One material with posibility of two batch determination

Dear SAP experts,

I have one question for you. We want to have one HALB material manufactured in one facility, and second one want to purchase same material from external vendor.

I test it, is is possible. However, I´m facing problem with batch number. We have batch numbering different for external and for internal materials.

External batch is let say P1234 (P as purchased), internal batch has numbering C1234 (C as component).

I need to create new batch strategy, which will create batch number based on source of material. So basically in material master there will be I supposed new strategy, for specific component, which will create P or C lot based on source.

Can you please advice?

    For the purchased materials (P), please check the enhancement SAPLV1ZE by which you can make the system to create batches with external interval according to your requirement. In standard there is no option available for auto batch creation based on the source of a material. For clarification, please check the following function,

    Logistics general ---> batch management ---> Creation of new batches ---> define batch creation of goods movements

    • The material master has not much to do with your requirement, it is the batch creation at goods receipt where you have to check if the GR is in reference to a purchase order or a production order and based on that the number has to be assembled in the user exit for batch number creation.

    Hi Zdenek,

    Batch number can be assigned to multiple material. But you need to maintain two batch master record

    for external ( P1234 )as well as internal (C1234 ).

    In Classification: yes it is possible you can maintain it


    For Example:


    Class Z01

    Class - General Description : General Materials

    Value for class general Char value

    Internal C1234

    External P1234

    (Assigning a class and maintaining values for characteristics )

    and save it.

    • Hi,

      In transaction - SNRO

      use the object as - BATCH_CLT

      Define two number range external for the batch numbers.

      Do the config for batch number triggering at the time of GR for both type of material.

      Use exit for external batch number assignment while processing GR.

      Let me know if any clarification is required.

      Hope this will help in your process.
