The following support note describes the steps to interface workorder creation that would normally be created manually through the Assembly register.
Using the Import Export function.
The WMS uses XML files to hold all the information required to create an Assembly. Each XML file represents one Assembly with component lines.
Once a Check In/Check Out has been successfully imported from an XML file it will appear as a normal transaction in the WMS as though a user had typed in the details via the Add or Remove Inventory windows.
The following support note describes how the XML files should be formed and how they are imported into the WMS.
1. Create a folder that will be used to hold Import/Export files.
It is recommended that a separate folder be created for each type of import. (CheckIns, CheckOuts, Adjustments, Assemblies.)
2. Select File, Import, then browse for the folder and import the required Assembly file.
3. The progress bar on the import dialog will move from 0 to 100% and on import completion will show the number of successfully imported files.
To check the system details of import the Status Reporter should be used.
An Import XML file MUST CONTAIN all the required tags in order to be correctly understood and accepted by the WMS.
An example Check In file is shown below and attached.
