Define valuation mode

In this step, you can:

You must decide which one of the basic forms you want to use. These forms are as follows:

This also includes a decision based on the tolerance specifications for the measured values of quantitative characteristics.

You can assign suitable, different valuation rules to these basic forms and thereby define different valuation modes, such as:

Simple valuation

The valuation of quantitative characteristics according to whether they lie within the tolerances of the measured results is also included under this heading.

Valuation modes for procedures using sampling schemes:

The system supports a single-sided and double-sided s-method.

Valuation based on the limits of a control chart

Valuation modes for procedures using independent multiple samples:

The valuation modes for procedures with independent multiple samples are suitable for the valuation of characteristics in:

Inspections during production

Standard settings

In the standard system, the table of valuation rules is designed so that all commonly used valuation modes are supported at characteristic level.

The tables have the delivery class G. The following name range is reserved for the user:

SAP Recommendation

Use the valuation modes contained in the standard system.
Do not delete any of the valuation modes contained in the standard system; instead, you can lock the entries you do not need.

Do not delete any of the valuation rules contained in the standard system and under no circumstances delete valuation rules A1, A2, A3, A4, A5, since these were used for programming.

You only need to maintain your own valuation rules in special cases.


1. Determine whether additional or other valuation modes are used in your company. If necessary, you must also define and program appropriate valuation rules for these valuation modes.
2. Determine whether you need additional or other valuation rules. Define these rules only if required.
a) Program corresponding function modules.
b) Assign the valuation rules to the relevant valuation modes.

Additional Information

The valuation mode is stored in the sampling procedure.
If you work with independent, multiple samples, enter an additional valuation rule in the sampling procedure to link the characteristic decisions for individual samples to an overall decision.

The valuation of an inspection characteristic is usually made up of several steps that take place at the following levels:

The valuation rules mentioned above are active at characteristic or sample level. At original value, or value class level, the valuation rules that are dependent on the control key for the characteristic are fixed automatically by the system:

The valuation rule is stored in the valuation mode and can be included in this way in the sampling procedure.
There are two valuation rules for independent multiple samples; one for characteristic-based decisions for individual samples and one for characteristic-based decisions for all samples.

Inspections during production can cover several inspection points and partial lots; valuation rules are also required for these.

You may also require additional valuation rules, for example for characteristic valuation in an inspection of physical samples or maintenance objects.
