Inspection Type

Definition

Determines how an inspection is performed.

Use

When an inspection lot is created, the system uses the inspection lot origin to determine how the inspection lot will be processed. Depending on whether the inspection lot is created automatically or manually, the system determines the inspection type as follows:

  • When the system creates an inspection lot automatically, it determines the inspection type automatically. For more information on how the system determines the inspection type in such cases, see Inspection Type for Automatically Created Lots .

  • When you create an inspection lot manually, you must first specify the inspection lot origin. If more than one inspection type is active for a material in the material master, the system prompts you to choose an inspection type.

    Note Note

    Although the standard system contains a number of predefined inspection types, you can define additional inspection types to meet your requirements for inspection lot processing.
