Product Master Maintenance   

This function enables the setup of Product definitions (aka Item # or Part #) for RFID inventory management and as the base Item foundation for Asset management. For example; an Item that is manufactured, resold or consumed. For Manufacturers Products can represent Raw Material, WIP or Finished Goods.

The term GTIN (Global Trade Item Number) is used for the unique identification of trade items worldwide within the GS1 System. If you are a manufacturer, distributor, retailer or anywhere else in the supply chain, you would already be using this GTIN schema as part of Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN). The Electronic Product Code (EPC) supports a number of object schema's one of the most popular being the serialized GTIN which represents an instance of a given tagged trade item in the supply chain. This would typically be a case, carton, pallet, etc.

In the TagNet system the GTIN is synonymous with a Product, Item or Part master identifier. 

When an RFID tag is read within a TagNet portal where it references that GTIN, either by EPC encoding or direct mapping, the associated GTIN information (up to 190 attributes) can be made available for display or filtering. Those customers that are not using TagNet as part of an EPC compliancy solution, such as a closed loop object tracking or asset management system, will only need to use specific fields within the GTIN Product Master to identify their objects.

Prerequisite tables to setup before adding a Product/Item profile are as follows:

1.Create a default Category Code

2.Create a default Inventory Type

Position to

The Global Trade Item Number as assigned. Note: this is the primary object Identifier and can be any internally assigned Product number up to 14 characters long.
