Picture Description

This Goods Receipt Inspection Process in SAP ensures incoming materials meet quality standards before they’re used in further production or distribution. Here’s a structured breakdown of the process:

  1. Purchase Order Creation in SAP 🛒:
    • The procurement department issues a purchase order that specifies material requirements.
  2. Goods Receipt in SAP🚚:
    • Upon goods arrival, the warehouse clerk confirms the receipt in the system.
    • If inspection is required for the material, an inspection lot is automatically generated.
    • This inspection lot contains key details like the purchase order item, material, and received quantity.
    • The materials are placed in inspection stock until quality checks are complete.
  3. Inspection Stock 🔍:
    • The materials in this stock are temporarily restricted from further processes.
  4. Inspection 👨‍💻:
    • Quality technicians inspect the materials based on the predefined inspection plan.
    • Two approaches are employed:
      • Standard Inspection: Follows a detailed plan with specific checks and records results.
      • Exception-Based Inspection: Focuses on deviations, documenting defects comprehensively.
    • Both approaches can be combined for a thorough inspection.
  5. Usage Decision (UD) – Positive :
    • If the quality checks are successful, the material is moved to unrestricted-use stock for further processes.
  6. Usage Decision (UD) – Negative :
    • If issues are found, the material is moved to blocked stock, and the supplier is notified through a quality complaint process.

This process integrates both automated and manual quality controls to ensure that only high-quality materials are accepted and used.
