Preventing Data Silos In Product Development
Interconnection and integration are the main factors for the success of all projects in digitalization. As part of SAP ERP, SAP PLM has always provided for interconnection and integration by uniting data and processes in one Business Suite.
Spot On: MCAD, ECAD And PDM Fully Integrated In SAP PLM
Since the company was founded in 1928, Waldmann has consistently focused on quality, safety and efficiency – not just for its own products. And as the obsolete company system was to be discontinued at the end of 2015, the choice fell to a proven, secure and efficient solution: SAP ERP with SAP PLM and SAP Engineering Control Center. With this, Waldmann has now modernized the company’s IT so that it is future-proof.
Jumpstarting New Success – With Integrated Engineering
Janicki Industries is a leading manufacturer of parts, prototypes, and tools made from state-of-the-art composites for the aerospace industry. Because of an AS9100 certification, the company from Sedro-Wooly (Washington, USA) decided to implement SAP as ERP system to ensure a consistent digitalization of its value chain.
Clear Advantage From Strategic Pit Stop
Design Engineers of HWA AG, an across-the-board engineering expert in car racing and high-performance vehicles, have always worked with CATIA. In 2015, Siemens NX 10 was introduced additionally. HWA used this introduction to remold established systems, including a change from SAP CAD Desktop | CDESK to SAP Engineering Control Center | SAP ECTR.
SAP Product Lifecycle Management
Holistic Integration Of Engineering Data For Intelligent Follow-Up Processes
Together with the strategic integration platform SAP Engineering Control Center | SAP ECTR, which integrates engineering data from authoring systems such as MCAD, ECAD and MS Office solutions to the SAP system and provides them in the right context, SAP PLM displays all product relevant data. The perfect starting point for all follow-up processes in the context of Internet of Things and Digital Twin:
SAP PLM is included in the ERP suite by default. Make data available to the whole company without much effort – from the first draft onwards.
Mechanical CAD Integration | MCAD
SAP Engineering Control Center | SAP ECTR is the standard integration platform for authoring tools, such as MCAD systems. SAP ECTR seamlessly connects MCAD systems with SAP PLM. This way, CAD models and drawings can be managed centrally and provided consistently – across all departments and locations.
With SAP Engineering Control Center | SAP ECTR, the standard integration platform for leading authoring tools, enterprises have the possibility to use different MCAD systems in parallel.
Electronic and Electric CAD Integration | ECAD
Products are becoming increasingly complex. Mechanics becomes less important. The proportion of electrics, electronics, and software is increasing. The integration: A challenging task for Product Lifecycle Management? Not for SAP ECTR!
Which product manufacturer does not know the challenge of a multitude of documents in different versions and change statuses that need to be managed in a feasible and efficient manner? How can this challenge be faced? With the integrated document management solution for SAP systems and SAP ECTR!
Within projects, the collaboration with partners and the assignment of single development steps to third parties is everyday practice these days. For the realization of a holistic development, these parties normally need access to their client’s PLM system – which is still a major challenge for many companies.
SAP ECTR makes it possible to use 2D and 3D product data in connection with business data in SAP – and this is feasible without a CAD system.
