Most ERP systems are designed to a standard known as ISA-95 for the integration of enterprise (ERP) and control (MES) systems. AspectPL has a relational database that is structured according to the ISA-95 standard, the same as most ERP systems.

What this means is that AspectPL is speaking the same language as the ERP. This facilitates the data exchange between the ERP and MES. AspectPL can easily mirror your ERP system, receiving and sending data between the manufacturing floor and the ERP – without ongoing configuration or programming.

This enables AspectPL to monitor the actual ‘machine connected’ performance of your machines and send selected data like job progress and yield to the ERP in real time – effectively making the ERP ‘live’. Traditional SCADA or automation software cannot achieve this level of integration.
