Batch Derivation Scenario

196 Views

Dear PP Experts,

We have been using batch derivation functionality for transfer of Mfgr. Date and Expiry Date of Semi Finish to Finish Product. Now we have a new scenario which is as below:

Assume SFG has Mfgr. Date 22.06.2012 and shelf life in material master as 24 months, accordingly Expiry Date is 21.06.2014.

By batch derivation these values are transferred correctly to FG. However, there are 2 different scenarios for the FG wherein I require your expert help. The same SFG is used to produce different FG's.

Scenario 1: If shelf life maintained in material master of FG is 30 months then when process order of FG is released the Mfgr.and Expiry Dt.are updated in batch classification by batch derivation, but when I do GR of FG the SLED is changed from 21.06.2014 to 21.12.2014 according to the shelf life maintained in material master. In this case since I am using an input SFG of 24 months, my Expiry Dt. of FG should remain the same i.e. 21.06.2014.

Scenario 2: If shelf life maintained in material master of FG is 18 months then when process order of FG is released the Mfgr. and Expiry Dt. are updated in batch classification by batch derivation, but when I do the GR of FG the SLED is changed from 21.06.2012 to 21.12.2011 according to the shelf life mainted in material master. In this case since the shelf life of FG is 18 months, my Expiry Dt. of FG should be 21.12.2011.

In short my requirement is that the Expiry Dt. should remain the one whichever is minimum. I cannot change the material master shelf life.

Pl. let me know how can I acchieve both the scenatios.

Thanks in advance.

Prashant
