SAP® Engineering Control Center interface to Autodesk® Inventor®
SAP® Engineering Control Center (ECTR)
SAP® Engineering Control Center (ECTR) offers the basis for supporting "live engineering" - the SAP strategy for digitizing products and product development processes.
With SAP ECTR SAP provides end-to-end management of consistent data from the engineering disciplines including mechanics, electronics, software development, and simulation within their own PLM solution in an efficient work environment.
SAP ECTR provides increased ease of use for all CAD and Office sources. The simple, intuitive data navigation supplies a comprehensive overview of all required information, such as SAP objects like Documents, Materials and Bill of Materials, etc., and offers quick and easy access to central information, data and processes.
Simplify the structured processing of product development data by:
a familiar look and feel for all users
easy handling of SAP, even for new user
context sensitive pulldown menus
symbols for meaningful and quick information
Make engineer’s life easier with an simple and intuitive Windows® Explorer®-like user interface that provides designers with an optimal working environment
Provide a holistic view of all product information
and ensure smooth transition between processes through up-to-date and consistent, enterprise-wide product data
Develop standardized products at lower costs
at a competitive level, shorten innovation cycles and achieve higher product quality
SAP functions can directly be executed in Inventor via ‘SAP ECTR’ menu, or directly accessed in the SAP ECTR user interface. Here, any Inventor model structures, drawings and references can be processed as SAP Documents and Bill of Documents, Material Master, BOM’s, Functional Locations, and many more objects by using SAP PLM processes and features, such as SAP Engineering Change Management, status management or classification.
