batch experation date managment in hours

Hello QM consultants,

maybe someone can advise based on his experience, regarding managing Expiration date in batch record in Hours and not Dates (standard)

target 1 is control (block/prevent) consumption to Process order.

target 2 is holding the batch between Process orders

    I answered this already in 2012 and 2014 with these words:

    I dont think that you can use hours.

    for this you would need to enter the manufacturing date/Shelf life expiration date as well with hours, but the fields are just taking dates. the data type is DATS with a length of 8, there is no space for hours.

    A field that can hold hours would have data type TIMS

    You may have to contact SAP to ask if hours are possible, I doubt.

    the period indicators are stored in table PRDKZ

    the field period indicator is IPRKZ and the values ' ' , 1, 2 , 3 are fixed values entered to the domain DATTP, hence no chance for hours

    thanks for your reply,

    I am considering development option as well, although one of the topics that found was "holding period" in batch characteristics

    maybe be someone did that in the past for MFG needs
