Often a PLM system close to the CAD is used in the design department, while for the distribution in the company another system is established. The only system on the market that allows the exchange of data between several PLM systems is UNIPLOT. For example, you can search and print documents from the SAP® surface while the originals are in reality in Teamcenter. Or you can read metadata, copy files, rasterize files, entering a new record in SAP® and assign raster file to a record during a status change in Teamcenter or SmarTeam. Whatever your workflow is organized - UNIPLOT supports and accelerates these processes in all scenarios. (In the scenarios described below, the term PLM system represents one of the following systems: Teamcenter, Smarteam or Agile)
Scenario 1: You manage drawings and documents in the PLM system, until they are released. When sharing a conversion takes place in a long-term format. In the SAP system, a document master record is created from the metadata of the PLM system automatically and a long-term copy of the drawing of this document is stored.
Scenario 2: You manage both the original CAD files as the long term formats also in the PLM system. In company-wide ERP system, you create only documents master records. All employees who work with the ERP system can look for the drawings and documents and display them on UNIPLOT and plot them while the files are retrieved from the PLM system.
Scenario 3: You manage drawings and documents in multiple systems. With UNIPLOT a simultaneous search is possible in all systems, so that one set of documents can be placed together out of all systems. This is especially interesting when data is migrated over a certain period.
