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:

1.    Batch.

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

IMG path – IMG / Logistics Execution / Quality Management/ Quality Notifications / Notification types/Define screen templates

Select the Notification type and after defining the Header screen and the simplified view screen. Add Tab 20\TAB05in the extended view.

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

We can define the following object categories As per the business scenario.

Step – 3

IMG path – IMG / Logistics Execution / Quality Management/ Quality Notifications / Notification Processing/ Assigned objects/ Business Add-In for Implementing an Object Category

Make sure that the following BADI’s (Depending open the objects selected) are activated.

Step – 4

IMG path – IMG / Logistics Execution / Quality Management/ Quality Notifications / Notification Processing/ Assigned objects/ Assign Object Categories for a Notification Type

Select the notification type where the assigned objects need to be activated

Click on the assignment to object catagory

Maintain all the required object catagory to the notification type

To check the functionality

Create one notification and under item tab the assigned object tab ll be available.

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).

      Thanks for this.

      Do you think it is possible to have multiple materials in the same claim notification? I can't seem to find the Item tab, could you help me?

      Thank you. Regards,

      Bruno

      Hello Bruno,

      Do yo have any solution around this - Multiple Materials / Sales Orders against the Notification. Does Assigned Object really solve this - am trying to use it however not achieved yet.

      Appreciate your suggestions.

      Thanks,

      Sumit

      Hi Kounteya,

      From what I've seen, the only/best solution is to use Notification Items. This will be an extra tab, similar to Notification Tasks. With these items, you can create a relationship between one notification and different documents.

      In order to use this, there is one switch that needs activating in the switch framework. Also, for the document flow to work properly, there are a few user-exits that need implementing.

      I have not implemented this yet, so I can't give you more details, but hopefully this will set you on the right path.

      Best of luck.

      Kind regards,

      Bruno

      Serial Number  Batches we are able to assign of main material only , not material we entered in item level, is this expected behaviour?

      Hi

      This is verymuch useful.

      One clarification is that - Production order able to enter different Material reference production order while coming to Serial number system it not allowing to input other material's serial number to be entered in assugned object except the Material inside the Notification part?
