Improving Product Development with SAP Engineering Control Center
Compact fans create air flows to keep things cool deep inside steel housing where delicate electronic components whirl 24×7. Without them, machines would overheat and chaos would result, to say the least. A big name in keeping electronic parts cool – and running – is German-based ebm-papst St. Georgen GmbH & Co. KG. Its production of the compact fan involves a complex process that spans managing investments, budgets, projects, and product master data. The SAP® Product Lifecycle Management (SAP PLM) application helps it empower stakeholders company-wide to collaborate on complex product change processes. To integrate the diverse CAD design tools it needed, ebm-papst leveraged the SAP Engineering Control Center integration tool, part of its SAP software environment.
