SAP ECTR interface to PTC Creo
SAP ECTR interface to PTC Creo is one of many integrations available on the market for design and/or authoring systems into SAP. The interface allows you to manage design data from PTC Creo Parametric (objects and structures) directly in your SAP Document Management.
The direct data management approach ensures seamless and non-redundant integration with your SAP PLM processes
(e.g., SAP Change Management Services) and your product structures in SAP ERP.
SAP ECTR interface to PTC Windchill
Note: This product meanwhile has been renamed to "SAP product data management integration to PTC Windchill". Please find all information here.
SAP ECTR interface to PTC Windchill allows the seamless integration of corporate CAD and PLM design processes from your PTC Windchill environment straight into your SAP system.
The solution builds on an innovative software architecture, which abandons the traditional use of middleware and instead relies on direct communication and automatic synchronization between PTC Windchill and SAP. This new approach ensures the swift and dependable processing of even large transaction amounts.
The interface supports bi-directional change processes for EPMDocuments and WTParts, regardless of whether they originate from PTC Windchill or SAP. All changes are safely and reliably tracked in both systems.
