Batch Management in plant to plant transfer

Hi Gurus

To understand the various scenario with, batch level at material level. I got into some tricky scenario.

A material 10004477 is exist in 1002 and 1005 plant in FG01 store location.

The batches are 31022017 and BMT_123 respectively. I did plant to plant transfer posting using 301 Mov type between two plants.

In this case, checked-

1. Transfer of material with batch from 1005 to 1002 was successful.

2. Transfer of material from batch BMT_123 of plant 1005 into Batch 31032017 of plant 1002 was successful.

As per my understanding batch at material level is unique every where, transfer of material 10004477 from plant 1005 with Batch BMT_123 to plant 1002 into batch 31032017 should not be happen.

Please help on this.

    You are confusing material movement with batch levels.

    Why should it not be possible to move the quantity of batch BMT_123 to batch 31032017? such movement has nothing to do with the customizing of the batch level.

    The batch level is the retention level of the data.

    if your batch level is at material level, then batch BMT_123 in plant 1005 is identical to the same batch number in plant 1002. for example, if the batch has a color as characteristic and this color is black, then it is black everywhere.

    If your batch level is at plant level, then the batch BMT_123 could be black in plant 1005 and green in plant 1002, totally independent batches, just the same number by coincident.
