Start Activity (Scan Barcode)


(system) #1

What does your barcode look like?  In regular font not barcode font…

 

For example say job 1234 Assembly 0 oper 10…

                1243-0-10  what character do you use for the “-“

 

Or what’s the trigger character for Epicor to know where to parse the data?

This may help you, but it's a little more work.

We use 2D barcodes containing several different pieces of information. So I created a field on every form that everyone scans into and created an on leave event that parses the data into the correct fields on the form using the forms dataview.

 

     Dim OprNumX as EpiCombo = CType(csm.GetNativeControlReference("4469529c-d636-4205-b17a-def6a7469d8f"), EpiCombo)
     Dim edv As EpiDataView = CType(oTrans.EpiDataViews("Start"), EpiDataView)

     edv.dataView(edv.Row).BeginEdit()
     edv.dataView(edv.Row)("JobNum") = ParsedScan(0)
     edv.dataView(edv.Row)("AssemblySeq") = ParsedScan(1)
     edv.dataView(edv.Row).EndEdit()
     edv.Notify(New EpiNotifyArgs(oTrans, edv.Row, edv.Column))
     OprNumX.focus()

Back in Vantage 6 (who knew I would ever utter those words) 

You could scan one long bar code such as JOBXXX-ASSY-SEQ

 

And it would allow you to start the activity from that now with version 9 and even 8 the assembly and sequence are drop downs and the dataview triggers auto tabs when you type in a job number so you can't use a single barcode or even multiple barcodes to start the activity.

 

 

Has anyone worked around this?

We ran into the same issue too.  We had to program into the scanner a 3 second pause after it scans in the job number into MES so that the system can validate the job number before scanning in the assembly and sequence with a single barcode.  It works the majority of the time except when the system is slow and the job validation takes longer than 3 seconds.

We are 700b and have done a single barcode as well as individual barcodes on our job traveler. The issue we ran into is with one barcode is the scan gun we are using couldn't be programmed with a long enough delay and the mes terminal doesn't respond quick enough. This ends up putting the op in the assembly so with individual bar codes it works pretty well. We programmed a tab key around our barcode and so our users now scan the job then the assembly then the operation and it automatically goes to the next field and they are on their way.

We ran into the same issue too and set the pause to a max of 3 seconds after the job number.  It works the majority of the time except like you said when the MES terminal doesn’t respond fast enough for the job validation process to verify before tabbing to the assembly field.

We are 700b and have done a single barcode as well as individual barcodes on our job traveler. The issue we ran into is with one barcode is the scan gun we are using couldnx27;t be programmed with a long enough delay and the mes terminal doesnx27;t respond quick enough. This ends up putting the op in the assembly so with individual bar codes it works pretty well. We programmed a tab key around our barcode and so our users now scan the job then the assembly then the operation and it automatically goes to the next field and they are on their way.

Yeah but that doens't fix the notification events when you enter the job it automatically tabs to a specific field.

Can you remove the combo boxes for assembly and sequence, and replace with text boxes?

Back in Vantage 6 (who knew I would ever utter those words) 

You could scan one long bar code such as JOBXXX-ASSY-SEQ

 

And it would allow you to start the activity from that now with version 9 and even 8 the assembly and sequence are drop downs and the dataview triggers auto tabs when you type in a job number so you can't use a single barcode or even multiple barcodes to start the activity.

 

 

Has anyone worked around this?
