RFSMART is developed using advanced, low-overhead .NET tools and technologies. RFSMART operates with an unparalled level of efficiency that provides important benefits to our customers. 1) rfsmart delivers great scalability with the ability to support more users without the need to buy additional ADC servers and the accompanying licensing/maintenance costs. 2) a single installation of rfsmart can support multiple facilities and enterprise operating environments (production, test, etc.). 3)RF users experience a quicker, more reliable system response, increasing their productivity. They also access the most up-to-date enterprise data for validation and inquiries, minimizing the potential for errors. 4)RFSMART has fewer points of potential failure than thick-client applications, resulting in more reliable, & easier to manage applications. RFSMART is less expensive to own. RFSMART uses the most efficient, scalable and reliable integration methods. For JD Edwards rfsmart leverages a certified XML interface that directly calls JDE Master Business Functions. In each instance, rfsmart takes advantage of the unique strengths and processes of the ERP system to provide seamless interoperability and the highest levels of data collection performance. What users actually see on the RF device, and how the workflow operates, is dependent upon the ERP system and the customer’s unique business processes. The rfsmart Foundation Basic Operation Overview: Upon log-in to rfsmart, end users are connected through the Foundation to the ERP server via a Web browser or VT220 Telnet client. At that instant, the Foundation begins a multi-threaded session for that user and presents him/her with the correct interface model (screen size and client type), the appropriate language for the person, and a personalized menu that keeps workers focused on their assigned (or permitted) tasks. Choosing a task from the menu,rfsmart displays the screens and prompts needed for the correct completion of the transaction. As data is collected — via scanning barcodes or reading RFID tags — rfsmart validates data upon entry in real-time (not after transaction submission) to ensure accuracy and virtually eliminate the need to reperform transactions. Any data that is not required or that can be defaulted is not presented,thereby minimizing data input requirements and the number of screens shown. As a result, accuracy and productivity increase. When all required data is collected and validated, a Foundation class generates and transmits the transaction to the Foundation Web Service. The Foundation Web Service immediately sends the transaction to both: - the ERP Communication Manager for real-time submission to the ERP system, and - the RF transaction history file where the data is available for multiple reports and inquiries. Users receive a transaction confirmation as soon as the ERP system is updated.
