At the end of the course You willa. Understand the purpose Batch Managementb. Understand different terminologies in Batch managementc. Batch Management in different modulesd. Traceability with Batche. Summary
Batch Management Product produced according to the Recipe and in one homogenous mixture which can not be reproduced It is mainly used in Food product manufacturing Chemical manufacturing Process Industries.
Example of BatchBatch will have its own unique value of ingredientsE.G A Dairy product with Batch Number 1512200601 may have its ingredients as belowFat 10%Cholesterol 2%Vitamin A 10%In the above example Fat, Cholesterol and Vitamin A becomes characteristicsValues of the above characteristics may be unique to this batch
Terminologies in Batch Management Batch characteristics It is the property of the batch which has to be attached to the batch.Example:- Fat content is the required property of a dairy product which has to be displayed with the batch. Fat content becomes the batch characteristic.
Terminologies in Batch Management Batch class Class is the carrier of characteristics. Class will be attached with the material master.Example:- Dairy_Product Class can contain characteristic Fat content. Dairy_Product class will be attached to all dairy product material code numbers in classification view of material master.
Terminologies in Batch Management Production Date:- Date when the product was produced. Expiry Date:- Date beyond when the product can no longer be used Shelf life period:- It is the duration of any product when product can be used. Recurring inspection:- Inspecting the product at periodic interval to check its shelf life.
Terminologies in Batch Management Batch Status:- Condition of the Batch usability will be known from the batch status. Restricted Stock status of a batch indicates it can not be used. Unrestricted stock status of a batch indicates it can be used for consumption.
Terminologies in Batch Management Batch Search Strategy:- While issuing the goods for process order or production order, batch number of components can be searched through Batch search strategy. Batch Number can be searched based on any characteristic value
Terminologies in Batch Management Condition Technique – (Condition Table):- System searches the batch through predefine tables in a sequence which are known as condition table and Access sequence. Condition table specifies the fields combination to be searched. Condition table is defined in the configuration. Condition record contains the value to which the batch is to be searched. Condition record is a Master Data.
Terminologies in Batch Management Condition Technique – (Access Sequence):- System searches the batch through predefine tables in a sequence which are known as condition table and Access sequence. Accessing sequence to the defined condition tables is defined in Access sequence.
Batch Management in MM Materials Master (Purchase view) must have a Batch Management active to the materials which are to be handled in Batches. Batch classification containing characteristics will be assigned with the material master in Classification view. Shelf life details are maintained in Storage1 view with shelf life period.
Batch Management in PP Materials Master (Work Scheduling view) must have a Batch Management active to the materials which are to be handled in Batches. Batch creation during process order / production order processing is to be mentioned in Material Master Work Scheduling view. Batch number to the components can be searched through batch search. Batch number to the finished products are assigned.
Batch Management in SD Batch number can be searched during Delivery. Batch number for any specific product can be searched through batch search strategy during delivery. Customer returned products with batch can be traced quickly.
Batch Traceability Batch number will help to trace its entire activity in the system. Batch number can fetch Date of Production Date of Expiry date Ingredients of a product in that batch Production or Process Order number Customer returned products with batch can be traced quickly. Batch number can help in identifying the vendor by maintaining proper batch numbering. Prior information about product expiry date of a product can be obtained through reports.
Shelf Life Expiration Date Shelf Life details are capture in the system. Production Date or Expiry has to be mentioned in the GR for the system to calculate Shelf life automatically. Storage view of the material master must have Shelf Life Expiration Details to perform the above. Standard report will provide the list of product with available expiry date.
