July 2018 Functionality Updates

As part of our continued product investment, we are pleased to announce some updates available within the Eagle product set;

Serialized Unit Track and Build

New Eagle Serialized Unit functionality can be used to easily create, manage, and transact complex packaging structures that are up to five levels deep (Pallet > Case > Carton > Box > Item).

Simple site-specific setups can be used to configure available Unit levels to match local requirements.  Unit labels may be printed for any level in the structure to provide highly detailed content visibility.  During Unit Build items and quantities are validated in real-time against Preshipper or Shipper requirements.  To maximize efficiency, Unit Build can support multiple simultaneous users per Preshipper or Shipper.  Serialized Units are fully compatible with existing Eagle Pallet/License Plate transactions to support streamlined inquiry and inventory movement.  Once built, Eagle Serialized Units can be easily shipped against Sales Orders, Scheduled Orders, or Distribution Orders.  For example, Units can be directly scanned into the Eagle Load Truck ‘LTR’ transaction or staged for shipment using RF Move Stage Pallet ‘MSP’ and subsequently processed through ‘LTR’ to link the Serialized Unit to a Preshipper or Shipper.

Continuous Transaction Processor (CTP) Update – WOI

Eagle’s Continuous Transaction Processor (CTP) is constantly adding functionality to meet customer requirements.  Using the underlying Eagle control file (rfvaluesx) features, Work Order Issue (WOI) has joined the robust repetitive/discrete/production and labor reporting as well as container create transaction library.  In addition, specific cost center/account/sub account control has been added to applicable transactions.  Logging, automatic start/stop scripts, and email notification functionality has been enhanced to allow for hands off, streamlined transaction processing.

Due to its large transaction library and ease of implementation, CTP is now in use at manufacturing sites around the globe.  Usage has expanded from automotive sites that want earn-a-label processes integrated with existing shop floor equipment to industrial sites that use CTP to collect data from IIoT sources such as RFID. Transactions such as backflush with container create and inventory license plate transfer are common in many implementations.  The configurable transaction input features allows for quick implementation.  The net result is that Eagle customers gain real-time data visibility in QAD with a maximum reliability, flexible CTP solution.
