Serialization – Track & Trace

Serialization – Track & Trace

Making Global Serialization a Reality

SAP® provides the world’s leading platform for enabling real world visibility of your supply chain. M10TEK consultants deliver unmatched experience and subject matter expertise in these and many other SAP solutions. SAP has extended its ERP solution with a growing suite of powerful Supply Chain Management (SCM) products.

The industry solutions and components that form the backbone of mass serialization are:

  • SAP’s Flagship Auto-ID Technology (AIT) platform, the SAP Auto-ID Enterprise (AIE), which includes:
    • the Auto-ID Infrastructure (AII),
    • Object Event repository (OER),
    • out-of-the-box scenarios on Process Integration (PI), and BI content for reporting and analytics.

Real-world mobile RF and scanning technologies (barcode and RFID) are integrated into SAP through the above solutions.

  • SAP’s implementation of the DoD specific IUID solution can be implemented with SAP AIE (Auto Identification Enterprise) and complementary modules in SAP’s Enhancement Package 3 and above for SAP ERP.
  • SAP Extended Warehouse Management (EWM) adds serial number integration to its truly distributed warehouse management solution.
  • ATTP is a pharmaceutical specific solution that addresses the regulatory requirements for Serialized Track & Trace. It is designed and built specifically to address the expected data volumes, data query and required regulatory reporting.

At M10TEK, our Serialization experts recommend a straightforward approach to Serialization:

  • First, we evaluate your business strategy to determine pain points, optimizations, cost savings, quality improvements and revenue drivers as they relate to serialization.
  • Second, we take a deep dive through each high-level process, step-by-step, evaluating business best practices and making decisions that best align with your business needs and long-term strategy.
  • Third, we consider how M10TEK can leverage its vast track & trace experience, best practices, preconfigured SAP certified industry solutions and M10TEK-built industry specific solutions to drive an end-to-end solution.
  • Finally, we consider the integration points required to support a global or regional serialization solution and the benefits with native integration to SAP and an open scalable architecture that will enable you to leverage this solution with multiple ERP and Warehouse Management solutions, both internally and externally with partners and customers.

  • Hi-Tech Electronics
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Food and Beverage
  • Sporting Equipment
  • Soft Goods (Fashion, Apparel, Footwear)
  • Consumer Goods
