The Pico MES API provides a connection between the Pico server and an outside system (such as an ERP). The basic API structure allows for ERPs to create Work Orders in Pico. And then on completion of those Work Orders in Pico, Pico will send back completion messages to the ERP as dictated in the API endpoints.
In addition to Work Orders, Pico can also send the latest process configurations to the ERP. The Pico process configuration info allows the ERP to stay up to date with the latest processes and workflows created in Pico. This way, BOM items and/or routings in the ERP can be accurately mapped to Pico processes.
