3 Integrating with Intelligent Graphic Solution

This chapter contains the following topics:

3.1 Understanding IGS

IGS is a third-party product that you can purchase separately. It is not a requirement of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Capital Asset Management (CAM) or JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Service Management.

IGS is a graphical tool that can illustrate equipment, buildings, and inventory item assemblies. You can see each item or part in picture format, and in relation to its parents or other components. You can see an entire assembly, select parts from the graphic, and return the item number to the parts list in JD Edwards EnterpriseOne.

3.2 Prerequisites

Before you can use the IGS integration, you must:

  • Enable the Use Graphical Parts Book option in the S/WM System Constants program (P17001).

    See Setting Up Service and Warranty Constants.

  • Provide the first part of the URL for the IGS product using the Integration program (P90CG001):

    Note:

    If you add multiple IGS records, the system only uses the first record.
    1. Enter P90CG001 in the Fast Path.

    2. On the Integration form, click Add.

    3. On the Integration Detail form, enter IGS in the Application Type field.

    4. Enter the server name, depending on the installation, in the Server Name field.

      Note:

      Work with the third-party software company to determine the actual address.
  • Set the IGS processing option to define the mode for the parts applications:

    • P13730 - Work Order Parts, for CAM work orders only.

    • P17730 - Work Order Parts, which is shared between CAM and Service Management.

    • P90CD015 - Work Order Parts, for Service Management work orders only.

      Note:

      Since this is a processing option, different versions can exist, thereby enabling for different modes to be used based on the user. The processing option help text provides a list of the available options. If you leave the IGS processing option blank, the system uses the assy value. Please see the third-party IGS documentation for an explanation of the different modes.
  • Create a work order to provide the final part of the URL

    The system uses the work order header item number, work order equipment number, work order number, and user ID as the final variables in the URL.

    Note:

    If the work order header item number is not available, the system will use the work order equipment number.

3.3 Integrating with IGS

This section discusses the programs used to integrate with IGS.

You only need to use one of these procedures to integrate with IGS.

Note:

The Start IGS or Call IGS option on the Form menu brings up a new browser window with the IGS product. Information passed to IGS includes the work order number, inventory item number, equipment number and user ID. This is where the integration begins and this document ends. Please see the third-party IGS documentation for additional details.
