PLM Application Integration Platform

The Basic Engineering and Detail Engineering phases involve actions ranging from initial drafts to creation of comprehensive information on the components, assemblies, goods, products and operating materials and their production and procurement processes. These tasks are performed at corporate level in an array of engineering disciplines in collaboration with internal or external bodies.

The product data from development systems such as CAD, CAE and multimedia systems must then be transferred seamlessly to the PLM management system for bidirectional comparison where required. Our PLM Application Platform was designed for this purpose. Significantly accelerating the engineering process, it enormously simplifies the work of collecting and managing data for developers.

Dr. Maier CSS supplies thoroughly proven high-performance interfaces from companies’ typical engineering applications to Oracle’s Agile EDM (e6) and Agile PLM (A9) solutions.

The integration modules are available for all applications shown above and for Oracle’s Agile EDM (e6)  and Agile PLM (A9) solutions in the latest manufacturer releases.

We will be happy to present a Web session demonstrating the full scope of functions provided by PLM integration. Call us at +49 7244 947-100 or email us.

Further integration modules to other common 3D CAD systems and EDA systems can be supplied as standard solutions from our partners.

Developers see the big picture

The user-friendly, configurable Agile PLM Toolbar is opened from the main menu of the applications by clicking the Agile PLM menu (shown below).

The modern PLM Application Integration Platform has a clear and informative user interface. This interactive interface can be used to check any PLM-relevant data content in the application and to make any necessary changes, additions or corrections:

  • Edit document nomenclature
  • Assign a new or existing item
  • Check access rights
  • Set edit flag (reserve)
  • Check status, e.g. of elements in an assembly

The application’s main menu contains a plugin for the Agile PLM platform. The user-friendly, configurable Agile PLM Toolbar is opened by clicking this menu.

Documents can be loaded, stored or changed within an application. The Integration Platform’s user interface (UI) enables product data to be checked and edited before saving.

This interface can remain hidden in less complex applications such as MS Office. Here the integration processes run in the background, while users can always open the interface if they need to (Show & Manage). User access rights are verified for all actions involving loading and saving in and from the application.

In more complex applications such as CAD, users must be able to start the required PLM actions in their application. The Integration Platform’s UI therefore offers the following functions:

  • Loading a document from PLM
  • Saving to PLM
  • Showing assignments to other documents (e.g. assemblies)
  • Setting or showing assignments to items
  • Deriving a BOM from CAD and saving it in PLM

PLM interconnections are always displayed with up-to-date PLM data in the Integration Platform’s UI, as shown below.

Flexible Application Integration Platform

Our Application Integration Platform is based on a library of web services for interactive interconnection of PLM and IT applications.

Benefits are:

  • Fully configurable user interface
  • Fully configurable and flexible adapter technology
  • New versions of applications are handled by separate adapters
  • Adapters to/from other applications are unaffected
  • Cloud-based applications can be integrated where Web services are available
  • Oracle Agile EDM (e6) and Agile PLM (A9) are integrated into the Application Integration Platform.
