Output Booking in Repetitive Manufacturing with Bar Code reader

Dear All,

I want to book Output of Finished Product in Repetitive Manufacturing through Bar Code Reader. The Finished product is packed in Cartoons and Bar code is Printed on these Cartoons, so when user will read Bar Code through Bar Code Reader output of that Cartoon Quantity will be booked in SAP. He do not want to book it manually through MF42N in SAP. We are working on ECC 5.0. Is there any standard tool in SAP PP or we have to use BADi or Function Module.

    Hii sunil!!

    I dont have exact idea about bar code functionality in SAP, but I certainly give you the logic for the same.

    Generaly barcode is nothing else but pre-inserted data in number format. And your entries by keyboard are being read by scanner. So if we take your case for transaction MF42N, you need to create same output barcode programme with the help of ABAP.

    But tell me first how you people are creating barcode for the finished goods? What is the information in that barcode. Since you want to confirm the FG stock by MF42N, your barcode should contained that screen data. So please reply my question for more clarification.

      Hii Again,

      See there are 2 options, they are following-

      1) First, you can choose field name from SAP, where you want to store the BAR code data. In that case, from where you are generating the bar code, should contain all the information according to SAP fields. ABAPer will help you to write a prograame for that and will run BDC for the same. It will populate data everywhere.

      2) Secondly you can configure your bar code generator as SAP std screen, so when scanner will scan the barcode will populate data in SAP fields and will be updated in SAP system.

      For more information, wait for other experts.

      If it helps you, reward the same.

    That is very much possible.In REM Profile,you maintain Process control field.

    Normally, using barcode,your entries are downloaded in a flat file n then on periodic basis

    data is uploaded in SAP.

    But,this is a development and requires ABAPer help.

      Dear Stuti,

      Thanks a lot for your answer. We have this option of dowloading data in flat file but we want to make system online. Whenever Bar code reader will read data booking will take place in SAP. I would be very thankful if you can give some more inputs on this issue.
