Batch management is a new module in the R/3 System in Release 3.0 and is a cross-application development in Logistics. It is linked to Logistics applications, where it can be used irrespective of the industry sector or branch of industry. In the R/3 System, it is therefore structured under the identification code "LO", standing for "Logistics General". Its use does not restrict existing functionality in any way.

Batch Management incorporates the entire logistics process, from procurement to sales. The new functionality works with all existing batch records. It is closely linked with classification, but can also be used without classification. You can only search for batches via the batch determination function if the batches are classified.

A production lot can be manufactured in several production runs. The same technical requirements apply to the entire production lot. The result of each production run is a batch. Example:

In the chemical industry, you would use the term “production lot” if a material is manufactured in several charges in a reactor according to the same process order. The result of each charge is a batch.

The definition of the term batch also influences the definition of the term material. The following structure is recommended:

All criteria making a batch reproducible are criteria of the batch material, and not of the batch itself. The batch record should contain only data that is unique to precisely this batch. This specification identifies the batch as a non-reproducible unit. The advantage of organizing master data in this way is that it enables you to plan the different models of a product individually. In the SAP R/3 System, materials are planned at material level and not at batch level.

Set the batch management requirement indicator in the material master record.

Create the batch master record manually or when posting a goods movement.

The batch can have any alphanumeric number.

This number can be assigned either externally or internally.

In the SAP R/3 System, batch master records always depend on material master records. We post batches FOR a material. You must first create a material master record, stipulating in it that the material is to be handled in batches. This means that you have to enter a batch number every time there is a goods movement. The indicator for batch requirement is contained in the following views of the material master record: Sales and distribution, General plant data, Purchasing, Work scheduling, Storage 1, and Warehouse management. Even if the indicator appears in several views, it is the same indicator. If it is set in one of the views, it is displayed as being set in all the other views. If a material changes from a material that is not subject to batch requirement to one that is subject to batch requirement, you have to post out all the stocks from the previous fiscal year, the current period, and the previous period. You can then set the indicator for batch requirement and post the stock back into the system in batches. The same applies when you cancel the batch requirement. In this case you also have to reorganize the batch master records. You can then reset the indicator for batch requirement to blank and post the stock back into the system. You can create a batch master record directly when maintaining master data. Alternatively, you can specify the batch number upon the first goods movement for a batch. The system then creates the batch master record in the background. Batch numbers can be assigned internally or externally. You can define alternative number ranges.

Customer function calls make it easier to customize the SAP R/3 System. This function module is delivered empty and can be filled by customers with their own programs without having to modify the source code. There are user exits for internal and external batch number assignment. Once you have run the following function modules for batch number assignment, the system will assign batch numbers automatically without any further action on your part. EXIT_SAPLV01Z_001. You can use this exit to define your own number range object and/or interval. You can create dependencies for particular variables (for example, for a plant or material). The batch numbers can be numerical only. EXIT_SAPLV01Z_002. You can use this exit to change the number the system determines, or you can use it to determine a number of your own, containing variables or templates. These numbers can be alphanumeric. You can use the following function modules to control the manual entry of batch numbers:

EXIT_SAPLV01Z_003. You can use this exit to replace the proposed number range object BATCH_CLT and/or external interval 02 with a number range object and/or external interval of your own.You can create dependencies for particular variables (for example, for a plant or material). EXIT_SAPLV01Z_004. You can use this exit to define your own checking rules without being restricted to a number range. If , for example, users assign batch numbers according to a particular template, this exit ensures that the structure for batch number assignment is maintained.

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.

You can select the area of validity of batches in Customizing. You have three batch levels to choose from. In the standard SAP R/3 System, the default setting is the plant level. You can switch to a higher level at any time. Switching back to a lower (more specific) level is so far allowed only from client level to material level. You cannot go back to material/plant level. This is due to the organization of the batch data which has to be converted whenever you switch batch level. Batch status management is also affected by this change and has to be subsequently maintained.

