We let system boarders disappear

Time to market, lot size one, Industry 4.0, as well as company wide change and project management are key challenges that build up on SAP ERP data and process structures. The SAP product „SAP product data management integration to PTC Windchill“ enables your company with a seamless integration of your PTC Windchill system into SAP ERP.

Beside the automated exchange of development data, the focus of the integration of PTC Windchill into SAP lies on the integration of development processes. The SAP product data management integration to PTC Windchill enables a holistic PLM process across system boarders.

Benefit from software from a single source

The SAP product data management integration to PTC Windchill has been developed by .riess engineering for SAP. As official SAP price list product, you'll receive a deep integration of PTC Windchill directly into SAP ERP and PLM. Covered by software maintenance, the complete SAP support organization will take care of you.


Standard Use Cases: How do you work today?

The standard use cases divide between the „EPMDocument“ and the „WTPart“ scenario. If you're only working with CAD data and structures in PTC Windchill, the „EPMDocument“ scenario will provide you the full fletched integration of all required SAP objects based on your EPMDocuments.

If you already manage product structures in PTC Windchill, the „WTPart“ scenario is the right choice. SAP Materials, Bill of Materials, Document Info Records and other objects will be created and maintained based on your existing WTPart structures. Next to the classical change process that starts in PTC Windchill, the SAP product data management integration to PTC Windchill also enables a change process starting in SAP that then will be routed into PTC Windchill for execution. Independent of the chosen change process starting point, the finished change will be securely processed in SAP utilizing the SAP change number.
