Hi, All,

We have this case:

same raw material ,can be produced in local, also purchase from abroad.

if this raw material is produced in local, then generate the batch 1, and this batch only can used for Customer A sales order.

if this raw material is purchase from abroad, then generate the batch 2, and this batch only can be used for Customer B sales order.

then how to do in SAP?

Please help !

Each production usually creates a new batch, like each receipt from an external supplier creates automatically a new individual batch.

Posting always to the same batch does not really make much sense in my understanding of batch management.

For what purpose do you need to do it always as described? From a quality point of view only individual batches per receipt make sense, same from a cost point as both batches would always have the same price if you do not use split valuation, and if you use split valuation then you actually do not need batch management if you only want this differentiation between external and internal. The valuation type automatically becomes the batch and it would be much clearer visible to anyone.

To assign a batch automatic to a sales order is not possible, except you do an own development. However the automatic assignment could be done in a delivery with a batch search procedure.

Hi Joanna,

maybe like this.

when you create sales order, just input customer A and then input material rm with batch 1.

and do it as same for customer B like above..
