Connection to ERP / PLM / PDM / DMS / CMS systems
Standard interfaces of PARTS-PUBLISHER enable the integration of all common ERP systems, for e.g.
- Bäurer B2
- ID Edwards
- Infor (Baan)
- SAP ERP, SAP R/3, SAP R/2
- MS Dynamics NAV (Navision), MS Dynamics AX (Axapta)
SAP-integrated solutions can be realised both for catalogue creation and order processing.
Catalogue creation (integration of PARTS-PUBLISHER and SAP ERP or PLM)
The solutions range from semi-automated solutions with manual interventions through to fully automated solutions with which spare parts catalogues are produced at the touch of a button or also automatically from the SAP ERP or PLM system. The editorial of the catalogues can be effected in SAP or PARTS-PUBLISHER, depending on requirements. The following scenarios are possible:
- Catalogue editorial in SAP ERP
- Catalogue editorial in PARTS-PUBLISHER
In all cases the data, structures and documents in SAP are used directly for the automated catalogue creation with PARTS-PUBLISHER without duplicate data retention.
PARTS-PUBLISHER is SAP-certified and has a SAP-certified OCI interface (Open Catalogue Interface), which simplifies the connection to E-Business processes. Thanks to the existing standard interfaces, integration in SAP ERP, SAP PLM, SAP CRM, SAP SRM and SAP E-Commerce is relatively simple.
SAP-certified OCI interface (Open Catalogue Interface):
Simple connection to E-Business, E-Procure and E-Service (remote service) systems (for e.g. SAP E-Commerce, Intershop, ClickCommerce, etc.)
SAP-certified SRM interface (Supplier Relationship Management):
Simple connection to SAP SRM systems to simplify procurement processes for suppliers and customers
CoCreate MM Connector:
Standard interface which integrates CoCreate Model Manager with PARTS-PUBLISHER. This interface enables the direct creation of spare parts catalogues from Cocreate Model Manager.
Order processing (integration of PARTS-PUBLISHER and SAP E-Commerce for SAP ERP)
The solutions range from semi-automated solutions with manual interventions through to fully automated solutions. With the latter spare parts orders, which have been initiated online via the PARTS-PUBLISHER catalogue integrated in SAP E-Commerce, are transferred automatically to SAP ERP and further processed there. Order processing including the creation of order confirmation, delivery note and invoice is also automated in ERP.
Standard interfaces of PARTS-PUBLISHER enable the integration of all common PLM, PDM and/or DMS, CMS systems, for e.g.
- Agile PLM (formerly Axalant)
- Keytech PLM
- Model Manager
- Windchill PDMLink
- Schema ST4
- GDS Docuglobe
- EMC Documentum
