Bar code specification - Mobile Data Entry

Hi Gurus,

Could you please explain how the Bar Code configuration (IMG -> LE -> Mobile Data Entry -> Bar Code) is used by SAP system? In IMG document, it mentions that:

In this workstep you define by which bar code standard (for example,EAN128) the storage bin, material, storage unit, quantity, delivery,shipment, material staging area, wave pick, and the handling unit are to be identified.

Does this mean that LM transactions will be using the bar code structure configured here to interprate data captured via RF device, e.g. using AI to identify/convert the data scanned in? (My understanding is that scanner is just another type of input device like keyboard, and LM transactions will simply accept whatever data scanned in without considering Bar Code configuration).


This Bar Code configuration will be used when printing bar code on label from SAP system?

You input will be really appreciated!!

    R Device will read the information form Barcode and using which you can perform pick and order /confirm To /put away many more .

    SAP Web console is used for RF devices.

    In ths step you assign the allowed barcode type UCC/EAN128 in the warehouse, you are right as it is used for printing the SU/HU labels.

    RF device is used to scan the barcode. To use Rf device for various transactions (LM) you will be scanning the barcodes. For this you need to do bar code configuration .

    Hope this clear your view now.
