Quality inspection is performed on received goods according to the specifications in the goods receiving method, parameter 040='Quality inspection reporting' in ‘Goods Receiving Method. Open’ (PPS345/E). There it is specified whether QI is mandatory or optional, or if dynamic quality control is used, and which reporting alternative is valid. An example of a reporting alternative is 'always performed with mandatory reporting'.
As long as no parameters are changed, the same goods receiving method is always proposed when a certain item is purchased from a supplier. However, it can be changed manually for each purchase order line. In this way a different receiving method can be assigned when ordering, so that an item that is usually not inspected will instead be inspected.
