Web Service Enables Simple Sharing of Job Information with ERP and MES Software

October 1, 2015

Wintriss Controls Group has introduced a new data-sharing capability for its ShopFloorConnect software for tracking overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) and downtime. The new application program interface (API) is a SOAP 1.2-based web service that automates job-queue management and data transfer between the scheduling functions of existing ERP/MES software and the ShopFloorConnect software/hardware. It allows ShopFloorConnect to gather information for the next job from the existing scheduling system and send it directly to the machine-mounted ShopFloorConnect Interface (SMI) controller. The end result is paperless management of the production schedule. As jobs finish, the API gives ShopFloorConnect the ability to report part counts back to the ERP/MES in real time.

ShopFloorConnect displays real-time status information for all of your machines on a PC or on a mobile-device web browser. It automatically generates and delivers reports showing OEE, production, downtime summaries and other information, and provides the vital link to real-time data missing from some ERP and MES systems.

ShopFloorConnect is a turnkey solution that is scalable, flexible and can be quickly implemented into any discrete manufacturing environment. It comes factory-configured to communicate directly over your LAN with the ShopFloorConnect machine interface, which can be installed on any machine.
