ENOVIA PPR Hub STEP Part21 Adapter (STH) provides specific mappers required to perform STEP data exchange in STEP AP203, AP214 and PDM Schema 1.1 protocols. The mappers are to be employed with the ENOVIA PPR Hub Gateway (PGW) product, which supplies the STEP-based export/import infrastructure.
The PGW infrastructure consists of several components, each with a specialized function to perform on the exchanged data: extraction, validation, mapping and reconciliation. Activation or de-activation of these components results in an object-level custom exchange definition. For instance, an administrator may define that an exchange partner receive a complete BoM (Bill of Materials) along with all attached CAD documents, while another partner receive only the BoM. For further customization, CAA-RADE C++ Advanced Development configuration (CDC) is required to create new exchange components, for instance to receive legacy data migration.
STH also provides standard mappers for CDM and ENOVIAVPM migration to ENOVIA VPM. ENOVIAPM customers will require assistance from IBM/DS Service to perform ENOVIAPM to ENOVIA VPM migration.
Enhanced collaboration with the extended enterprise
use exchange standards such as STEP AP203, AP214, and PDM Schema to exchange assembly structures along with all associated 3D design data with suppliers and partners who might be using different product data management systems.
Data migration and re-use
use import mapping ENOVIAVPM and CDM delivered with this product to perform data migration to ENOVIA VPM. CAA-RADE C++ Advanced Development configuration (CDC) can be utilized to develop a custom mapper component (.exx file) to address other formats. A step-by-step batch command mode is available for performing mass data migration to VPM. This mode provides an administrator better control of the amount of data migrated in one batch and the content of the exchanged file as it progresses from one function to another (extract, validate, map, merge, etc). A detailed step-by-step migration guide is provided.
