Early inspection lot generation on release of Production order thorugh 1704 inspection type in S/4 HANA 1809

Purpose:

The Purpose of this blog to explain How to generate early inspection lot for EWM managed Materials through 1704 inspection type.

Business scenario:

Business want to have final inspection lot on release of Production order for final assembly or sub assembly, which are EWM managed Materials and business want to post stock into same inspection lot as QI Stock till final confirmation.

Solution in SAP:

As per the requirement, Business expecting to have early inspection lot. Since Materials are EWM managed, we should use 1704 inspection type for final goods inspections.

There is no ContolinspLot settings in 1704 inspection type to select early inspection lot option, which is available in 04 inspection type.Even though there is no such option in 1704 inspection type, same functionality can be achieved by using Presampling concept for Production order/ Process order.

  1. Prerequisites:

1.1.SAP Notes

We must check whether following SAP Notes are implemented in system or Not. If Not, we must implement.

2610300 – Inspection document not created for batch subitems with zero quantity

2749295 – No inspection document update after changing process order

2783544 – Pre-Sampling in Production: Inspection Lot not created during Order Release.

1.2. Configuration

1.2.1 QBEXTP must be activated for pre-sampling in production by using transaction BF11

1.2.2 We must activate the Presampling field in IOT-4 (Inspection object type). This can be done through below I­­MG path.

IMG (transaction SPRO) > SCM Extended Warehouse Management >> Extended Warehouse Management >>> Cross-Process Settings >>>> Quality Management >>>>> Basics and integration >>>>>> Warehouse-Dependent Activation of Inspection Object Type.

 

The purpose of this setting is to activate the process to create the inspection document that is released before goods receipt posting. This applies only to inspection object type (IOT) 4 Q-Inspection Product/Batch Inbound Delivery.

If you activate this process, Inspection planning is always performed at activation of delivery.
This inspection process does not block the goods receipt for the internally produced goods in SAP Extended Warehouse Management. If the final decision is set for the inspection document, all further goods receipts for the same product/batch are posted to the stock category as configured for the logistical follow-up action.

1.3. Master data

We must maintain the inspection rule for the warehouse where goods receipts happen for Production order/ Process order through T-Code /SCWM/QRSETUP. For this, we must select Inspection process as i.e. Presampling in Production and 1704 as inspection type

By maintaining all above prerequisites, we can get the early inspection lot upon release of Production order/ Process order.

  1. Generation of Early inspection lot:

2.1. On release of Production order:

Manufacturing team create the Production order / Process order and release the order. Once Production order / Process order get released, System generate the inspection lot and same will reflect in QA32 work list.

If business assign the batch number (Either manually or automatic) during goods receipt, then there will not be any batch number in the inspection lot initailly, but batch number will get update once GR done for this production order.

If the business assigns the batch number (Either manually or automatic) during creation/ release of production order, same batch number will get update in the inspection lot, once it gets created.

Since there is no GR, system shows the actual qty as zero initially and there will not be any Material document associated with this inspection lot.

2.2 After Goods receipt from Production order:

 

After Goods receipt for the production order, Actual lot Qty get updated and there will be Material document/documents associated with this inspection lot.

Cons:

  1. Sometimes, Presampling (QM-EWM) may not generate the early inspection lots in S/4 HANA 1809 even though all required configuration done, the reason for this is “In SMQ2, the queue QI* resp. QIPP* may not registered for processing. Hence the records will wait in queue and cannot be processed which is why system is not generating inspection lots, so we have to register the queue(s) accordingly”
  2. If the business user takes the UD before final confirmation of production order, system will generate the one more inspection lot for the same production order so we have to keep the inspection lot with out UD till final confirmation of production order to avoid multiple inspection lots for same Production order.

Conclusion:

By Maintaining the above-mentioned prerequisites, we can generate the early inspection lot successfully for EWM managed Materials through presampling concept.

  • Hi Hanu

    Very detailed and useful blog!

    Do you have any idea about why the Actual lot quantity does not get updated after GR from production order?

    All settings are the same as in your blog. I am using embedded S/4 1909 EWM.

     

    Thank you.

    • Hi,

      We have to impliment belwo S Notes also if you find any issues

       

      2772971 Inspection update after first goods receipt
      2760463 Deletion flag is set on process order, but inspection document is not cancelled
      2749279 Losmenge wird fälschlicherweise nicht erhöht, obwohl Stichprobe noch nicht berechnet wurde
      2821657 Inspection Lot Summary not working properly with Advanced Production Integration
      2902476 Lot size update after results recording

      • Hi Hanu

        My system component is S4CORE 104, so I tried to implemented note 2821657 and 2902476. Other notes do not support S4CORE 104. Unfortunately, the actual GR quantity still does not get updated after GR from production order.

        Could you help what am missing?

            I set EWM IOT settings with Inspection Setup Origin “No inspection rule” since I want to centrally manage QM data from material master.

             

             

             

             

             

            After Production order is released, Inspection lot gets generated.

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

            Batch data of the finished goods in inspection lot.

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

            After GR posting for the finished goods into EWM warehouse number, the GR quantity does not get updated into the inspection lot. As a result, I cannot make usage decision to change stock type from Quality Inspection into Unrestricted-use or Blocked stock.

            Highly appreciate your help!

            I already registered Q* in SMQ, but after GR is posted no queue starting with Q is generated. That makes me really confusing what is missing.
