The results of an inspection are stored in SAP BlueWorx tables providing a permanent record of an inspection event. These records can be accessed when online via the Inspection Viewer Application. This is a separate application to the main BlueWorx app and is delivered as part of the BlueWorx package. The Inspection Viewer is accessible from: 

  • Its own application tile
  • The Equipment or Functional Location right hand lower hamburger menu option: View Inspection History
  • The SAP GUI Order, FL and Equipment detailed screens if so configured

Business and SAP Context

Note that from SP13 the search functionality for the Inspection Viewer was extended and it now shows results for Inspection beyond the Completed status. For more information see Inspections Explained
