Simplify RFID, UID, WAWF and Mil-Std-129R Labeling for DOD
Mil-Pac Technology’s industry-leading software for defense contractors makes shipping and invoicing quick and easy.
Defense contractors face many challenges in meeting DOD supply chain requirements for military standard labeling, Wide Area Workflow (WAWF), Unique Identification (UID) and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID). Mil-Pac simplifies these challenges by eliminating redundant data-entry, optimizing process flow and recycling existing data. Mil-Pac has been the industry leader in simplifying and streamlining supply chain compliance since 1982.
MIL-Comply is Mil-Pac’s fourth generation defense supply chain software for WAWF, UID, DOD RFID, Mil-Std-129 labeling and Mil-Std-2073 packaging. MIL-Comply is great for solving specific problems such as Mil-Std labeling, or as an integrated solution for submission of data to Wide Area Workflow (WAWF). Multiple users may share the data to perform the same tasks in parallel or collaborate by performing specific roles.
MIL-Comply software offers solutions to the following challenges in defense supply chain contracting:
Comply/Labeling solves the challenges created by Mil-Std-129 Revision R’s 2D bar code symbols (PDF417) now included on both unit and exterior containers. The bar coded Serial Number List, required for containers with more than five items, is generated automatically. MIL-Comply takes the guesswork out of constructing these complicated PDF417 data structures.
Shipments created in Comply/Shipper for WAWF submission include about ninety-five percent of the data required for labeling. Just add the rest (transportation priority, preservation date, shelf life, etc) and you are done. Shipment data that is managed by your business systems may be imported instead of being entered manually.
Comply/Labeling automatically organizes RFID data as you print labels. UID data is collected and associated with Cases (exterior containers) and Case tags with pallets tags. Submitting to WAWF is reduced to a couple of mouse clicks.
Comply/RFID Manager allows you to review and adjust the data that is collected automatically during labeling. The shipment configuration can be printed, reviewed and adjusted offline, then submitted to WAWF electronically with a few clicks. This is much easier and less worrisome than trying to do it on the WAWF website all the while hoping your connection stays alive. Comply/RFID Manager also works with pre-encoded tags.
- Unit Container Label in-the-clear (serial number component)
- Unit Container PDF417 (2D) symbol encoding
- Exterior Container Label (serial number in-the-clear)
- Exterior Container PDF417 (2D) symbol encoding
- WAWF Receiving Report line item section
- WAWF RFID container contents
With MIL-Comply UID automation, each UII is entered only once, and using methods that are simple and ensure accuracy. This is true even with Embedded UIDs, which may be imported along with End-Items via cut-and-paste, CSV or M12 file.
MIL-Comply speeds and simplifies UID submission to WAWF.
Comply/Labeling prints Mil-Std-129 container labels with 2D PDF417 symbols compliant with Revision R. It correlates RFID and UID data for WAWF submission. It also prints simple Mil-Std-130 part mark labels.
Comply/RFID Manager allows you to reorganize RFID and UID data and submit to WAWF, whether with a Receiving Report or later as a Pack Update.
Comply/Shipper submits your UID data, including embedded items to WAWF.
Comply/UID Manager lets you submit embedded UIDs directly to the UID Registry.
Automate Mil-Std-129 labeling by preparing shipments for WAWF in Comply/Shipper. Ninety percent of the data for labeling is on the Receiving Report, so not only are you almost done, but the data is guaranteed to match. You can also start by labeling your shipment, then automatically create a WAWF Receiving Report and Invoice. RFID data collected by Comply/Labeling may be uploaded with Receiving Reports or as a Pack Update follow-up.
Use MIL-Comply to organize all of this data offline, print load configuration reports for review, then submit to WAWF with just a few mouse clicks.
DLA DIBBS electronic (EDI) purchase orders generally include Mil-Std-2073 packaging requirements. Comply/Shipper stores the packaging codes as it converts EDI POs into WAWF invoices. Comply/Pack2073 can then automatically break down the codes to generate a packaging worksheet for the shipment.
DLA electronic purchase order data may also be used to drive labeling, helping to ensure absolute accuracy while reducing the time to process the order. Mil-Std-2073 packaging codes are often included in the purchase order. Those can be used by Comply/Pack to generate a packaging breakdown worksheet to guide packaging.
