Systems integration for a manufacturing firm.
A medium-sized precision engineering firm in country Victoria, wanted their live customer and inventory data from MYOB, available in the user-interface of their manufacturing execution system (MES).
Little Systems performed information systems consulting to complete this section of the MES work.
When the MYOB API was new (version 1), Little Systems constructed a simple PHP script for Windows/IIS to render MYOB data as XML. This made the MYOB data available via a URL on the internal network (intranet).
Little Systems then integrated the data with the MES. The MES was a customised Open Source Perl web application on Linux. Little Systems developed a Perl script to read the MYOB data as XML and to populate the local PostgreSQL database with MYOB customer and inventory data. The script was automated to run periodically. Little Systems then integrated the data in PostgreSQL with the Open Source web application.
Live customer and inventory data from MYOB, was made available in the user-interface of the web-based manufacturing execution system (MES).
Little Systems also provided additional related consulting, to create custom and printable job instruction sheets (JIS) for the manufacturing floor.
Little Systems is available for consulting. See also Services.
Little Systems can also provide consulting for an Open Source manufacturing execution system (MES) for small-to-medium sized manufacturing firms.
