To help automate and streamline supply chain and manufacturing processes, NCR Corporation has integrated its radio frequency identification software solution, NCR TransitionWorks for RFID and Mobility, with the E-Business Suite from Oracle.
The action enables real-time capture and monitoring of inventory for supply chain and manufacturing processes. It allows Oracle E-Business Suite customers to deploy autonomous inventory reporting processes for picking, staging and shipping, that previously required human intervention.
With the solution, Oracle customers can augment current implementations of the suite with updated, streamlined business processes. For example, if a warehouse forklift driver is directed to pick up a certain order, line items are automatically issued to that order as the RFID-enabled forklift retrieves pallets and moves them to a staging area or trailer. Conveyors can also be equipped with RFID readers, sensors and programmable logic controllers, allowing cases to be identified regardless of orientation and diverted down the correct lane.
