Retail - EAN codes - Purchase 3 articles - sell 1 article to Stores

Hi out there

Could any body guide me in the right direction?


A vendor delivers :

3 articles (all fish, but in different size boxes)

3 different EAN numbers.

The product is sold to the Stores as one article, because the fish is sold pr. kilo

The settings in the system does not allow the same EAN assignment to different articles.

Can the use of additional EAN be used, and if so how???

Hope to be able to solve this without allowing multiple EAN assignment to be able to get the Moving average correct for the product sold to the Stores

Thanks &

B rgds

    You may pick a base unit and maintain EAN for the same. Then define other units in configuration and maintain conversion factors in Article Master basic view. You do not need to maintain EANs for these other units. You can procure and receive the items in any of these units.

      Hi Randi,

      I am involved in a Retail implementation for a grocery chain mainly seliing fresh items like fruits, veges, meat and fish.

      I do not have much exp here as most of my past projects have been in fashion retail.

      Can you give me some pointers on.

      1. Artcile Master data setup - Integration of PLU codes ? Have youy used international PLU codes ? Any issues you have faced.

      2. UoM - Scenaios like, buying in kg and selling in each or vice versa.

      3. Any general help on issues faced in fresh items.
