  • Example: Using an AppServer to Run MRP
    This section shows a practical example of how to set up an AppServer to dramatically improve the performance of MRP.
    To use the MRP AppServer, you need to perform three main tasks:
    Modify the file for the AppServer instance.
    Configure the AppServer.
    Start and stop the AppServer as required.
    See User Guide: Manufacturing.
    Modify the Properties File
    To set up an AppServer to support MRP processing, you must add a set of parameters to the Progress file to identify information about the AppServer instance.
    You can modify in two ways:
    Manually edit the file.
    Use the Progress Explorer tool to change parameters through a graphical user interface.
    Note: The Explorer tool is available only on Windows.
    Progress Explorer can also be used to start and stop the AppServer, and for remote administration.
    Choose Start|Programs|Progress|Progress Explorer Tool.
    Choose File|Connect.
    Specify the host name and Admin Server port of the machine you want to administer remotely.
    Enter a valid user ID for the remote machine and a password, if required.
