 Batch Determination Locate this document in the navigation structure


If a production order contains components that are managed in batches, you can manually trigger the batch determination process for these components.

Batch determination selects all batches, that comply with selection criteria specified in Customizing and which have stock available on the requirements date of the component.


To be able to use the batch determination function, the following requirements must be met:

  • The component must be kept in stock

  • The component must be marked as being managed in batches in the material master

  • A search strategy (search procedure) for batch management must be maintained in Customizing as an order type-dependent parameter

You can find more information on the selection criteria in the Implementation Guide (IMG).
