The Power of ERP and MES Integration in Manufacturing Businesses
Enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems contain inventory and customer demand information and manufacturing execution systems (MES) control and report on manufacturing.
Integrating ERP and MES helps increase operational efficiency and allows manufacturing businesses become more responsive to changing demands. It could help increase overall equipment efficiency (OEE), reduce cycle time and provide management with greater visibility for more accurate decision making.
MES software AspectPL easily integrates with most ERP’s.
AspectPL integration is achieved quite easily with minimal involvement required from ERP vendors. AspectPL can configure data fields to link under different export/import scenarios from the ERP. Complicated scenarios such as large multi level BOMs, product dependencies, alternative routings, family and multiple classes of products are easily handled once setup.
AspectPL MES software can also handle varied production machines and assembly processes on manufacturing floors.
Below is a selection of common ERP’s that AspectPL integrates with:
SAP, SAP B1
Epicor 9, Epicor 10
Even if you run a different ERP AspectPL can probably integrate with it. Please contact us for more information.
