Rework Module for container management (aggregation and de-aggregation)
The EdgeTRAC Rework Module lets you manipulate the serial number hierarchy of serialized containers ad hoc, for post-batch completion rework in packaging and repackaging plants, distribution centers and downstream distribution facilities. Container management and rework is needed for activities such as QA sampling, management of damaged product, and packing in advance of customer order fulfillment.
For de-aggregation, EdgeTRAC Rework allows you to remove cases from pallets, bundles from cases, individual items from bundles, etc. You can choose to de-aggregate individual child serial numbers, or all child serial numbers, from a parent serial number. EdgeTRAC deactivates parent container serial numbers as appropriate, for example when removing items from a parent SGTIN full case.
For aggregation, EdgeTRAC Rework allows you to add cases to pallets, bundles to cases, individual items to bundles or cases, etc. You can aggregate product into existing serialized containers or use EdgeTRAC to create new parent serialized containers. EdgeTRAC interfaces with your serial number management system to commission and print SSCC or SGTIN serialized parent container labels as needed.
EdgeTRAC interfaces with your serial number management system to maintain the container serial number hierarchies, and to verify that the serial numbers are valid and in an appropriate status and configuration to be reworked.
