Linking ECAD systems profitably with SAP PLM

The speed of innovation is increasing. At the same time, technical products are becoming ever more complex, partly by the combination of MCAD and ECAD components. This is where efficient engineering is called for, across both disciplines. Our integration solutions for ECAD systems smooth the way to perfect collaboration – for a fast and secure overall result. Whether circuit diagrams, PCBs, or complete switching systems: thanks to integration, the relevant data and documents flow back from the ECAD design to the central SAP system. That means you can manage the more function-oriented ECAD data in the same system as the assembly-based MCAD data: according to uniform data model and coordinated methods. Then, ECAD and MCAD data can be exchanged. Plus: you can link ECAD data to MCAD documents as well as to other SAP objects. In this way, all designers can always keep an eye on the whole product, together with all additional information. They can see the current development progress, track changes easily, and very simply identify the release statuses. Here they are aided not only by a status network but also by the system-based change management. All that saves lots of time and gives you many other benefits: from easier collaboration and earlier validation to coordinated material BOMs and releases – for smooth follow-on processes.
