DriveWorks Pro 18: SYSPRO PowerPack [send feedback...]

SYSPRO PowerPack

The SYSPRO PowerPack allows DriveWorks to integrate with SYSPRO ERP Business Software for Manufacturing.

The PowerPack works with SYSPRO v7 and v8.

The PowerPack is required to be installed and set up on each machine that has access to the Project(s) that integrate with SYSPRO.

The SYSPRO PowerPack allows data to be read directly from the SYSPRO database. Data can also be written back to the SYSPRO database.

When it comes to passing data back to the system there are two methods:

  • The business objects that SYSPRO provides can be used to push the data directly into the SYSPRO system.
  • DriveWorks can create XML file outputs so that SYSPRO data switch can process these as a separate entity.

These methods can be used individually or combined to suit the needs of the integration.

Installation

DriveWorks and SolidWorks should be closed while installing the plug-in.

Double click the DriveWorks-SYSPROPowerPack-[version number].msi file to begin the installation process.

Once installed the plug-in is automatically loaded in DriveWorks.

Uninstall

The plug-in is uninstalled from Windows Programs and Features, and will be listed as DriveWorks SYSPRO PowerPack [version number].

DriveWorks should be closed and restarted once the plug-in has been uninstalled to remove it from the plug-in list in the DriveWorks settings.
