SAP Engineering Control Center interface to EPLAN
Optimized product development in electrical engineering
SAP Engineering Control Center Interface to EPLAN optimizes the development process in electrical engineering, pneumatics and hydraulics and enables an integration into PLM processes. Engineers have full access to SAP data, and all objects stored in SAP can be found easily via the template management or the extensive search options. This way, they can plan projects by reusing available objects and dragging them into their circuit diagrams rather than merely make drawings in their EPLAN tool and create circuit plans from scratch. The SAP integration of the EPLAN software supports engineers with versioning and release processes, as well as with protecting sensitive data using access rights. The EPLAN software is available in 19 languages and supports all global standards, thus facilitating cooperation among development teams across sites all over the world.
Full integration of electrical engineering into PLM
The EPLAN integration in SAP ensures a maximum consistency of data. Product models can be complemented in SAP with connection lists, circuit diagrams from electrical engineering and fluid power, plus evaluations made in EPLAN. All this increases product safety and product quality. Different departments and disciplines can cooperate effectively across sites and on a global level. SAP users from other divisions have access to the data in neutral formats.
