Topic: Record produced items without a work order?
Hello, I am new to FA, but like what I see so far.
Our company already has an MES system that it's customized to the product assembly process. We keep an inventory of finished goods, so there may not always be a work order to tie production to.
Is there any way to post a consumption transaction from another system, and have it perform all of the inventory transfers as if there was a work order? Or, is there a way to create a blanket work order and associate production to it?
Other commercial ERP/MRP systems I've used have a 'watchdog' directory where you dump files in a certain format. The software polls the directory at a specified interval, picks up the files, and processes the parts produced. I don't think FA has anything like that, but I would also be willing to write an interface that calls FA functions directly.
Thanks in advance,
