What is mean by Batch Determination in the Production Orders?

Business scenario

Configuration data to be maintained for Batch Determination

Define the Condition Table

Automatic Batch Determination in the Production Order

What is mean by Batch Determination in the Production Orders?

Batch Determination is the Process, by which system is able to assign/propose the suitable Batches for the Batch managed components in the Production Order, which meets desired Selection Criteria/business requirement

Business scenario

In the Production of the Finished Material (Ex: FG-BATCH), using one of the Batch managed component (Ex: RM2-BTACH), System should pick up only those Batches, for which Country of Origin is maintained as US (USA), & also if there are more than one Batch, those selected Batches should be sorted by the Ascending Order of their Self Life Expiration Date, during the Batch Determination Process manually.

Configuration data for Batch Determination

Create the Condition Table(T Code : OPLD)

SPRO>> Logistic General >> Batch Management >> Batch Determination & Check>>Condition tables>> Define Production Order Condition Tables

Define Access Sequence

Create the Search Strategy
In the Search Strategy, assign the Access Sequence defined above & if required, the Selection Class & Sort sequence

Create the Search Procedure (T Code: OPLG)
Search Procedure in linked with the Strategy Type(s), defined in the above step

Assign Search Procedure in Order Type Dependent parameters ( T Code: OPL8)

****   ****  *****

Create PP Master Data

Create all the necessary PP Master Data. Ref. the below Master data used in this scenario

Finished Material: FG2-BATCH
Component Material: RM2-BATCH
BOM: 00000287
Work Center: MACHINE1
Routing: 50000055
Production Version: V001
With the Organizational Data      >>>       Plant: 1010 & Storage Locations: 101A & 101B
Create the material Master for the Header Material as well as for all the components required to produce the Header Material using the Transaction Code: MM01

Note: For all the Batch managed component Materials, you need to make sure

  1. Classification view is maintained with the Class Type: 023
  2. Class is assigned
  3. Characteristics are maintained &
  4. Batch Management is activated (For Header Material, its Optional)

Material Master of the Header Material # FG2-BATCH

Material Master of the Component Material # RM2-BATCH

Create the BOM, for the Header Material # FG2-BATCH, using the T Code: CS01.
With one Component # RM2-BATCH, which is Batch managed material (As Example)

Create the Work Center using the T Code: CR01


Create the Routing for the Header Material using the T Code: CA01


Create the Production Version for the Header Material(Ex: FG2-BATCH) T Code: MM02/C223

Create Batch Determination Master Data

Create the Batch Search Strategy using the T Code: COB1

Search Strategy contains the Selection Criteria & Sort Rule to be followed

Selection Class can be created using the T Code: BMC1/CL02

Please keep it in mind, at least one of the Characteristics of this Selection Class should be the same with the Classification of Characteristics in the Material Master & also maintain the Value for at least one or more characteristics in the Selection Class (As shown below)

Sort Rule can be created using the T Code: CU70

Transaction data

Create the Production Order using the T Code: CO01

Production Order: 1003102, Created >>> As of now, no batch number is assigned for the Header Material & also for the component
Once, the Order is Release, System will assign the Batch Number for the Header Material (As per Production Order Scheduling Profile settings maintained)

Release the Production Order using the T Code: CO02

Batch Determination of the Components using T Code: CO02

Select the Line Item, for which Batch Determination to be done & & Click on Batch Determination Icon

Then in the Next Screen, System will pull up all the Batches which meets the Selection Criteria.
Also, selected batches are sorted as per the Sort Rule maintained

Confirmation of Prod. Order using the T Code: CO15/CO11N

Goods Receipt of Production Order using the T Code: MIGO

Stock updated in the respective Storage location

Automatics Batch Determination

For this functionality of automatic Batch Determination of the Component Materials in the Production Order, need to maintain for the Batch Managed Component(s), in the Material Master, in MRP 2 View, with the Batch Entry Option =3. Rest of the above settings remains the same.

With this setting, System assigns the Batch Number automatically, for the Component Material, during the Release of the Production Order

Kindly advice for any further improvements/changes, which makes it, as the most useful document

Many Thanks & Regards: Raja Sekhara  Reddy Bannuru.
