1. Quality Management Quality Management has often been a sort after skill in SAP and it compliments the PP Module. In this document and the next we will focus on the Quality Management Module which will increase your job opportunities and diversify your SAP skills. So here we go. Quality Management Module deals with all the traditional functions of Quality in an organization. It is a kind of add on Module and may be implemented at the beginning itself or it may also be implemented after go-live. There are six major components in Quality Management module. They are: Ø Basic data and settings at Plant level Ø Quality in Procurement Ø Quality Planning Ø Quality Inspection Ø Quality certificate Ø Quality Notification
Configuration settings related to Quality control in procurement are a) Controlling payment b) Restricting vendor supply c) Control on source inspection d) Control if certificates are not received Quality Master Data:Configuration settings related to Quality Master Data are mainly related with .Basic data settings:Common required configuration settings across the QM module are defined here. Quality in Procurement:Inspecting the incoming material from vendor. Configuration settings at plant level contains a) Version control for Master Inspection characteristics and Inspection Method b) Time duration for automatic UD c) Selected set and Code group for inspection point. QM Basic data configuration settings will be referred if any transaction specific data is missing. carrying out the inspection at vendor end are handled in Quality in procurement.
Inspection lot related configuration settings are performed with Quality inspection configuration setting controls the parameters related to inspection lot and inspection lot types.• Master Inspection Characteristics creation. Following are the important configuration settings which we will be discussing. • Codes in QM • Sampling procedure • Task list type to material type for inspection Quality Inspection:Quality inspection contains three essential steps of • Result recording • Evaluation • Usage decision The above steps will be carried out with inspection lot. • Inspection type definition • Default setting for inspection type • Inspection control for movement types • Defining Physical sample parameters • Result recording configuration .
