Westford, MA, USA and Munich, Germany, Dec. 14th, 2021 – Zuken, a global technology leader in digital engineering for electronic and electrical systems, announces the release of the « SAP Engineering Control Center interface to Zuken ».

Oliver Hechtl, Head Zuken Technology and Services Europe: « With the certified interface to SAP S/4HANA, organizations can leverage data from Zuken’s engineering solutions to support enterprise-wide digital business processes.”

The interface supports a bidirectional exchange of material master data and documents as well as CAD data and product structure information between Zuken’s electronic and electrical engineering systems, CR-8000/DS-CR and E3.series/DS-E3, and SAP S/4HANA. The integration enables data and metadata generated in Zuken’s tools to be used in company-wide business processes managed in SAP, such as concurrent engineering, module management, configuration management, component management, and change and release management.

In detail, the integration supports the following processes in both the Zuken and SAP domains:

  • Creation and exchange of component master data
  • Release of approved components and blocking of discontinued components
  • Exchange of manufacturing data, metadata, and parts lists between Zuken and SAP
  • Optional creation and alignment of product structures
  • Control of workflow and change processes.

The certified interface is based on the SAP Engineering Control Center | SAP ECTR software product developed by SAP Platinum Partner, DSC SOFTWARE AG, based in Karlsruhe, Germany. This is SAP’s standard integration platform for MCAD, ECAD and MS Office in SAP PLM. Following the successful certification through SAP, the Zuken interface is now available for purchase from SAP.

« The certification and addition of the SAP Engineering Control Center interface for Zuken to the SAP price list represents an additional element of investment security for our customers in a rapidly changing IT world,” said Oliver Hechtl, Zuken Head of Technology and Services Europe. « It provides our customers with the assurance that engineering data and information generated in Zuken’s best-in-class engineering software can be leveraged to support cross-enterprise digital business processes. »

Dominik Maier, Senior Vice President Products & Development and Authorized Signatory, of DSC added: “The direct integration for Zuken is another important milestone on the SAP ECTR roadmap. It demonstrates our continued commitment to expanding the integration capabilities of SAP ECTR, and, consequently SAP PLM, together with SAP and other key partners. We are very pleased that Zuken users can now take full advantage of the SAP ECTR direct integration.”
