DSC and BDF enhance the standard SAP product portfolio with the new solution SAP PPG

Karlsruhe, May 3, 2022 – For being able to secure competitiveness and viability, industrial enterprises need to manage customer-specific orders flexibly, as well as efficiently and at low costs. This is equally important for companies in plant engineering and industrial machinery that completely or partly develop products with customer-specific requirements, as well as for producers of highly variable standard products with high complexity. Bearing that in mind, the partners DSC and BDF EXPERTS enhance the standard SAP product portfolio with a new solution – SAP Product and Process Governance by BDF | SAP PPG.

SAP PPG | Integrate. Synchronize. Automate.

  • Solution for automating customer-specific order processes in SAP – for SAP ECC or SAP S/4HANA
  • Standard component of the SAP PLM solution portfolio
  • Basis for the creation of a central Digital Product Model, that enables the following:
    • Complete management and processing of customer orders in ONE system – SAP
    • Complete integration and control of all data and processes relevant for the value chain
    • Continuous digital automated processes – consistently, transparently, efficiently, and agilely

ONE Digital Product Model at the core of the solution

  • Based on SAP Product Structure
  • Complements the SAP data model with virtual objects, for example
    • Virtual material
    • Document
    • Routing
    • Virtual (variant) classes
    • Bills of material
  • Enhances SAP Product Structure, generally only comprising design and production, with sales, project management, and service

With the Digital Product Model, product variants and structure process relations can be mapped so efficiently and flexibly, that companies can manage every real customer scenario with only one model. Whether it is a product containing not only in-house manufactured items but also purchased items, or product items underlying different production principles, such as Make-to-Stock | MTS, Assemble-to-Order | ATO, Make-to-Order | MTO, Configure-to-Order | CTO, or Engineer-to-Order | ETO.

“We closely collaborate with BDF and SAP for further developing SAP PPG and creating an even deeper integration in SAP ECTR,” states Dominik Maier Senior Vice President Products & Development and Authorized Signatory at DSC. He adds: “For DSC, SAP PPG is a further strategic development of our solution portfolio and an important contribution to Integrative PLM in SAP.”

“The endeavor to completely digitize business processes from product development to service also requires a deep understanding and integration of engineering processes and their data. Therefore, the integration with SAP ECTR provides a perfect possibility for flexibly meeting all customer requirements. Thus, the partnership DSC – BDF is an important component for our motto “Building Digital Future“. – Ulrich Schmidt, Managing Director at BDF
