ERP Integration with PLM enables the exchange of application-independent pieces of data without manual intervention, thereby eliminating re-keying of data and errors that often lead to scrap, rework and delayed product releases and shipments.
There are various methods of exchanging information including the following:
- Database to Database
- API to API
- XML Import and Export
Most third party connectors utilize one of the above methods. As an implementation methodology, Essig PLM supports all three with its system integration methods.
