HANNOVER MESSE 2018,

The seamless integration of all information and data from the entire product lifecycle, from the design and development of an object to manufacture and to the production processes, the logistics and ultimately the operation, all this results in the digital twin. This enables a new 360-degree view of the product. For this purpose, the data has to be managed in a homogeneous, consistent system from the first requirement sketches to ECAD and MCAD drawings to production data. The prerequisite here: a digital product lifecycle on the basis of modern software solutions. SAP Product Lifecycle Management, together with the strategic integration platform SAP Engineering Control Center (SAP ECTR), creates optimal prerequisites for the digital twin.SAP Engineering Control Center integrates authoring tools, software development tools and MS Office in SAP PLM. For all current MCAD and ECAD systems, direct interfaces are available, such as SAP Engineering Control Center interface to NX or SAP Engineering Control Center interface to ECAD. In this way, locally generated product data and documents become available company-wide and can be structurally managed, classified, versioned, and linked with SAP objects. An R&D cockpit with 2D/3D viewing delivers all the necessary information. Thanks to the digital twin, project teams constantly get an overall view of their product and the latest state of development. They are thus up to date as regards ongoing optimizations and adaptation to new environments and tasks. This speeds up coordination and considerably improves efficiency in all phases of the product lifecycle.
