The integration of Manufacturing Execution Systems with Enterprise Resource Planning systems or other business applications has become mission critical for manufacturing plant operations. It enables agile, short-term production planning and flexible update schedules. It also improves supply chain visibility and decision support by updating business applications with production responses in real time.
What is Enterprise Integration?
Enterprise Integration enables message exchange and automatic data synchronization between multiple businesses or plant applications. It is a commercial, off-the-shelf software that enables business and manufacturing systems to complement each other, in a loosely-coupled yet highly reliable manner.
Integration capabilities include XML messages, flat files, and database queries which go beyond Wonderware applications and allow for integration of multiple plant applications with ERP or other business and enterprise systems in a single solution.
Extensibility by custom code plug-ins is available to add Wonderware Enterprise Integrator connectivity to any software system or standardize multiple instances in multi-site integration scenarios.
