The Business Object Inspection lot is the instruction, addressed
to a plant, to carry out a quality inspection on a certain quantity of a material.
Inspection lots can contain several operations. An operation specifies what activity is to be carried out at a work center.
Operations can contain several inspection characteristics. An
inspection characteristic describes what is to be inspected. The sample
size and also the conditions for acceptance or rejection of the
inspection lot are specified for each inspection characteristic in the inspection operation sample.
Inspection points specify the quantity from which the sample is drawn.
Furthermore, for each operation the required production resources/tools can be specified.
Inspection lots for deliveries to customers or for manufacturing or
repetitive manufacturing orders can be divided up into several partial lots.
Inspection lots can result, for example, from goods movements or deliveries to customers.
They can also be formed for manufacturing or repetitive manufacturing
orders in order to carry out inspections of the material during production.
The inspection results obtained for an inspection lot form a basis for the usage decision.
