Lot Control Level in Regulatory Attributes Control File

Posted on: September 21, 2018 | By: Tim Lovely | QAD Manufacturing, QAD Business Process, QAD Distribution

QAD’s Regulatory Attributes Control File, part of its Compliance functionality often used by Medical Device manufacturers, provides a powerful control over management of lots within a domain.

The Lot Control Level is an important consideration in the implementation of Compliance functionality. The settings are discussed below:

  • Lot Control 0 – This setting indicates that there will be no checks for Lot/Serial numbers when transacted. A Lot/serial number can be re-used for different items with little control

  • Lot Control 1 – This setting indicates that no duplicate Item Number Lot/Serial combinations are allowed

  • Lot Control 2 – This is the most rigid of the options, indicating that a Lot/Serial number cannot be reused ever.

It is important to note that the settings above are domain specific. This means that with Lot Control 2, for example, a Lot/Serial can be created in one domain and subsequently received into another domain. However, a Lot/Serial cannot be created at one site in a domain, shipped on a Sales Order, and received against a Purchase Order in a separate site within the same domain.
