Function documentationBatch Selection and Follow-Up Actions in the Batch Information Cockpit


You can use this function in the Batch Information Cockpit (BIC) to find out which batches have been delivered to which customers and how the raw material batches are connected to the finished product batches. You can also tailor the selection in the BIC to meet your customer-specific requirements by defining user group-specific selections for which you use fields from the delivery header, delivery item, and customer master data. You can then choose a follow-up action to display information for the related handling unit.


This function is integrated in the Batch Information Cockpit on the Delivery tab. User group SAP 4 serves as an example. For more information, see Batch Information Cockpit.
