I-Plan has been designed to work harmoniously with your existing ERP, fine planning and manufacturing systems. Its forecasting, optimization and planning functionality are always ready to support decision-makers and planners, thanks to the constant stream of detailed, current business data that it draws in. Our project specialists can deliver all the integrations to I-Plan that you need.
Data for accurate analysis and streamlined production
I-Plan shares data with a number of business and production systems in order to keep its model of the business current, to keep the underlying datasets updated and to expedite plans moving into production.
In particular, I-Plan links to sales or ERP systems to maintain its pricing model and to monitor the latest sales orders. These same systems are often used to give I-Plan detailed data on deliveries and current inventory levels.
I-Plan is also closely integrated with shop floor systems so that medium-term term production plans pass easily and dependably into fine-planning systems. Equally, changes to fine plans or problems with production are fed-back automatically into I-Plan so it is ready to re-optimize schedules whenever necessary.
Features and services to support efficient, rapid integration
From the outset, I-Plan has been designed to integrate with the widest range of sales, ERP, fine planning and manufacturing execution systems. It includes sophisticated interfaces and tools that greatly simplify integration to platforms including SAP, Oracle, IBM and Microsoft and a range of EAI (Enterprise Application Integration) products. It also supports simple EDI, Text or XML over all common integration technologies including web services, MSMQ, MQSeries, Oracle AQ, file and FTP.
