THE MES TO SAP INTEGRATION PROBLEM
Home grown and commercial Manufacturing Execution Systems (MESs) come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes and successfully connecting them to your SAP system can be a difficult, intimidating, expensive and risky prospect. How do you do this without depending on Corporate IT and without writing custom code or modifying your SAP system? Previous approaches had significant drawbacks:
- They did not use standards like ISA-95 / B2MML.
- They required custom coding.
- They were implemented as point-to-point interfaces.
- They were difficult to migrate during SAP upgrades.
- They were not SAP certified.
- They required SAP ABAP programming.
THE MES TO SAP INTEGRATION SOLUTION
The NLINK MES to SAP Solution provides real-time bi-directional connectivity between any compliant MES and SAP via a set of pre-built B2MML-based SAP interfaces.
Many different commercial and home grown MESs have been successfully connected to SAP by Junot Systems, SIs and End Customers alike.
Connect any MES that supports the ISA-95 / B2MML standard over a web services interface. Junot Systems has pre-built a set of SAP transactions built on B2MML and covering a number of MES functions.
Simply select the B2MML interfaces that your project needs to support and let the NLINK MES to SAP Solution take care of communicating with SAP.
