As a system administrator, you can configure integration between Plant Applications and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems to automatically import the following records from the ERP systems to the Plant Applications database:
  • Work orders
  • Process orders
  • Materials
  • Material Lot
  • Outside Processing (OSP)
This integration is implemented by means of an integration database and integration services.
  • The integration database: Stores information necessary for the integration, such as messages that contain work orders, process orders, and materials that are sent by ERP systems.
  • The integration services: Include the ERP Scheduler service, ERP Transformation service, and ERP Import service, which convert the work orders, process orders, and materials into a JSON file (as needed), import them into Plant Applications, and maintain status information in the integration database.
