E1: 46L: License Plate Processing within Warehouse Management (Doc ID 2214704.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 02, 2019

Prior to 8.11 SP1, EnterpriseOne applications were using the storage unit number functionality that allowed the tracking of an item through the warehouse. For more details, see "License Plate Control in Warehouse Management for Releases XE to 8.10" (Doc ID 625603.1). After 8.11 SP1, EnterpriseOne introduced the license plate enhancement and retired the unit storage number functionality.

This new License Plate is functionality introduced in the EnterpriseOne 8.11 SP1 release allows customers to be able to receive or to build a pallet as unique logistic unit. The pallet is given its own identity in the form of a license plate. Having attached a license plate to a pallet, the operator uses a scanner device to scan the plate with all its information or an RFID tag that stores an Electronic Product Code (EPC). The operator can also scan a case and input the number of cases or items on the pallet at receipt time and manually build the pallet structure. The system stores the LP information as well as information regarding each case or each Item inside the License plate, and performs all the WMS movements and storing considering the pallet dimensions. The source of a license plate number can be a supplier's ASN that contains LPNs for identifying item receipts; they can be manually created by the user, generated by the system from a user-defined formula or from a user-defined EPC definition. The License Plate Number (LPN) contains a unique serial number against which the system holds all pallet or item details together with the ongoing history of the pallet or item.

Note: Advanced Warehousing MUST be activated in order to use License Plate functionality.

The License Plate Number (LPN) is usually associated with a container such as a pallet or carton, and it identifies attributes such as item number, quantity and receipt date or even a hierarchy of license plates. The system provides the ability to create multi-level parent child relationships with the license plates and to mix more than one Item in the same license plate. The system processes License Plate within most of the following transactions:

  • Inventory Transactions
  • Warehouse Transactions
  • Transportation Transactions
  • Sales Order Processing Transactions
  • Purchasing Transactions
  • Manufacturing Transactions
