Use Cases


The SAP interface SAP ECTR interface to AutoCAD provides redundancy-free CAD and ERP integration. You can then easily link separate design and development disciplines while having an easy-to-use technical bridge between engineering and commercial operations. Find out more about potential fields of application here.


Automatic Product Data Integration

Simplify the creation and management of product data in SAP. Save manual effort by automatically and securely transferring AutoCAD Mechanical product data, such as files and article information, as well as BOMs to SAP.

 

Data Consistency Using a Single Source of Truth (SSoT)

Benefit from having a single source of truth, the strongest argument for achieving product data consistency. Use identical data across departments for all employees involved in product creation. Ensure early CAD information availability in SAP and respond even faster to customer or supplier inquiries.


Benefits


Benefit from the advantages provided by the SAP Engineering Control Center (ECTR), an end-to-end SAP standard integration platform developed by engineers for engineers. The SAP ECTR can be used regardless of whether you are running SAP as an on-premise installation or SAP Cloud applications. See the other benefits for yourself.


No Media Discontinuities

Use integrated SAP PLM functions and benefit from eliminating media discontinuities when managing AutoCAD Mechanical data, and access relevant SAP PLM/ERP information directly and without redundancy.

Faster Data Navigation

Use an intuitive Windows®-like window interface to navigate product structures and detailed information. Perform SAP transactions easily using context menus and work with drag & drop in SAP. A Google-like search is available for quick searching and finding.

Better Communications

Improve communications between individual departments such as engineering, purchasing, manufacturing, sales and service, and external service providers, for example, by automatically displaying CAD neutral formats using the integrated SAP 3D Visual Enterprise Viewer included in the standard system.
