List of Procedures


Creating a Packaging Order


Procedure


1. In the Serialized Manufacturing application, select Packaging --> Packaging orders tab. The application displays the list of packaging orders and the Create packaging order form.


Note: When viewing the details of a packaging order, you can open the Create packaging order form by clicking Create.



2. Fill in the form as described below. The required fields are marked with an asterisk (*) in the form.


FieldAction
Order IDEnter order ID. The allowed character length is 1-255 characters.
Order descriptionEnter order description. The allowed character length is 1-255 characters.
Select product

Select a product code. The application displays a searchable drop-down with a prefiltered list of products. You can search for any product registered in the system by entering the product code in the search field.


If you want to use Wipotec-OCS packaging line and the product you specify here is aggregated, specify the aggregation level structure in the article mapping of the Wipotec-OCS V2 shopfloor channel where you are sending this production order.


For more information on the aggregation level structure in the article mapping of the Wipotec-OCS, see Configuring a Wipotec-OCS V2 Channel and Specifying Aggregation Levels.

Product code schemaSelect the product code schema. The application supports GTIN only.
QuantityGive the number of serials used for production in this order. The maximum allowed value is 10000.
Extra percentage (%)

Provide the extra percentage on top of the quantity. This field ensures that there are enough serial numbers in case any errors happen during production. The valid range is 0-100.


For example, if you request 1000 serial numbers and you state "10" as the extra percentage, 100 additional serial numbers will be created.

BatchSelect a batch for the product code. The application displays a searchable drop-down with a list of batches released for that product code. You can search for any batch released for the product by entering the batch number (ID) in the search field.

You can also leave the field blank, for example, because an external system generates the batch over API. You can empty the field by clicking on the X icon.
Expiry dateThe application automatically fills in the expiration date based on the data registered in the system for that batch. It is not possible to manually change the expiration date.

You can also leave the field blank, for example, because an external system generates the batch over API. By removing the selected batch, the Expiry date field also becomes empty.
Target marketSelect the market ID. Apply the value that was given during the product code registration.

Note: Before registering a product code in the Serialized Manufacturing application, you need to create the applicable market profile under the Serialized Manufacturing application → Settings tab.
Packaging lineSelect the packaging line where you want to send the packaging order.
Planned production dateSelect the planned production date by using the datepicker. You can select the actual date or a future date.

When you want to send requests to an Order Management Station (OMS) in Kazakhstan or Uzbekistan, this field is required.
SerializedBy selecting this checkbox you ensure that a unique serial number is added to each pack while executing the order. Otherwise, you can execute packaging for non-serialized items.


3. Click Save.


The order is ready for execution. You can execute the order in one of the following ways: 

  • Through Manufacturer V2 API.
  • By releasing the order to the packaging line as described in Releasing a Packaging Order to the Packaging Line. A Wipotec-OCS V2 shopfloor channel is associated with the packaging line to connect to a Wipotec-OCS machine.


When the packaging order is created and released to the packaging line, the serial numbers are marked as Assigned in the serial number pool and are associated with the order.
