Creating QM view in Material Master

Logistics -> Quality management -> Quality planning -> Logistics Master Data-> Material -> Extendable Materials (MM50)

Use maintenance status Q and additional selection criteria to get an overview on materials that do not contain a QM view.

Material that is not subject to quality inspection can be deleted from the list (mark and press button ). These materials will not be displayed when starting the transaction (MM50) again. To maintain a QM view for a material, mark it and press the button .

Then you are able to maintain the QM data as mentioned before. Press the button (next screen) to go to the next material.

Quality info record

If a material is subject to quality inspections (according to the control key entered on the QM view), the material/vendor combination has to be released. This is done by creating a quality info record. The quality info record is maintained on plant level. It contains

  • the inspection type for series-inspection at the vendor (acceptance inspection) and a lead time for inspections before the goods receipt. (not used at Continental Teves),
  • blocking options for purchase orders. Blocking options for inquiries, source determination and goods receipt should not be used (not used at Continental Teves),
  • a status profile for administration of vendor relationships (sequence of inspections),
  • the possibility to enter a QA agreement.

Without creating a quality info record an inquiry still can be created, but a purchase order or scheduling agreement cannot be created. Usually the quality info record is created after maintaining the QM view in the material master record.
