Use of assigned object functionality in QN
Iin one of my previus projects one of the requirement was to add multiple serial numbers to a qulaity notification. After going through many of the option we came across the assigned object functionality in quality notification which really resolved our issue.
Using this functionality the user can assign multiple objects to a quality notification at item level. This enables you to document a single defect for multiple batches or serial nos in place of creating multiple quality notifications. It also reduces the amount of processing required, and reduces the number of notifications.
The following are object categories provided in the standard system:
2. Serial No.
3. Inspection Lot.
4. Delivery Item.
5. Order no (Production or process)
To be able to use this content for the SAP version should be ECC 6.0 and enhancement pack 4(EHP4). Instead of going for ABAP development the following config can be done to have this functionality
Step – 1

For adding these details in the reference screen (Optional) add Screen area 840 in the simplified view.
Step – 2
IMG path – IMG / Logistics Execution / Quality Management/ Quality Notifications / Notification Processing/ Assigned objects/ Define Object Categories

After filling the material detail in reference tab go to Item tab. Select the defect code for the item
Go to the Assign object tab and enter the object type and the details.
We can also enter ranges or generic values for the assigned objects.
·When you enter a range (such as 1 – 5), the system adopts all batches and/or serial numbers where the key is between 1 and 5 as assigned objects in the notification item.
When you enter a range (such as 5*), the system adopts all batches and/or serial numbers where the key is starts with 5 as assigned objects in the notification item.
To get the detailed report QM19 can be used
The assigned objects function is also added in the Notification list (multi level).
