RF Scanner reading storage bins in 3PL

Hi Experts ,

Please help me out in resolving the below requirement

It is a third party warehouse where they are having there own storage bin naming convention as 16 digits as WP-01-16-05-B-01 , as per SAP standard the storage bin characters of 10 digits is allowed so the customer has given a relaxation to maintain 9 didgits as 011605B01 by removing WP and hyphen. So the exact requirement is RF scanner has to read 16 digits and should display the 16 digits in the scanner but the SAP should consider only 9 digits as mentioned above . So please check and help me out with your possible solutions .

Thanks and regards

Sunil

    Hi

    There is two options available to achive your requirement.

    Option 1. While scanning it self you can eleminate the WP and hyphen by setting rules in the scanner gun, in that way you will get only 9 digits in the scanner screen and it can be updated in SAP

    Option 2. After sanning the entire Bin 16 digits bin number, whil confirming to update the bin number in SAP, at program level elemintate the WP and hyphen and update in SAP

    Hi,

    You just have to enhance your logic on the verification field on you RF screen. Once the user scans the bin, there are user exits /BADIs available to verify the scanned value against SAP suggest value. So in the code you have to strip off the hiphens and then verify the value.

    Hope that helps

    Thanks
