WMS documentation

 

Introduction

This document describes the scanner settings for E-WMS Stock Transactions, in menu System, E-WMS, Scanners, Stock Transactions settings.

 

Description

Once scanner settings are defined, these need to be assigned to each device in menu System, E-WMS, Scanners, Scanners. You can use one general settings profile for all devices, or you can set up specific profiles per individual device. Please also read document General notes on scanner settings.

After selecting menu System, E-WMS, Scanners, Stock Transactions settings you can create a new profile by pressing New, or edit an existing profile by using Open. You can only delete profiles which are not linked to devices.

You can jump directly to a specific section:

 


Section: Submenu

    These settings are available from product update 408. You can enable both or disable one of the Stock Transactions submenus on the scanner. If more than one submenu is enabled, these submenus will first show on the scanner after selecting main menu 'Transactions, Stock transactions'. When only one of these submenus is enabled, this submenu will be immediately started when choosing main menu 'Transactions, Stock transactions'.

When both submenus are disabled, you will see error message 'Please select at least one of the options in section 'submenu''.


Section: General

Show stock button (in previous releases this setting was named 'RF: browse stock')
ASP only. Determines whether the hand terminal user is allowed to view item stock on the hand terminal. For Stock Transactions receipts and Inventory (because in these processes the item is scanned after the location has been scanned) , this setting also determines what items are visible when pressing the browse button when an item has to be scanned or entered. When disabled, the user will see all items (master data). When enabled, the user will only see items currently on stock on the scanned location.

Auto. SKU label screen
ASP only. When using SKU Management, determines if the SKU label screen appears automatically (when you have not printed labels for this item for this order yet). When disabled, you will always have to press the SKU label button manually - this may be more convenient when you are receiving SKU items both as SKUs and as sales units.

Use external SKU nrs
ASP only, available from 405 and applies to E-WMS SKU Management. You can read more about external SKU numbers in this document.
When enabled, you can scan external SKU numbers without having to generate SKU numbers and print labels from the hand terminal
When disabled (default), you will have to generate SKU numbers and print labels from the hand terminal.

S/B number generation
ASP only, available from 406. Determines whether the button to generate and print new serial/batch numbers is visible.

Autoreceive
ASP only, available from 406. Enables or disables the button 'Autoreceive' when scanning stock transaction receipts on the hand terminal.
Autoreceive provides the possibility to automatically generate serial-, batch-  or SKU numbers and generate receipt lines for these. You can find more information in this document.

Focus to

ASP only. After scanning one item, it can be more efficient to return to either the 'location' field or to the 'item code' field (on the same location).

  • Item code: after you finished scanning an item, the input returns to 'item code', on the same location as before.
  • Location: after you finished scanning an item, the input returns to 'location'.

When scanning serial/batch items, the focus always first returns to input of the 'S/B number' after completing a scan. When pressing the STOP button on input of the S/B number, then this setting is applied.

Screen layout
ASP and WMSclient only. Please read this section for more information on 'screen layout'.

Default SKU scan mode
This setting is available per release 409 and applies to SKU Management and free scanning process only. Determines the default value of the 'SKU scan toggle', which defines whether a SKU is by default issued as a whole, or only part of a SKU is issued (entry of quantity). 

  • SKU: no input of quantity after scanning a SKU number (unless scanner setting 'Focus to next field' is enabled, then all fields are to be confirmed)
  • Units: input of quantity is always required

This document provides more information on the SKU scan unit toggle.

 


Section: Bar code

 

Scanning combination
ASP and CAB. Please read this document for more details on 'scanning combination' and 'dividing character'.

Dividing character
ASP and CAB. Please read this document for more details on 'scanning combination' and 'dividing character'.

Use EAN128
ASP and CAB. When enabled, EAN128 decoding will be started for any scanned value. Disable this setting when you do not use EAN128 bar codes.
Please also read: how to activate EAN128 barcode scanning in WMS ASP and in WMS CAB.

Focus to next field
ASP only. Please read this document for more information on this setting. This setting is available in this screen from release 409, in earlier releases this was a general scanner setting.

Show barcode summary
Available from product update 404 (ASP and for WMS client only). When enabled, a summary screen will show (in which you have to press Enter or OK) after a scan, when otherwise you would have moved to the next transaction screen immediately.  This way you still have a confirmation of what you scanned, before the next scan screen is shown. Typically, this will be the case when you have disabled the setting 'Focus to next field' and scanning a SKU number, or an EAN128 or HIBC bar code.
Please also see this document for more information on this setting.


Section: Analytical

This section was re-arranged in release 412. In earlier releases, settings 'reference' to 'G/L account' had separate section headers.

 Ref.: Default value
You can enter a default reference for stock transactions. By creating different settings profiles for different scanners, you can apply unique references per hand terminal. This reference is visible on the item card.

Ref.: Display which value?
Refers to 'Default reference'. This setting determines if and how the reference field will be prefilled on the hand terminal;

  • Default value: the reference is prefilled with the 'default reference', and can still be changed on the hand terminal
  • Never: the reference is prefilled with the 'default reference' and input of reference is skipped (automatically applied)
  • Empty: the reference is empty and can be entered on the hand terminal, or be left empty

If you are not using a reference, then clear the 'default reference' and set 'display which value' to 'never'.


Project: Default value

In this setting, you can enter a specific project code to be used for all stock transactions. This will only be applied when usage of stock transaction codes is disabled.
If the usage of Transaction Codes is enabled, then input of a project code is always skipped since a project code can be linked to the E-WMS transaction code.

Project: Display which value
You can hide input of a project code, and apply a default value. If you want to skip input of a project code, then set 'default value' to empty and this setting to 'Never'.

