    is this an academic question?

    I do not expect that SAP restricts you from setting a batch management flag, precondition that you have a view where you can set this indicator.

    my PIPEline materials dont have such a view, I only have basic data, accounting and costing views.

    We do not create purchase orders for pipeline material, so we dont need purchasing view, it is obvious that there is no storage view, and planning is not needed as PIPEline material is always available when you open the pipe.

    you will never see any stock for pipeline material. so even you set batch managment active, it is useless, as you never receive pipeline material into your warehouse and hence you never get a a batch created.

    Except you create a bach yourself in MSC1N.

    I expect (but do not know as I cannot test this intresting case) that SAP will ask you to enter a batch when you consume the material.

    A batch is usually needed to distinguish the stock of the same material within a storage location, but as you do not store pipeline material, I cannot imagine for what reason someone would like to have batch managment for PIPEline materials

    • Hi,

      Thank`s for your clarifiction. Was very helpfull.

      I`ve just tried to use PIPE material, cause in my scenario:

      1. I receive certain material from supplier directy into my production line.

      2. This material is a pet bottle (e.g). and are sent by through a pipe (compressed air).

      3. I would like to batch manage this raw material.

      4. With this, I could keep traceability.

      Eg. When I confirm my production order, I know which raw material batches belongs to Finisehd goods.

      Dou you think this solution is feasible?
