Thear experts I have to manage in SAP the following process and I´m not  sure how to approach it, I'm kindly asking  your for help.

The scenario is as follow:

Several storage locations. The material is a gas bottle. Because of the dangerous contents, the bottle must have a serial number and all the movements between storage locations must be traced.

The gas is used to fill out or maintain a big container. Some time the bottles used remain with certain quantity of gas. This quantity must be managed.

Some times the remaining gas from several bottles is transfered to one single bottle.

The question is how to  implement this scenario? can I do it using only MM or maybe it should be done using WM.

Thank you in advance,

Did you check the feasibility of "Empties Management" concept in SAP. Please check the help doc:

I think you can manage it by this concept. Please check and revert back.

Thank you AKPT for replying, unfortunately this is not exatly the case, I'm looking foward to check the quantities of gas remaining in the bottle at any moment without loosing the track of the bottle's serial number.

In my case also, the empty bottle will be handle as a waste with Waste Management from EH&S.
