ERP Integrations

PlanetTogether is pre-integrated with most common ERP systems and can be integrated into any system with an open database or API or can export data.

There are three common “levels” of integration. The first level is the simplest, with the least data required. The other levels have added capabilities and therefore require more data.

These are the common levels:

  1. Scheduling with Capacity Constraints
    • The ERP generates Work Orders and Planned Orders
    • PlanetTogether imports this data for scheduling/optimization
    • PlanetTogether pushes schedule dates and resources back to the ERP
    • Data Imported from the ERP to PlanetTogether:
      • Plants
      • Work Centers
      • Machines
      • Work Order Headers
      • Work Order Operations
      • Planned Order Headers
      • Planned Order Operations
    • Data published from PlanetTogether to the ERP:
      • Work Order Header Scheduled Start Date, Scheduled End Date, and Firm Status (if Firming in PlanetTogether)
      • Work Order Detail Scheduled Start Date, Scheduled End Date, and Scheduled Machine
      • Planned Order Header Scheduled Start Date and Scheduled End Date
      • Planned Order Detail Scheduled Start Date, Scheduled End Date, and Scheduled Machine
  2. Add Material Constraints
    • Everything included in Level 1
    • PlanetTogether pulls Inventory, Purchase Orders, and Bill-of-Material data
    • PlanetTogether coordinates Material Constraints and prevents activities from scheduling before constrained material is ready
    • Additional Data Imported from the ERP to PlanetTogether:
      • Warehouses
      • Items
      • Inventories
      • Purchase Order Headers, lines, and shipments
      • Work Order Material Requirements
      • Work Order Products
      • Planned Order Material Requirements
      • Planned Order Products
      • Transfer Order Headers
      • Transfer Order Details
    • Additional data published from PlanetTogether to the ERP
      • None
  3. Add Production Planning
    • Everything included in Levels 1 and 2
    • Import Sales Orders, Forecasts and inventory replenishment controls
    • Run MPS/MRP to generate Planned Orders and Planned Purchases
    • Additional Data imported from the ERP to PlanetTogether:
      • Sales Orders
      • Forecasts
      • Replenishment Control parameters (safety stock, min/max, buffers, batching rules, etc.)
      • Item Routings
      • Item Bills of Material
    • Additional data published from PlanetTogether to the ERP
      • Planned Order Headers (to create Planned Orders in the ERP based on what was created by PlanetTogether MPS/MRP)
