BOM Transfer

Requirements Overview

Typically an electronic data interchange (EDI) is a direct link between 2 systems, transferring data concurrently via an automated link, or sometimes via a manual intervention request. However, there are occasions when an EDI can be written to transfer data across multiple systems, ensuring fluid and consistent data transfer. A typical EDI application which uses a web-based portal to allow the customer to access feedback and logs is outlined below. This was a data transfer between the following applications, Bill of Materials (BOM) management software and a manufacturing management system:

  • Omnify – Bill of Materials Management Software
  • 123insight  – MRP/ERP Software

This EDI has manual intervention, which means the customer is able to specify when a transfer takes place from the BOM management software, and view logs about what information has been transferred.

Solution

The EDI transfers data from the BOM software directly into the MRP/ERP software, ensuring data is consistent and correctly revised. The following information is transferred across the systems:

  • BOM information from Omnify into 123insight

    • New parts are automatically created in 123insight, including all child parts and routings

    • Works Orders that need to be rescheduled will be highlighted to the customer should this be required

    • A Purchase Order report is generated consisting of any orders that have been affect by changes in BOM structure

  • Sales order from Omnify created as Works Orders in 123insight

  • Export sales order information from 123insight into bespoke Delivery Database

Outcome

This EDI has been used for a number of years and has resulted in consistent data across all platforms and granted the customer greater levels of traceability and improved response times to rapidly changing product requirements.
