2D and 3D visualisation to transform SAP PLM environment

Graphical visualisation software firm Right Hemisphere’s 2D and 3D technology is being licensed by SAP for use in its PLM (product lifecycle management) solution.

Right Hemisphere CEO Michael Lynch says his Deep Server system will serve as the standard for viewing, collaborating and publishing graphical product data for SAP’s next application release, due to ship later this year.

“For a little over a year now, we’ve been marching down a path of closer co-operation and integration with SAP,” says Lynch.

“We have the foundation in place to deliver exceptionally high value to SAP’s customers… We see an enormous opportunity to unify key product data and eliminate some of the inefficiencies and duplication of effort that occur downstream.”

What it means for users is a new, holistic and very visual ‘anytime, anywhere’ view of product data that includes pricing, ordering, support and service information – because Deep Server can automatically merge visual data from engineering and text-based business data from SAP.

It can extract and receive CAD metadata, BoM (bill of materials) structures and CAD geometry files stored in SAP PLM – then generating lightweight 3D product models, combining these with associated ERP product data, generating graphic derivatives and collaborative 3D documents, and importing all of those back into SAP PLM.
