With the SAP® premium qualified integration between SAP Engineering Control Center and AutoCAD, drawings and external references, including their dependent documents, are seamlessly managed as structures in SAP® PLM. All authorized users have access to the
originals stored in a central, secure area (single version of the truth) to monitor the development process or make changes. This eliminates redundant process steps.

There is no need for a separate Product Data Management (PDM) solution since the functionality of the SAP® system fills this gap. AutoCAD users work in their usual environment and directly load related original files via the integrated ribbon menu for processing or display. Bidirectional metadata exchange between AutoCAD and SAP® eliminates unnecessary manual data entry. A crucial benefit is the simple assignment of SAP® Material Masters to AutoCAD references and parts list elements as well as the automatic derivation of multi-level SAP® Bills of Materials. This guarantees consistent data structures and engineers gain more time for the real design process.

With the integration between SAP® Engineering Control Center and Inventor, assemblies, parts, drawings, including their dependent documents, are seemlessly managed as structures in SAP® PLM. All authorized users have access to the originals stored in a central, secure area (single version of the truth) to monitor the development process or make changes. This eliminates redundant process steps.

There is no need for a separate Product Data Management (PDM) solution since the functionality of the SAP® system fills this gap. Inventor users work in their usual environment and directly load related original files via the integrated ribbon menu for processing or display. Bidirectional metadata exchange between Inventor and SAP® avoids unnecessary manual data entry. A crucial benefit is the simple assignment of SAP® Material Masters to Inventor assembly structures as well as the automatic derivation of multi-level SAP® Bills of Materials. This guarantees consistent data structures and engineers gain more time for the real design process.

With the integration between SAP® Engineering Control Center and Solid Edge, assemblies, parts and drawings, including their dependent documents, are seamlessly managed as structures in SAP® PLM. All authorized users have access to the originals stored in a central,
secure area (single version of the truth) to monitor the development process or make changes. This eliminates redundant process steps.

There is no need for a separate Product Data Management (PDM) solution since the functionality of the SAP® system fills this gap. Solid Edge users work in their usual environment and directly load related original files via the integrated ribbon menu for
processing or display. Bidirectional metadata exchange between Solid Edge and SAP avoids unnecessary manual data entry. A crucial benefit is the simple assignment of SAP® Material Masters to Solid Edge assembly structures as well as the automatic derivation of multi-level SAP® Bills of Materials. This guarantees consistent data structures and engineers gain more time for the real design process.

With the integration between SAP® Engineering Control Center and SOLIDWORKS, assemblies, parts and drawings, including their dependent documents, are seamless managed as structures in SAP® PLM. All authorized users have access to the originals stored in a central, secure area (single version of the truth) to monitor the development process or make changes. This eliminates redundant process steps.

There is no need for a separate Product Data Management (PDM) solution since the functionality of the SAP® system fills this gap. SOLIDWORKS users work in their usual environment and directly load related original files via the integrated ribbon menu for processing or display. Bidirectional metadata exchange between SOLIDWORKS and SAP® avoids unnecessary manual data entry. A crucial benefit is the simple assignment of SAP® Material Masters to SOLIDWORKS assembly structures as well as the automatic derivation of multi-level SAP Bills of Materials. This guarantees consistent data structures and engineers gain more time for the real design process.

Optimal data consistency in product life-cycle management not only raises process security and product quality but also enables different departments and disciplines to work efficiently together. EPLAN is an experienced provider of solutions to meet the challenge of integrated data management through SAP® integration based on the SAP® Engineering Control Center (SAP® ECTR). By integrating EPLAN into SAP, product modelling is enhanced through ECAD data (e.g. connector lists, schematics for fluid power and electrical engineering, bills of material, EPLAN evaluations).
