This video delves into the concept of Catalogs in the SAP S/4HANA Quality Management (QM) module. Here are the key points:

  1. Use of Catalogs: Catalogs are used to define, manage, and standardize information consistently for all clients or plants. They are particularly useful for recording and evaluating qualitative data and describing objects.
  2. Code Groups and Codes: In a catalog, information is assigned a unique alphanumeric code and an explanatory text. Code groups are a summary of codes according to contents. For example, when inspecting the color of a solution, predefined codes like “01 – Red”, “02 – White”, “03 – Yellow” can be grouped into a code group named “Color”.
  3. Selected Sets: Selected sets are predefined lists given to users, especially for qualitative characteristics. For example, when inspecting the condition of a box, predefined codes like “01 – Cracked”, “02 – Damaged”, “03 – Scratched” can be provided to the user.
  4. Assigning Catalogs to MICs: Catalogs can be assigned to Master Inspection Characteristics (MICs). This helps in standardizing the input of qualitative data.
  5. Catalog Types: Catalog types define what type of code group it is, whether it’s a characteristic attribute, a task, or a usage decision. In this video, code groups belonging to the catalog type “Characteristic Attribute” are created.
  6. Creating Code Groups: The video provides a step-by-step demonstration of how to create code groups in the SAP system using the transaction code QS41. It shows how to create a code group named “Color” under the catalog type “Characteristic Attribute” and how to add codes to this group.
