Force picking of items all belonging to same batch.

I have the following problem in Warehouse (managed by EWM).

In ECC we have an order placed for 50 Each (the material is defined with 50 Each per 1 carton). The requirements is to provide all Each belonging to same Batch regardless which one is choosen, therefore the user do not specify a specific batch.

At Warehouse level, EWM, we manage Cartoons allowing the delivery of singles Each inside; this means that we have at stock cartons only partially full (we refer to those as ‘broken carton’, I don’t know if this is a standard SAP definition).

Assume that I have the following scenario;carton 1 contains only 30 Each belonging to Batch ‘xxx’, and carton 2 with 20 Ea belonging to Batch ‘zzz’.To satisfy the OBD generated from the order, EWM will pick up the 30 in cartoon 1 and 20 in carton 2 even if those belong to different batch because the user did not choose specific batch.

Any idea how we could force the picking of all Each belonging to same batch? Maj be some set up in material master?

Thx.

    Hi Eugenio,

    "At Warehouse level, EWM, we manage Cartoons allowing the delivery of singles Each inside; this means that we have at stock cartons only partially full (we refer to those as ‘broken carton’, I don’t know if this is a standard SAP definition)."

    -> Yes, This is SAP Standard. Please check the link.

    Strategy: Partial Quantities First

    https://help.sap.com/viewer/3d97bec9bf1649099384bb8167df3cf2/9.5.0.1/en-US/4fc0104a76ac209de10000000a42189d.html

    I guess currently your Stock Removal Rule for Quantity is ascending so System is picking partial first as per the link set up.

    Could you please make change of Stock Removal Rule to descending Quantity so system would sort the quantity with full carton with single batch first in stead of partial as per your requirement.

    Please let us know if you have further questions.

    Kind Regards,

    Ajit
