Manufacturing Data Transaction Management

SimTrans is an online transaction manager that serves as a bridge between SigmaNEST nesting software and Material Requirement Planning (MRP) systems, order entry or other management software solutions. MRP and/or other management software usually reside on large, centralized servers or mainframe systems while SigmaNEST is normally installed on workstations. SimTrans acts as the transaction manager between two systems regardless of the platform used for installation.
