Batch determination for components in MFBF according to FIFO

I have created below settings for batch determination according to FIFO in MFBF for the components. But it does not seem to be woking correctly. Am I missing something?

1. using standard IM search strategy ME001 – Standard Search Procedure.

IMG > Logistics > Batch Management > Batch Determination and Batch Check > Batch Search Procedure Definition > Define Inventory Management Search Procedure

IM Search Procedure

The search procedure consists of three condition types that is plenty to us. We want the determination rule to be activated when we use Movement type 261 in Plant X for only a specific material. ME01 condition seems to fit this purpose.

2.Activated the search procedure for the movement type, otherwise it will not even begin to look for a determination procedure in the first place.

IMG > Logistics > Batch Management > Batch Determination and Batch Check > Batch Search Procedure Activation and Check Activation > Allocate IM Search Procedure/Activate Check

Activate procedure

We added the Search procedure to movement type 261 and checked the check box so that manually entered batch codes are validated as well.

3. Next we created a sort rule to be able to sort batches on SLED.

IMG > Logistics > Batch Management > Batch Determination and Batch Check > Define Sort Rule

Sort rule

For the rule we use standard Batch Characteristic LOBM_VFDAT. This is the SLED. We need earliest batches first so we choose ‘Ascending’.

4. Created a search strategy,

SAP Menu > Logistics > Central Functions > Batch Management > Batch Determination > Batch Search Strategy > For Inventory Management > MBC1 – Create

The batches were assigned classification as well.

Please help.

    Hi,

    Please refer to the following forum for more details.

    https://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/display/PLM/Set+Up+Batch+Determination+in+Production+Planning

    Overall process steps almost the same but you need to refer to repetitive manufacturing configuration steps.

    Hi Harish,

    Check the Batch determination activation against Order type (Product cost collector-RM01) in OPJ2.

    Also check the customization in Logistics - General Batch Management Batch Determination and Batch Check Batch Search Procedure Allocation and Check Activation Assign Search Procedures to Production and Activate Check Assign Search Procedure to Repetitive Manufacturing Profile.

    Revert back if any other support.

    Regards,
