Inspection Lots and Quality Notifications

When you use the quality management functions in the logistics supply chain of SAP S/4HANA, you differentiate between two types of processes, planned processes, and event controlled processes.

  • Planned processes are standard processes planned in advance and are regularly triggered (for example, from inspections during production and goods receipt inspections). The processes are based on inspection lots. They contain all the data for the inspection such as material, order, inspection specifications, inspection lot size, inspected quantity and, if required, quality management order.
  • Event-controlled processes occur spontaneously (for example, from defects in production and damaged goods at goods receipt). You can record and process the problems that arise in a quality notification or with defect recording.

Play the video and learn how to process inspection lots and quality notifications.
