Understand the creation and management process of label information for products:
Christian Vogler from SAP S/4HANA Cloud Product Management shares again an interesting post giving us an engineering expert view of some selected highlights of the SAP S/4HANA Cloud, private edition, and SAP S/4HANA for Product Compliance | 2022 release, particular on Label Management topics.
Label configuration as a foundation:
A label configuration reflects the label category of a product (the type of label required for a given product depending on factors such as product type, packaging, transportation requirements) and the label template that is relevant for it.
A label configuration contains also information about the applicable compliance requirements to a label (a compliance requirement in Label Management contains data for a label).
Assignment of Label Configurations to Products:
A label assignment contains one or multiple label categories that are relevant to a given product and the corresponding label configurations for it.
When you create a label assignment for a product, you perform an initial setup of label-relevant information for that product. You can also send a label assignment for printing to an external system like our labeling solution EUROLABEL.
“With this concept, we are bringing together the best of both worlds:
– Label data management, label determination, and process integration will be done in SAP S/4HANA Product Compliance
– Best-in-class label design and printing from partner solution (e.g. Eurolabel from Eurosoft Plus)…”Christian Vogler, SAP S/4HANA Cloud Product Management
