This document describes, when it is necessary to export master data to CAB
hand terminals, when using Activesync or File communication. This document does
not apply when using E-WMS ASP (WMSclient).
When you are not working with
wireless hand terminals (RF), you will need to make the item master data
available on the hand terminal, if you want to validate scanned item codes.
Export of item master data is only required:
For guided processes, like order picking, the item code (and if configured
properly, also the 'scan code') is exported together with the order lines to
You will have to export
item data to the hand terminals, after:
When having order lines in progress on the scanner, the scan code and
batch/serial status is exported with the order line itself, so exported to the
scanner when sending the order lines.
Item data can be exported to the hand terminal in Exact Globe Next menu
WMS, Send, Send item data.
Disable item validation on hand terminal
Is it possible to disable the item master data validation on the hand
terminal. In that case, item master data does not have to be exported to the
scanners. This item validation is only required for unguided scanning processes,
like transfers or counts. For processes like order picking, the item code is
already validated against the item code in the order line previously sent to the
scanner. You can disable item validation in the E-WMS scanner settings per
process, for example in System, E-WMS, Scanners, Stock inventory settings, in
section 'Active Sync'.
For more information, see
Scanner stock inventory settings.
Scan codes (alternate recognition codes for your item code) are only recognized
When using Activesync or File communication, only the scan code in Globe
'item maintenance' (WMS button), can be used. When using ASP (or RF), you are
able to use 'WMS
scancodes', allowing you to define multiple scan codes for one item, and in
WMS ASP: to apply a unit factor automatically.
