Integrate Tekla PowerFab to SigmaNest

Integrating Tekla PowerFab to SigmaNest eliminates manual double entry of inventory and parts.

Inventory export sends or updates inventory from Tekla PowerFab to SigmaNest. This integration is intended to have Tekla PowerFab as the primary data source, keepingSigmaNest up to date via SimTrans.

Importing inventory from HTML allows SigmaNest to send inventory, particularly remnants that were created outside the integration, to Tekla PowerFab.

You can nest a combining run with SigmaNest from Tekla PowerFab. Parts (but not inventory) are exported as a nesting request for SigmaNest. The SigmaNest user selects a work order and nests the parts on to stock.

The results of the nesting run can be sent back to Tekla PowerFab with the Tekla PowerFab plugin for SigmaNest.

Doing a post in SigmaNest reserves inventory or creates a requisition to order material in Tekla PowerFab.

Once the nest is ready to cut, performing a program update in SigmaNest triggers a take from stock in Tekla PowerFab, marking parts as cut, relieving stock from inventory, and saving the remnants inventory.
