Integrate your Inventor product data into a single version of the truth
The availability of highly efficient integrations of CAD is a critical feature of PLM systems. With the integration between Inventor and SAP, assemblies, parts, and drawings are seamlessly managed as structures in SAP PLM. All authorized users have access to the originals stored in a central, secure area (single version of the truth) to monitor the development process or make changes. This eliminates redundant process steps.
The CIDEON SAP PLM Interface to Inventor makes Inventor design data available to the company at an early stage, when Product Lifecycle Management begins in the product development process. Direct coupling of CAD systems with SAP allows convenient management of data generated in CAD systems. Thus the information in the SAP ERP/PLM system is consistently available to all CAD and non-CAD users.
One User Interface to manage the Inventor data in SAP
Automated SAP object creation (SAP Documents, Materials and Bill of Materials) for simple data processing makes engineer’s life easier
Coordinated access to CAD objects
Versioning and status management for simultaneous work by multiple users (concurrent engineering) prevent inconsistencies or data loss
Reduce redundant workflows
All authorized users can follow the development process or have access to the Inventor data (originals or converted files) - stored in a central secure storage area
SAP PLM functions are directly embedded in Inventor – the familiar work environment of design engineers - via the “SAP Menu”, or accessed via the structural views in SAP CAD Desktop. Additional information windows display immediate SAP object and process information in Inventor.
