Mobile Supply Chain Applications Overview

This chapter covers the following topics:

Overview of Mobile Supply Chain Applications

The demand for accurate, real-time information throughout the supply chain has created mobile computing for manufacturing. Oracle Mobile Supply Chain Applications supports the interface of a mobile client device with a networked computer system. This application provides the ability to perform shop floor and warehouse transactions from any location in a facility using wireless radio frequency devices that can be hand-held, wearable, ring scanner systems, and lift truck mounted. You can perform data entry functions both manually and with a bar code scanner.

Default values enable ease of use and accuracy and while performing supply chain and shop floor transactions. Transactions entered through mobile applications can be processed either immediately (on-line transactions) or asynchronously.

As shown in this illustration, Oracle's Internet Computing Architecture supports mobile Internet devices by providing a user interface for wireless devices that support a Telnet client.
