how to transfer batch characteristics from SNC

Hello,

Is there any option to send batch characteristics from SNC to ECC for the finished product while sending ASN? Or any other options in this regard. I know from ECC we can send to SNC but no idea about the other direction i.e SNC to ECC.

Please help

Thanks

Prathib

    Hi Prathib,

    As I understand you want to send Supplier Batch Number while creating ASN.

    We have this functionality available in SNC. When you create ASN, you can put the Batch Number in "Batch No' field available in ASN items row (when you scroll right side). This batch number will be visible as 'Vendor Batch' when you post Inbound delivery.

    You can also make this Batch Number Mandatory in SNC by activating 'ASN_CHECK_BATCH_NUMBER_REQ' validation check.

    Thanks,

    HI Parthib,

    This is a interesting requirement.  Can you elaborate as to what kind of Data it is pertaining to Finished Product.

    Per my understanding, in the DDN XML there no Characteristics fields.  Also,  when the IBD is created in ECC, I have not observed any Characteristics.

    Can you please provide a screen shot of the kind of data you are planning to send.

    Thx

    MJ

      Hi Anindya,

      I ca'nt open this document as its chargeable. I do use work orders. U mentioned MWOI message has characteristics. But will that update the batch? Since the GR is done through ASN, how can I update batch characteristics through MWOI XML.

      Thanks

    Hi Prathib,

    Depends on what characteristics you are looking for, in default there are some that are used typically with batch managed products, such as best before date, manufacturing date, country of origin and such. So these would be in the XML, but may not be mapped to the default IDoc, but are available in SNC.

    Hello,

    As you know I can define the characteristics in SAP for a materia. i wanted to maintain same characteristics in SNC and supplier update it in the work order update process. When I do the GR through ASN sent from SNC I should be able to populate these characteristics automatically so that manual update of the batch characteristics can be avoided.

    From your expert openion I feel there is no standard way to do this. Hope the attachment has some information but I could not see any document in the link provided. Is that something I should subscribe for?

    Thanks for the great help

    Hello Anindya,

    I can't open this document as its chargeable. Do you have this document already downloaded?.

    I do use work orders. U mentioned MWOI message has characteristics. But will that update the batch? Since the GR is done through ASN, how can I update batch characteristics through MWOI XML or in otherwords whats the use of having primary product characteristics in MWOI xml?

    Thanks

    Hi Rahul,

    In addition to sending the vendor batch, we need to send the batch characteristics as well. The requirement is as follows. The vendor captures the properties of the batch produced at vendor location, when they send ASN, vendor can send  vendor batch along with characteristics. When the inbound delivery is processed in ECC, system should create a customer batch and pass all the characteristics to that batch.

    Iam sure this is not possible to achieve it by standard functionalities. I could locate a document but cant open it.

    Thanks

      Hi Pratibha,

      I have similar requirement with small difference. Please go through the requirement and help here if possible

      The requirement is as follows:

      Material batch managed - batches are created while posting GR

      Step-1 : Create PO

      Step-2:  Confirm PO

      Step-3:  Create ASN for line item in PO with splitting he quantity with supplier batches

      I have this functionality in ECC while creating inbound delivery - i am struggling to address this requirement in SNC and replicate in ECC to create the inbound delivery.

      Please help here.
