IntroductionPrefaceSYSPRO’s Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) solution provides complete manufacturing lifecyclemanagement from planning, scheduling, publishing, collecting, tracking and analyzing to optimize andimprove end-to-end manufacturing operations.Used in combination with SYSPRO’s ERP, this Manufacturing Execution System (MES) offers a unique level ofdelivery, cost and quality control of manufacturing operations for job shop, batch production, production lineand mixed mode environments, helping to increase productivity, minimize loss and lower production costs.The following sections list the minimum suggested hardware and software requirements for ManufacturingOperations Management. These requirements do not take into consideration any additional hardware orsoftware requirements that are required by SYSPRO such as Microsoft Windows or Microsoft SQL Server. Thisdocument is provided as a guideline only and SYSPRO cannot guarantee the accuracy of any informationpresented after the date of publication. SYSPRO makes no warranties, express, implied or statutory, as to theinformation in this document.Core Features of MOMManufacturing Operations Management Web SiteManufacturing Operations Management requires an instance of the application to be installed per SYSPROCompany. Users connect to the Manufacturing Operations Management site using windows authenticationfrom their web browser. Each instance of Manufacturing Operations Management is configured for a specificSYSPRO company and it is recommended to install a separate instance for testing/training purposes inproduction environments. Users accessing the Manufacturing Operations Management site outside of thecorporate network will need to enter their domain and username credentials. Application rights are configuredthrough the Manufacturing Operations Management application.SmartLYNQ Web SiteManufacturing Operations Management is a value added application powered by LYNQ. Seamless integrationwith SYSPRO ERP is achieved using SYSPRO’s e.net objects in combination with a web application calledSmartLYNQ. In addition SmartLYNQ maintains settings for the configuration of the Manufacturing OperationsManagement document library. This application should be made available to system administrators and toany user that will maintain the integration of Manufacturing Operations Management to SYSPRO. SmartLYNQcommunicates with SYSPRO via the SYSPRO WCF Services. This service must be installed prior to installingSmartLYNQ. Users connect to the SmartLYNQ site using windows authentication from their web browser. Usersaccessing the SmartLYNQ site outside of the corporate network will need to enter their domain and usernamecredentials.SYSPRO EDUCATION SYSPRO. All Rights Reserved.

Visual APS Desktop ClientThe Visual APS Desktop Client can be installed locally or on an application server supporting either Citrix orTerminal Services. In situations where Visual APS will be accessed by users in remote locations, the applicationshould be run over Citrix or Terminal Services. Visual APS is used by your production planners for schedulingand publishing purposes. Users can connect to Visual APS using either Windows or SQL authentication.Application rights can be configured either from the application or within SQL explicitly. For users outside ofthe corporate network, SQL authentication must be used if they are not accessing the application on aCitrix/Terminal Server within the same corporate network where SYSPRO is installed.Two-Tier Server Configuration(Web and SQL on the same Server)In the example of a two-tier setup, all components of Manufacturing Operations Management will be installedon the same server. Manufacturing Operations Management, SmartLYNQ and the databases required for eachapplication will reside on the SYSPRO Server.This type of setup is suitable for organizations with a low number of users and where performance and securityof the application is less of a consideration.SYSPRO EDUCATION SYSPRO.

Three-Tier Server Configuration(Dedicated Web and SQL Server)In the example of a three-tier setup, components of Manufacturing Operations Management will be installedon a dedicated Web and SQL Server. Manufacturing Operations Management and Smart LYNQ will be installedon the Web Server and the applications databases will reside on the dedicated SQL Server.This type of setup is suitable for organizations where performance and security of the application is animportant consideration.IMPORTANT: In both two and three tier configurations, the Manufacturing Operations Management web sitedatabase(s) must reside on the same SQL Server as SYSPRO. SQL Server must be configured inmixed mode authentication.Minimum Hardware RequirementsThe following hardware requirements should be considered for production environments.SYSPRO EDUCATION SYSPRO.

