  This presentation describes the acceptance procedure in the series production of the superconducting cavities for the European XFEL. The cavities are produced by two manufacturers. To ensure they satisfy their performance requirements, the cavities have to pass more than 50 quality inspections, which are combined into four acceptance levels. Part of the inspections are done by the manufacturers, the remaining tests are conducted in a test facility at DESY. The inspections are recorded and processed based on DESY's Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) system, aka DESY EDMS. The DESY EDMS tracks all the individual cavities, keeps their entire production history, and associates all certificates and inspection results with the appropriate parts. The two manufacturers are integrated in the solution and can automatically and promptly upload inspections results to the DESY EDMS. The solution enables DESY to monitor the production progress and to ensure production quality.
