    Dear Mahe


    you will get a high level overview of GLM which is a good starting point. In this FORUM many threads have been discussed with topic "GLM". The Best Practise approaches of SAP regarding GLM has been mentioned as well. Therefore I will only enumerate the "critical" success factors

    a.) you need to understand the label printing scenarios

    b.) you need to understand the LabelView in material master (how to set up, how to maintain, what is the purpose etc.)

    c.) you need to understand "Bar code" printing and what is needed to print Bar Codes

    d.) difference between "normal" and customer specific labels

    e.) you need to understand the packaging hierarchy and how is it used and linke to GLM process

    f.) you need to understand set up of WWI Server (little bit different in comparison to the other WWI reports)

    g.) you should by familiar with WWI dynamic font sizing

    h.) you need to understand the "label"printing tool

    i.) Labels do need in many cases more data from SAP ERP system in comparison to SDS/MSDS. You need to understand which data is needed; to find corresponding report symbols or to create new ones


    In this FORUM you will find as well threads regarding on "high perfomance printing" topics etc.
