This scope item manages quality inspection activities in stock handling processes. Quality inspection activities may be relevant for materials during the storage of goods.

During the storage of goods, a warehouse clerk may identify damage that must be checked and investigated. To follow up, the material is posted to quality inspection stock and an inspection lot is created automatically. The quality engineer inspects the material and makes a usage decision that triggers the posting of the material, for example, to unrestricted stock, to blocked stock, or to scrap. Additionally, the quality inspection stock may be moved from one storage location to another, for example, if a specific check can only be done at one location in the plant where the equipment is available.

Key Process Steps

  • Post material from unrestricted or blocked stock to quality inspection stock
  • Execute inspection and record results
  • Make usage decision
  • Review material stock after inspection


  • Integrate quality inspection activities in the stock handling process
  • Detect nonconformance and necessary follow-up actions as soon as possible to avoid inappropriate usage
