I have already defined stock determination grp & rule and it is working smoothly but.....

While issuing material to production agst prdn order thru MIGO tcode, I will be getting batches in LIFO basis, it should be on FIFO basis. ( First In First Out)

How to configure the above setting, please suggest the way, waiting for your reply

Thanks in advance

    First create characteristic in CT04 for Batch Creation Date, under "Addnl data", enter Table Name MCH1 or MCHA (As per Batch Class 022 or 023) and Field ERSDA and save it.

    Assign this characteristics in CL02 in your Batch Class.

    CU70 - Create a Sort Rule and specify the Characteristic of Batch Creation Date and activate "Ascending" indicator.

    Now assign the Sort Rule in MBC1 and keep Selection criteria as "O" for the Strategy type.

    Now do batch determination in MIGO.

    • Hi,

      Go to MSC2N and here under "Classification" check whether Batch Creation Date has been updated automatically by system or not? If not then check the characteristics you have created has which Table MCH1 or MCHA

    stock determination is one thing, but you work with batches and want issue the batch FIFO, so you have to setup batch determination as well.

    Please try of this below:

    Step - 1 Create Characteristics

    ZLASTGRDATE - Date of last goods receipt

    Transaction code CT04

    Step - 2 Create Characteristics

    ZBATCH - Batch Number

    Transaction code CT04

    Step - 3 Create a class MRO_BATCH_FIFO_CLS

    Transaction code CL02

    Step - 4 Add Characteristics ZLASTGRDATE and ZBATCH

    Step - 5 Create a Condition Record Batch search Strategy

    Step - 6 Select Plant and Material Key combination - Enter the Material code

    - Select selection Criteria save and come back

    - Select Sort rule as Ascending and Enter the validity rule

    Step - 7 Assign this class to the material in Classification view

    Step - 8 Post a Goods Issue for the material, and when you enter batchnumber enter * and press enter.

    Then you will observe how system propses the quantities based on the batches and GR dates in FIFO order.

    Well these are the steps noted but try these in quality. Once results satisfied then proceed in production.
