Problem when you use WM and QM at the same time

Post by alexdarre » Wed Oct 05, 2011 7:13 am

About a particular problem when you use WM and QM at the same time

Normal operation in QM implies:
(1) Goods are received (for POs)
(2) Quality inspects, OKs, puts goods in "Unrestricted use"
(3) Reception OK in Warehouse
When you have WM, the process is the following
(1) Goods are received (for POs)
(2) Quality inspects, OKs, puts goods in "Unrestricted use"
(3) Reception in warehouse management "902" type bin for locating in bins in warehouse
(4) Transfer Order to locate in warehouse bin
This would be OK, with one BIG problem though:
Stocks are qualified as "Q" status in WM, therefore they cannot be moved any more!

Any help welcome... Alex D

only Inventory managment:
Goods are received (for POs) --> stock posted into Q-status into your storage location
Quality inspection done and recorded with usage decision --> creates a movement that transfers the stock from Q to unrestrcited

with Warehouse management
MM part: Goods are received (for POs) --> stock posted into Q-status into your storage location
WM part: quant in 902 storage type is created automatically with stock status Q - Transfer requirement (TR) for put-away automatically created
MM part: Quality inspection done and recorded with usage decision --> creates a movement that transfers the stock from Q to unrestrcited
WM part: postive and negative quant in 922 storage type automatically created - Posting change notice (PCN) automatically created
(the positive quant in 922 is of status unrestricted, the negative quant with Q status)
You process the PCN with transaction LU04 - The postive and negative quants in 922 disappear - and the quant in 902 is in unrestricted use status now
you convert the TR into a TO to put-away that quant from 902 into a destination storage type
