Depending on the plant, material and operational levels we can choose the level at which you want the batch number to be unique. The material number is unique at the client level. However, the uniqueness of the batch number can be defined at the following levels -

In combination with the material and plant

In combination with a material number

At the client level

If the Batch level is set to Plant/Material in your system, the following applies:

The batch number can be reassigned for a material with a different specification in each plant.

However, you can transfer a stock from one plant to another between batches with the same number, even though the batches do not necessarily have the same specification. In such cases, the batch quantity transferred assumes the specification of the destination batch.

If you want the batch specification to be unique across all plants, you can only achieve this through organizational measures. The system does not support this. In this case, you are recommended to switch to a higher batch level.

If the Batch level is set to Material in your system, the following applies:

A batch has the same specification for all plants at which a material is stored.

The same batch number can be reassigned with a different specification for each material.

If the Batch level is set to Client in the system:

The same batch number can only be assigned once within the entire client.

It is uniquely assigned to one material number.
