Automatic Batch determination at time of Goods receipt for production order

Hi SAP experts,

Greetings to you all. I wish to ask a query that how batch is determined automatically at the time of goods receipt for production order .

I have done the following settings:

1.Specified batch level at material level

2.External batch number assignment

3.Defined production order condition table '501' (plant/material)

4.Defined production order access sequence (order type-plant -material)

5.Defined Production Order Strategy type.

6.Defined Batch search procedure in Production Order.

7.Assigned Batch search procedure to Production order type for a particular plant , batch check not activated.

Please let me know of any more settings to be checked for the same.

For example, a production order is being confirmed for a quatity of 5 nos . at a time . However, the GI movement (261 movement type) for the production order components is taking place for 1 EA qty. from 5 different batches.

So now, how the system will define the GR (movement type 101) for the production order header material for the qty. 5 nos. EA ?

It is desired that the system should do GR for the qty. 1 EA of the header material for the 5 different batches (batches which were automatically deteremined for the Goods issue of the components).

Thanks in advance. good day.

Best regards,

    Since you are using external batch number , you have to assign batch number to production order header material in the production order assignement tab only.

    GR will happen in confirmation against the same batch number.

    you can not have multiple batches for header material as per compoenent batches against same production order. Each production order will have unique batch at header level.
