Connecting Worlds with CIDEON V6-SAP xPDM Interface

With the CIDEON V6 xPDM - SAP Interface, CIDEON provides a powerful, high-performance integration solution for connecting the world of SAP with the 3D EXPERIENCE system landscape. The integration synchronizes business objects (for e.g. Parts and structures, materials, BOM etc.) and processes (for e.g.change management, release scenarios etc.) on demand or fully automatically based on various system triggers, between 3DEXPERIENCE Platform and SAP and vice a versa.

As standard feature, CIDEON interface supports important PLM functionalities in the Dassault environment such as parts and BOM management in V6 Engineering Central and V6-VPM (CATIA V6). On the SAP side objects in Material Management such as Materials, Bills of Material with associated Change Master Records, Documents and Bills of Documents including status and maturity are supported. The interface is very flexible in terms of the Business objects mapping between the two systems and can be easily extended with many enhancement possibilities as per the business requirements.
