    Hi Abhay,

    Here is the Procedure of the same.

    While creating Material choose the View of PLANT

    DATA /STOR 2 .

    There is SERIAL NO PROFILE tab in that view.

    Choose profile 0003 - Inventory Management (As this is

    commonly used one).

    GR

    While doing GR using MIGO ..for this PO ,a seperate TAB

    as SERIAL NUMBER

    Click "Create serial number automatically" if you want to generate the serial numbers automatically in continous with the previos serial Numbers of that particular material(Exactly as per your requirement)

    Suppose if you want to enter the serial number manually means you can enter in that fields.

    Check out if user exit IQSM0007 Serial numbers will be useful.

    Hi,

    Yes it is possible to assign serial number at the time of GR.

    Pls find the details for Serial Number Assignment while GR as below :

    Assigning Serial Numbers at Goods Receipt

    Use

    When carrying out the final backflush, a specific serial number is assigned to materials which require a serial number.

    You can only assign serial numbers to assemblies, not to the individual components of an assembly.

    Prerequisites :

    1.You must have defined that the material requires a serial number by selecting the serial number profile in the material master record (sales view).

    In Customizing for Sales and Distribution, you must define how the serial number is to be assigned in the serial number profile for the serialization procedure PPSF (Serial Numbers in Repetitive Manufacturing):

    Automatic

    Mandatory entry

    Optional entry

    Features

    When backflushing a material that is to be assigned a serial number, the following functions are carried out depending on the settings in Customizing:

    *Assigning serial numbers automatically :

    In this setting, the serial number is automatically assigned by the system in the final backflush using the settings in the serial number profile.

    Serial numbers as a mandatory entry :

    With this setting, when saving the final backflush, the system displays the dialog box entitled Maintain Serial Numbers where you have to enter a serial number. The goods receipt cannot be posted if you do not enter a serial number.

    Here, you can enter a serial number manually or you can instruct the system to search for the next free serial number and assign it to the material. In this case, choose Create serial no. automatically.

    Serial numbers as an optional entry :

    With this setting, when saving the final backflush, the system displays the dialog box entitled Maintain Serial Numbers where you can enter a serial number.

    Here, you can enter a serial number manually or you can instruct the system to search for the next free serial number and assign it to the material. In this case, choose Create serial no. automatically.

    Activities :

    Displaying serial number per material document

    The serial numbers are recorded in the material documents. You can check the serial number assignment in the backflush document log.

    In the SAP menu, choose Logistics ® Production ® Repetitive manufacturing ® Evaluations ® Display backflush documents.

    Enter the selection criteria and choose Execute.

    The system displays a list of the backflushing logs.

    Double-click the required document number.

    The system accesses the overview display of the document.

    Access the detailed display by choosing Details fm.item and then entering the appropriate item number.

    The system accesses the details display.

    In the detailed display, choose, Goto ® Serial number.

    The system displays the dialog box, Display Serial Number.

    Displaying and changing serial numbers:

    Starting from the main Repetitive Manufacturing menu, you can display, or change a certain serial number. In the SAP menu, choose Logistics ® Production ® Repetitive manufacturing ® Master data ® Serial numbers ® Display or Change.

    Creating, displaying, and changing serial numbers collectively :

    Starting from the main Repetitive Manufacturing menu, you can create, display or change serial numbers collectively. To do this, choose Logistics ® Production ® Repetitive manufacturing ® Master data ® Serial numbers ® List editing ® Create or change or display.

    Hope this helps.

    Revert if any doubt and reward if useful.

    Regards,

    Tejas
