First of all define a suitable serial no. profile for your materials. Path is SPRO> Plant Maintenance and Customer Service >Master Data in Plant Maintenance and Customer Service>Technical Objects>Serial Number Management>Define Serial Number Profiles. Here you can define following: 1. whether serial No. should already exist in the system when a GR is made or to be generated at the time of GR only. 2. Whether you want to generate a equipment No. to be generated synchronously. What should be the serial no. category e. g. Machines, Production resources/tools, Test/measurement equipment, Customer equipment etc.

3. Whether system should do stock validation while using the serial number. 4. Define where you want serial number to be assigned mandatory and where to be kept optional by assigning the procedure to your profile.

After defining the profile please assign it to the required materials in work scheduling or plant data or sales view of material master. Now when you will create an order for this material and will make a GR, system will ask for serial numbers.

Please revert back if you have any further doubts.
