If you need to control the sale of an Item/Serial Number using quality control tests, the first configuration step is to use the Batch Quality Control Tests setting to list the tests that can be carried out by the quality control department.

To enter a new Batch Quality Control Test record, first move into the Service Orders module using the [Switch Module] button in the Navigation Centre. Then, if you are using Windows or Mac OS X, click the [Settings] button in the Navigation Centre and then double-click 'Batch Quality Control Tests' in the resulting list. If you are using iOS or Android, select 'Settings' from the Tools menu (with 'wrench' icon) and then tap 'Batch Quality Control Tests' in the 'Settings' list. When the 'Batch Quality Control Tests: Browse' window appears, select 'New' from the Create menu (Windows/Mac OS X) or from the + menu (iOS/Android) to create a new record. Once entered, click [Save] (Windows/Mac OS X) or tap √ (iOS/Android) to save the record.

Code
Enter the unique code by which the Batch Quality Control Test record is to be identified from elsewhere in Standard ERP. The Code can consist of up to ten characters, and you can use both numbers and letters

Comment
Enter the name for the Batch Quality Control Test record. This comment will be shown in the 'Batch Quality Control Tests: Browse' window and the 'Paste Special' list and so should be clear enough to make the selection of the correct Test easy for all users.

Unit
Paste Special    Units setting, Sales Ledger
Specify the unit of measure that is to be used for the Test. For example, if the Dimension (below) is "Volume", a suitable unit might be millilitres or litres.

Dimension
Paste Special    Choices of possible entries
Each Test should consist of the measurement of one property or dimension of the Item. Use 'Paste Special' to choose the dimension here.

The 'Paste Special' list includes the options "User Defined Value 1", "User Defined Value 2" and "User Defined Value 3". These refer to the three User Defined Value fields that you can add to the 'User Values' card of the Item record.
The Batch Quality Control Tests setting is effectively a simple list of all the Tests that can be carried out by the quality control department. The next step is to gather the Tests together in groups. For example, a particular Item will require one group of Tests, while a second Item will require a second group of Tests. Use the Batch Quality Control Templates setting to create groups of Tests: please refer here for details.
