Batch Master Changes reflecting all plant with same Batch


When we are doing any change in Batch Master ( MSC2n ) for one plant like Shelf Life expiry date or Classification data for one plant.

its automatically reflect on all plants for same batch.


Material : 123456

Batch : 10925

Shelf Life Expiry is : 31.12.2014

Plant : 1000

This Batch is available on 10 plants for same material.

Now when i change Expiry date from 31.12.2014 to 31.12.2015 on Plant 1000 for Batch 10925

its also change on all other 10 plants.

How can we restrict this behaviour we only want to change on 1000 plant . should not change other plats.

    the shelf life is defined at general material level and not at plant level, the fields MHDRZ and MHDRB are stored in MARA.

    A batch 123 can only have a different VFDAT shelf life expiration date in your plants if your batch level is plant level.

    In short it is not possible in your case, as I know from your description that your batch level cannot be plant level.

    The only solution would be to create an extra batch number and move the stock over to the new batch.

    if you produce a batch of medicine and ship it to various plants in the world for distribution, then it is for me not logical that the same batch could for example have a different shelf life in Africa than in Europe.

    I would be interested to know why the same batch could have different shelf lifes, can you share a real life example?

    Please check what is the batch level in OMCT transaction and revert back.

    Thanks all for your replies. yes i have check the system and Batch Level is defined on Material Level.

    Jurgen actually this question is not related to expiry exactly. just for

    good understanding of question i put question like this.

    in classification tab we have one parameter "Release Status" which have value

    X or Y. X means release and Y means Not release.

    We are using this parameter for Auto batch determination purpose. if value is Y then this

    batch will not come in auto batch determination.

    same thing happend to this parameter. when we change value of this parameter in classification in one plant it is refelecting on all plants. which i dont want.

    i hope you get my point.
