How eMESA Live Works


Presentation Layer

The Presentation Layer of eMESA Live provides the entire user experience. Our team of dedicated engineers have worked hard to make sure the user doesn’t have to go through too many tabs, too many clicks or too many headaches to accomplish simple tasks.

Cache / Search Engine Layer

To deliver faster search results, eMESA Live caches those data elements in the source system that change relatively infrequently. Equipment Master, Material Master, System Table Code and similar elements are cached every few hours, greatly improving speed. eMESA Live's internal search technology spans multiple tables and multiple fields for relevant, accurate search results.

eMESA Live Web Service API

The eMESA Web Service API provides external applications with an XML Web Service interface that they can use to communicate with back-end ERP systems. The web service, which is also used by the eMESA Live Presentation Layer, is completely programmable and standards-compliant.

ERP Integration Layer

The eMESA ERP Integration Layer serves as the connectivity layer between the underlying ERP system and eMESA. Built from the ground up using Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), the eMESA Integration Layer handles the communication with each ERP API. Different technologies are applied given the different interface requirements for the specific ERP applications.
