Eplan and Teamcenter Launch Expanded Interface

Nov. 3, 2014
An advanced interface between Eplan and Teamcenter has been launched. The interface includes bi-directional catalog part synchronization of the E-CAD and PLM part libraries. Synchronizations can be set either regularly or on demand. The new integration includes functions for creation and update of parts data and supports the latest Teamcenter releases.
Eplan and Teamcenter's expanded interface software offers increased functionality, including catalogue part synchronization and expanded support for Teamcenter releases.
The catalogue part synchronisation allows Eplan's parts database to be matched with the data in Teamcenter. While the previously integrated functionality – announced one year ago – has been well received, users have been eagerly awaiting the electrical engineering interface between Eplan and Teamcenter. Project data from Eplan Platform can now be worked on directly in Teamcenter. The integration module for Teamcenter seamlessly embeds Eplan Platform solutions into the PLM environment. Electrical engineering has now become a component of the digital product model. E-CAD data such as connection lists, bills of materials and Eplan reports complete the product model.The interface covers the essential requirements of Design Data Management. The integration of Teamcenter functionality in the Eplan user interface means that users can easily access Teamcenter from their familiar working environment. The Eplan integration for Teamcenter supports Eplan Versions 2.2, 2.3 and shortly 2.4 as well as Versions 9.1 and 10.1 of Teamcenter.
