This process document explains how to create, reclassify, trace and display a lot in the lot master table (MILOMA).
An item with a lot number is created or an item with a serial number is created. The lot is also reclassified, traced and displayed.
This process is used to control items in the material flow by setting unique identities such as lot numbers or serial numbers.
A lot master for the item must exist in order to be able to perform laboratory inspection (LI).
An item with a lot number is stored in the MILOMA table.
The conditions in Lot/Serial Number Settings must be fulfilled.
Open 'Lot/Serial Number. Connect to Item' (MMS235). This is the program for creating a lot number. The lot number can be created either automatically or manually. This depends on the value in the 'Lot number method' field on the E panel in 'Item. Open' (MMS001/E).
A lot/serial number is reclassified in 'Balance Identity. Reclassify' (MMS130). Option 38 from (MMS235) starts this program. This program allows to:
Lots are traced in 'Lot. Trace' (MMS140). The purpose of this is to trace an item through the entire material flow. For example, tracing can be used when a complaint is made or when an inventory variance occurs. Option 27 from (MMS235) starts this program.
Labels are printed in 'Label. Print' (LIS601). Option 26 from (MMS235) starts this program.
'Balance Identity. Display' (MMS060) can be used to view the different lots that belong to one item. Select sorting order 9. Lots can also be displayed in 'Lot/Serial Number. Open/Connect to Item' (MMS235).
