Introduction

This document describes the hand terminal settings for E-WMS Production Receipts, in menu System, E-WMS, Scanners, Production receipt 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, Production receipt 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.

Section: General

Screen layout
ASP and WMSclient only, available from 404. Please read this section for more information on 'screen layout'.

Focus to
ASP only. Determines to what field you will return after a receipt line has been scanned. You have following choices:

  • Item code: returns focus to 'item code'. The receipt transaction is not completed yet. When 'item code' was prefilled and skipped, you will continue to the next field.
    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.
  • Location: returns focus to 'location'. The receipt transaction is not completed yet. When 'location' was prefilled and skipped, you will continue to the next field.
    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.
  • Production order (available from 406): returns focus to 'production order', which means the current transaction is always completed after the scan. The screen will be cleared and you can scan a production order again.

If you scan production receipts per pallet, and you need a pallet label which is printed after reading back and processing the receipt, then focus to 'production order' may be an efficient choice. After each receipt, that receipt line is automatically completed (without having to press STOP on the scanner) and will be read back by the WMS RF service, allowing for automatic processing and label printing.


Prefill item code
ASP only, available from 406. This setting has following options:

  • Empty: the item code is not prefilled when scanning a production receipt.
  • Advice: the item code is prefilled with the planned item code, from the production order receipt line, and can still be changed on the scanner.
  • Advice + skip: the item code is prefilled as with 'advice' and also skipped, which means the item code cannot be changed on the scanner.

S/B number generation
ASP only, available from 404. When this setting is enabled, you can generate new serial/batch numbers and print barcode labels from the hand terminal.  When enabled, the 'S/B' button is available on the scanner. When disabled, the 'S/B' button is not available on the scanner.  For more details, please see document E-WMS - Serial/batch generation.

Prefill: S/B
For E-WMS ASP only, available from 406. This setting allows you to prefill the serial/batch number when receiving serial/batch items, either as generated by E-WMS - Serial/batch generation (from 406), or as planned in the production order (from 407). This setting has following options:

  • Empty: the serial/batch number is not prefilled
  • Advice:
    • when the hand terminal setting 'S/B number generation' is enabled: the serial/batch number is prefilled according to the serial/batch generation number mask, and can be changed by the scanner operator
    • when the hand terminal setting 'S/B number generation' is disabled: the serial/batch number as planned in the pro
  • Advice + skip
    • applies the same logic as 'Advice', only the scanner operator cannot change the prefilled number for batch items
    • for serial items, input of a 'serial number' cannot be skipped, since this field is the last field in the scan flow, and therefore always has to be confirmed.


Auto. SKU label screen
ASP and SKU Management only. This setting determines if the SKU label print screen should appear automatically when no labels have been printed yet for the current order and SKU item. When enabled, the SKU label print screen will appear automatically when labels are still required. When disabled, the label print screen will never show automatically, you will have to press the OPTIONS + SKU button on the hand terminal.

Use external SKU nrs
ASP and SKU Management, available since 405. When enabled, external SKU numbers are accepted, you are not printing SKU labels from the hand terminal. When disabled, you are generating SKU numbers and printing SKU labels from the hand terminal during the receipt.

Show stock button
ASP only. Determines whether the hand terminal user is allowed to view item stock on the hand terminal. Before release 406, this setting was named 'RF: browse stock'.


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. Please disable this setting when you do not use EAN128 bar codes. You can find more information in: how to activate EAN128 barcode scanning in WMS ASP and in document 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: warehouse

Default value
You can configure a default warehouse for production receipts, and use it in combination with the setting 'Display which value'.

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
  • Advice (available since 406): prefills 'warehouse' with the warehouse code as planned in the production order receipt line
  • Advice + skip (available since 406): prefills 'warehouse' with the warehouse code as planned in the production order receipt line, and skips input - the warehouse cannot be changed.

The choices 'Default value', 'Never' and 'Empty' are applied in ASP and CAB, 'Advice' and 'Advice + skip' are only available in ASP.


Section: Location

Default value
You can define a default location for production receipts. Since you could use any warehouse for thee receipts, there is no validation of the entered location in this screen. To apply a default receipt location, the setting 'Location/Display which value' will have to be configured to 'Default value' or to 'Never'.

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

  • Default value:  prefills the 'default value' and you are still able to change and scan the location on the hand terminal (ASP and CAB)
  • Never: prefills the 'default value' and also skips input of the location on the hand terminal. You can only receive on this specific location (ASP and CAB, in CAB the location is also not visible)
  • Empty: the location field on the hand terminal is always empty and has to be scanned (ASP and CAB)
  • Advice: prefills the location with either the location as planned in the production order, or else the main location of the received item. You are still able to change and scan the location on the hand terminal (ASP only, available since 406)
  • Advice + skip: prefills the location with the planned or item default location, and also skips input of the location on the hand terminal (ASP only, available since 406)

Section: Quantity

Default quantity
ASP and CAB. Prefills the quantity field on the hand terminal with this value, when the quantity is not prefilled from a scan like an EAN128 bar code. The default value is 1. Change this value to 0 if you want to avoid just pressing 'Enter' in the receipts process too quickly (and receiving quantity 1).

Display which value
ASP only, available since 406. Allows you to prefill the quantity field on the sc, with following values:

  • Default value: prefills the quantity field with the value configured in setting 'Default quantity'
  • Advice: prefills the quantity field with a default production size per item, as defined in the field 'Standard production qty' in item maintenance, WMS button.

Minimum quantity
ASP and CAB. 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 the item code or an EAN128 bar code in the quantity field.

Maximum quantity
ASP and CAB. This setting determines the maximum quantity allowed to enter on the hand terminal. This setting is intended to avoid errors on the hand terminal.


Section: date registration

These settings determine what serial/batch dates will be registered on the scanners. 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 production receipt process.

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


Section: Scanner - Activesync

These settings are only applied when using the E-WMS CAB client without RF, so when you have to connect to a PC (cradle) to communicate with an E-WMS Control Center.

Serial/batch
This setting determines how to handle input of serial/batch numbers in general. When 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 if you want to enter serial/batch number for all receipts, using following choices:

  • Normal (default value): serial/batch number entry is disabled (you never receive serial/batch items)

  • Serial: assumes you are always receiving serial number items (entry of serial number per single unit, but can be left empty)

  • Batch: assumes you are always receiving batch items (entry of batch number for each receipt, but can be left empty)

Browse items
This setting determines whether it is allowed to to browse in item master data on the scanner, thus able to select an item from the list, instead of scanning an item code. If no item master data was exported to the scanner, then this setting could be disabled.
