Hi experts !
I am new to SAP EHS. Can you provide some examples comparing the actual business scenario of label usage in a company with that of GLM components. I feel it will be useful to clearly understand terminologies like Label stock, etc... I have doubt in differentiating label size and size of label stock. something which is stock have to be mentioned in terms of quantity, rit..?
It gives more confusion in understanding the label stock and label size.
You can blindly think in this way, that labels stock would deals with the paper size/ dimensions.
for ex - A4, A3, etc.,
But in Label stock determination you have to consider couple of things like validity areas, label categories, Label size,.....where you can control your labels.
and Label size would be the layout sizes, which is part of the label stock.
Both of these required in creation of the label. Unit of measures in genreal practice, used in MM. but you have some other choices, you can go for.
I can provide some more hints on GLM, how it works.
you can create the label stock in the transaction CBGL_LS02 and the label size is part of the label stock always. and also we consider always to maintain the label size is less than or equal to the label stock.
Generation variant deals as an intermediate, to connnect the label stock and the wwi report template.
In material master (label data view) you can maintain either generation variant field (or) label size. to pick the correct label for printing.
for supppose, you maintained the label size in the material master, the same checks the label stocks, from their the generation variant will be picked up automatically.
