Description: Currently we are using a non IBM developed application for converting spoolfiles to PDF-Files. On most documents provided for our customers (for example: quotations, order confirmations, delivery notes, invoices) we are printing '2D-barcodes'. These barcodes are created with a WIDTH of 0.007. Many of our customers are using barcode readers which are developed and produced by us. These barcode readers are produced to read only barcodes with a WIDTH of 0.007. Now we are planning to move from this application to IBM 5770TS1 (Transform Services). While our development team did first tests with 5770TS1 they determined that the barcode on all our documents is printed much to big. MSG-ID CPD6DF0 is shown in the joblog. Then we opened PMR 08107.022.724. The IBM software support told us that the minimum supported barcode WIDTH for 5770TS1 is 0.02. To be able to use 5770TS1 in the future the minimum WIDTH for printing barcodes should be changed to 0.007 or even lower.
System: ERP systems, Online shopping systems
In front of every position on our documents the customers are able scan barcodes of items with our own developed barcode reader. Our customers can use this information to place orders, to manage stock in their own store and for many more functions.
