Integration™ | Automated Data Services provides end-users with easy data import and MES transaction execution capabilities, through intuitive script commands. This provides a very flexible, even ad-hoc, alternative to entering transactions through the Graphical User Interface. Automated Data Services are the simple way for users to utilize external data sources, without reliance on Information Technology experts or traditional Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). Users simply provide a database file or flat file of data (e.g. an Excel spreadsheet or .csv file) to use with a scripted transaction, or sequence of transactions, and then map them for execution. ADS has been used by customers for a wide variety of very fast and low-cost integration purposes including populating the Eyelit database when implementing the system, migrating from legacy systems, tool integration for data collection, and triggering lot starts in Eyelit from external systems.
