Hi

Are there any analysis tools within SAP that will show the Raw materials age at the time of receipt to better manage them ?? . We are currently entering the ''manufacturer's date'' as the ''production date'' during Goods receipt.

Pls throw some light on this.

Thanks

Hi,

Use Batch Management to manage stock by Age.

if you want manage stock by age, then you have to use batch management (or WM with seperate bins per goods receipt)

If you dont seperate the stock information then you can just guess how old the stock is, based on the assumption that your warehouse guys really execute FIFO picking.

If you want to know the age of a raw material, then you have to ask your supplier, and enter this date as production date while doing MIGO.

Hi Jugren

Thank you for speedy response.

My Client has already configured the Batch management. But not for all raw materials.

How to make Batch mgmt mandatory for all Raw materials.

And then how to know the age of Raw materials after making Batch mgmt active. Any special transactions to know the age of Raw materials??

Thanks

There is no transaction that lists the age of a material. but using batch managment with shelf life management allows you to monitor the shelf life experiation.

Here SAP has transsaction MB5M.
