Minimum / Recommended System Requirements

This Web Page is designed to provide you with some basic information related to the installation of our applications. It will also provide you with some basic information regarding minimum hardware requirements needed to run our application efficiently.

Please note: the details outlined on this Web Page are generic, and only take into consideration the operational requirement of our application. None of this information/specification provided takes into account other systems or network requirements related to the use of other third party application, including SQL Server®. Please refer to your IT/hardware provider for final requirements.

Common Installation Sernerios (Basic Installation - Network Diagram)

The installation diagram shown below provides a graphical view of a common Enterprise 32 installation. In this diagram, the system installation is broken up into three separate sections, your office workstations (computers 1- 3), database server, and shop floor data collection workstations (computers 4 – 6).

The first group of computers depicted in this diagram are the office workstations, (computers 1- 3). Each of these workstations will have Enterprise 32 application installed, with each being connected to the database, once installed, through your network using a standard network connection configured in Enterprise 32, which includes the Server Name, User ID, and Password.

The second group depicted in this diagram is the database server, which may host other application and/or databases besides the Enterprise 32 database. However, in this example we will assume the primary role of this server is dedicated to the sole use of Enterprise 32 application. With the server in place and connected to your network, you will need to have Microsoft® SQL® Server application installed and running. With SQL® in place, you can then attach the blank Enterprise 32 database provided by EPMS to SQL®, allowing access to Enterprise 32. You’re not required to install the Enterprise 32 application on your server although some customers do. This allows for basic system maintenance, such as running the “Database Update” routine required after an upgrade of the application has been performed.

The third group of computers depicted in this diagram are the Shop Floor workstations (computers 4- 6), which are used as data collection terminals. These computers will have the Enterprise 32 application installed direct on each of them, with a connection to the database, once installed, through your network using a standard network connection, that includes the Server Name, User ID, and Password.

Common Installation Scenarios (Installation using Terminal Services® - Network Diagram)

The installation diagram shown below provides a graphical view of a common Enterprise 32 installation using Terminal Services® to remotely launch Enterprise 32. In this diagram, the system installation is broken up into three separate sections, your office workstations (computers 1- 3), database/application server, and shop floor data collection workstations (computers 4 – 6).

The first group of computers depicted in this diagram are the office workstations, (computers 1- 3). Each of these work station will access the Enterprise 32 application through the network using the Remote Desktop Connection®, which is the client side of Terminal Services®, which is a Microsoft® product. The advantage to using Terminal Services® is substantial, because it will eliminate the need to have the Enterprise 32 installed individually on every workstation. Instead you will be viewing an image of the application generated at the application server via Terminal Services®. Another advantage is that it will simplify the ongoing maintenance and upgrade process substantially, since it only installs on the application server as opposed to each individual workstation. Also, with a download from Microsoft® you can run the Remote Desktop Connection® client for a Mac, allowing any Mac user in your company to access Enterprise 32.

The second group depicted in this diagram is the database server, and an application/Terminal Server, both of which may host other application and/or databases besides the Enterprise 32 database/application. However, in this example we will assume the primary role of these servers is dedicated to the sole use of the Enterprise 32 application, and Terminal Services®. With the database server hardware in place and connected to your network, you will need to have the Microsoft® SQL Server® application installed and running. With SQL® in place. You can then attach the blank Enterprise 32 database, provided by EPMS, to SQL®, allowing access to Enterprise 32 once installed on the Terminal Server.

The third group of computers depicted in this diagram are the Shop Floor workstations (computers 4- 6), which are used as data collection terminals on your production floor. Like your office work station, each of these workstations will access the Enterprise 32 application through the network using Terminal Services®. Please Note: This Installation Sernio outlined below applies directly to Hosting the Database Server in the cloud. It will require a cloud hosted Application Server running TS/Remote Desk Top.
