Shelf Life Data_Non Batch Managed Materials

Dear Team,

I am handling below scenario. Request for your guidance on this.

I have externally procured item "M1" (procurement type F) which is non-batch managed (Batch Indicator is NOT set in material master). But I have provided the "Shelf Life Data" in the "Plant / Storage" view of material master.

In OMJ5 I have set the SLED / BBD check active for my plant & movement type 101.

With the above settings, I have created the purchase order for the item M1 for the quantity 50. Based on the purchase order the vendor has sent me the ASN number with "Actual Manufacturing Date".

Based on the ASN details which is provided by the vendor, I am creating inbound delivery in VL31N.

My question is: If the material is NOT batch managed, Is it possible to enter the "SLED / BBD date" in VL31N? Even though it is possible to enter the "SLED / BBD Date" in VL31N, Will this "SLED / BBD date" considered during GR against my purchase order?

    You can populate your under item level for material tab for VL31N, system should perform SLED check if it has been activated for movement type as well as Plant level in the configuration. Test your data share the screen shot if you have any error.

    Date of Manuf.

    In standard SAP it is not possible to have Self life without batch management.

    Self life it self for the batches. So you need to go for batch management with characteristic as LOBM_VFDAT for self life data

    Best Regards,
