Introduction

Nedap Harmony provides two additional mechanisms for data exchange: Master Data and Documents.

  • Master Data consists of (near) static information related to products, locations and parties. Master Data is typically synchronised to Harmony on a regular basis, it is not created inside Harmony.
  • Documents documents contain information that is used in both Applications and Hooks. It is typical for documents to be both synchronised to Harmony and being created in Harmony.

Example

Let's consider a typical example RFID application: box-level shipment verification.

  1. Product information is loaded in Harmony via the Master Data API. This is a description of items, including an image. This happens at midnight, either with an external caller or a Hook.
  2. The shipment reference is loaded in Harmony via the Documents API. This is a list of expected products and quantities.
  3. An Application will be developed that compares the shipment reference (Document) versus the RFID items. When the user verified the shipment, a new Document is created that contains the result of the shipment verification.
  4. With a daily running Hook, all newly created Documents are uploaded to an external SFTP server.
