Edit Selected Sets for Usage Decisions
You use this configuration item to define the selected sets for usage decisions. In a selected set, you bundle those code groups and codes that are required or allowed for a specific purpose at plant level.
During inspection lot completion, it is only possible to access the usage decisions using selected sets. For each code contained in a selected set you make the following settings:
- Assign a valuation code and a quality score
- Define a proposal for the inventory posting or, if you are using quality management together with warehouse management, define a follow-up action to trigger stock postings.
In addition, you specify one of the codes within the selected set as the default code. This default code is used in processes where a code has to be determined by the system instead of being provided by the user.
You are not allowed to change delivered selected sets, but you can create and edit your own entries.
Edit Code Groups and Codes for Usage Decisions
You use this configuration item to define code groups and codes for making usage decisions in order to standardize the usage decision options quality engineers have when completing an inspection lot. You define the code groups and codes at client level. Technically, code groups and codes for making usage decisions belong to catalog type 3. The combination of the catalog type, the code group, and the code uniquely identifies a usage decision in a coded format. Code groups are made up of eight characters and are used to summarize codes at client level according to various criteria. The codes are made up of four characters, which you use to mnemonically encode a usage decision (for example, A for Accepted and R for Rejected). You define a short text and optionally also a long text for each code.
You are not allowed to change delivered code groups and codes, but you can create and edit your own entries.
Maintain Settings at Plant Level
You use this configuration item to make plant-specific settings relating to quality management, for example, settings that are relevant for a specific inspection type such as the default settings for usage decisions. You can change and supplement several central controlling functions at plant level. These controlling functions relate to the planning and implementation of quality inspections; for technical reasons they are collated in one table. The functions you want to use for quality inspections determine which settings are relevant for your requirements.
In the Details screen for a plant, you can make settings relating to results recording that are mainly relevant for the hierarchical results recording worklist. For example, you can make settings for decimal places or for partial samples. In addition, you can make settings relating to results recording for inspection points, for example, specifying defaults for the valuation of inspection points. These settings are also relevant for the SAP Fiori app for results recording for inspection points.
In the subfolder Inspection Type-Specific Settings for Plant, you can define default settings for usage decisions:
- Default selected set for usage decisions
- You define the selected set relevant for an inspection type in the plant. The system only allows usage decisions that are included in this selected set.
- You can enter different usage decision selected sets for the inspection lot header and for partial lots.
- Settings for automatic usage decision
From the selected set you have assigned to the inspection type you can choose a combination of code group and code that will be used for an automatic usage decision in the following cases:
- When results were recorded and the valuation of all characteristics is Accepted
- When an inspection lot is skippedNoteFor skip lots, an automatic usage decision is made for consistency reasons.
