EtQ's Integration Management Utilities Link Business Systems to the QMS

FARMINGDALE, NY (05-25-07): EtQ has announced the release of the EtQ Integration APIs (Application Programming Interface), which enable EtQ's enterprise quality management solution to integrate information silos, making timely coordination and communication easy to achieve and removing any information.

In many companies, information is often stored across multiple business systems. Production systems such as MES (Manufacturing Execution Systems), ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning), or LIMS (Laboratory Information Management Systems) are operated independent of each other, creating a silo effect. This effect creates a disconnect within the enterprise, where information is not easily shared, productivity is diminished due to "double-work" and quality is not tracked.

EtQ's Integration APIs are able to provide an enterprise quality management solution that integrates information silos, making timely coordination and communication easy to achieve and removing any information gatekeepers. This focused integration of information silos greatly improves productivity across the enterprise, and makes crucial data immediately available to the resources that need it, when they need it.

Key benefits of EtQ's Integration API:

  • Reduce the time and cost of dual-entry by looking up part, product, supplier, and customer information directly from your existing production systems.
  • Eliminate the quality gap by automatically converting defects identified by your production systems into workflow based Nonconforming Material events in EtQ. • Prevent poor data quality by selecting from existing data in external systems, such as product, supplier, customer, etc.
  • Shorten your inventory cycles by automatically releasing products put on hold in your production systems when the appropriate investigation and release phases have been completed in EtQ.
  • Minimize risk in product releases by scanning systems for open Quality issues prior to release, and automatically preventing product releases if issues are found.

The EtQ Integration APIs run with EtQ Reliance on multiple operating systems and database servers. EtQ also features a comprehensive Connector for SAP, enabling direct calls to SAP BAPIs via the SAP Java API, or via third-party EAI tools. This integration accelerates the transfer of quality data to and from SAP and to eliminate gaps in the quality system. Contact EtQ for more information on SAP integration.
