In this release of Teamcenter, support for the integration of business tools and the process has focused on three main areas.
First is the enhancement of existing enterprise integrations including Oracle® E-Business Suite (EBS) and SAP® solutions. The Teamcenter Gateway for Oracle EBS now links buy items to manufacturers and refers to the manufacturer part numbers in Teamcenter as well as in Oracle EBS and supports Oracle EBS version 12.2.7. The Teamcenter Gateway for SAP S/4HANA now supports SAP S/4HANA 1709.
The new integrations include Teamcenter Reporting and Analytics Gateway for SAP and Teamcenter Product Cost Management Gateway for SAP. The Gateway for Teamcenter Reporting and Analytics leverages the integration of Teamcenter Gateway for SAP S/4HANA. The knowledge gained using existing Teamcenter/SAP integrations can be re-used, helping provide a lower total cost of ownership. The new Teamcenter Product Cost Management Gateway for SAP provides a commercial off-the-shelf master data synchronization from SAP Business Suite and SAP S/4HANA to Teamcenter Product Cost Management. This integration enables you to re-use product variants from the ERP system to calculate similar products or new variants during the early stages of development.
To provide a streamlined and intuitive user experience, MCAD designers will be able to access the Teamcenter Gateway data in the Active Workspace window embedded in the native MCAD application. Supported by all the MCAD integrations (NX, Solid Edge, CATIA®, Creo®-Pro/ENGINEER®, SolidWorks®, Inventor® and AutoCAD®), you can easily search, access, and re-use information stored in Teamcenter, initiate data transfers in workflows or query and import information from enterprise applications like enterprise resource planning (ERP), manufacturing execution systems (MES), supply chain management (SCM) and customer relationship management (CRM) systems, all helping you make better decisions by accessing real-time data from SAP or Oracle solutions.