If a batch number has hitherto been unique in a plant but is now only to be unique for a material, this change will have to be accompanied by a change in the batch numbers. Hitherto, the same batch number could be assigned for a material number in each plant. The batches did not have to be identical since they were entirely independent of each other. In the example, we assume that they have completely different specifications. Now you have to check whether identical batch numbers exist for the material in both plants. If this is the case, you will have to prepare a reorganization. An auxiliary program is automatically offered in Customizing as soon as a change in the batch level has taken place. It determines all batches that occur in several plants. It also allows you to carry out a test run and provides you with a log. This analysis must precede actual batch reorganization. Only after a successful data update can batch management be used at the new level. The batch number is unique for each material at the new batch level. A further distinction according to plant is no longer made.

You can use the classification system in conjunction with batch management. The classification system and batch management are closely linked. The specification for a batch master record is based on a batch's classification. The attributes (that is, the specifications) are stored as characteristic values. For batch management to function correctly, you must prepare the classification data to include the corresponding batch specifications. You have to classify batches in order to use the batch determination function.

The characteristics for materials managed in batches provide information for any kind of evaluations on particular attributes of batches, whether in connection with quality issues, production issues, or complaints.

All classes used for batch classification are assigned to class type 022/023. They are required for batch determination. The material and its batches must be classified via the same class. This ensures that the same characteristics are used for the material and the batch. Characteristics can pass on their values by inheritance.

If a batch inherits characteristics, the characteristic value of the batch can be no higher than the inherited value range. In the example shown, batch X1 inherits the requirements for its characteristic value from material

X.

The characteristic value of batch X1 cannot have a value interval greater than that of material X. A more limited interval will also be accepted if it is a partial quantity of the interval of material X. A discreet value must be within the predefined interval. Classification allows lists of numerical or alphanumerical values, not just numeric value intervals.

Since the characteristics are the same for the material and its batches, the characteristic values can be passed on from the material to its batches by inheritance. Characteristic inheritance acts like a check mechanism. If ranges of values or fixed values are defined for a characteristic of a class, they can be regarded as the sole values allowed for all objects assigned to this class. This requires an indicator to be either set or not set in the characteristic master record. It allows or disallows “additional values” that are not within the limits of the sets of values.

Since the specifications of a material and its batches are stored as classification data, you must prepare the classification system accordingly. First, you define the attributes that the material and its batches are to have. You create them in the classification system as characteristics. Now, you create the classes that you want to use for the material and its batches. You can create a selection of different classes for this purpose. You can subsequently assign only one class to the material and to the batch. You are not therefore preparing multiple classification. The assignment you make must be to class type 022 or 023 since they have been provided in the standard SAP R/3 System specially for batches. The class type applicable depends on the batch level chosen. If you have specified plant level as the area of validity in Customizing, class type 022 is defined in the standard SAP R/3 System. The class type is otherwise 023. The system specifies the correct class type automatically. In the final step, the characteristics are assigned to batches. The value intervals can be further restricted in the process.

You create both the material master record and the batch master record in Materials Management. To use the entire functionality offered by batch management, you must first classify the material. You assign the batch class in the “Classification” view of the material master record. You can restrict all sets of values specified for batch characteristics. If you create a batch for the material, the material's classification data is copied automatically. The sets of values specified for the characteristics are proposed as default values. The system checks whether the characteristic values entered are within the limits allowed if the characteristics have been defined accordingly. The “Additional values allowed” indicator must not be set in this case.

The standard R/3 System already contains certain characteristics. They are shown here as “standard characteristics”. They are characteristics that have a key position for batch selection. You should therefore include them both in the respective batch classes and in the selection classes in batch determination if the respective business application is used. This improves selection run performance. You should always use the characteristic 'deletion flag'. The standard characteristics listed are reference characteristics. A reference characteristic is linked to a data field via table MCHA/MCH1. The content of this data field is stored directly in the classification system as a characteristic value. The information is updated redundantly; that is, it is not only referenced. If the content of the data field changes, the change is also made in the characteristic value. In addition, 'free' standard characteristics are offered in the system. Though a 'free characteristic' is defined independently of existing data fields, it is also supplied with the standard R/3 System. One example is the characteristic 'remaining shelf life'. As of 4.0, you can use Customer Function Calls to automatically adopt the master data from a source batch when you create a batch. You can also copy and change the characteristic valuations of free characteristics in this way.