The application server will require a certain amount of RAM to be set aside for theoperating system, leaving the rest for client sessions.Visual APS is processor intensive. While processing the auto scheduling operation, we recommend that youdedicate a separate processor (core) for each Visual APS session. Supplying additional cores for the applicationsauto scheduling operation will provide faster performance almost proportionally to the number of cores youhave used.SYSPRO EDUCATION SYSPRO.

Visual APS uses Random Access Memory (RAM) to hold all data while it processes planning data. Eachinstallation will vary on the amount of memory required based on the amount of process data. You shouldconsider 4/8GB RAM per Visual APS session depending on the complexity of scheduling requirements andvolume of data.Manufacturing Operations Management Application and ShopFloor UsersHardware PC, Laptop, Tablet PC, All-in-One Touch Screen PC, iPadUSB Host port or Bluetooth for Data Input Devices (Barcode Scanners)1GHz Processor (Dual Core preferable)2GB RAM10” screen minimum for tablet devices1920 x 1080 minimum screen resolutionCase protector (optional)Wall mounting devices (optional)Network connectivity to Web ServerSoftware Android and iOSWindows 7Windows 8Windows 10Internet Explorer 11, Google, Chrome, Safari, Microsoft EdgeVisual APS Desktop ClientRAMCores(virtual)Cores(physical)Hard DiskNICScreen Resolution4GB/8GB2 to 41 processor1GB100MB/1GB21”-24” (1920 x 1080)SQL Disk and Database ConfigurationsManufacturing Operations Management maintains separate databases for the application logic, applicationdata and the application configuration. It is recommended that the recovery model in Microsoft SQL Serverset against the application database is set to full recovery for disaster recovery purposes.NOTE: Remember to include in any disk capacity calculations adequate space for storing transaction logs,incremental and full SQL backups as required.Unless you can tolerate any downtime, you should add protection to your servers against unexpected drivefailures by using RAID. Hardware RAID implementations are always preferred over software RAIDimplementations. RAID 0 (disk striping without parity) offers optimal read/write performance, but if a driveSYSPRO EDUCATION SYSPRO. All Rights Reserved.

fails, IIS/SQL won’t be able to continue operation until the drive is replaced and its contents are restored frombackup. Because of this, RAID 0 isn’t the recommended choice. RAID 1 (disk mirroring) creates duplicate copiesof data on separate physical drives, allowing the server to remain operational when a drive fails, and even whilethe RAID controller rebuilds a replacement drive in a failed mirror. RAID 5 (disk striping with parity) offers goodprotection against single-drive failure but has poor write performance. RAID 1 0 (disk stripping and mirroringwith parity) offers the best level of performance and protection.For the best network throughput, all servers should be configured with a 1GB Network Interface.NOTE: Hardware requirements for both the Database and Web Server should be periodically reviewed toensure Manufacturing Operations Management’s response times are within acceptable levels for yourorganization. To maintain read/write times it is recommended that Microsoft SQL Server DatabaseMaintenance plans are configured to rebuild and reorganize data on a regular basis.Software Requirement and Pre-RequisitesThe following tables detail the minimum software requirement for all components of ManufacturingOperations Management.Minimum Software Requirements – Web ServerOperatingSystemManufacturing Operations Management is supported on the following operatingsystems Windows Server 2008 R2 Windows Server 2012 Windows Server 2012 R2 Windows Server 2016AdditionalSoftware IIS 7.0 , IIS 8.0 and IIS 10 with .NET Extensibility enabledo ASP.NET Impersonation and Windows Authentication enabledMicrosoft .NET Framework 4 and aboveSSL Certificate (optional) Internet Explorer 11 Microsoft EdgeGoogle ChromeSafari SupportedBrowsersMinimum Software Requirements – Database ServerMicrosoftServerSQL Microsoft SQL Server, Standard and Enterpriseo Versions 2005, 2008, 2008R2, 2012, 2014, 2016SYSPRO EDUCATION SYSPRO.
