This section provides an overview of how to configure and manage the Serialized Logistics application. The Serialized Logistics application supports companies in carrying out transfer, verification, and other logistics-related activities in their warehouses and reporting these activities to the market (when applicable).


The workflows below 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


Transfers and Reports to BPOM



Before You Begin


Make sure that:

  • You have added mobile users to your tenant. For more information, see Managing Users of a Tenant.
  • You have configured the BPOM channels you need. For more information on the channel, see BPOM.


For the BPOM channel, specify the type of the shipping locations (warehouse or client) and import them to the Serialized Logistics application. The imported shipping locations are available under the Site management --> Warehouses or Site management --> Clients tab, respectively.


Procedure


1. (Optional) Set the default channel under the Serialized Logistics application --> Settings tab. For more information, see Settings.


2. Configure the site-related aspects.


OptionAction
Warehouses

Configure warehouses where the scanning activities will be performed. Specify the name, address, country, assign the BPOM channel as the regulatory channel. Define whether the warehouse is involved in manufacturing or distribution activities. For a manufacturing site, you can activate commissioning while shipping.


Optionally, assign devices to the warehouses by giving their Universally Unique Identifier (UUID). Only the given device can be used in the warehouse.


Note: The BPOM shipping locations specified as warehouses on the BPOM channel settings page are automatically imported and are available in the list. The configuration form is prefilled with the existing data and the application displays the text Imported through BPOM channel under the warehouse name in the list.

Operators

Assign operators to the warehouses and specify privileges for them, that is, what activities they can perform.


Optionally, assign devices to the operators by giving their Universally Unique Identifier (UUID). The operators can use only the given device for scanning.

Clients

Specify the clients to which shipping is allowed (outbound external activities only).


Note: The BPOM shipping locations specified as clients on the BPOM channel settings page are automatically imported and are available in the list. The configuration form is prefilled with the existing data and the application displays the text Imported through BPOM channel under the client name in the list.


For more information, see Managing Warehouses, Managing Operators, and Managing Clients.


3. After the site is configured, the operators can perform the transfer activities in the warehouses by using Movilitas Mobile.


In this use case, they will perform the following actions:

  • Ship products
  • Receive products


Note: For manufacturer sites, it is also possible to commission the items while shipping to accelerate serialization and logistics activities. The setting can be activated or deactivated on the warehouse level and it requires administrator rights. The setting does not bring extra UI functions for the user in the mobile application who wants to ship. However, the application executes additional tasks and reports in the background.


For more information, see Movilitas Mobile for Serialized Logistics.


4. Monitor the transfers. For more information on the transfers, see Viewing Inbound Transfers and Viewing Outbound Transfers.


5. Check the BPOM logs and make sure that the activities in your warehouse are successful. For more information, see Configuring BPOM Channel, Viewing BPOM Logs, and Importing Shipping Locations.


6. (Optional) Open the Serialized Manufacturing application and go to the SN/SSCC pool tab. Track the SSCC or pack history. For more information, see Viewing the SSCC History (Serialized Manufacturing application) and Viewing the Pack History (Serialized Manufacturing application).


Note: Only applicable to products that were produced by this tenant.


7. (Optional) View the batch data and the pack status summary for the batch. For more information, see Managing Batches.

Verifying Items against SAP ATTP and Requesting Product Information



Before You Begin


Make sure that:

  • You have added mobile users to your tenant. For more information, see Managing Users of a Tenant.
  • You or your company has prepared a GS1 Digital Link Resolver Server to serve electronic content requests from Movilitas.Cloud. The server is an external component that you cannot control in Movilitas.Cloud. You can only set the server URL in Movilitas.Cloud and the Serialized Logistics application connects to this server when an operator will request electronic content in the warehouse.
  • You have configured the SAP ATTP channel. For more information on the channel, see SAP ATTP.


Procedure


1. (Optional) Set the default channel and provide the GS1 Digital Link Resolver Server URL under the Serialized Logistics application --> Settings tab. For more information, see Settings.


2. Configure the site-related aspects.


OptionAction
WarehousesConfigure warehouses where the scanning activities will be performed. Specify the name, address, country, GLN, and assign the SAP ATTP channel as the business channel. Select Distributor for the role.
