Minimum Shelf Life check in outbound delivery

Hi All,

Problem: Min Shelf life check not happening in outbound delivery

Scenario: I have a batch managed material where total shelf life and min shelf life data is maintained. Batch Management is active at material level. Movement type 601 has SLED check active "1".

I created a delivery from the sales order and picked a batch which will expire after 5 days. Min remaining shelf life required is 20 days. I can do the PGI and no message is issued.

VL451 Message I have configured as E.

Note 1111547 - Remaining shelf life in delivery falls short - no error msg

As per the above SAP note min shelf life check should work with outbound delivery also. My understanding may be wrong please let me know your thoughts.

Let me know if you have seen min shelf life check in outbound delivery.

    I haven't seen it, but I didn' t search for it either. We let SAP check dynamically. if we deliver to our customers then we need to make sure that the batch does not expire on its way. towards Australia this may need a remaining shelf life of 50 days, while within Europe 10 days would be sufficient. Hence I cannot just use this static remaining shelf life date from material master.

    OSS Note 33396 - Batch determ.: Selection w. remaining life LOBM_RLZ

    explains how to setup the dynamic check.
