Q: What methods are there for data linkage and operation between the Advanced Planning and Scheduling System and the programs that you yourself have developed?

A: There are methods of linkage via text files and relational databases (RDB) such as Microsoft Access. To assign data from an external program to the Advanced Planning and Scheduling System use the Advanced Planning and Scheduling System's import functions.Conversely, to incorporate the Advanced Planning and Scheduling System's schedule results into and process them by an external program use the Advanced Planning and Scheduling System's export function. Although the method of linking through such things as RDB is a remote link, it is a kind of program development with a relatively low level of difficulty.
