As a leading PLM manufacturer, SAP understands that the management of mechatronic product data is becoming increasingly complex and that solutions for integrating the associated development disciplines are becoming more important for cross-departmental collaboration.
As a leading specialist in the integration of design environments for mechatronic product development, XPLM is a certified SAP partner.
XPLM connectivity provides users of ECAD design environments with an effective and easy-to-use integration solution. Controlled by the author system, it provides the management of native design data, the creation and storage of manufacturing information, the creation and storage of parts lists, as well as the bi-directional synchronization of parts/materials properties and much more. The integration solutions are based on the XPLM platform, as well as the SAP Engineering Control Center interface.
A holistic overview of product data is a prerequisite for cross-departmental collaboration, as products become more diverse and complex.
All integrations of mechanical and electronic CAD systems to SAP PLM are being done via SAP ECTR since the beginning of 2017. This way, all product data can be made available company-wide throughout its entire life cycle.
XPLM has developed the SAP Engineering Control Center integration with ECAD in cooperation with DSC Software AG. Ever since, the SAP Engineering Control Center has been SAP's strategic platform for integrating author tools into SAP PLM, such as mechanical, electrical and electronic CAD systems, as well as office applications and software applications.
All product data is managed centrally in SAP and version-controlled by way of the same release and change processes. SAP ECTR enables the simple representation of the product data complexity and its holistic and intuitive management based on the underlying data models And this can be performed directly from the respective author system. A user is not required to have any SAP knowledge to enter and manage data in SAP centrally.
XPLM's integration solutions provide the basis for the effective, central management and organization of product data in SAP PLM.
The SAP Engineering Control Center interfaces are exclusively distributed by SAP. As a longtime partner of SAP SE, we support the interface strategy of SAP and develop the SAP Engineering Control Center interfaces for the following ECAD systems:
