Product Overview

The PROSTEP V6 XPDM SAP Adapter is based on Dassault Systèmes’ V6 XPDM data exchange framework that connects V6 with SAP in order to synchronize data between both systems bi-directionally. The scope involved is the transfer of BOMs and product structures, including CAD files.

This product also allows updates to be performed in the backend systems using a controlled transaction management procedure to ensure data integrity. This includes locking, check-in/out, ownership transfer, versioning and transaction management. Process reliability and flexibility is ensured by the underlying PROSTEP OpenPDM technology.

The integration support several use cases such as:

  • PS – PS synchronization
    CAD design is performed in parallel in V6 and SAP with different responsibilities (e.g. modular separation).

  • BOM – PS synchronization
    The BOM structure is created and maintained in V6 or SAP, CAD design is performed in the other system.

  • BOM – BOM synchronization
    The BOMs are maintained in parallel in V6 and SAP with different responsibilities and tasks (e.g. separation of creation and approval).

Customer Benefits

  • The solution allows the integration of V6 and SAP using tried-and-tested standard software.

  • The use of standard interfaces and separate business logic makes the solution more independent of system upgrades and reduces the amount of effort involved.

  • Typical use cases are already covered "out of the box", and projects can be planned more reliably.

  • The pre-configured product software reduces ramp-up times.

  • Benefit from PROSTEP’s experience with integration and migration as well as from PROSTEP’s partnerships with Dassault and SAP.
