dear friends

Is Sample drawing procedure a document (t.code- CV01N) with details of how to collect a sample from a lot supplied or produced. How to maintain a sample drawing procedure for a material. Can we use CV01N alone with a descriptive document how to collect sample for a particular material and give object link to the material master instead of using a sample drawing procedure.

Kindly tell me in details.

Hi Selva,

Please find the reply:

1. A liquid material comes in 10 barrels of two ( supplier) batch no.s. In this case if we take samples from 2 barrels (so 2 primary samples).Mix the two to get a single composite sample( so 1 pooled sample) which may be reserved for future inspn. Now we create SDP and shall this SDP include in the sampling procedure (QDV1).If so how to include this in QDV1. or if this SDP is to be directly included in the MIC portion of QP01 instead of sampling procedure. Please tell Which of the above is the right one.

We need to create SDP with pre-decided no. of Primary Sample and Pooled Sample first. It nees to be assigned to inspection Plan Header.In the IP characteristics we may assign Sampling Procedure as usual process.

In SDP we define 2 Primary Samples and 1 pooled sample to be taken from the Inspection Lot. In the above example if the Inspection Lot contains 2 suppliers, we are okay with 2 Primary samples.These 2 are mixed and 1 pooled sample is obtained. Please note that only pooled sample are relevant for distribution to Labs for Inspection.

The movement we assign SDP to the Inspection Plan Header; Primary & Pooled samples along with the numbers are created in the back ground. In the Inspection Characteristics we need to assign the Sampling procedure (with Inspection point with Sample Management selected ) for the characteristics.That is which characteristic needs to be measured with what specification and which Sampling Procedure for the Pooled Sample.

2.In the second scenario, if 2 primary samples are created will the system create 2 inspection lots based on the 2 physical samples and results be recorded for these 2 insp lots separately. I want to know if the no. of lots created depends on the no. of physical samples or based on the MIGO only.

Physical Samples are created based on the Inspection Lot and not vice versa.And Inspection Lot is creted on the options you select while going GR ( one for each Material, PO Item, so on and so far)
