ERP/MRP Integration with Manufacturing

Business managers know that having an agile connection between the business system and business operational assets can play a major part in its success. Being able to reduce inventory and at the same time improve time to market will net significant improvement to the bottom line.

Automating the creation of shop floor work orders based upon orders received into the business can streamline one part of the process. These transactions between the business operational assets can extend way beyond just this use case.

Examples would be the creation of master data relating to manufacturing specifications and bills of material.

Other interfaces allowing an agile approach to the reporting on product tracking can be provided. This allows for integration with the broader supply
chain including consumption of raw materials, lot tracking and reporting on finished goods.

This data may be collected from a number of different sources, including specialist OEM automation solutions.

Efficientia Solutions has a history of providing functional, reliable, robust and information rich inerfaces based upon current technology like web services, XML, etc.


Manufacturing and processing are working in tighter timeframes in which to produce or process their products. These pressures require the ability to schedule production or processing in a logical manner.

Further, changes in production, machine breakdowns material shortage, etc can result in an extremely dynamic manufacturing plant. A scheduling system that can apply rules based upon constraints as well as real time feedback from the manufacturing floor provides significant benefits in hitting targets as well as maximising the running assets.

EfficientIA can work with manufacturers and processors including their incumbent ERP/MRP systems to significantly improve their capacity to schedule production and processing and dynamically adapt to change.


The first part of any project is to understand how your assets are running. A sound reporting strategy is required to provide meaningful data in context. This data can be collected using automated methods and supplemented with manual data. This allows for accurate and timely data which can be distilled into information that can be used to benefit the asset’s performance.

The collection of data for statistical process analysis can yield large ROI. Other reporting on energy and resource usage can act as prompts for positive operator behaviour.
