(506) Getting Started On EI for Non-Programmers
Limited Capacity filling up

Whether you are an I.T. Programmer/Developer or not, you should be aware of the useful functions that Enterprise Integrator offers – without doing any programming! Many organizations have talented technical or data-savvy individuals that are not computer programmers by trade, but could enhance their systems to benefit themselves, other users, and their company. Come and hear how your organization can benefit from the built-in functions you already own in Enterprise Integrator!

In this session, we will:

• Explain what Enterprise Integrator is, and what it can do.
• Discuss the skills required to use Enterprise Integrator.
• Demonstrate how to get started using Enterprise Integrator.

(509) Cool Things you can do with Subscriptions
Limited Capacity filling up

Subscriptions are not just email notifications. While subscriptions work great for email, you can do so much more. You can send text messages to your phone. You can call host programs, too. But the coolest thing you can do with subscriptions is to run system link requests. And NO RPG programming.

This session will show you how to create a template, copy and paste the system link request. You can even use substitution attributes within your request. As an added bonus, you will learn how to use notification history to check the status of your request, and debug the system link request.

(512) User Exits - Auto IP Real World Use Case
Limited Capacity seats available

Join Barry-Wehmiller as they present their case study on User Exits. As they moved away from green screen and into the Power-Link applications, they had a requirement to provide a purchase receipt transaction and IP (Planned Manufacturing Issue) transaction within the standard XA Scheduled Receipts. Enterprise Integrator allowed them to modify the client user exits as they developed a process flow and new functionality utilizing the longstanding and innovative technologies within Power-Link.

Recommended for Intermediate users, this session will address these objectives:

• Show how Enterprise Integrator User Exits made this development very easy to engrain within a XA Power-Link application.
• Show how it replaced an old green screen product while receiving PO’s and issuing to an MO.
• How it saves time (for the development team and end users).

Limited Capacity seats available

System-Link has been available for many years but not everyone knows the ways it can simplify your life. Join this session to see examples of how System-Link is used to handle real-world tasks efficiently. We will share examples using both the RPG and Web Enabled interfaces. Examples covered include linking to third party quality systems, uploading data from Excel into XA and even integrating a PLM system into XA to create Item Revisions, Process, BOM’s and Routings. This session is appropriate for users of all levels and is intended to help you understand how System-Link can simplify your integration projects.

(513) System Link XA to XA Integration Case Study (Items and BOM)
Limited Capacity filling up

PneumaticScaleAngelus (PSA) is part of Barry-Wehmiller, one of Infor’s largest XA customers including 10 operating divisions and 11,000 team members around the world. PSA sells, designs, manufacturers, and services similar-model machines in both their United States and Italian divisions which aligns with 2 XA environments. These 2 environments, created by the need for different inventory valuation, had over the years become disparate from one another in regards to common items and machine bills of materials. This hindered engineering collaboration due to the bill of material silo effect across environments and service parts sales since the same global item could be sold as a service part but may or may not exist in one environment. A global initiative was created to create an automated replication process that would copy newly created and/or changed items and bills of material back and forth from one environment to another. PSA will save thousands of dollars in direct and indirect labor costs by having these common machine bills and items being housed in both environments in similar form as well as using this application as a springboard for the promotion of standardization across structures and processes.

Audience members having a basic knowledge of EPDM and System Link is helpful, but certainly not required to gain valuable insight from this session. You are encouraged to attend and listen and learn from John while he walks you through his experience with the development of this application. You will walk away with the following insights,

• Learn the different replication strategies available in XA.
• Learn how PSA uses EPDM Alternate Bill of Materials to quarantine replicated bills of material.
• Learn how System Link requests can be constructed dynamically through configuration files.
