Before You Begin


Make sure that you have a digital identifier (DID) in your digital wallet provider (CARO by Spherity or XATP by LedgerDomain) as per your state license. To use XATP, you will also need an API key that you can obtain from XATP.

 

However, if you do not have a DID yet but you want to use CARO for ATP credentialing, you can create a tenant (business account) in CARO from Movilitas.Cloud and link that tenant to Movilitas.Cloud (your VRS provider) in CARO. As a result, you obtain the digital identifier while configuring the application.


Procedure


1. Create the USA market profile under the Serialized Manufacturing application --> Settings tab.

  • Default responder GLN
  • Responder contact information
  • ATP credentialing


For more information, see Settings.


2. Register the products for the USA market under the Serialized Manufacturing application --> Products --> Products tab. Manage your products in the VRS LD.

  • Product master data
  • DSCSA settings
    • VRS responder GLN.
    • LD settings.
    • Response settings.
    • Product verification endpoint that is either in Movilitas.Cloud or outside Movilitas.Cloud.


For more information, see Managing Products.


Continue with the next steps when the product verification endpoint is in Movilitas.Cloud.

Otherwise, end of the procedure.


3. If the product verification endpoint is the one in Movilitas.Cloud, perform serialization activities in the Serialized Manufacturing application.


The serialization activities cover a wide range of tasks, including serial management, batch management, label printing, integrating the shopfloor with Movilitas.Cloud over API, and updating Movilitas.Cloud with the serialized items. You decide the level of integration with Movilitas.Cloud.


The activities you perform in Movilitas.Cloud defines what type of data you store and find in Movilitas.Cloud.


There are several ways of facilitating these activities. The scope of the topic exceeds this description. Understand your business processes, study the articles in Online Help, and build up the serialization accordingly.


4. If your company outsources the manufacturing activities to a Contract Manufacturing Organization (CMO), receive the produced items in the Serialized Logistics application.


The CMO ships the items to your company and sends an EPCIS file about the shipment. The CMO is your supplier. Before receiving an EPCIS file:

  • Both the supplier and the receiving warehouse must be registered in the Serialized Logistics application.
  • If the CMO sends the EPCIS file from SAP ICH or TraceLink, the appropriate channel must be configured and associated with the supplier as the collaboration channel for inbound EPCIS.


For more information, see Managing Suppliers, Managing Warehouses, SAP ICH channel, and TraceLink Partner channel.


5. If a pack is suspect or illegitimate, mark the pack accordingly under the Serialized Manufacturing application --> SN/SSCC pool --> Pack history tab. For more information, see Viewing the Pack History and Setting the Authenticity of a Pack.


6. If the authorities approved extending the expiration date of a batch or you need to recall a batch, perform the relevant action on the batch under the Serialized Manufacturing application --> Products --> Batches tab. For more information, see Managing Batches.


7. Monitor the VRS responses in the Reports & Analysis application. For more information, see Viewing VRS Responses.
