Introduction

This document aims at covering the key configuration required in Quality Management module for integration with other SAP modules (CO, MM, PP, SD & PM).

QM-FICO Integration –


Quality related costs

  • Appraisal Cost (Defects Prevention cost is associated with inspection processing activities for example, labor, material and equipment costs for inspections)
  • Nonconformity (Nonconformity costs cover internal or external nonconformities that are associated with a product or service (for example, defect costs, rework costs or warranty expenses).


Configuration required –

  • Order Types for booking cost of quality at Plant level and Inspection Type Level
  • Cost center configuration for posting scrap & destroyed quantity

Note:

Order type configured for Coll. Settlement is used with transaction QK01 – Creating and assigning QM orders to materials

Note:

If no order type is defined for an Inspection Type, than the order type defined in the Plant settings is used automatically when QM Lot is created.

QM-MM Integration

Configuration required –

  • Storage location for reserves after Inspection
  • Post to Inspection stock while GR from Vendor
  • Movement Type activation/deactivation for Quality Inspection
  • Material movements for Inventory postings with Usage Decision

Note:

Storage location should be excluded from MRP (Tcode: OMIR).

Note:

  • Used only when Inspection lot is created at the time of GR
  • For skip lots and lots with automatic usage decision, the system performs a ship to stock without posting the material into the quality inspection stock.

Movement Type & Inspection type (Not editable):

Every time when a material is posted, Inspection lot will be created with Inspection type assigned  to Inspection Lot origin for the corresponding movement type configured in this screen.

QM-PP Integration


In-process Inspection lot will be created when the Production order is released in discrete manufacturing. An inspection type can be defined for each Order type in Order type dependent parameters.

Configuration required –

  • Assigning In-process inspection type for PP Orders

QM-SD Integration


Delivery Inspection –

  • Inspection lot for delivery inspection is triggered when delivery is made against a sales order.
  • Partial lot delivery inspection can be triggered by assigning inspection type to the Delivery category

Configuration required –

  • Assignment of Inspection lot origin to delivery type
  • Assignment of Inspection type to delivery category

QM-PM Integration

Calibration

  • Inspection lot for calibration is triggered automatically when PM order is released

Configuration required

  • Assignment of Inspection type-14 to PM order type

    Hi Navin,

    Another fantastic work from your side. This time I don’t have any suggested correction 😉 , but again I have one doubt.

    In the QM-PP integration part, you have mentioned about assigning inspection type to order type. But to carry out routing inspection, MICs need to be defined in routing of the material. Is master data the reason behind not covering that part? I have just this doubt because I feel that this is also a integration part with PP. Kindly clear my doubt.

    Besides, I appreciate your work in explaining the QM-CO integration as I have never worked on this and your document is surely going to help me.

    Looking forward to receive more documents from you Navin.

    Regards,

    ntn

      Hi Nitin, Thanks again for checking the document 🙂 . This inspection type assigned is specific to the order type. Suppose there are two order types that you’re gonna use with same master data (routing etc.,), and the requirement is to have different inspection types for different business processes, then you can assign the inspection type here (Trnx:OPL8). In this case, suppose I’ve 2 inspection types assigned..ex.. 03 & 0301 for PP01 & PP02 order types respectively. Then inspection lot will be created for same lot origin with different inspection type 03 & 0301 when you release the orders PP01 & PP02 resp. You can try one cycle with these settings.

    An excellent document. It is and will be very useful for those with lesser configuration skills attempting these configuration schemes for the first time. Based on the clarity and logical flow, this will be a great training document. I look forward to reading more docs like this. Many thanks and keep up the good work.
