Proficy Enterprise Connector 1.5 provides bi-directional enterprise integration between Proficy and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems, such as SAP. The introduction of this real-time capability allows manufacturers to establish flexible production operations and remain competitive in this global economy, according to the manufacturer, GE Fanuc.

As an extension of the company's Proficy Plant Applications integrated suite of production management solutions, Enterprise Connector enables the mapping of the external business systems requests to/from the Proficy information architecture. The information from manufacturing facilities is now available to the business.

The Proficy Enterprise Connector leverages the ISA-95 standard to define the interface between an enterprise's business and manufacturing systems through the XML-based B2MML (business-to-manufacturing markup language) schema. It automatically generates B2MML schemas and message types for immediate use in orchestrations and/or mapping. It exchanges messages from all of the various connected business applications with Proficy, enabling ERP visibility into production management real-time data for material consumption, performance reporting, schedule execution and other supply-chain and/or enterprise-level functions.
