Our software solution [FP]-LIMS offers a variety of interfaces. The interfaces of the [FP]-LIMS software are universal and thus ensure easy and fast integration of your measurement and ERP systems in order to design workflows more efficiently and minimize errors. Our software comes with over 100 pre-configured interfaces. The integrated device manager is designed for any number of additional interfaces. Numerous drivers for the instrumental analysis of various instrument manufacturers allow the configuration of any number of serial or even network communication interfaces. This allows the structured merging of analysis data in numerous formats (such as XLS, XML, CSV, and many more) individually, in groups or manually. The communication between server and client takes place via the most common network protocol TCP/IP.
With the stand-alone configuration of the module, a highly economical administration of raw materials, recipes, specifications, and analysis results can already be realized. The module can be operated with interfaces to external raw material databases as well as to ERP/PCS systems. In order to optimize internal processes and procedures, cooperation with other [FP]-LIMS modules is also possible. The extension possibilities for an overall configuration in the area of quality assurance are on the one hand the administration of test or production orders and on the other hand the recording of incoming goods and the writing of certificates.
Interfaces to ERP/PP systems and SAP S/4HANA®
The [FP]-LIMS software also has extensive open interfaces to higher-level ERP/PCS systems. Thus, all core areas of your company can be extended and combined in a holistic approach.
The standard interface (IDI) to ERP systems, such as SAP S/4HANA®, serves the administration of master data as well as the operative processing of inspection or production orders. Orders can thus be easily imported from the ERP or SAP S/4HANA®, checked in the subsystem, and then validated. The results, including observations, recommendations, and specifically documented corrections, are automatically reported back to the higher-level ERP or SAP S/4HANA® at the end of the audit. Subsequently, the usage decisions of the inspection lots, for example, can be processed centrally.
