Using Movilitas.Cloud as a Gateway between SAP ATTP and TraceLink for Serialization Purposes


In this use case, you use the Serialized Manufacturing application and other Movilitas.Cloud services as a gateway between SAP ATTP and TraceLink systems to perform serialization activities:

  • Movilitas.Cloud forwards serial requests and commissioning requests from SAP ATTP to TraceLink.
  • Movilitas.Cloud receives and processes responses from TraceLink and forwards the responses to SAP ATTP.


Your company acts as a Contract Manufacturing Organization (CMO) that uses SAP ATTP and wants to exchange information with the Marketing Authorization Holder (MAH) that uses TraceLink.



Before You Begin


Make sure that you have created a TraceLink Partner channel to upload requests to TraceLink addressing the MAH, and to download responses from TraceLink addressing your company (CMO). For more information, see Configuring a TraceLink Partner Channel and Managing SFTP Transactions.


Procedure


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


2. Register the manufacturing site(s) under the Serialized Manufacturing application --> Site management --> Sites tab. For more information, see Managing Manufacturing Sites.


3. Register the MAH under the Serialized Manufacturing application --> Site management --> MAHs tab. For more information, see Managing MAHs.


4. Register the products for the RUS or UAE market by giving the master data under the Serialized Manufacturing application --> Products --> Products tab.  For more information, see Managing Products.


5. For each product, configure the serial management under the Serialized Manufacturing application --> Products --> Products tab. You need to select the previously configured TraceLink Partner channel and specify the manufacturing site and the MAH. You can activate automatic replenishment or you can manually request serial numbers. For more information, see Managing Products.


6. Request serial numbers and SSCCs from TraceLink to fill the serial number pool and the SSCC pool. For more information, see Managing Products and Managing SSCC Pool.


You can monitor the transactions on the TraceLink Partner channel and you can also receive notifications about errors on the channel through e-mail after you give an email address in the channel settings.


This step is optional because you can set automatic replenishment for both the serial numbers and the SSCCs and then it is not required to fill the pool manually. When there are not enough serial numbers or SSCCs in the pool to fulfill a request, the automatic replenishment function fills the pool with the required amount without human intervention and then the request from SAP ATTP is successful.

  • For serial numbers, you can activate automatic replenishment while configuring the product in the Serialized Manufacturing application.
  • For SSCCs, you can activate automatic replenishment on the SAP ATTP channel. Go to the next step.


7. Create an SAP ATTP channel and configure it to receive requests from SAP ATTP.

  • You will need the Movilitas.Cloud endpoints and the credentials so that you can send requests to Movilitas.Cloud from SAP ATTP.
  • Customize the channel based on the preferred business processes, like activating direct release to market from SAP ATTP, activating SSCC automatic replenishment and more.

For more information, see Configuring an SAP ATTP Channel and Managing the EPCIS Messages.


8. As an SAP ATTP user, send the serial request or the SSCC request to Movilitas.Cloud.


Movilitas.Cloud processes the request and sends an asynchronous response to SAP ATTP including the serial numbers or SSCCs and, depending on the market, other crypto parameters.


You can monitor the incoming requests on the SAP ATTP channel and you can also receive notifications about errors on the channel through e-mail after you give an email address in the channel settings.


9. By using the provided serial numbers and SSCCs, produce the items at your manufacturing site.


10. As an SAP ATTP user, send the commissioning request to Movilitas.Cloud. The commissioning request contains the produced items including aggregations.


You can monitor the incoming requests on the SAP ATTP channel and you can also receive notifications about errors on the channel through e-mail after you give an email address in the channel settings.


11. Commission the items from Movilitas.Cloud to TraceLink. You can monitor the transactions on the TraceLink Partner channel and you can also receive notifications about errors on the channel through e-mail after you give an email address in the channel settings.


This action can be manual or automatic depending on the setting on the SAP ATTP channel. For more information on how to release the items directly to the market (TraceLink) from SAP ATTP, without human intervention, see Configuring an SAP ATTP Channel and Managing the EPCIS Messages.


If you want to manually commission the items, make sure that the direct release to market is turned OFF on the SAP ATTP channel. In this case, the items to be commissioned are listed under the Serialized Manufacturing application --> Commissioning tab. For more information, see Commissioning.
