Quality Inspection Samples to external testing
I am in a Pharmaceutical environment and using QM with Inspection Lots.
I have a requirement to ship samples of a product that has been semi finished by an external supplier against a Purchase Order then send it for testing to a specific external company, I would like to do this with out releasing the stock to allow the shipment. When the testing is complete the inspection lot can be released and then the samples consumed.
My Ideal solution would be that when the inspection lot is created we can assign the ship to party and then ship the goods using SD delivery functionality and therefore confirm the goods issue so we have a record it has been shipped
I do not want to release the goods to allow shipment and I need to show the total goods receipt to pay the supplier against his invoice.
Has anyone tried or had to do something like this before? I can t believe that SAP needs a work around to manage this
