristics. The recorded results data will be used for all documentation and evaluation for Quality Control Purposes.
Defects Recording - Defects found during inspection are recorded. A defect is any property or attribute of a material, product or process that does not meet the inspection characteristic specifications. You record the defects with the help of predefined defect codes maintained in the inspection catalogs. Once a defect record has been created, it is saved in the system as a quality notification. A quality notification is a system-supported problem message that you can use to process different types of problems relating to poor-quality goods or services.
Usage Decision - Decision on Accept/ Reject is recorded. With the Usage Decision we decide if the material is OK/ not OK.
Goods Movement - After the Usage Decision the material under inspection is released and posted to Unrestricted/ Blocked Use.
