Multiple EAN/UPC for a single product


We are facing the following requirement from one of our vendors.

We currently maintain a single EAN/UPC for each of our articles (Retail environment), whether it's an individual or a variant. This is of course updated to EWM via CIF.

Now we need to maintain several EAN/UPC for each article, for the same UoM (piece). Thus, in ECC transaction MM42 we updated the "Additional data> Additional EANs" view, which in turn updates table MEAN.

We are updating the customizing for CIF and table MEAN is available as a parameter for function module CIF_PRODUCT_SEND.

Our questions are:

- Where in EWM are the entries equivalent to ECC's MEAN table? (in which transaction, view, table?)

- Will the additional EANs be valid for scanning barcode instead of the product number? We know EAN is valid for 1 to 1 relationship, but we are not sure for the 1:n scenario.

Any guidance on this situation will be most welcomed. In the meantime we are doing some research on our own, and will share the information on this forum.

Best regards.
