SAP R/3 Quality Management: Making it work for your business

About SAP R/3 Quality Management: Making it work for your business 

"Just having done a QM implementation without consultants, I know how much detail there is to wade through. This book would have been invaluable during that time, and has since allowed me to make several enhancements to my implementation. it touches on nearly every aspect of the QM module, and gets fairly in depth in many areas. The process maps from SAP to the ISO/QS standards alone were worth the price of the book. if you are thinking about SAP QM, don't do it without this book. "


This is simply more than a guide and reference to the SAP Quality Management module, this book introduces R/3 and the principles of quality management systems alongside each other. Before getting inside the module itself, the authors describe the relevant QM business processes and the position of quality management at the heart of the logistics chain. 

With the advantage of this overall perspective, users will be better able to adapt the module, and the R/3 system, to their individual requirements. Using a multitude of illustrated examples, the authors detail the functions of the QM module and enable the reader to identify the most effective solution for their organization.

This book deals with the functions of Quality Management in SAP R/3 in the core processes of logistics: Purchasing, QM in Production, Sales and Distribution, and Service. 

As the Quality Management module is embedded in the individual processes, not only the components themselves but also the interfaces and contact points to other components are explained. Building on the quality-relevant master data of the material and the basic data of the Quality Management module, we describe the processes of inspection planning, inspection lot creation and inspection lot completion. Furthermore, the quality notification, test equipment management and many other topics of significance are discussed in detail. The various functions are clearly described, illustrated with examples, scenarios and screenshots. 

The idea for the book came about during a joint implementation project for the Quality Management module. The successful cooperation and the fact that there has so far been hardly any literature dealing with this subject led to this joint project. The authors have both been able to gather 10 years of experience in quality management. The practical experience of SAP consulting, the experience in implementation of the Quality Management module in companies, the know-how from operative quality management and as R/3 users form an ideal combination that will be particularly informative and interesting for readers.
