Purpose
The SAP Auto-ID Infrastructure provides a stand-alone deployment option with which customers can execute an outbound process that does not require a connection to any external system such as an R/3 or ERP system.
  The stand-alone deployment option of SAP AII 2.1 enables customers to perform basic slap& ship outbound processing whilst providing the platform to migrate to a solution that is integrated with a backend ERP.

Stand-Alone Outbound Processing
Outbound processing with the stand-alone AII 2.1 provides users with the ability to execute the process sequence: tag commissioning (to write and validate written tags), packing and loading.
The following general process execution variants are available in this scenario:

– Tag Commissioning:
The writing of blank/ new tags using either a mobile or desktop UI

– Packing:
Using a fixed packing reader and a desktop UI
Using a mobile device and UI

  – Loading:
Using a fixed packing reader and a desktop UI

The following diagram gives a pictorial description of the entire Stand-Alone Outbound process.
