Enable Batch Management w/o removing Stock

Hi!

We would like to start using the feature of batch number in SAP BO.

Right now all item are set to "Manage Item by None" on the General Tab under Item Master Data. We manage batches in a separate Excel spreadsheet. Not good, I know 😊

Is there a way to enable Batch Management w/o removing the stock?

If not, what would be the best way to solve the problem?

Thanks for your help,

Christian

    Without issuing the stock out it would not be possible to change.

    The best way would be to process a Goods Issue based on Last Evaluated Price and then a Goods Receipt.

    Inventory > Inventory Transactions > Goods Issue and Goods Receipt

    The problem with Goods Issue/Receipt, as far as I can see it, is that it will destroy our FIFO...

      Thats going to be a problem mainly when you do a goods receipt.

      When you issue it might not be a problem but you need to bring them in at the same order they came in originally

      Example 10 x $5

      20 x $5.50

    Yes that is how we are going to do it:

    1. Run an Inventory Audit Report, export it to Excel and divide Cum Value/ Cum Qty

    2. Create a Goods Issue for all Inventory with price calculated in 1.

    3. Set "Manage by" in Item Management to "Batches"

    4. Run Inventory Audit Report see how much was released at what cost in step 2

    5. Create a goods receipt in the same order (and same price)

    as stock was released in step 2

    Unfortunately I don't see a way to do this other than manually!?
