2.1. General Settings tab

On the company level general settings can be specified that apply to the entire Produmex WMS add-On.

General tab

This includes the standard language (the language that is used by default on the thin clients, unless specified otherwise at the individual user level (cfr. Administration → Users).

Furthermore a reference to the company logo can be added: this path points to a shared folder which contains the company logo that is used on the login page of the thin clients.

DB credentials
The standard connection to the SAP Business One database (username / password ). Needs to be set for reporting purposes.

Logistic carriers
Next it is also possible to define whether logistic carriers (pallets, containers, …) are stored at one location per warehouse (where they are stored after emptying) and what the standard quality status for logistic carriers is.

  • Store logistic carriers on 1 storage location by warehouse \\When this option is enabled, logistic carriers are stored at one location per warehouse. Set the default storage location for logistic carriers on the Warehouse level.
    This setting should be enabled in order to use logistic carriers properly.
  • Move all logistic carriers on reception
    When this option is enabled, logistic carriers are automatically moved to the default storage location of the logistic carriers after the reception.
    This setting is only active if the ‘Store logistic carriers on 1 storage location by warehouse’ option is enabled.
  • Quality status for logistic carriers
    Select the standard quality status for logistic carriers from the dropdown menu.

Transport services
In case the company uses transport services, it is also possible to indicate whether the name of the driver has to be specified or selected when loading and/or whether the license plate and/or the trailer number of the transport vehicle should be recorded.
These global settings can be overruled on the SAP Shipping types.

Goods receipt requires suppl. ref
If this parameter is checked, the operator will be asked to enter a supplier reference number during the goods reception process.

Goods receipt automatically prints item labels
When this is ticked, the goods receipt on scanner will automatically print item labels. The number of labels printed, is the received number of items. Otherwise the user will be asked if he wants to print.

Use inventory returnable items on documents
If this is ticked, the returnable item added to the document will be the inventory item.

Set vat group returnable items on documents
If this is ticked, the VAT group of the returnable item will be set when added to the document. For purchase this will be OITM.VatGroupPu and for sales this will be OITM.VatGourpSa.

Check to add returnable items
When this is ticked, the system will try to add returnable items when booking a document. To avoid this check this can be unticked.

Disable item selection in flows
If this is ticked, it will not be possible to select an item on scanner/touchscreen. The user will always have to scan a barcode to identify the item.

Use Produmex Quality
This setting must be enabled in order to use the Produmex Quality module.

Pick list proposal allowed to exceed order
If ticked, it is possible to adjust the quantity of the proposal, so it exceeds the ordered quantity.

Do not lock stock on picking (pick lists can be created even if no stock is available)
When proposals are made, stock is locked. If this is ticked, the system does not lock stock when creating the proposal. This means that there is no more check of available quantity, so proposals can be made, even if there is not enough quantity.


  • Picking can only happen through the Ad Hoc Picking Flow.
  • his option does not apply to picklists for production. These pick lists will have locking.
  • If the Do not lock stock on picking setting is enabled, make sure that you disable the Make Picklist ready before print? setting on the picklist controller.

Allow overpicking
If the setting is checked, you can pick more items than specified in the sales order/picklist. This can be done for convenience purposes, e.g. if an order for 14 items is received and the packaging unit for that item is a box of 15 items. In such a case, picking a whole box may be more convenient than opening the box and taking one item out.
This option is available for Picking, Zone picking, Multi picking and Ad hoc picking tasks Route and Pick List. Overpicking is not allowed when picking an alternate stock.

Allow overpicking (Customer collect)
If this setting is enabled, the operator will be able to pick more items than specified in the sales order/pick list in the Ad hoc picking – Customer collect flow.

Count colli after picking
As a further check to ensure the correctness of deliveries, it can be specified that the operator has to count and enter the number of colli that were picked and put onto a logistic unit (SSCC), which the operator wishes to finish. The system will then verify whether this number is the same as the number of colli it has recorded during the picking process onto this logistic unit (SSCC). The count is done in the inventory UoM.
When this is ticked, it can be configured how many times the user can enter an incorrect count.
When this maximum is reached, the picked SSCC is considered unpicked, and a new pick list is created for these items, forcing the user to pick again.

Embed .NET forms in SBO forms
When this option is set, all forms run within SAP.
But in some cases it is useful if some screens are not embedded in SAP. In that case it is possible when you have 2 monitors to move certain screens outside of SAP on another monitor.
This can be done by unchecking this checkbox.
Some screens will be shown in the Windows taskbar, and will be outside of SAP.
Supported screens:

  • Organizational structure
  • Route planning
  • Production manager
  • Cycle count – Select location
  • Cycle count – Process

Usability Improvement Program
If the Usability Improvement Program (UIP) setting is enabled, the add-on automatically sends information to Boyum IT about how the product is used and that information is used to improve the related features.
The gathered data sent to Boyum IT can be:

  • Feedback: generic information (e.g. SAP version, resolution) and add-on specific information (e.g. number of configurations)
