Assigning Batch search strategy to material-batch key

I am facing one strange problem. I am creating process order in COR1 for my finished goods FIN1. I have maintained BOM for FIN1 & assigned Semi finished goods SEM1, SEM2 as a BOM component.

I have maintained enough stock of SEM1in batches. Now i am releasing my process order. For component SEM1, the system is automatically assigning the batch number

I have noticed in my process order, for component SEM1 has 2 items, the batch key is as "2" (sytem automatically sets this value) but also has ths same component item, the batch key is as "1", required quantity is 0

Why? What is the importance of this "Batch Key"?

Please guide me

This is riot as per standard SAP when you split the batch system will split as first line time with 0 requirement quantity and second with actual requirement quantity of the material and stock available in Batch.

Also note if you change the order header quantity. When you do this, the requirement quantity of the successor is also reduced to as per the entire requirement.

Hope clear to you.
