WMS Serial/Batch Generation offers following functionality.
Following are currently known limitations:
In menu System, General, Settings, WMS General, new sections 'Generate
batch number' and 'Generate serial number' have been added. This allows you to
configure different templates for batch items and for serial number items.
Please refer to the
WMS General settings for more details.
E-WMS Receipt Registration settings and in
E-WMS Production Receipt settings, the setting 'Accept existing batch
number' (both in sections 'Automatic validation' and in 'Manual validation')
need to be enabled. When working with Serial- batch generation, the S/B number
always exists before reading back the receipt.
A new setting 'S/B number generation' has been added in menu
System, E-WMS, Scanners: Receipt registration settings and in Production
This setting enables or disables the 'S/B' button, to be able to generate serial/batch
numbers in the receipts processes.
In order to use label printing from the hand terminal, it is required to
BarTender Enterprise Automation with BarTender Commander on the IIS
server. BarTender Commander will scan for new label print jobs and start
BarTender to print the label. Please refer to document
WMS - setting up hand terminal label printing for a guide on how to set up
After BarTender and BarTender Commander have been installed and configured, you
can create SQL views and design labels in BarTender. Sample SQL views and
BarTender labels are provided in
this document. After that, the views and labels have to be linked in E-WMS.
To be able to print labels from the hand terminal when generating new
serial/batch numbers, you will have to configure new 'labels' in menu System,
There are separate 'applications' available for printing labels for batch
items and for serial number items, since you may require another number of
labels for these item types.
The basic functionality of this screen is explained in
this document. Please keep in mind that the label (location) has to be
accessible to the BarTender (Commander) user account on the IIS server, a local
folder on the IIS server would probably be most suited.
The template for batch numbers is configured as: %J2%D3 (Year 2 digits, day of
year 3 digits, "12092").
A purchase receipt is done both for a batch item, to generate new numbers:
press the OPTIONS button and the S/B button
After confirming the number of labels to print, 10 identical labels with the
new batch number are printed.
In the (discontinued) WMS 'ERF' client or Internet Explorer client, the
S/B button is available directly on the scan screen:
The template for serial numbers is configured as %J2%MM.%V5 (Year 2 digits,
month 2 digits, literal text ".", sequence number 5 digits: "1204.00001").
A serial number item is received in WMS Production Receipts, user presses the
'S/B' button to generate and print new serial numbers:
After entering the numbers of labels to print, 10 new serial numbers are
created and 10 labels which each a unique number are printed.
