With the integration of Solid Edge into SAP Engineering Control Center, assemblies, parts and drawings, and their dependent documents are seamlessly managed as structures in SAP PLM. All authorized users have access to the originals stored in a central, secure area to monitor the development process or make changes, which eliminates redundant process steps.
There is no need for a separate product data management (PDM) solution, as the functionality of the SAP system fills this gap. Solid Edge users work in their familiar environment and directly save originals using the integrated ribbon menu. Bidirectional metadata exchange between Solid Edge and SAP eliminates unnecessary manual data entry.
Assignment of SAP material masters to Solid Edge assembly structures as well as the automatic creation of multi-level SAP bills of materials happens with the simple push of a button. This guarantees consistent data structures and engineers gain more time for the real design process.
