Why don't you apply the source inspection, 01,101


Source Inspection :


Source inspections are performed upon request and with the participation of the customer or sold-to party. A source inspection can performed by the receiver of the service, the vendor in the presence of the receiver or by a person or third party (for example, a surveyor) appointed by him.

Inspection lots for source inspections that reference a purchasing document can be created with or without specifying a (vendor) batch (Inspect without batch indicator in worklist for source inspections).

If you did not specify a (vendor) batch, the system creates the inspection lot for batch number ", ,". If the batch is later specified in the purchase order at a later time, the system does not create a new inspection lot for the source inspection. In the Customizing settings for the QM in Procurement control key, you can specify whether or not a new inspection lot should be created during a goods receipt (GR control/Batch).

If you specified a (vendor) batch, the system creates an inspection lot for this batch. If the batch is later specified in the purchase order, the system creates a new inspection lot for the source inspection or goods receipt.

The batch is displayed in the inspection lot.

If the inspection lot for the source inspection is rejected for goods receipt item, the Customizing settings for the QM in procurement control key determines whether:

A goods receipt posting is not possible or

A quality notification is not created and a new inspection lot is created

Triggering of Source Inspections


You create a list of materials with outstanding purchase orders and scheduling agreements (with no goods receipt posted or inspection lot created), which are scheduled for source inspections at the vendors. A source inspection is initiated and supervised by the customer, ordering party or his representative. A source inspection can be carried out by:

The party receiving the goods or services

The vendor, in the presence of the recipient

A third party empowered by the recipient


When the system generates a worklist for source inspections, it only considers materials and vendors for which:

Quality information records exist (these records specify a source inspection as the inspection type).

The inspection type has been defined and activated in the material master record.


When you generate a worklist for source inspections, the system considers a period during which the inspection must be performed (including the lead time defined in the quality information record).

Triggering Source Inspections Manually:

You can manually generate a list of materials that are defined for a source inspection. If you want to use the same selection criteria more than once, you can define a report variant. Use the following steps to execute Source Inspection Manually:

1.Choose Logistics ® Quality management ® Quality inspection ® Worklist ® Inspection lot creation ® Source inspection ® Trigger manually.

The screen for entering selection criteria appears.

If you define a report variant using the user's logon name or a predefined name in Customizing, the defined selection criteria are automatically displayed. If you defined a report variant using a miscellaneous name, choose Goto ® Variants ® Get to call up the report variant.

2.If you did not define a report variant, enter the desired selection criteria (for example, vendor, material and plant).

The system provides default values for the planned delivery date and opening period. You can change these default values.

3.Choose one of the following options to generate the selection list:

Program ® Execute

Program ® Execute and print

Program ® Execute in background

The system creates a list of materials that are defined for a source inspection.

4.There are the following options:

Create an inspection lot for an item in the list

Display the scheduling agreement (purchase order) for a material

Display the quality information record for a material

Job Planning and Execution:

You can use the job planning and execution functions to trigger a source inspection automatically at predefined intervals

Hope you will get some idea,

Thanks and regards