  • Default value: prefills the 'default value' and you are still able to change and scan the location on the scanner. The warehouse employee can browse in the available project codes.
  • Never: prefills the 'default value', the value cannot be changed on the scanner. When the 'default value' is empty, a project code is never entered on the scanner.
  • Empty: a project code can be entered on the scanner, there is no default value. The warehouse employee can browse in the available project codes.

G/L: Default value
You can enter a specific G/L account to be used for all stock transactions. This will only be applied when usage of stock transaction codes is disabled.
With this setting, you can assign a specific general ledger account to be used as cost account for all scanned stock transactions
If the usage of Transaction Codes is enabled, then input of a G/L account is always skipped, since a G/L account can be linked to the E-WMS transaction code.
If a specific cost account is not specified, the default cost account of the scanned item will be used. 

G/L: Display which value
You can specify to hide input of a G/L account, or use a default value. If you want to skip input of a G/L account and just use the item's default cost account, then set 'default value' to empty and this setting to 'Never'.

  • Default value: prefills the 'default value' and you are still able to change and scan the location on the scanner. The warehouse employee can browse in the available G/L accounts.
  • Never: prefills the 'default value', the value cannot be changed on the scanner. When the 'default value' is empty, a G/L account is never entered on the scanner.
  • Empty: a G/L account can be entered on the scanner, there is no default value. The warehouse employee can browse in the available G/L accounts.

 


Section: warehouse

Default value
You can configure a default warehouse for stock transactions. If you only scan in one warehouse, fill this warehouse code here and set 'Display which value' to 'Never'.

Display which value?
This setting determines if and how the 'warehouse' field on the scanner will be prefilled. The setting offers following choices:

  • Default value: prefills 'warehouse' with the value configured in setting 'Default value', and allows to change this on the scanner
  • Never: prefills 'warehouse' with the value configured in setting 'Default value', and also skips input; so changing the warehouse is not possible
  • Empty: never prefills a value, the warehouse code always has to be scanned or entered

Section: Location

 

Default value
You can define a default location for scanning stock transactions.

Display which value?
Determines how to prefill the 'location' field, with following options:

  • Default value:  prefills the 'default value' and you are still able to change and scan the location on the hand terminal .
  • Never: prefills the 'default value' and also skips input of the location on the hand terminal. You always use the same location.
  • Empty: the location field on the hand terminal is always empty and has to be scanned.

Section: Item

Default value
You can predefine a default item code for scanning stock transactions.

Display which value?
Determines how to prefill the 'item' scan field, with following options:

  • Default value:  prefills the 'default value' and you are still able to change and scan the item code on the hand terminal
  • Never: prefills the 'default value' and also skips input of the item code on the scanner.
  • Empty: the location field on the hand terminal is always empty and has to be scanned

Section: Quantity

Default quantity
Prefills the quantity field on the hand terminal with this value, unless the quantity is retrieved from a scan like an EAN128 bar code.

Minimum quantity
This setting determines the minimum quantity allowed to enter on the hand terminal. This setting is intended to avoid errors on the hand terminal, like scanning an item code in the quantity field.

Maximum quantity
This setting determines the maximum quantity allowed to enter on the hand terminal.

 


Section: date registration

 Please read this document for more information on serial/batch date registration.


Section: Lot number
In this section you can enable the lot number functionality for this WMS process. The lot number functionality can be enabled for serial and/or batch items for the following WMS processes:

  • Receipt registration
  • Stock inventory
  • Stock transactions
  • Production Receipts

and is supported for the following actions:

  • Receiving a serial or batch item with a lot number.
  • Performing a stock transaction with a serial or batch item and a lot number.
  • Auto-receiving a serial or batch item with a lot number.
  • Receiving a serial or batch item with a lot number using GS-128.
  • Performing a count for a serial or batch item with a lot number.
  • Performing a production receipt for a serial or batch item with a lot number.
  • Receiving a serial or batch item with a lot number with scanner settings disabled.
  • Printing serial or batch numbers with a serial or batch item with a lot number.
  • Auto-receiving a serial or batch item with a lot number with SKU.

Lot number for batch items
Enable this option if you want to use the lot number functionality for batch items for the stock transactions process.

Lot number for serial items
Enable this option if you want to use the lot number functionality for serial items for the stock transactions process.

 

Section: Active sync

 These settings only apply when using the outdated E-WMS CAB client, with cradled or USB communication. In this scenario it may not always be possible or desired to have item master data available on the hand terminal.

Serial/batch
This setting determines how to handle input of the serial/batch number in general. When validation of item codes was disabled and there is no item master data on the hand terminal, it can not be determined if an item is a serial/batch item or not. Using this setting, you can still configure whether you want to enter a serial/batch number, using following choices:
  • Normal (default value): serial/batch number entry is disabled (you never scan serial/batch items)
  • Serial: assumes you are always scan serial number items (entry of serial number per single unit, but can be left empty)
  • Batch: assumes you are always scan batch items (entry of batch number, but can be left empty)
Validate item code
This setting determines if you want to validate a scanned item code (or scan code) during the scan, or only after reading back. When disabled: any item code (not: scan codes) can be scanned during scanning (existing or not), this also means you do not have to export item master data to the hand terminals. After reading back, the item code is still validated (but then scan codes are not converted to item codes). When enabled: the scanned item code or scan code is validated on the hand terminal, using the master data previously exported to the hand terminal (menu WMS, Send, Send item data).

Browse items
This setting determines if the warehouse employee is able to browse in item master data, thus able to select an item from the list, instead of scanning an item code.

Enter quantity
When disabled, input of quantity is skipped, and the quantity configured in 'Default quantity' is applied automatically.
