Hello SAP Gurus,
We had some products which we set up without batch management but now for audit purpose we need to add vendor lot, date of manufacture, and Best by date while doing MIGO.
We have asked to activate batch management for these products but their quote is super expensive so we can't some easy solution. May be we can use customize field or misuse existing fields. My question to you guys - Is there any way to just show vendor batch field? Also, if you guys suggest any fields where we can add three info about batch and dates.
Thanks in advance.
You can use some of the Text fields in the MIGO Item details "where"-Tab , like " Unloading Point" " Goods recepient" or "Item Text" field. This data is stored in MSEG table.
One of my earlier clients had inserted a new Tab to capture additional data at the MIGO Item detail level, they used the BADI MB_MIGO_BADI.
Some more info on this BADI and implementation :
There is nothing that could be used as a replacement for batch management . A batch is the smallest part of the stock of one material in one location, you could have 50 different batches of the same material. so you would need 50*3 fields.
Activation of batch management is easy compared to de-activation, just get the stock in previous period and current period to zero, activate batch management and get the stock back in.
if you do not need this info for your daily operations, then I would say keep it Excel for your one-time event with the auditors and ask them why auditors need a batch if it is not needed to run business.
