Flexible specification selection at Inspection Lot creation

HI All,

This Blog is to make aware of the Flexible specification selection functionality that is available in SAP QM. Flexible specification are used when the inspections are not planned in advance example of it can be Processing Complaint, processing Service Issues.Stability studies, and during Rework Processing To implement this Flexible specification we have to implement a BADI.QPAP_FLEX_PLAN

 

Flexible Specification Selection at Lot creation works for the Following Cases.

1 .Inspection Lot creation.

2 . if the samples are not calculated for the inspection lot.

3.  if the sample calculation has been reset for the inspection Lot.

 

The Following Specification can be Changed at the Lot creation.

1.Operation Short Text

2.Sampling Procedure,

3.Control indicator to decide whether this characteristics is required or optional

4.MIC Specification ( Target value, Decimal Places, specification limits like upper limit, lower etc)

5.Inspection method.

6.Selected sets.

7. Short text and info field for characteristics.

 

You an navigate to path QM > Environment > Tools > BADI’s > Quality inspection¬† ¬†>Badi for Flexible inspection selection.

Note – As per the Standard the Flexible specification is only for Lot origin 89 and 16. To use it for other origin you need to create a Z implementation and mention the Lot origin in the Filter values of the BADI

 

For demonstration, A z implementation has been created for Lot origin 01 and when a GR for the PO is done, the system will throw pop-up for specification Selection.

 

Sample Code

Create a Z implementation.

 

Create Filter Values.

Add the Below code in the method shown

 

 

 

Flexible Selection of inspection specification during GR of Purchase order.

 

I hope this Blog helps to All QM consultants

    • Hi Prasath,

      You cannot add MIC during the GR. if i assume that the specification are not fixed at the time of GR then, there are 2 ways to solve this

      1. Using Unplanned MIC. Create a blank inspection plan with just operation and then during Results recording you can add the Unplanned Characteristics…

      2. Using the above approach . Create a Universal plan and then While doing the GR select the Required MIC for the Inspection Lot. You can change the Specification limits during Results recording as well using the Flexible Specification. but note that you cannot add MIC using Flexible Specification.

       

      Please note – A system status FLEX will be added to the inspection lot for which flexible specification as been used.

       

      Thanks and Regards,
