A new flow for the handheld device has been released with KB article: 3148600. This flow enables the user to register the finished good serial number when reporting as finished in production. This flow is targeting a process where the finished good serial number is generated under the following conditions:
- It is assigned by the system at the time when the production or batch order is created.
- It is configured to be unique per one single unit of the production order. If, for example, a production order of five pieces is created, five unique serial numbers are created.
Configuration of the flow
This section provides information about how the flow is configured.
Create a new Mobile device menu item, and name it, for example, Register serial number. In the field Work creation process select Register report as finished by serial number.
The menu item can be added to a menu, for example, the Production menu, as shown below.
