Test Plan Setup on Items and Item Variants
The Item Test Order Option, Sampling Method and Inspection Severity Code can be allocated to the respective item in the Test Plan Setup page, which is accessed from the Item Card.
Test Plan Setup Page
In this page, assign test plans to different Source Types (such as Purchase Orders, Production Orders, and so on) with Item, Item Variant, Item Category, or Source No. to create individual setups. Test Orders/Test Incidents can be created based on Item Variants with separate Test Plans. Furthermore, this page offers the opportunity to enter customer-specific or vendor-specific test plans.
The fields in the General section are described in the following table.
|Source Type Filter||Source type to allocate the test plan to. The options are Inventory, Purchase Order, Purchase Receipt, Sales Order, Sales Return Order, Sales Return Receipt, Production Order, Operation, None, Order-specific, and Component.|
|Source No. Filter||Number of the source type selected in the Source Type Filter field.|
|Item No. Filter||Item to be affected by these settings.|
|Variant Code Filter||Item variant to be affected by these settings.|
|Item Category Filter||Item category to be affected by these settings.|
The fields in the Lines FastTab are described in the following table.
|Item Test Order Option||Defines the level on which an item should be tested. The options are:
- No Test: no test orders are created.
- Test on Item Level: a single test order is created for the item, regardless of lot- or serial numbers.
- Test on Lot No.: a test order is created for each lot number.
- Test on Serial No.: a test order is created for each serial number.
For example, if a user posts a Receipt with two lots (Lot A and Lot B) the following tests are created, based on the Item Test Order Option:
- Test on Item Level: One Test Order: Item No. is populated in the General FastTab; lot information is empty on the Test Plan Source FastTab.
- Test on Lot No.: Two Test Orders (one for each lot): Item No. and Lot No. are populated.
|Test Plan No.||Number of the test plan that should be allocated to the item depending on the source type.|
|Adjust Lot Status on Test||If selected, the lot status will automatically be set to:
- The value in the Lot-/Serial No.-Status on Test Order Release field in the Quality Assurance Setup page when a test order is Released.
- The value in the Lot-/Serial No.-Status on Test Order Finish field in the Quality Assurance Setup page when a test order is Finished.
|No Test Order on Subcontr.||If selected, prevents duplicate testing requirements when creating a Purchase Order for a Production Order line, which may already contain Test Plan Setup (Source Type = Purchase Receipt) for the subcontracting order.|
|Test Wait Time||Indicates the time needed to start testing, beginning from the Test Order creation. For example, it may define offset time to start testing after goods receipt posting. The Wait Time Unit of Meas. Code field is required to specify this time.
For more information, see Test Order Scheduling.
|Wait Time Unit of Meas. Code||Used with the Test Wait Time field to complete the time specification. Codes of Capacity Units of Measure (from manufacturing) can be assigned here.
For more information, see Test Order Scheduling.
|Inspection Level||Indicates the Inspection Level for counting (AQL) to be used for testing; if this field is empty, Inspection Level II is used.|
|Insp. Severity on Test Prop.||Indicates whether an inspection severity has been assigned to a test property (see Inspection Severities of Test Properties).|
|Inspection Severity Code||Required if the DIN ISO 2859 option is selected in the Sampling Method field.|
|Sampling Method||Defines for the item if the sampling method according to DIN ISO 2859 should be applied.
If the DIN ISO 2859 option is selected, the Inspection Severity Code and Sampling Method fields must be filled with the ISO2859 or DIN2859 values. In this case, an acceptance sample testing is applied based on faulty parts or errors.
Copy Item Test Plan Setup
Existing Test Plan Setup records can be copied from a selected item to a selection of one or more items using the Create Item Test Plan Setup function. This function can be accessed from the Test Plan Setup page by choosing the Copy Test Plan Setup action or using Tell Me by entering Create Item Test Plan Setup and then choosing the related link.
Activities and provides the ability to copy the Test Plan Setup for a specific Source Type or for all existing Source Types of the "Template" Item.
The Template Item setup(s) can be copied to one or more items based on specific item filters in one step.
Inspection Severities of Test Properties
Different schedules can be assigned to each test property so that testing is done based on the Inspection Severities of a property as opposed to the Inspection Severity of the overall test plan.
Properties without a specific Inspection Severity will use the one assigned to the Test Plan Setup line.
In the Test Plan Setup page, choose the Property Inspection Severities action to open the Item Test Prop. Insp. Severities page.
If the first line has the Test Each Used check box selected, this means that a value has been entered in the Test Each (Times) field for the test property, and therefore an Inspection Severity cannot be entered on this line. If a different Inspection Severity Code is entered for a property, the Insp. Severity on Test Prop. check box is selected on the Test Plan Setup page when the Item Test Prop. Insp. Severities page is closed.
The Sample Planning action opens the Sample Plannings page where you can define the criteria for creating samples for the selected test plan setup. You can assign a sample occurrence code that may or may not be linked to a sample size template chart or you can create your own sample size chart.
For more information, see Sample Size Charts.
