2.6.4.8. Seamless with ERP integration

In the following some particularities when using an ERP integration are explained:

  • Red/Green depiction of catalogs, directories and projects.

    When using an ERP integration, Red/Green depiction of catalogs, directories and projects is used in Seamless (as in PARTdataManager).

    Tabbed page Catalogs:

    According to role definition, after activation of the function Preferred rows on/off red directories and projects are hidden.

    After activation of the "Preferred rows on/off" function only green directories and projects are visible.

    After activation of the "Preferred rows on/off" function only green directories and projects are visible.

    Tabbed page View:

    According to role definition, after activation of the function Preferred rows on/off only characteristics matching the rule are shown. When activating the filter, the red ones (without any green) are hidden.[12]

    In the list field, different characteristics are available.

    In the list field, different characteristics are available.

    After activation of the function "Preferred rows on/off", in this example, only the characteristics (D = 10 and 16) matching the preferred rows condition are still available.

    After activation of the function "Preferred rows on/off", in this example, only the characteristics (D = 10 and 16) matching the preferred rows condition are still available.

    On this also compare the "Filter" search function :

    If the filter Preferred rows on/off is activated, then the search result only contains projects and parts which match the preferred rows condition.

    More details can be found under Section 3.1.11.2.2, “ Use preferred rows filter ”.

  • Display of Show PLM documents button

    Via variable PDMTABLE_DOCVIEW, the PDM documents can be displayed in Seamless as well.

    If PlmDocView is active in the configuration file erpcustom.cfg, then the respective button is displayed (beside Recalc 3D geometry).

    More information on this can be found under Section 3.1.4, “Show CAD documents (PDM-ID) in PARTdataManager ” in PARTsolutions / PARTcommunity4Enterprise - Administration Manual -> "Meaning of symbols in the column PLMTABLE_DOCVIEW".

  • Display of Link database toolbar

    The Link database toolbar can optionally be displayed in Seamless (default is off).

    Activation in $CADENAS_USER\seamless.cfg

    [OPTIONS]
    ShowLinkDbToolbar=true

    The ERP toolbar in Seamless can optionally contain other additional functionality. The settings required for this are identical with those for the display in PARTdataManager. Details on this can be found under Section 4.21.1, “ Load additional scripts - erpcustom.cfg -> Block [LOAD]” in PARTsolutions / PARTcommunity4Enterprise - Administration Manual.

  • Add ERP number during export

    Standard case when using an ERP integration in PARTsolutions is to add ERP numbers in PARTdataManager via ERP toolbar and the command Add dataset to link database. At the same time there is an export restriction for parts which do not have an ERP number.

    Meaning that in the standard case parts without ERP number cannot be exported into CAD directly from Seamless.

    However, alternatively there is the possibility to automatically call the dialog new ident-no. in order to create an ERP number if parts do not already have one yet.

    Details on this can be found under Section 1.7.4.8.18.2, “Seamless: Enter ERP number during export ” in PARTsolutions / PARTcommunity4Enterprise - Administration Manual.
