Simplification with quality inspection in embedded Extended warehouse management (EWM) in S/4HANA 1909 release – Part 2

Decentralized EWM requires ‘Inspection rule’ to be set up as a master data in EWM for creation of inspection from Inbound deliveries. Embedded EWM of S/HANA 1909 release does not require ‘Inspection rule’ to be set up in EWM as discussed in my previous blogpost in link With S/4HANA 1909 release, it is now possible in embedded EWM to create inspection lot with QM inspection type 01(Goods Receipt Insp. for Purchase Order), 04 (Goods receipt inspection from production), 08 (Stock transfer inspection), 09 (Recurring inspection of batches) instead of Inspection lot origin 17 i.e Inspection type 08 can be used instead of Inspection type 1708 for stock transfer.  My present blog is to discuss on the observations with ‘Inspection type 08’ in embedded EWM of S/4HANA 1909 release.

A typical process flow for Inspection at goods receipt of Inbound delivery in embedded EWM of S/4HANA 1909 release for a Stock transfer order between storage locations within same plant is depicted in below image.

Inspection lot of Inspection type 08 gets created automatically on Goods receipt of Inbound delivery in embedded EWM as shown in below image.

This is just another simplification and showcases the benefit of EWM within S/4HANA w.r.t Decentralized EWM.

However, observe that the inspection lot does not get created in embedded EWM of S/4HANA 1909 release if the stock transfer is between two plants i.e not between two storage locations within the same plant. Also tested the flow with stock transfer between plants and receiving storage location is Inventory managed (IM) i.e not EWM, then the inspection lot of inspection type 08 gets created on goods received of inbound delivery.

This blog is based on my personal observation and insights. Will appreciate your feedback / comments.

      Hi Mrinal,


      I am trying to replicate the scenario, where the stock is transferring from IM-EWM under same Plant in Imbedded 1909 .But i am failing to create EWM inspection lot . I have setup 08 inspection type and also tried 1701/1708. Non of the scenario worked for me. Is there any thing that i am missing?

      Please advise.


      Best Regards,

      Hi Chandra,

      I am facing the same topic - movement from IM to EWM does not trigger a 08 inspection lot. Could you find a solution?

      Best regards

      Hello SAP Expert,

      I am facing the same problem with "01 - Goods Receipt Insp. for Purchase Order". Have you found a way to resolve the problem. I need to do inspection on a goods receipt on storage location with SAP Embedded warehouse on S/4 HANA.

      Thank you in advance for your help,
