Sescoi International has announced that version 3, of its WorkPLAN Enterprise ERP solution, has achieved certified integration with SAP applications.
The certification is also valid for the MyWorkPLAN V3 job management software solution, which is technically identical to WorkPLAN Enterprise V3.
Through this certified integration with SAP solutions, Sescoi will provide customers with the ability to exchange data between the WorkPLAN Enterprise ERP or MyWorkPLAN job management systems and SAP applications. Companies will then be able to benefit from the specialized manufacturing and project-management tools built into Sescoi's software, which are geared towards maximizing productivity and efficiency.
WorkPLAN Enterprise and MyWorkPLAN can receive jobs or task lists from SAP ERP, detailing parts and quantities of components to be produced. The software then manages the manufacturing process, including the production planning and scheduling, production performance monitoring, and recording the time spent on each task by each employee or machine in real time, using touch screens, bar-code readers or data-entry forms.
As production proceeds, data can be fed back into the SAP solution in the form of time taken, events completed and parts produced. Detail such as set-up times, processing times, teardown times, quantities completed, reworked or scrapped can be included in the information flow. Real-time recording of this information in WorkPLAN Enterprise helps keep the SAP solution-based system up to date, producing a dynamic exchange of data and safeguards the business information, so when it's presented to managers, it reflects the true and current status of manufacture.
Global and midsized companies using SAP solutions will benefit from this new integration, which will enable them to optimise the performance of specialised areas within their organizations, such as engineering departments or manufacturing units of moulds, dies or prototypes. Specifically, they'll benefit from the specialist manufacturing management expertise built into WorkPLAN Enterprise and MyWorkPLAN.
