Real-time MTConnect integration with Microsoft Dynamics NAV
How do I get my data from the machine into Microsoft Navision?
With the X10 Industrial Gateway you can easily read out your machine data via the MTConnect protocol. These are then transferred in real time to relevant Actyx applications. The Microsoft NAV 2013 integration enables the import of data into the ERP in a predefined data schema.
How does machine data acquisition with MTConnect work?
The Machine Data Collection (MDC) application is installed on the Actyx Industrial Gateway, which is based on the Hilscher netPI. Data translation for the respective data schema of the system can be configured via the graphical configuration interface. The gateway can be mounted on DIN-rails and is extremely robust, so that it can also be used flexibly in extreme industrial environments. The gateway also supports further machine integrations, such as OPC UA or EUROMAP 12/67.
Maintain data sovereignty in your Microsoft Navision system
When dealing with a heterogeneous IT landscape, it is more important than ever to have a reliable source of truth in the data center. Competing secondary systems or isolated solutions can even pose a business risk. Therefore, it is important to seamlessly integrate with Microsoft Navision for relevant data when it comes to machine data collection. For this purpose, a standard interface, operated on an Actyx virtual machine, is used to transfer data into your ERP system in real-time. Microsoft Dynamics thus remains the leading system for relevant data points.

Extend at the click of a button: leverage collected data with reporting, analytics and dashboards
If you collect machine data using MTConnect, you will have access to more data than what would be relevant in Microsoft Dynamics NAV. However, this data can still add value to your operations. For a positive business impact, machine data collection can easily be extended, for example by the Reporting & Analytics application or by Visual Management Dashboards that display relevant data in real-time.
Combine machine data collection with mobile terminals for higher data quality and more flexibility
When MTConnect data is imported into Microsoft NAV or used for analytics, this is often only the beginning. This can be extended, for example, by high-precision order-related Manual Work Logging. Or leverage the data, for mobile push-notifications about downtimes, faults, missing parts, etc. via the Mobile Team Collaboration application, so that the relevant employees can start working on resolving the issue right away.
Data and transparency only become helpful, if they are leveraged through deriving, formulating and measuring operational initiatives to add value.
