This section provides use cases of how to configure and manage the Serialized Manufacturing application.


The workflows illustrate typical use cases for the user. The description is not exhaustive and is not meant to be exhaustive. The goal is to help the users to get an idea of how to use the application for certain activities.


List of Use Cases


Using Movilitas.Cloud as an Administration Tool without Control on the Shopfloor

In this use case, you use Movilitas.Cloud as an administration tool to register products and production orders, and to commission items to market. Movilitas.Cloud does not have control over the shopfloor. External systems, like ERP or the middleware system on the shopfloor, are integrated with the Manufacturer V2 API. Serial numbers and SSCCs are defined on your side.




Before You Begin


Make sure that you have configured all the channels you need.


ChannelsDescription
Manufacturer V2 API

To access the Serialized Manufacturing application from an external system through API, configure the Manufacturer V2 API channel. For more information, see Configuring Manufacturer V2 API Channel.


For the communication through the Manufacturer V2 API, you also need to have a valid authentication token. For more information, see Managing API Keys and Static Token.

EU HubTo report to the EU Hub, configure the EU Hub business channel. For more information, see Configuring an EU Hub Channel and Viewing EU Hub Messages.
BPOMTo report to the National Agency of Drug and Food Control in Indonesia (Badan Pengawas Obat dan Makanan - BPOM), configure the BPOM regulatory channel. For more information, see Configuring BPOM Channel, Viewing BPOM Logs, and Importing Shipping Locations.


Procedure


1. Create the market profiles under the Serialized Manufacturing application --> Settings tab. For more information, see Settings.


2. Manage the products under the Serialized Manufacturing application --> Products tab. For the products, you must define the master data. You can also create product groups, that you can associate with products. For more information, see Managing Products and Managing Product Groups.


3. (Optional) Register a packaging line under the Serialized Manufacturing application --> Packaging --> Packaging lines tab. You can give a name and a packaging line tag that is used for the API communication, but all of these are optional. As there is no control on the packaging line from Movilitas.Cloud, ignore specifying a shopfloor channel. For more information, see Managing Packaging Lines.


4. Create packaging orders either in the Serialized Manufacturing application or from your ERP system through the Manufacturer V2 API channel. For more information, see Managing Packaging Orders or the Manufacturer V2 API documentation.


5. Produce the packs and containers on the shopfloor. Communicate with Movilitas.Cloud over Manufacturer V2 API. For more information on the API requests, see the Manufacturer V2 API documentation.


#Action
5.1Request the order details from Movilitas.Cloud through Manufacturer V2 API.
5.2

Prepare the serial numbers and the SSCCs used for the aggregation. Make sure that the given values are unique and GS1-compliant.


Note: Action outside Movilitas.Cloud.

5.3

Start the packaging order by moving its status to In Progress in Movilitas.Cloud through Manufacturer V2 API.


Serial number assignment is bypassed in Movilitas.Cloud.

5.4

Produce the packs and perform the aggregations on the shopfloor.


Note: Action outside Movilitas.Cloud.

5.5

Update Movilitas.Cloud with the results through Manufacturer V2 API:

  • Commission the serials used for packaging.
  • Send the aggregation actions.
  • Finish the packaging order.


Result:

  • The SN/SSCC pool, the SSCC history, and the pack history are updated in Movilitas.Cloud.
  • The packaging order goes to Done status.
  • The produced items are waiting for commissioning.


6. Decide how you want to commission the produced items to the market:

  • Commission separately from shipping under the Serialized Manufacturing application --> Commissioning tab. For more information, see Commissioning. Then, go to the next step.
  • Commission while shipping. Use the Serialized Logistics application and skip the steps below. For more information, see the Transfers and Reaggregations Use Case in the Serialized Logistics Workflows.


7. Monitor the commissioning requests sent through the EU Hub or BPOM channel by opening the specific EU Hub or BPOM channel under Dashboard --> Channels tab and make sure that the requests are successful. For more information, see Configuring an EU Hub Channel and Viewing EU Hub Messages or Configuring BPOM Channel, Viewing BPOM Logs, and Importing Shipping Locations.


8. Track the SSCC pool, the SSCC history, and the pack history under the Serialized Manufacturing application --> SN/SSCC pool tab. For more information, see:


9. View the batch data and the pack status summary for the batch. For more information, see Managing Batches.


Next Steps


The items are ready for shipping. You can also do the commissioning while shipping the items. For more information, see the Serialized Logistics application.

Printing Labels on Zebra Devices and Commissioning the Items




Before You Begin


Make sure that:


Procedure


1. Create the market profile under the Serialized Manufacturing application --> Settings tab. For more information, see Settings.


2. Register the products by giving the master data under the Serialized Manufacturing application --> Products tab. You can also create product groups, that you can associate with products. For more information, see Managing Products and Managing Product Groups.


3. For each product, configure the serial management under the Serialized Manufacturing application --> Products tab. You can generate serials by using an SNM channel or you can request serials from an SAP ATTP or SAP ICH system through the applicable business channel. For more information, see Managing Products.


4. Create batches for the product. For more information, see Managing Batches.


5. Release the batch on your own or by involving another user. For more information, see Managing Batches.


6. Create a ZPL label template. For more information, see Managing Templates.


7. Configure the printing destinations. For more information, see Managing Printing Destinations.


8. Create printing orders. For more information, see Managing Printing Orders.


9. Print the labels by executing the order immediately after creation or later by releasing the order to the printing destination. For more information, see Managing Printing Orders.


10. Decide how you want to commission the produced items to the market:

  • Commission separately from shipping. Go to the next step.
  • Commission while shipping and you want to ship by batch. Go to the next step.
  • Commission while shipping and you want to ship by stock transfer ID (STID) or purchase order ID (POID). Skip the steps below and use the Serialized Logistics application. For more information, see the Transfers and Reaggregations Use Case in the Serialized Logistics Workflows.


11. Configure the operators who scan the printed labels for commissioning. For more information, see Managing Operators.


12. As an operator, scan the printed labels for commissioning by using Movilitas Mobile. Movilitas.Cloud is updated with the scanned items. For more information, see Commission Packs (Mobile).


13. If you want to commission while shipping by batch, skip the steps below and use the Serialized Logistics application. For more information, see the Transfers and Reaggregations Use Case in the Serialized Logistics Workflows.


14. Commission the scanned items to the market. For more information, see Commissioning.


15. View the batch data and the pack status summary for the batch. For more information, see Managing Batches.
