Batch Management Requirement

Dear Experts,

We are going for Batch management in our rollout project.

Scenario we wil be as follows:

1] SFG material need to be handled by Batch

2] FG material need to be handled by Batch

3] We want the Batch output of SFG to FG

Ex: let say we have manufactured SFG as ABCD123, this need to be processed again become FG at this time also we want batch as ABCD123.

How this can be achived & which is better either internal OR external.

Please suggest

Thanks

DN

    This concept is not supported in standard.

    If you go for external range you can manually do it (e.g. assign the same batch number) in the production order of FG.

    Nevertheless, even if you have different numbers for batch of SFG and FG, SAP will provide a full batch genealogy based on stock movements in the production order, meaning that I know what batch of SFG was used to produce a batch of FG.

    You can do this without a user exit if you simply assign the batch numbers manually - i.e. do not have the system assign batch numbers.

    You can create the FG batch before creating the production order - and assign the FG on the production order before releasing/confirming production.

    You cant do this if the batch level is "client".

    Hi Don,

    First things first both the SFG and the FG need to have the Batch Management indicator activated in the material master. Secondly in SPRO you can choose to activate Internal batch number assignment or leave it at default inactive status. Thirdly maintain the BOM for FG and SFG. When you are manufacturing or procuring the SFG you have the freedon of mentioning the Batch number in the goods receipt tab of the production order or in the batch tab of the MIGO transaction.

    Once the SFG is in stock you can create a similar batch for the FG at the time of production and this is because both these materials are different and can be produced or procured or sold independently. So the batch becomes material specific.

    I hope the solution was helpful

    Thanks and Regards

    Hi,

    For this you can use Batch Derivation functionality which can be used to transfer batch of component part (SFG) to produced part (FG). Please check follwng link and read carefuly.
