Click Inventory management > Setup > Quality control > Quality groups.

Use this form to set up, edit, and view the quality groups that reflect common testing requirements for items. Items with common testing requirements can then be assigned to a quality group. When the test requirements have been defined in the Test groups form, the rules for automatically generating quality orders can be defined. The rules are defined for a quality group rather than for individual items. Use the Quality associations form to do so. Using quality groups simplifies the definition of rules for automatically generating quality orders.

A manufacturing company purchases several raw materials that have the same testing requirements for incoming inspection. The company defines a quality group and assigns the relevant item numbers to the quality group. The company defines the tests and a test group, assigns the tests to the test group, and defines the quality specifications for each test in the group. The company uses the quality group and the test group to define the rule for automatically generating a quality order. The quality order is generated when a purchase order packing list is posted and the testing requirements are enforced on every receipt of the raw materials.

The same manufacturing company also produces items with the same production testing requirements, and ships items with the same requirements for performing preshipment tests. The company defines two additional quality groups and assigns the relevant item numbers to each quality group. One quality group is used to define the rules to automatically generate a quality order that is related to a production order. The other quality group is used to define the rules to automatically generate a quality order that is related to a sales order.

The following tables provide descriptions for the controls in this form.
