SCM595 Batch Management

Pré-visualização

the shelf life expiration date check is active for the movement type. You can enter the production date 

or shelf life expiration date at goods receipt without the system checking or calculating it. No message 
appears. 

? In Customizing for Inventory Management, you can activate a message (M7 667) if at goods issue, or 
stock transfer, batches have already expired (expiration date < today's date). If an error message appears, 
you can prevent the entry of expired batches in goods issue documents. However, there may be 
transactions such as goods issue into scrap, for which you must permit the entry of expired batches. You 
can then exclude movement types from a check by entering the value 3 (no check at goods issue) in the 
Check SLED field in Customizing for Batch Management. 

? The user exit EXIT_SAPLMHD1_001 in SAP enhancement SAPLMHD1 is used to calculate and check 
the shelf life expiration date (SLED). You can use this user exit to modify the data for calculating and 
checking the SLED.

Deadline monitoring program

 
 
 

? With the batch deadline monitoring program you can check whether the shelf life expiration date or the 
expiration date for a batch lies in a particular time frame. The system can automatically check the date 
using a program that runs periodically.  

? When the batch expiration date is reached or passed, the batch is blocked. This results in a change in the 
batch status to Restricted, or a transfer posting of the batch quantity to the blocked stock if batch status 
management is not active. In this case, no inspection lot is generated.

Shelf Life Expiration Date Check in Batch Determination

 
 
 

? In batch determination, you can select a batch using its shelf life expiration date. 
? To do this, you must have added the standard characteristic LOBM_RLZ for the remaining shelf life in 

the selection criteria, and the standard characteristics for both the delivery date LOBM_LFDAT and the 
expiration date LOBM_VFDAT. 

? The batch class must contain the expiration date LOBM_VFDAT as the standard characteristic. 
? You enter the required remaining shelf life in the strategy record. Depending on the business transaction, 

this can be the required batch specification for production (availability date) or the requirements of the 
customer (delivery date) who is to be supplied. 

? For example, the material should be available for production on the availability date, or have reached the 
customer by the required delivery date. The shelf life expiration date check in batch determination can be 
used in production as well as Sales and Distribution, in order to ensure that no expired batches of input 
components are used in production and also that no expired batches are delivered to customers. 

? The system uses these two characteristic values to calculate a minimum required shelf life expiration 
date for the batch you are looking for, providing the standard characteristic LOBM_LFDAT has been 
maintained accordingly.

Minimum Shelf Life Tab: Evaluate SLED Status

 
 
 

? To be able to select your batches according to the SLED status, enter a value for the remaining shelf life 
on the Minimum Shelf Life tab page in the Batch Information Cockpit. 

? You can choose one of four statuses using the SLED evaluation: 
? Batches outside the remaining shelf life period. These batches have a valid expiration date. 
? Batches within the remaining shelf life period. These are batches that have not yet expired and have 

not exceeded the remaining shelf life. 

? Batches that have exceeded their expiration date. 
? Batches for which no expiration date is stored in the batch master record. 

? You can also select whether and how the remaining shelf life is displayed in your selection results.

Selection Result of the SLED Report

 
 
 

? The system displays the SLED status in the batch selection results and in the stock overview using a 
traffic light symbol. 

? Green traffic light: Batches outside the remaining shelf life period. These batches have a valid 
expiration date 

? Yellow traffic light: Batches within the remaining shelf life period. These are batches that have not yet 
expired and are within the remaining shelf life period. 

? Red traffic light: Batches that have exceeded their expiration date. 
? No traffic light: Batches for which no expiration date is stored in the batch master record.

 Exercises 

 

Unit: Functions of Batch Management 
Topic: Restricted status and its consequences 

 

At the conclusion this exercise, you will be able to: 

• Change an unrestricted batch to a restricted batch 
• Outline the difference between the stock type Restricted and 

other stock types 

 

You want to see the effect of the change in batch status. The stock 
type Restricted is different to other stock types. You want to learn 
how to use this stock type in combination with quality inspection 
stock.
