Quality orders (form) [AX 2012]

Updated: February 21, 2014

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

Click Inventory management > Periodic > Quality management > Quality orders.

Use this form to identify the tests and to record test results and test quantity for a specific item.

The tests initially reflect the test group that is assigned to the quality order. Tests can be added, deleted, or changed. A quality order can be manually created or automatically generated based on rules that are defined in the Quality associations form. A quality order is associated with an item in a sales order, a purchase order, a quarantine order, a production order, a production order routing operation, or an on-hand inventory balance. Items that are specified for inspection in a quality order are automatically blocked from issue or consumption.

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

The tabs and controls that were added to this form for the Warehouse management features in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3 are not described in this topic. For information about these features, see Warehouse management.
