    This happens via automatic batch determination.

    A lot of times, the users are releived of the process of choosing the correct batch. So based on a strategy (eg FIFO, shelf life expiration date etc), the system proposes a batch at the time of delivery creation.

    Eg in food industry, biscuit cartons of different batches are available, and the company has a policy which says that the batches must be dispatched in the order of their manufacturing date. This way the user doesnt make a mistake of picking a wrong batch.

    I am not getting into the technicalities of batch determination.

      Hello Aroop

      Thank you vey much for your help full answer.

      Hi friends/ aroop/ experts

      How this batch number from delivery will be tranfered to other modules? and what is the purpose to other modules?

      Why I am aksing this is batch determination will trigger from different modules. SO only one batch determination and one batch number from SD module will be use full -?

      OR

      Different baatch numbers will be created from different modules -? How this works -?

      Thanks

    For materials managed in batches, you can enter individual batch numbers in the following documents:

    Pre-sales documents (such as inquiries or quotations)

    Sales orders

    Delivery

    If you enter a batch number directly into the sales document, the system checks whether its availability and expiration dates are valid. When you copy a pre-sales document to a sales order, any existing batch numbers are also automatically copied but cannot be changed in the sales order. If you create a sales order with materials to be managed in batches that does not have a preceding document, you can change the batch numbers until subsequent documents, such as the delivery, have also been created.

    Maintaining Master Data for Batches

    If a material is managed in batches, you indicate this fact in the material master record in either the Purchasing or Plant data/storage 1 views. You can also create and maintain master data for individual batches, specifying such information as the expiration date, valuation type, and the country of origin. If you are planning to use batch split at delivery time, you must also maintain the relevant customer master records for those customers who permit batches to be split.

    When copying a sales order with batch numbers to a delivery, all batch data is automatically copied. The batch numbers which are copied to the delivery cannot be changed again here.

    Regards
