SAP Supply Chain Management- Device Controller Interface (AII-DC-RFID)

The purpose of this interface is to enable SAP partners to deliver RFID device controllers that are interoperable with SAP AII 2.1. This interface consists of an XML command message sent from SAP AII to the device controller and an XML notification message sent from the device controller to SAP AII.

SAP Auto-ID Infrastructure (SAP AII) enables backend systems like mySAP ERP and supply chain visibility tools like SAP Event Manager to leverage RFID technology. SAP AII connects the physical world, as observed by RFID device controllers, with the business-oriented document view of an ERP system. Thus, the RFID detection of pallets and cases at a gate in the warehouse can confirm that an expected inbound delivery is complete.
