Definition

Determines how a material, piece of equipment, or functional location is to be inspected.

Use

When an inspection lot is created, the system uses the inspection lot origin and active inspection type(s) 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:

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.

Inspection lot processing

  • Assignment of a status profile
  • Proposal of a QM order type for the inspection type
  • Proposal of a selected set for the usage decision

Print control

  • Specifying when inspection instruction will be printed
  • Specifying when sample-drawing instruction will be printed

Results recording

  • Specifying the default recording view
  • Specifying which notification type will be created for activated defects
  • Specifying how many notifications will be created for each inspection lot
