SAP Engineering Control Center interface to SOLIDWORKS

With the SAP Engineering Control Center interface to SOLIDWORKS, 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. SOLIDWORKS users work in their familiar environment and directly save originals using the integrated ribbon menu. Bidirectional metadata exchange between SOLIDWORKS and SAP eliminates unnecessary manual data entry. Assignment of SAP material masters to SOLIDWORKS assembly structures as well as the automatic creation of multi-level SAP bills of materials happens with a simple push of a button. This guarantees consistent data structures and engineers gain more time for the real design process.

  • Document management system
