This section covers those items that apply across the different sections of the software.
The Inbound function is used to gather information about the material coming in from DLA, commercial vendors, and local supply. These items are normally labeled with military shipping labels (MSLs) and/or DD 1348s. The shipments are sometimes accompanied by radio frequency (RF) tags.
Data is entered for each shipment at the shipping unit level. In addition, you can also enter line item data, make notes and discrepancies, and generate activity reports. This section will show you how to process inbound material on the PC.
Once material is received, you can then prepare it for local distribuiton via the Dispatch function. You create Tally Sheets that list all of the material to be delivered to or picked up by a local unit. The Tally Sheets can then be signed digitally (using the handheld) or manually.
This section will show you how to prepare material for local delivery on the PC.
Material can also be prepared for shipment. This includes preparing the dcoumentation for the shipping units, including MSLs, DD1348s, and TCMD. In addition, RF Tags can be written and HAZMAT documentation can be created. The shipment units can be sent to a shipping site or consolidated into a Convoy for delivery. (The Convoy functions are like Dispatch in that it's Tally Sheet based, but it's not a local delivery.)
This section will show you how to create the documentation for shipping units, both multi-packs and containers, and how to create and manage Convoy operations on the PC.
This section will show you how to create reports that show what has been done by the users. It has pre-set reports for Daily, weekly, and monthly use as well as a custom feature that allows more control over what is reported on. There is also a report that shows whatb transactions have been sent. Reports are only available on the PC.
This section will show you how to configure AMS-TAC to your own needs. The first video covers all of the setup items while the following reports are more specific in the items covered. These items are specific to the PC.
This section will show you how to perform the various AMS-TAC fuicntions on the handheld. As much as possible, the features included on the handheld are the same as those on the PC. (The main differences are related to presentation as the screen is significantly smaller on the handheld.) The handheld also allows you to scan barcodes from multiple sources such as MSLs, DD1348s, tracking number labels, and CAC. All data is transferred to the PC where it is merged with the rest of the data.
These videos were created using the CK71 handheld; other Honeywell (Intermec) handhelds, e.g., the CK61 and CN3, will be similar.
