Inspection of Packaging Material at the packing line


Packaging material is issued against an order. It had gone through inspection at GR from vendor but some defects cannot be identified until it goes into packing. Now, when the defects are found, the entire lot or the quantity that is seemingly defected is removed and put aside. the vendor comes after a few days to evaluate. until then, the packaging material is lying around and the store issues new material to continue packing. This causes problems:

  1. that batch is exhausted (the one that was running) and when the vendor comes, the material, that was pout aside has no ID
  2. system shows that over issuance was done - extra issuance to the order and the material put aside is also shown as given and available

How do we handle this? is there a process for inspection against line rejection for JUST the packaging material? Can a defected quantity of JUST packaging material be put into block/different store and not show as available for packing so that when the store issues new material, it will be shown that it was given as extra and not over issuance? Can the put aside lot maintain its batch and the new issuance continue into the next batch? Let me know.
