Classify stock based on vendor in MTS strategy

Dear Experts,

Hi

We are using MTS strategy in R/3 version and we only use serial number for some important materials.

Now we have a new requirement to trace back all materials stock to their vendor.

I know we can use serial number or batch management for this purpose, but because of some limitations we cannot use these solutions.

Do you have any other suggestion to cover this requirement?

    Please read my blog

    How old is my stock / from which vendor is my stock

    it explains why it is not possible without batch management

    Dear Jürgen,

    Many thanks for your help, informative as always.

    So there is no other way than batch management to categorize material stock based on vendor :(

    I know there is countless discussions in SCN about batch management requirements, but we have problem with return sales orders.

    In our return sales orders for some items which have been processed completely, we cannot activate batch management for the material.

    Do you have any idea what is the reason?

    Below you can see the doc flow for one of them:

    Hi,

    Again I have the same problem with activating batch management indicator.

    For a standard order (33) an item (24280) is shown as an open item when I wanna activate batch indicator, but this item is processed completely as you can see in below.

    Do you have any idea what is the reason?
