Operations in EZ-MES are defined by Step Definitions. The following figure shows how the Flow Definition is split into a number of operations: Flow Definition to receive Ham Bombos

Note the following:

  • For this 'Receive Ham Combos' Flow Definition two Step Definitions are used (Receive Combos and, Weigh and Serialize).
  • At the moment the last Step (Weigh and Serialize) is finished the Combos will automatically move to RMI (Raw Material Inventory).
  • The Step Definitions are linked to the Flow Definition. This makes it possible to reuse Step Definitions in different Flow Definition.
