SAP EHS GLM

Hi Experts !

I have few doubts in GLM.

1. In GLM we have 6 GLM scenarios by default like

Make-to-Stock labeling scenario

· Make-to-Order labeling scenario

· Delivery labeling scenario

· Goods Receipt labeling scenario

· Generic labeling scenario

· Sample labeling scenario

But I want to print the labels for the shipment based on shipment order. Is it possible ? To so do, I have to create new scenario or can modify existing scenario ?

2. Using any of the above 6 scenarios one will print the label. But how to check whether labels are printed for a sales order (for eg) or not..? Once the label is printed, how to block the particular sales order from printing label again ?

3. For Labels, can we use SAP Script/Smart Forms, Adobe forms instead of WWI Templates ?

4. For printing Labels from GLM, do SAP suggest / requires any particular printers (physical printer to print the labels) ?

I have few doubts in installing Generation server also. Can u provide me the logic behind the generation server, synchronous server, EHS Management server. In our system we have installed WWI and installed WWI Generation server also. But when CGSDAM is executed i get error stating that "No EHS management server is currently logged on at the SAP gateway".

Also when i execute cg5z, i see some logs. when i select a line, then UTILITIES -> TEST SERVER, i get error msg as "No server data"

Guide me rectify the error.

    Dear Subash,

    in response to ur question

    I have few doubts in installing Generation server also. Can u provide me the logic behind the generation server, synchronous server, EHS Management server. In our system we have installed WWI and installed WWI Generation server also. But when CGSDAM is executed i get error stating that "No EHS management server is currently logged on at the SAP gateway".

    Also when i execute cg5z, i see some logs. when i select a line, then UTILITIES -> TEST SERVER, i get error msg as "No server data"

    The generation server can be installed only when EHS Administration server is up and running. This generation server is the utility which generates jobs and completes the document generation process.

    The synchronous server is something different which checks the generation servers . Depending on the load, it will divert the jobs to a different generation server for load balancing.

    With respect to the error u face, I believe the configuration is not made correctly. This is tricky and tough though to make it work.

    You have to configure the EHS server as per WWI cookbook.

    the DMS settings must be in place. follow the OSS 1394553, 580586, 580607, 995736, 1091699.

    • Dear all

      may there might still be a little "misinterpretation" regarding "generation server" and set up.

      1.) a generation server should not bet set up "locally" but really on a "server". This server/These servers has to be available 24 hours 7 days a week (more critical GLM than SDS distrbution). Please check cookbook; it is quite common to use "virtual software" to use one hardware and to set up more than one gen server on that hardware; please be aware of the fact that the "driver" for that set up decision is Microsoft Word. This software can only process on WWI process (refer to several OSS notes); therefore if you need high volumes of printing/processing etc. you should prepare two or more virtual maschines on the same hardware as then you have more than one Word available.

      2.) it is common that your architecture is different in dev, qual and prod. Therefore in dev may be you have only two gen servers, qual 4 and prod 8 (depending on your need)

      3.) Therefore it should be clear that depending on dev, qual and prod you need different servers, different RFC etc. etc. etc.

      With higher release SAP provides some additional tools regarding WWI. Here you can check better the status of SDS distribution etc. Please check SAP help.

      Be ware of the fact: if you want to use "pdf" during SDS distribution (or similar processes) you need to make sure that any ! generaiotn server does have the same software

      This is one of the crucial topics and takes most of the time during operation of WWI server to make sure that any logo, graphic etc. on any server is the same (you will have very strange results if you don't take care regarding this !)

      Keep in mind: there is a customizing option there you do something to influence the "load balancing" on the WWI servers. But you need a very good concept how you would like to use this option

    Dear Subash

    regarding:

    For Labels, can we use SAP Script/Smart Forms, Adobe forms instead of WWI Templates ?

    By standard: No; but there is a "potential option"

    Check SAP Online help. Check the Business functions related to EHS. In one of them an "option" is described to "print" something not using WWI. If this is possible with GLM: no idea. Nether tried to implement that.

    Please check as well "SAP Recipe Management" docu. There is reference ot a solution not using WWI which is "part" of SAP EHS.

    Regarding:

    For printing Labels from GLM, do SAP suggest / requires any particular printers (physical printer to print the labels) ?

    Depends on your need. If you execute an inquiry in this FORUM you will find reference to "high volume printing" in GLM. In reality: if you use WWI: There are only "physical reasons of type of label" to use special printers (as Zebra printers etc.). And because of "Bar code" etc. Check this FORUM as well.. Not an easy topic with Bar Code

    Regarding:

    I have few doubts in installing Generation server also. Can u provide me the logic behind the generation server, synchronous server, EHS Management server. I

    Don't go deep into that. You can not compare SDS printing to GLM printing etc.. Just do it like SAP is recommending for GLM. Please separate the topics:

    "generation server" from "synchronous or asynchronous". Regarding EHS Manage,ent server: this is the same. Check e.g. http://help.sap.com/erp2005_ehp_06/helpdata/en/69/46e98392e3c04ea65c1b682cc98cfa/content.htm?frameset=/en/c1/eda0f591ec12408b25e7a1b369ca45/frameset.htm

    Chapter EH&S Management Server


    Regarding any WWI topic: please check WWI cookbook: anything is explained therein

    Regarding:

    2. Using any of the above 6 scenarios one will print the label. But how to check whether labels are printed for a sales order (for eg) or not..? Once the label is printed, how to block the particular sales order from printing label again ?

    There are severla levels of "answer": First: you can prepare GLM using a "log". The log should give you indication which label has been found processed etc.

    Second: at the end: anything ends as a "SAP print stream to SAP Spool"

    Third: there is no "physical" guarantee that label is printed (same as MSDS/SDS)

    Regarding the second topic. mmh interesting question. I am not sure how the standard handles that; i would assume a second print is possible (reason is the same like MSDS: may be there was a "misprint" of label; therefore it does not always makes sense to "hinder" second printing; it is a matter of "user training" etc. from my point of view

    Labeling Scenarios: reading cross:

    http://help.sap.com/erp2005_ehp_05/helpdata/EN/3b/bea82cff7411d5b854006094b92d29/content.htm?frameset=/en/36/0da1b1ff9211d5b854006094b92d29/frameset.htm

    Chapter: Labeling Scenario

    You can prepare your own scenario. Which of the above mentioned once is the right "template": this you need to check yourself
