In case of any complaint or recall issue from the customer, then we need to track what are all the materials used to manufacture the lot and trace the same.

In Batch management, we can track the raw material used for production through batch by using MB56 (Batch where used list) or In BMBC (BATCH cockpit); where as in serial number, there is no provision to track like batch management.

For serial number managed material we need to create additionally AS Built Configurations to track the serial number.
