Dear Gurus,

Is there any configuration in WM where if the shelf life of the product is expired, it does not propose the product during picking process.

One way is to activate the user exit config at storage type level and perform some coding not to propose these products during picking process.

Please let me know if there is any option to achieve this functionality through standard configuration way.

Thanks,

Srikanth

What do you mean with "propose" F4 or "batch determination" . If Batch determination, which one do you use? Do you determine the batches in the delivery, or do you run batch determination in WM only?

Jurgen - No Auto batch determination in Delivery or WM. SAP will propose the batch that is nearing the SLED date during the picking process.

so my question is - Can we stop this by providing a hard error (currently system only gives warning message).

Your picking strategy is probably stringent FIFO which causes that the oldest batch is proposed.

If you had posted the warning message number then it would be easy to check whether there is a way to get it as error.

In general you should actively do something if you have expired batches. Maybe they have to be re-checked, maybe they can't be sold at all after the SLED is expired. So you would need to move them into Quality or blocked stock status with QA07.

There are OSS notes for these message

2259237 - Transfer order confirmation for materials with expired SLED does not lead to error VL450

1292323 - Check for the expiration date is incorrect

519717 - Message VL203 is issued in SD document as a warning message

This is a totally new situation and question and has less to do with the original question

I also think you would need to rephrase this sentence as I see not much sense in it: "system should not be able to pick any batch for a material that has shelf life expiry date of 30 days during transfer order creation."

Maybe you wanted to say "...which has 30 or less days remaining shelf life"

We are doing this in the delivery batch determination to make sure that the goods do not expire while they are on the ship from Hamburg to Sidney.

It has of course some impact, especially if you only have old material. You promised to deliver since the availability check in the sales order does not do a batch determination with such specific rules. So you might promise a delivery and once you start your picking process you realize that you have no stock at all which meets such criteria.

Thanks for your reply. QA07 will not work as all the materials are not set up for quality inspection. I wanted to say 30 or less days remaining shelf life, we have a requirement not to ship out any products from the warehouse that have 30 or less days and for few products we have for 6 months. For this i have activated the Auto Batch at WM Level and maintained the configuration.

I have created a new class & Sort sequence - assigned it in the configuration and maintained this new one in the condition records. My question is does the batch classification in the material master and the class in the condition records should be same? I have tried to enter the same batch class from material master in condition records but system says "multiple classification not allowed".

Hi Srikanth

Did you try this one 394605 - Shelf life expiration date and batches in the warehouse

And it talks about the 'SLED mgmt active' indicator

I think if you can maintain the minimum remaining shelf life in the material master would that not work?

Regards

Vinita

Thanks Vinita - Yes i have looked at the OSS Note. We are maintaining the Minimum shelf life in the material master but it does not work for my requirement.

Thanks for the oss notes however it does not meet my requirement.

My Requirement is system should not be able to pick any batch for a material that has shelf life expiry date of 30 days during transfer order creation. Can this be achieved by activating the Auto Batch Determination at WM Level? if we activate it, is there any negative impact on picking strategies?
