Integration means how two module are interlinked.
As we know QM can not be stand alone module.Its take help & do help to other modules
like say QM_SD
In two stages, Quality will integrate with SD.
1) Before despatching the final goods to customer, there will be a final inspection randomly.
2) Once goods despatched to end customer and in that if there is any quality issues and customer returns the material, at this juncture also, quality inspection will be carried out on the issue raised by customer. For this SD will raise a necessary quality notification thru which, the message will be passed on to quality.
For both the above stages, in material master under Quality view, we would assign inspection type (one for pre despatch and another one for post despatch).
In material master --> go to quality management view --> select inspection set up --> select inspection type --> In inspection give 06 and 10 and click on active --> save it.
Similarly when it comes to PP-QM
Inspection type like 03,13,04 ,05 & 89 can be part of Integration points.Also thing like Inspection points,Control key & work centers can be integration points as they also play imp role in PP-QM integration.
