How to selectively CIF batches from ERP to EWM?

Hi All,

I have an batch managed product for which multiple batches exist. At present stock of this product is available in WM only for a few batches. (Our customer manages the stock of products manufactured on each day as one batch, therefore we have some old batches for which stock is not available in the warehouse as on date).

We are now moving from WM to EWM & we want to CIF the ERP batches to EWM. The requirement is that we only want to CIF batches for which stocks exist. The challenge is that when you create an integration model by selecting the 'Batch' option, system CIFs all batches for a product. We tried selecting the 'Storage location stocks' option under material dependent objects along with the 'Batch' option. But even in this case, all batches are getting ciffed.

Does anyone know how to overcome this. Would be glad if any of you could give some inputs.

Thanks in advance for the help!

    this is not doable in the standard. And I would not recommend to build something for it. Because otherwise you have to do changes (most probably manually) everytime you have another batch. Why not have all batches in EWM? No harm.

    • Hi,

      how should the system know which batches to CIF, if the stock can be only created once the batch is cifed? 😭 So I guess you are running into something which can only be maintained manually. And the CIF itself has no filter for that (as you already found out), so you would need to enhance the CIF..
