Siemens PLM Regional User Group Meeting

SAP Engineering Control Center interface to NX Inspires Motor City

Karlsruhe, Germany / Detroit, USA, October 2017 – With 550 participants, the largest Siemens PLM Regional User Group met in Detroit in early October. 33 Siemens partners were also represented, presenting a broad range of solutions for Siemens NX. DSC Software AG was also there for the first time with its own stand and, in live demos, showed the manifold implementation possibilities of SAP Engineering Control Center.

More than anything else, the integration to NX, implemented by the SAP Engineering Control Center interface to NX solution, met with great interest among the visitors. This solution enables the seamless integration of all CAD/CAM and CAE data in SAP. In this way, NX models and drawings can be managed securely and consistently. Moreover, product literature and documents can be enriched with data from NX. For the central management, classification and linking of the data in SAP, NX users don’t even have to leave their familiar working environment, thanks to an integrated menu.

Digital transformation primarily means creating consistent information flows and processes – and therefore a “single source of truth.” SAP Engineering Control Center helps companies to remove system breaks between different development tools and the PLM/ERP system. This facilitates not only cooperation in development teams on different sites but also collaboration with external partners. The controlled, joint development of a product as well as the use of corresponding data in work preparation, production planning, sales, and order processing demands an intelligent solution, which DSC provides with SAP Engineering Control Center and the related integrations.
