When you set up a quality association, the system can generate quality orders for various business processes, events, and conditions. The quality association can cover a specific item, a specific group of items, or all items. Quality associations are created in the Quality associations form.

The business process that uses a quality association can be related to purchase orders, sales orders, or production orders.

TipTip

In the Quality associations form, the business process is referred to as the reference type.

Each quality association record defines the set of tests, the acceptable quality level (AQL), and the sampling plan that applies to the quality orders that are generated. A quality association record must be defined for each variation in a business process. For example, you can set up a quality association that generates a quality order either before or after a packing slip is posted.

NoteNote

Inventory quantities that are specified in a quality order are automatically blocked from being issued.

For a given business process, the quality association record identifies the event and the conditions for which a quality order is generated. The conditions can be specific either to a site or to a legal entity. A quality order that involves destructive tests can be generated only when on-hand inventory exists for the event.

The following examples illustrate how a quality association record is defined for the variations in each business process. For each example, the following diagram summarizes the events and conditions that are defined by a quality association record.
