Before we proceed, it's highly important to understand the concept of Business Logic Layer in Logistics. It will help you to understand how the CargoNet Business Layer fits into your typical requirement, the components it contains, and the key benefits you get by our Business Logic Layer Customization.
CargoNet Business Logic Layer Components are typically used for Retrieval, Processing, Transformation and management of Application Data. CargoNet divides these components into two sections
- Business Workflow Components
- Business Entity Components
Cargo Net's Business Layer is about how your data is processed after taking input from you through the various Data Entry screens. You will be Entering data at the operational Level. Then CargoNet uses this data to perform a business process.
CargoNet by default has an internal workflow system which performs calculations like Container Loading plan, Volume Weight and Charge Weight calculations etc. This workflow also helps in separating Collect and prepaid shipments, channelize the Data accordingly for Local and Overseas Voucher generation.
There are a host of such Business Layer processes in CargoNet. After having implemented CargoNet we can customize the Data Flow and Calculations as per your requirements For example your company rule may say that before generating the House Bill of Lading from the Job it is mandatory job entry validated by the Operations Head and only after he gives a consent the House BL can be generated. Then ICT can incorporate that Business rule into your CargoNet Customization. This is one of the very simple Customization we are referring to. The other complex calculations may include customized calculations of Warehousing charges based on your criteria, Inventory Management Calculations etc. CargoNet Business workflow components define and coordinate such long running, multistep business processes, and can be customized easily to match your requirements.
