    hi ganesh

    Whenever dealer is purchasing / Selling parts, pricing is based on lot number.The same part vary in price based upon lot numbers. Also there should be a provision to select lot number in sales and service orders issues

    For example: same material with different lot number and pricing

    Lot1: Matx- Rs.100

    Lot2 Matx- Rs.125

      Hi Raghavendra,

      Batch management is not recommended because for each material for each quantity you have to enter the batch number in all the material movement transactions which is very hard and time consuming. For e.g. suppose you have received 100 oil filters then for each quantity you have to enter the batch number. Also consider of stock valuation and moving average price.,Creating po, GR etc

      Now coming to your issue, may I know the reason why two lots have different prices is this because same part is received form two countries hence the cost is different ?

      Their can be very simple solution like creating custom VOFM pricing formula. but in this case Moving Average Prices will not be segregated, hence COS will not be proper in order do accurate contribution margin accounting in profitability analysis .

      I would recommend to create split valuation . In simple terms it means managing a material as several partial stocks. Each partial stock is valuated separately. This will be much easier to use solution . for this you have do split valuation configuration and maintain material master accordingly .

      Valuation type is standard field for condition table so you can easily maintain pricing separately for each for e..g lot size. This field BWTAR i.e valuation type is also available in DBM Item level i.e. /DBM/VBAP-BWTAR,

      For this ask SAP to add this to your item details screen in DBM order or copy the parts screen and just add this field , no need to do the coding. Just replace this screen number and program in layout configuration in /DBM/IMG

      I recommend to read about batch vs split differences, and then make the required choice, personally I will never recommend batch as it is very difficult to use

      Regards

      Ganesh
