SyteLine ERP Manufacturing Software: Framework

Every ERP Manufacturing application has a framework, but the term has a wide range of meaning. For this reason, and because the framework provides major areas of functionality in the SyteLine Manufacturing ERP system, a brief explanation is in order.

The central defining goal of the framework is to minimize the amount of coding required (both by Infor developers and by partners and customizers) in order to maximize:

  • customizations that require no or minimal coding and are automatically upgradeable
  • rapid development
  • insulation from underlying technology changes among various software systems

Code is still required of course; therefore, another key goal of the framework is to use standard Microsoft technologies and tools to write the code. The Infor SyteLine ERP framework accomplishes these goals by defining metadata for the user interface (forms) and the mid-tier business objects (IDOs, or intelligent data objects). The forms and IDO definitions are stored in a database. Since metadata cannot be directly executed (it isn't code), the SyteLine ERP framework is the runtime environment for both the forms and for the IDOs. The forms are executed by the WinStudio client engine, and the IDOs are executed by the IDORuntime. This also means that the Infor SyteLine ERP framework must provide design tools for the development and customization of the metadata. Infor's advanced technology enables radical changes that all upgrade as metadata.

One additional goal of the SyteLine Manufacturing ERP framework is driven by its core goal of metadata-driven development: the framework must provide core functions to the application so that application developers and customizers don't need to write code to ensure they are properly implemented. For example, the SyteLine Manufacturing ERP framework provides the implementation for notes, user-defined fields, replication, security, licensing, Web service, and XML interfaces, customization, translation, background task execution, and reporting interfaces.

Godlan's Implementation Promise is why leading manufacturers choose Godlan as their Manufacturing ERP system partner. Read to find out why.

SyteLine ERP Manufacturing Software: Event System

The Workflow Event System of SyteLine ERP Manufacturing software is a powerful and flexible set of tools designed to help extend and customize how the system works. You can use these tools to define and monitor processes across the SyteLine Manufacturing ERP system.

Workflows can be triggered during the use of an application. Events can have multiple triggers and can be generated by user actions, conditions in a database, other events, or other situations.

ERP Software Personalization Framework

The central defining goal of the framework is to minimize the amount of coding required (both by Infor developers and by partners and customizers) in order to maximize:

  • customizations that require no or minimal coding and are automatically upgradeable
  • rapid development
  • insulation from underlying technology changes among various software systems
