The product development process is characterized by the use of a multitude of authoring systems to create product information. CAD, CAE, PDM, ALM, TQM, Word, Excel, Power Point, e-mail etc.
Integration of authoring systems
Against the background of increasing complexity in products and processes, the trend is moving away from monolithic PLM architectures to distributed systems. An integrating PLM solution must therefore be able to integrate the data from the individual authoring system in order to present a holistic picture of all information and processes.
4PEP Connect provides an open interface to connect any authoring system to 4PEP. Connectors are available for systems such as TeamCenter, Enovia V6 or WindChill. Corresponding integration scenarios are already shown in the 4PEP reference system.
With 4PEP Connect Desktop Integration, ILC provides a ready-to-run interface to the Microsoft world (Office, Outlook, Windows Explorer), with 4PEP Connect BI Extractor a solution for delivering 4PEP data to SAP BI/BW.
