Enable true PLM: SAP PLM Infodays 2021
On May 18th and 19th, 2021 the virtual SAP PLM Info Days 2021 took place under the motto Ready for next-level PLM. In our role as SAP Platinum Partner and development partner for the two SAP solutions "SAP Engineering Control Center interface to PTC Creo" and "SAP product data management integration to PTC Windchill", we helped shape the agenda of the event.
CAD data management in SAP or preferably PTC Windchill? What is the right choice for your company?
During the presentation Enable true PLM: Seamless integration of PTC Creo and PTC Windchill with SAP software, Denis Gierich (Innovation & Business Development, riess engineering) demonstrated the challenges of connecting the engineering world with the ERP world in SAP. The core of the presentation was to show the integration options for your company focusing on enabling true PLM. A holistic product view that enables a real digital twin and brings together all information from the PTC world with information from the SAP world and makes it available company-wide.
The SAP Engineering Control Center interface to PTC Creo was presented in a brief overview. A SAP product that enables you to manage PTC Creo Parametric files and structures completely in SAP. Using the SAP Engineering Control Center, SAP material masters can be created and linked to the CAD data, and bill of materials can be created at the push of a button. The result is a “single source of truth” in a single system that makes all objects and structures directly available to SAP that are required for any subsequent process.
In the next part of the presentation it was demonstrated how even companies that do not rely on fully integrated CAD data management in SAP can implement real PLM. With the help of the bidirectional SAP product data management integration to PTC Windchill, the SAP pricelist product for the integration of PTC Windchill and SAP, all data, objects and structures can be generated in SAP in order to provide the necessary fundamentals seamlessly for all SAP processes.
At the end it was shown that as a company you can find the best solution for PLM and that you can use all important subsequent processes in SAP regardless of the CAD data source.
Customer presentation: SAP product data management integration to PTC Windchill
Under the title Model-centric PLM through company-wide data consistency, Dr. Ing. Johannes van der Beek (Group Director R&D / Design & Engineering, MOSCA GmbH) demonstrates how MOSCA GmbH revolutionized the PLM systematics with the coupling of PTC Windchill and SAP S/4HANA. As a machine and plant manufacturer, the foundations for a model-centric way of working were realized. The workflow-supported plant and change processes ensure high master data quality.
