RFID Integration: Presently, if we explore JDE business functions (BSFNs) then we can find several ones with system code “D3N.” This is the dedicated system code that JDE has allocated for data collection using the dcLINK interface (from DSI). There are around 74 similar business functions available in JDE which are used in conjunction with the DSA software interface for integration with handhelds in warehouse process automation. Examples include Inventory Adjustments (ND3N4114), Purchase Order Receipts (ND3N4312) and Receipt Routing (ND3N4309).
Under system code “D3N,” there are several UDCs that need to be configured to activate versions of JDE programs used in integration with the dcLINK interface. All the required versions must be listed under these UDCs.
Going one step further, users can now interact with dcLINK via the VOICEActivator by using a standard, voice-enabled headset and microphone, which leaves their hands and eyes free to perform tasks. Embedded voice functionality gives dcLINK clients greater flexibility to use the most appropriate data collection method – bar code, RFID, and voice – for their business needs without installing additional applications.
Ownership of all the Business Functions starting with ND3N* and UDCs D3N/** belong to Oracle’s business partner DSI rather than directly to Oracle. Oracle includes these with the standard software so that DSI customers can download ESU fixes for these objects using our common ESU software update process. Oracle validated the dcLINK integration with EnterpriseOne as part of the Oracle Application Integration Initiative, which ensures standards-based integration between Oracle enterprise applications and partner solutions.
