Find and display result based on custom search (kiosk)


Hello Everyone, I'm a FileMaker newbie looking for some assistance on how to approach a project.

I'd like to use FileMaker to create an iPad kiosk used at tradeshows where a customer uses their first, last name and birthdate to retrieve a product ID associated with their record in the database. The kiosk must auto-refresh after a set amount of time as to not display previous customer data to the next customer in line.

How would I go about creating this?  Would I create two layouts - one for the search fields and one for the result, then use a script to automate the refresh, or is there a simpler approach? 

Thanks for any help you can offer!
