MRP / ERP Integration

Overviewenterprise mrp logo 160 116 2

The Sequence MRPUltra AddOn can import Bill of Material (BoM), Routing, Operation, and Work Order information from a master system such as MRP / ERP or PLM. Typically run daily during off-peak hours as a scheduled task, The MRPUltra AddOn ensures that your work instructions stay synchronized with your front-office software.  

BoMs, Operations and Routings form the skeleton  on which your detailed work instructions can be authored. Leveraging the information in your MRP / ERP system, Sequence allows you to focus on capturing the specific details needed to execute each operation as opposed to authoring from a blank page.  BoM items can be managed by subassembly or by individual operation where they are consumed.
Using a scheduled task and the Sequence MRPUltra portal, up-to-date information can be imported into Sequence. This continuous feed enables master database changes to be automatically updated in Sequence and eliminates duplicate maintenance of data.
Sequence has been successfully integrated with SAP, Oracle, JD Edwards, Epicor Vantage, Epicor 9, Epicor 2000, Infor Visual Manufacturing, Infor Syteline, Baan, MAS200, MAS500, MS Dynamics (AX, GP, SA), ESS Finesse, and many other packages.

 Additional WebSequence Enterprise Capabilities When Sequence is Integrated with your MRP / ERP System

Operators can view instructions by work order, as well as collect data (see the data collection feature below), eliminating guesswork associated with who worked on a work order, which instruction was used, and any data collected.
When instructions are accessed via work order, WebSequence allows authorized personnel to issue a Redline change against that work order.  This Redline is immediately propagated through all work orders for the affected assembly and is presented to shop floor personnel as a pop-up notification when the affected instruction is reached.  The Redline remains in effect until the note is handled and the subassembly is republished. 
When instructions are accessed via work order, WebSequence allows authorized personnel to approve a one time Proceed with Noncompliance for a unique work order.  The Proceed with Noncompliance information becomes part of the permanent manufacturing history for the affected work order.
When products have multiple options, Sequence will automatically display to an operator the configuration-specific instructions for a given work order. This eliminates operator confusion by only showing the necessary instructions to execute a work order.  In addition, this automates the traceability associated with the variety of ways a configured product can be built.
For customers that deploy instructions by work order and need to maintain records from operators, Sequence allows the capture of information.  This can include electronic signatures by operator/supervisor or production data like serial numbers, oven temperatures, etc. Tolerances can be set for numeric inputs and used as either a trigger for information to be validated and reentered or to generate a nonconformance.  Data can then be used to provide an as-built record of production for specific products. See "Access Instructions by Work Order" for more detail.
When compatible tooling is connected to a PC’s USB port, the USB Input Tool is automatically recognized as an HID (Human Interface Device) keyboard device – a standard Windows® driver. No special software is required. A USB keyboard signal converter translates digital display values to keyboard signals. This enables the direct inputting of data into WebSequence. Data capture is much faster than manual entry. Additionally, reliability is increased because transcription errors are eliminated.
When instructions are accessed via work order, Sequence Enterprise allows modifications to be made to the affected work order without the loss of any previously captured data.  For example, should a part need to be reworked, the rework work instructions could be added to the work order detailing the complete manufacturing history while at the same time maintaining all previously captured signatures, data, etc.
