What is a batch no. of a materail? and where can we mention batch no for material? Can we maintain batch no in mm01 Tcode while creating material?
In simple terms SAP Batch Handling means an additional keys fields for users to identify the same materials.
For e.g. Normal Control : Plant + Material + Storage Location
The structure of the material master record allows you to manage stocks of a material by value at plant level or company-code level and by quantity down to storage-location level. Under certain conditions, you may need to make further subdivisions for a material and manage batches.
Certain materials' features cannot always be guaranteed to be exactly alike in production. For example, you cannot guarantee that a certain color will always have the same shade. Minor differences between production lots cannot be avoided. You need to be able to uniquely identify the individual production lots of the same material and manage them separately in inventory.
Materials that require such precise identification, for example pharmaceutical products, are identified and managed in stock not only according to material number, but also according to batch number.
With batch handling, you can manage not only production lots from in-house production, but also production lots from vendors as separate entities.
It is possible to supplement standard batch management with batch status management.
What Is a Material Handled in Batches?
Whether the material is managed in batches:
Level of Batch Number Assignment
You can define number assignment for batches at various levels:
- Uniquely at client level for a material
In the standard R/3 System, numbers are assigned to the individual materials at plant level.
For every batch, there are two types of data:
- General data on the batch (for example, shelf life expiry date, date
of the last goods receipt), which is defined in the master batch.
The master batch applies to all storage locations in which the batch is
located. No stocks are managed at this level.
For example, if the batch C1 of a material is spread across two different storage locations, the stock quantity is tracked for each storage location.
