Duplicate codes for same Material


I am from pharma industry we face issues when a product undergoes change in source /Form/Function.

Eg : Product A was earlier outsourced now it is Inhouse formulation under such scenarios the product code has to be changed.

For a certain period Sales keeps happening in old code till stocks are liquidated and meanwhile at certain locations sales in new codes gets started

Is there any settings in material master to link old and new codes and any SAP standard report which provides Sales/ Stock report based on latest codes.

We currently track this manually

    yes you can maintain your old material number or name in the new one. this can be done while creating a new material code. in the basic data 1 screen there is the field where you can maintain the old material code.

    for the inhouse and external procurement is concerned you can do it by material type and its procurement control. this can be done and seen in MRP2 view. there you can mention the inhouse or external or both ways of procurement.
