Here is the QM workflow for material setup from beginning (creation of new
material number) to end (generate a COA for a shipment leaving the plant). This
does not include Quality Notifications.
SAP QM Configuration
Most materials require Scenario One. Some materials also require Scenario
Two. These two Scenarios together are the Business Process Flow from the initial
material creation to the final shipment of finished product with associated QM
documentation for the customer.
Scenario One - Used for materials which require an inspection. This generally
applies to in-process and finished goods materials. In some cases it applies to
raw materials. The steps for the most part are listed in sequential order,
although some parts may be optional for certain cases.
1.) MM02 - Material Master, Storage View
2.) MM02 - Inspection Type
3.) CL01, CL02, CL03 Material Class
4.) CL20N (CL20) - Allocate Material to Class
5.) QS31, QS32, QS33, QS34 - Inspection Methods
6.) CT04 - Class (or General) Characteristics (GC)
9.) QS61, QS62 - Material Specifications (obsolete)
10.) C201, C202 - Master Recipe
Scenario Two - Used for Materials which also require a usage decision, batch
search strategy, and certificate of analysis (CoA). This generally applies to
finished goods materials. The steps for the most part are listed in sequential
order, although some parts may be optional for certain cases.
