Provide the global trade item numbers (GTINs) of the products in the Manufacturer for Pharma application so that you can fill the serial number pool for them.


List of Procedures


Managing Single Global Trade Item Numbers


Before You Begin


Make sure you have done the following:

  • Created a business channel with SAP ATTP or serial number management source
  • Enabled the Manufacturer for Pharma application for the selected tenant


Procedure


1. In the Manufacturer for Pharma application, open the GTINs tab.

2. On the Manage Single tab of the Create GTIN form, enter the GTIN of the product and a description for the product.

3. (Optional) Select the Repacked Product checkbox. The Non-Serialized Origin GTIN field appears.

4. Enter a non-serialized origin GTIN.


You need a non-serialized origin GTIN if the company repackages source products that have no serial numbers. The GTIN you specify here must be created in the company range and it will not be used for any commercial product that goes to the market.


5. Select a serial number source.


You can select the business channel with SAP ATTP or serial number management source that you created earlier.


6. Select a channel to update serials over.


If you want to send the status of serial numbers received from the production line back to SAP ATTP, select the business channel with SAP ATTP source here.


7. (Optional) Select the Automatic Replenish checkbox and specify a filling amount and a threshold.


If you select automatic replenishment, whenever there is a request for serials in the system and there aren’t enough serials left to fulfill that request, new ones are generated or fetched from the source automatically.


The threshold specifies how many serial numbers are to be available in the system. If the number of serial numbers is less than the number specified here, new ones are generated or fetched from the source automatically in the amount specified in the Filling Amount field until the threshold is reached.


8. (Optional) Select the Product is Aggregated checkbox and specify the aggregated product and the aggregated amount.


You need this option if the GTIN you are creating is a parent GTIN for other GTINs. For example, the GTIN you are configuring is a case that contains 5 packs: in this case, you provide the GTIN of the packs in the Aggregated Product field and enter 5 as the aggregated amount.


You can include a GTIN that is aggregated in a production order and send the order to a packaging line that uses a shop floor channel with Wipotec-OCS source. It is possible to have up to 4 levels of aggregation. You specify the aggregation structure for the GTINs in the settings of the shop floor channel with Wipotec-OCS source that is included as a packaging line in the production orders.


9. Enter a number in the Pack Size field.


In this field, you provide the number of pills that go into the pack. This piece of information is required when sending commissioning requests to the European (EU) Hub.


Next Steps


You can now fill the serial number pool for the GTIN.
