11.5.10

RFID-Initiated Shipping & Receiving
Built-in support for this emerging technology
RFID Middleware (Oracle AS) (3) Interface to readers, clean and filter data, then pass IDs to application

(1) Load of pallets and / or cartons with RFID tags on each

(2) Drive load through RFID Reader in Receiving Dock
(5) Access associated source document, e.g. the PO’s ASN

RFID Event Processor

(4) Access objects associated with the ID's (e.g. LPN's on ASN) then raise correct Business Event
(6) Process the Business Event, e.g. Receipt of pallet or carton (7) Confirm success or failure, e.g. trigger green light or sound buzzer

Application APIs

(8) Putaway, rescan or divert material
