Dependent Characteristic specs in inspection plan for customers

Hi all,

I am using concept of dependent characteristics in inspection plan but it is not behaving as per out requirement.

Let me explain in details.

We manufacture one material say MAT123 for which we have certain MICs.

The range of MIC is different for different customers.

Say for customer XYZ the lower limit is 4.5, target is 4 and upper is 5.0.

For customer ABC the lower limit is 6.5, target is 7 and upper is 8.0.

For customer PQR the lower limit is 9.5, target is 10 and upper is 10.5.

I have created inspection plan (inspection type 4) for this material 'MAT123'.

I have created material assignment for every customer.

Then in inspection overview I have maintained the limits in dependent characteristics specs tab for every material assignment entry.

Ours is MTO scenario. So when the GRN is done against the production order which is created through sales order (customer PQR) we get the inspection lot (inspection type 4).

Now when I am going for result recording I can see that the material specifications (limits) have been copied from the first material assignment which is meant for customer XYZ when actually it has to be for customer PQR.

Am I doing something wrong? I have thought of some alternatives like maintaining sepaarte group counters for every customer but the process wouldn't be automatic and lit needs ot of manual intervention which might lead to mistakes.

I need automatic material specification selection for the inspection lot, by system, depending upon the material assignment in the inspection plan.

Awaiting lightening response on this.
