We want to implement the QA Inspection functionality in our 2013 version. However we cannot find information concerning what GP refers to as the QA Site.
The information indicates how we would mark an item to move it to the QA Site upon receipt but we cannot locate any information to tell us how we see what is in this Site, if it is a predefined site, or if it is configurable by us, how to assign a site to be the QA Site.
Anyone have some experience with this? As always your help is appreciated.
Hi Randy, the QA site is one you would define, just as you would any other Site (Stock Location) in GP.
Hope this helps,

In one of the implementation of Dynamics GP in a manufacturing company, there was a need for using the quality site as illustrated below;
Dynamics GP Implementation:
Therefore, the quality site is nothing more than a usual site. Rather than being configurable on the system, the business process and procedures will apply the rules of using this site.
Graphical Illustration is shown below,

What I am confused about is the check box in the Item Engineering Data window that says "Receive Purchase Orders to QA Site".
How does GP know what site you assigned so it can transfer receipts there?
Thanks you again
Okay, so we are clear now.
The Quality Assurance Process in Dynamics GP is configured as follows (when the Manufacuring Module is registered);
In this case, the item that requires quality inspection will be marked for the item in the Item Engineering Data, the receipt will be posted to the QA site regardless of the site that’s originally entered on the purchase order. If the items meet quality requirements, an inventory transfer transaction to move the items from the quality assurance site to inventory.
In order to set quality requirements, Cards > Manufacturing > Quality Assurance > Procedure Setup. In order to link the Procedure to the selected item, Go to Cards > Manufacturing > Quality Assurance > Item Procedure Setup
After all, a Quality Site is; as illustrated above, like any other site with no unique functionality. Items will be posted to this site in order to check for quality specifications.
Hope this helps,
Please never hesitate to share any further inquiry,
Manufacturing>>Setup>>System Defaults>>QA, enter a site to be used for QA.
Thank you I am off and running now.
It took some time to schedule getting this implemented but now we have. The setup was just as advised here. Thanks
