NESTLink is a bi-directional fully automated tool that connects the engineering team to the shop floor by integrating nesting software with ERP in real-time.
Bridging the gap between your nesting software and ERP.
NESTLink pulls new job data automatically from the ERP to automatically create work orders in the nesting software, eliminating manual input processes. NESTLink also writes back to the ERP system after nesting and cutting operations; material and labor consumptions are recorded, guaranteeing increased efficiency and data accuracy.
Fast: Shop floor sees new nesting jobs real-time
Accurate: Capture the actual material usage on jobs
Easy: Never miss a file from your nesting parts library
Safe: Secure integration using ERP’s available API and nesting tool business objects
Create new nesting work orders automatically from your ERP Job Requirements
Automatically update the Job BOM from your nesting tool
Automatically create and update your nesting tool parts library
Synchronize ERP and nest tool sheet stock inventory
If your nesting tool has a sheet stock library, NestLink will keep the sheet stock library synchronized with your ERP. New sheets received in ERP are automatically created in the nesting tool. NestLink will update quantity on hand for sheets consumed by the nest.
Create nesting software part records
NestLink will create new parts based on the ERP job requirements and part information. If part geometry can be found, NestLink will also upload the geometry to the part record.
Create new nesting work orders
When a new job is scheduled and ready for production in ERP, NESTLink automatically checks the part method to find materials that need to be nested and creates new work orders in your nesting tool, matching the job requirements.
Update ERP Bill of Materials
After parts are nested and cut, NESTLink automatically updates the ERP Job BOM issuing the material, quantities and labor on the job and closing out nesting operations if required.
NESTLink saves time and resources,
capturing accurate data on actual material usage.
