SAP WM with Shelf Life not working

SAP WM with Shelf Life not working


I have read most of topics on SCN on SLED with WM but its not working for us.

In our process we do not maintain the SLED information on the material master but we are planning to maintain the SLED/BBD on the batch manually via MSC2N.

The SLED has been activated and the picking strategies has been set to "H" via Tcode OMKW.

The batch status check in Warehouse Management is set to "WM0001" for movement type 319 and the batch search strategy has been set via LS51 for the warehouse but picking strategies is picking materials that has already expired.

Any idea? Thanks in advance for your time.

    Hi Tommy,

    Before I reply to your email, I am making following assumptions:

    1) You have a setup in the system that moves Batches into Restricted status upon Expiry.

    2) You only want to select earliest expiry batches excluding batches that are expired (Basically restricted).

    3) Batch is not getting determined in OBD, Process Order, Sales Order etc but you want Batch to be determined within Warehouse Management when TO is created.

    My experience with Batch Determination in WM is that it is usually triggered after Picking Strategy (via Storage Type Search) has already picked up the quant. One way to perform Batch Determination in WM before WM Picking Strategy is by using "Stock Determination" setup. Within the Stock Determination Strategy definition you can assign "WM Processing" = 3.

    By, setting up this way you can perform Stock Determination which internally calls Batch Determination based on your batch search strategy selects the Batch and then searches the batch in your warehouse based on your Storage Type search strategies.

    The other ways you can handle this situations is:

    1) To Move the Expired Batches to "Blocked" stock instead of keeping them in Restricted stock.

    2) Perform Batch Determination in the OBD, Process Order or Sales Order documents before the TO is created based on your requirements.

    Hope this helps.
