    Configuration: Bar Code Type UCC/EAN 128

    Overview

    This document contains details and instructions regarding configuration settings. Such settings are normally performed by an administrator. If you do not have the required authorization, contact an administrator.

    End of the caution

    To find this activity, go to the --> Business Configuration --> Implementation Projects view. Select your implementation project and click Open Activity List. Select the Fine-Tune phase, then select the activity from the activity list.

    In order to decode and encode bar codes, the system needs a repository of bar code standards identifying their mapping to the application fields in this system. To facilitate this, the system provides you with two UCC/EAN 128 templates to use as the standard format for bar code decoding and encoding.

    Using the Bar Code Type UCC/EAN 128 activity, you can modify some attributes of each application identifier (AI) according to your business needs. For example, you can change the length of the AI.

    Benefits

    Bar codes allow you to use scanners and other reading devices to enter data into the system. This reduces operation time for task execution and verifies all data input, guaranteeing the accuracy of transaction data.

    Prerequisites

    Scanners or other mobile devices are needed.

    Settings

    The controls and possible settings in this activity are explained below.

    Settings

    Explanation

    Task

    Bar Code Type

    The type of bar code.

    Edit the Bar Code Type if required.

    Bar Code Description

    A brief description of the bar code type.

    It is recommended that you do not change this description.

    Active

    An indicator that the bar code type is available for use.

    Select the check box if the bar code type is available for use. Clear the check box if the bar code type is not available for use.

    Application Identifier:

    • 01 Global trade item number
    • 10 Identified stock
    • 21 Serial number
    • 30 Quantity (each)
    • 402 Delivery note
    • 91 Product ID
    • 93 Logistics area
    • 94 Logistics unit
    • 95 Unit of measure
    • 97 Label ID
    • 98 Product specification

    AIs appear as two or more digits at the beginning of a bar code element string. The AI uniquely defines the format and meaning of the data that follows.

    Choose the global AIs provided by bar code standard UCC/EAN 128. AIs in the range 90-99 are reserved for use in your business. Specify AIs in this range for internal use or, by agreement with trading partners, for external use.

    Description

    A brief description of what the AI is identifying. This is globally defined by bar code standard UCC/EAN 128.

    It is recommended that you do not change this description.

    Variable Length

    An indicator that the length of the AI is variable.

    Select the check box if you want the length of the AI to be variable. A delimiter is used to determine the end of a variable-length AI. Clear the check box if you want to set a fixed length for the AI.

    Fixed Length

    The length of fixed AIs.

    If you have chosen to fix the length of AIs, specify that length here.

    Decimal Places

    The number of decimal places you want to the right of the decimal point in the AI.

    Specify the number of decimal places you want to the right of the decimal point in the AI. The number of decimal places is part of the AI length.

    Assigned Application Fields:

    • Global Trade Item Number
    • Identified Stock
    • Quantity (Each)
    • Delivery Note
    • Product
    • Logistics Area
    • Logistics Unit
    • Unit of Measure
    • Label
    • Product Specification

    The application field that you want to assign to the AI.

    Select the application field that you want to assign to the AI. You can only assign one system application field to each AI for bar code decoding and encoding.

    I hope this helps.

      Dear Sandeep,

      Thanks for your reply. Here i understand that we will be defining the length for AI's.

      But after this we need to integrate scanners/mobile devices with Byd system. I couldn't get any idea regarding this integration with scanner devices. Please help us on the same.

      Thanks in advance.

    Hi Ram Prasad P,

    besides the native barcode support of SAP Business ByDesign partners could use our standard web service portfolio to integrated rugged devices that support scanning. Please have a look at Scan4Cloud for example.

    Best regards,

    Stefan

    Hello everyone,

    Can you please let me know what could be an approximate cost for integrating barcode scanning with SAP byd for about 10 users. What could be the onetime cost and recurring cost if any?

    Kind regards,

    Narayanan Raghavan
