Introduction :  inspiration for this blog  derived from thread  http://scn.sap.com/thread/3414474 . I assume all basic settings for batch management and batch determination for components are in place. Without waiting, enjoy the short ride with me.

Process steps:

  1. Create batch class T-CODE CL01

Adding  Characteristics LOBM_VFDAT

SAVE

2.MAINTAIN IN MATERIAL MASTER--CLASSIFICATION VIEW

3.SORT SEQUENCE T-CODE : CU70

4.CREATE STRATEGY CLASS To be used in Batch Determination process.

5. T-CODE : CU65

Enter and click on        Button 

Make sure to mark  LOBM_RLZ and LOBM_LFDAT as input parameters as shown above.

Follow Menu path->Goto ->Basic data here select status 1 as Released.

Save

6.DEFINE DEPENDANCY T-CODE : CU01 Enter LOBM_UBD as shown below.

ENTER

CLICK ON 

And paste below code

            FUNCTION LOBM_UBD

(LOBM_LFDAT = $SELF.LOBM_LFDAT,

LOBM_RLZ = $SELF.LOBM_RLZ,

LOBM_VFDAT = $SELF.LOBM_VFDAT)

IF LOBM_LFDAT SPECIFIED


Save

7.DEFINING BATCH SEARCH STRATEGY T-CODE : COB1

7.a  SELECTION CRITERIA :Choose required strategy, I have chosen CO02.Assign class ZCLASS_002 here. Make an entry for expiration date check. I mentioned  > 50 days here .

7.b SORT RULE

7.c DETAILS SHOULD BE LIKE THIS

8.For demo created three batches as below

CREATE ORDER AND DO BATCH DETERMINATION IN COMPONENET OVERVIEW  Correct one:

        Images are not actually missing in non-Firefox browser.

        What you see as blank box are extra blank boxes, in addition to images added by you.

        For example, between point 2 and point 3 of this blog, you see 1 image in Firefox, whereas 1 image + 1 blank box in IE.

        While editing the blog, switch to html mode, and see the code.

        You need to remove tags <img ….> which does not specify src (source) image path.

        <img src=”something.png”> is fine.

        <img > is faulty.

        In above html example related to code between point 2 and point 3 of blog, first <img tag is fine, whereas second <img tag is bogus.

          I actually think that Firefox may not display this empty spaces (I dont have a proof), but the user wanted to show more screen shots and SCN did not allow it, because

          you can insert a maximum of 20 images with a total file size of 1 MB into SCN content.”

            Firefox displays empty images. I checked using a small html file.

            The image tag in jive postings have class=”jiveImage”, and the platform might be hiding empty spaces using CSS, which is working only on Firefox.

        Hello Joy,

        In my configuration there are two unit of measures, Base UOM and alternate UOM, In the field you had mentioned is shown for alternate UOM and one more filed used to appear just beside Charcteristics sort field i.e. also split qty but is Base UOM.

        I got it earlier, but now not getting.

        Just check and revert.

          Hello Neelima,

          When you do Batch determination than alt Uom will come into available qty field and base Uom will come into Requirement qty.But i have doubt that field adjacent to char field?

                    Could you please share screen from working system.

          Regards,

    Hi Dee,

    Very short and clear document.

    But One thing , why the characteristic column are blank (last screen shot), as you have maintained it in the

    Class CL01 Zclass_001, the SLED date should appear in those (characteristic)filed????

    Regards,

    Chandan
