SAP Rolls Out Product Data Management Software

Enterprise software vendor SAP today announced the availability in the Americas of its new product data management software, as well as the opening of a support center that offers consulting and training services for the new application.

Product data management software helps manufacturing departments manage their product-related data and associated processes required to design, manufacture, and maintain products throughout their entire life cycles. SAP says the product is integrated within its core R/3 suite.

The new software includes functionality for document management, engineering change management, parts management, and workflow for engineering processes. It also includes integration with SAP's logistics software, including production planning, plant maintenance, and service management. The product data management software can also be integrated with non-SAP applications, such as CAD systems.

SAP says it already has one customer for the new software. Storage Technology Corp., a provider of network computing storage in Louisville, Colo., went live with it last month. According to SAP, StorageTek expects the software to help it save time and money by allowing the company to generate fewer hard copies of documents, ship its products to market sooner with a decrease in scrap and rework costs, and receive its sales revenue more promptly.
