The purpose of this blog explain how to customize QM – EWM integration on partial lot for inspection lot process. SAP 1709 enables to use this process.
Sytem provides to record inspection results and usage decision for partial quantities for inspection lot For instance, one inspection lot which contain many handling units can be inspected for per handling unit. Then, system creates a partial lot for every handling unit and triggers follow-up actions for the partial lot quantities. Also, stock can be posted blocked or unrestricted stock MM and EWM, when partial usage decision is made.
Firstly, Code groups should be maintained. In order to find maintain code groups, you maintain usage decision codes in Customizing for Quality Management under > Quality Inspection > Inspection Lot Completion > Edit Code Groups and Codes for Usage Decisions
Choose “new entires”, code group and definition are defined. status is selected to released.
Select EWM usage decision and click on codes for usage decision.
Codes that are accept and reject define.
Then, you should maintain follow-up actions for usage decisions and indicate that they are EWM follow-up actions in Customizing for Extended Warehouse Management under > Cross Process Settings > Quality Management > Result Maintain Follow-Up Actions .
Choose “new entires”, follow up function is defined. Function Follow-up is selected to “Usage Decision for Partial lot”.
Change usage decision for partial lot on function follow up and click on function module.
QTFA_EWM_LOG_FOLLOW_UP_S4 function module should be added.
You should maintain code sets for decisions for partial quantities (partial lots) in Customizing for Quality Management under > Quality Inspection Inspection Lot Completion > Edit Selected Sets for Usage Decisions .
Code groups , following up actions (EWM_AD, EWM_B) and posting in UD are defined.
You should assign the code sets for your warehouse in Customizing for Quality Management under > Basic Settings Maintain Settings at Plant Level .
Inspection Type – specific setting for plant is chosen.
Click on new entries button and Inspection type, selected set and selected set (partial lot) parameters value are defined.
For Instance, Inspection Type: 1701 EWM: Goods Receipt Insp. for Pur. Order, Se. Set: EWMKU (Usage decision), PL Set. Set: EWMKK (Usage decision for partial lot)
In order to, create inspection lot for 17 inspection origin, ınspection type and QM – EWM ıntegration should be maintained.
In QA32 worklist for inspection lots, when inspections are completed, usage decision button is selected.
Click on EWM Inspection.
Handling units are listed on one inspection lot. Select handling units and click on mass inspection for selected items.
NOTE: one inpection lot = one handling unit can be created.
Choose partial lot decision code that is accept or reject.
Then, screen saved. Usage decision for 3 partial lot is completed. Stocks are transferred to unrestricted stock.
After saved inspection lot. when usage decision screen is entered again, partial lots which is made usage decision are listed.
Click on EWM Inspection button again and another handling units are listed. Because, we have given usage decision for 3 handling units before.
Select handling units and click on mass inspection for selected items.
Usage decision for partial lot is chosen that is reject. Then, screen saved. Usage decision for another 3 partial lot is completed. Stocks are transferred to blocked stock.
In Warehouse Management Monitor program, stocks are reported and Physical stocks can be chosen for material stock status.
You can see material’s handling units stock status which is made usage decision partial lots.
If you make usage decision without partial lot, the system triggers usage decision just remaining handling units.
Finally, when inspection lot is completed and made usage decision or usage decision partial lot, the system triggers stock movements MM and EWM.
You can see material’s stock status on MMBE.
You can change stock posting MM and EWM, as one inspection lot includes handling units. In my opinion, if you customize as this blog for QM – EWM partial lot, you can advance partial decision for inspection lot process.
