Hi Prasad,

Before you can manage batches of a material in stock, you must first specify in the material master
record that the material is to be managed in batches for the specified plant. To do this, you must
set the batch management requirement indicator in the material master record (for example, in the
Purchasing view field MARA-XCHPF or Storage Location view field MARC-XCHPF).

Whether the material is managed in batches:

This indicator can be set while creating material.

MM01 -- General Plant data/storage 1 View -- Batch Management (check box)

(Check also Purchasing or Warehouse Mgmt 1 view).

Level of Batch Number Assignment

If a material is subject to management in batches, every quantity of that material must be assigned
to a batch. Each batch of a material is identified by a unique batch number, under which it is
managed. This number is either entered by the user (external number assignment) or assigned
automatically by the system.

You can define number assignment for batches at various levels:

- Uniquely at client level for a material

- Uniquely at material level

- Uniquely at plant level

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.

- Stock data, which is managed separately for every storage location in which the batch is located.

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.

When you enter goods movements for materials handled in batches, you must enter the batch
number in addition to the material number. If you do not know the batch number, you can search
for the batch using the required characteristics
