Regardless of stage in the part lifecycle, it is critically important to maintain continuity of information.
Definition of continuity
a. uninterrupted connection, succession, or union
b. uninterrupted duration or continuation especially without essential change
It’s unavoidable: from design to procurement through quality, many people and many systems are involved. Data resides in systems that are “fit for purpose”. PLM systems may carry CAD/CAM drawings, ERP systems may maintain supplier master data and discrete performance data elements, QA systems may house scorecards, third-party systems may provide financial risk ratings, and more – all while your company is consistently collecting and integrating new data.
Regardless of stage in the part lifecycle, it is critically important to maintain continuity of information. Your good decisions rely on timely and accurate information.
Our customers demanded an efficient, smooth and stress-free integration into their systems to ensure that data managed within the part lifecycle syndicated with all other corporate processes. Whether a simple exchange of data, or a highly complex environment, they can easily exchange supplier master data, product/item data, material/product group information, supplier KPIs, risk indicators, drawings, contracts, and more.
WHAT YOU GET
WHY IT MATTERS
So that you leverage the technology that is best fit for the application. Options include: WS, RFC, BAPI, IDoc, etc.
So that you can maintain extra control over timing and security of data transfers. Options include:
• Synchronous integration, via webservices
So that you can leverage your existing employee master, with login, role(s), permissions, etc.
So that you can be assured that your confidential has been tamper-proof while in transit.
Push and Pull Options
So that you can decide how and when data gets exchanged. Further, you can reuse data within your own portals (e.g., pull and display workflow progress to a supplier, such an onboard approval status within your invoicing portal).
