Batch Cost


How can we get the batch cost in SAP B1.


Former Member


Batch costing is not available in Business One. This is the system definition.

May be following information can be helpful :

The costprices (eg FIFO) are taken from the OINM table. The OINM table and the table of the batches are not related in this way. Only the Itemcode has implication on what costprice (FIFO) will be used when making a Delivery and what value will be posted to COGS.

When creating the batches you are only relating it to the itemcode, not to a specific FIFO layer in the OINM table.

To make it clear, when the system is deciding the cost price it looks at what Itemcode has been selected in the document row, it then looks at the OINM table for the next open layer for this item, the batch selected has no implication on this.

The only way around it would be to have separate Item numbers for each batch. We understand that this is not ideal for your business scenario but it would be the correct way of working the system to achieve the postings wanted.

Hope it is of some help.
