REST APIs for Shop Order Material Management Transactions

Written by Pieter Hamans on . Posted in Exact Online

The shop orders in Exact for Manufacturing allow for four types of material management transactions: material issues, product receipts, by-product receipts and issues to parent (a suborder that yields a subassembly to a parent order). All these transactions are now supported by REST API endpoints. Moreover, for each of these transactions a reversal process is supported by the API as well. These REST APIs allow developers to execute material management transactions from within their own apps.

Types of manufacturing material management transactions supported

Four types of manufacturing material management transactions are supported:

restapi-001

 

Endpoint MaterialIssues: Issuing of materials from inventory to the shop order

Endpoint ShopOrderReceipts: Receiving of product from the shop order into inventory

Endpoint ByProductReceipts: Receiving of by-product from the shop order into inventory

Endpoint SubOrderReceipts: Receiving of product from a suborder to a parent shop order

 

These REST APIs, dependent on the edition of Exact for Manufacturing where they are used in, support multiple warehouses and serial/batch numbers (Advanced), and multiple storage locations (Premium).

 

Currently, no REST APIs are available to support purchase materials on the shop order and purchase subcontracts.

 

Reversals of manufacturing material management transactions supported

Four types of manufacturing material management reversal transactions are supported:

restapi-002

 

Endpoint MaterialReversals: Returning of materials from the shop order to inventory

Endpoint ShopOrderReversals: Returning of product from inventory to the shop order

Endpoint ByProductReversals: Returning of by-product from inventory to the shop order

Endpoint SubOrderReversals: Returning of product from a parent shop order to the suborder

 

These endpoints are valuable to developers that build shop floor apps (manufacturing execution systems, MES), warehouse management systems (WMS), quality management systems (QMS) and interfaces with smart machines (Industrial Internet of Things).

 

These REST APIs are available as of now. More information with Pieter Hamans, pieter.hamans@exact.com
