MONTREAL, Canada, CLEVELAND, Ohio and MUNICH, Germany, January 27, 2005 - Polyplan Technologies, the thought leader in collaborative Manufacturing Process Management (cMPM), and a participant in the SAP shop floor partner program, today announced it has joined the elite group of SAP Partners to achieve “Powered by SAP NetWeaver” certification, which designates products that enable convenient deployment on SAP Web Application Server and are iView-accessible.
With Polyplan’s cMPM Powered by SAP NetWeaver, SAP customers will be able to streamline their design-to-production process by using the most efficient real-time visual manufacturing process planning system integrated with their SAP R/3® and mySAP PLM solutions. Customers can significantly enhance their SAP New Product Development and Introduction (NPDI) initiatives by systematically driving manufacturability, by controlling the manufacturing impact of changes and by reducing the ramp-up and production time and costs on the plant floor.
By allowing SAP customers to have an early look at the federated design work from multiple CAD/PDM systems, and staying in tune with engineering changes without the need to raise formal engineering change requests (ECRs) and engineering change orders (ECOs), they will start planning their manufacturing processes earlier, including the creation and maintenance of manufacturing BOMs, routings and rich 3D visual work instructions, service instructions, retrofit instructions, all the while reducing ECRs/ECOs by 50-75%.
Being able to evaluate and manage the impact of product changes on manufacturing processes, time and costs before and after baseline certification/system delivery is crucial for manufacturers in all industrial sectors, and especially for the aerospace and defense industries and other complex product manufacturers.
“Polyplan offers the best-of-breed collaborative MPM solution for SAP customers focused on NPDI,” said Robert Beauchemin, President and CEO, Polyplan Technologies Inc. “For SAP customers, this means an easy way to transform engineering information from multiple CAD/PDM systems into manufacturing information needed by their SAP systems and their shop floor workers.”
Polyplan has been a member of the SAP Software Partner Program since 2001, when its Polyplan solution was first interface-certified for SAP R/3.
