Auto populate Manufacturing date in MIGO


We produce a finished product X in Plant P1. It is managed in batch and is having SLED defined in Material master.

While doing confirmation, user enters Production date and batch B1 for product X. Now, this product is transferred to our different plant P2 by way of stock transfer order. The batch(B1) is mentioned in STO, Now, when product is received through MIGO at different plant P2, user wants "Date of manufacturing" field defaulted as the one entered for product X plant P1 and Batch B1 automatically as soon as he enters PO number while doing goods receipt.

Is there any customization which will carry Production date for plant P2 ?

If not, how can I achieve this ?

Pl. reply soon.

    If your batch level is plant level, then a batch 1 for material 1 in plant 1 is technically something completely different to batch 1 for material 1 in plant 2.

    They have just the same batch number, but since it is plant level, the batch is unique to the plant and has nothing to do with the same batch number in another plant.

    And this is the root cause that you cannot get the values from the other plant defaulted into your receipt.

    With material or client level you actually would share the same information and would not need to re-enter it.

    You may need to transfer these values yourself using an exit.

    Date of manufacture and SLED is defined automatically in the following case:

    Step 1: create STO for material X batch B1 from plant P1 to plant P2 (batch data exists for the combination material X batch B1 in plant P1, but does not exist in plant P2)

    Step 2: create outbound delivery with reference to STO

    Step 3: post goods issue with reference to the delivery

    Step 4: post goods receipt with reference to the outbound delivery

    Result: If you check the data of material X batch B1 in plant P2 the date of manufacture and SLED data is copied from the data of plant P1.

    For further details about batch settings you can check customizing path: SPRO / Logistics general / Batch management

    Best regards,
