Syncs Integration of ERP to PLM
Raleigh, North Carolina, 5 November 2014- KPIT, a Platinum level member in Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), announced the release of iLinksm PLM Adapter for Oracle JD Edwards. KPIT's iLink adapter connects leading PLM Applications to Oracle JD Edwards facilitating to-and-from information flow between the ERP and the PLM applications. KPIT's iLink adapter masters the complex needs for integrating JD Edwards with any Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) system, and has built-in error handling logic that draws on standard Oracle JD Edwards Applications APIs ensuring compatibility with future upgrades.
iLink provides a packaged implementation that improves quality and reduces overall costs. Unlike other integration approaches, with iLink an enterprise needs just one integration irrespective of the number of PLM systems it has. Furthermore, iLink integrates with JD Edwards irrespective of its release version and provides equal support for single-site PLM installations with Multi-Branch Oracle installations or multiple PLM environments with a single instance of Oracle JD Edwards.
KPIT iLink works with all PLM systems and Oracle EBS and JDE. PLM and Enterprise Resource Planning systems are IT foundation blocks for all manufacturers. Having the two systems out of sync consumes both time and resources, leading to incorrect parts, incorrect versions, and inaccurate inventory and stock. The iLink PLM Adaptor for ERP solves the problem using a proven, economical approach. KPIT understands the unique industry issues involved, and has created a solution that allows the ERP to understand and process PLM data, notifying of all issues in real time to streamline operations.
Commenting on the launch, Baljeet ChhazalGlobal Head, Oracle Business, KPIT, said, "Introducing iLink is in line with KPIT's vision of developing products and solutions that enable our customers to achieve optimal performance and enhance the returns on their technology investments."
"With iLink, KPIT offers its customers a bi-directional, PLM agnostic JD Edwards and E-Business Suite adapter with powerful and user-friendly dynamic mapping capability. iLink leverages integration best practices to simplify the integration process between your ERP system and PLM system thereby providing you real-time product data to achieve and ensure accurate product data, product planning, and forecasting." David Bartlett, AVP R&D, Delivery.
