As complexity of the product designs is increasing and development cycles are shrinking, engineering teams
are under tremendous pressure to deliver products on time. Engineers spend more than 30% of their time finding the right information while working on the products. Incorrect or obsolete
data that goes into the design phase of a product can cause costly changes later in the product development cycle.
So, the need for engineering teams to access enterprise information like cost,
lead time, compliance, etc. is becoming ever more important.
CassiniE2E™ is the engineering to enterprise integration platform that bridges these two business functions with easy access to information on both sides. It provides a unified framework to easily integrate any engineering system to any enterprise system.
CassiniE2E™ Integration Platform provides a plug-n-play architecture to connect engineering and enterprise systems through an extensible connector framework. The platform abstracts the common use cases and provides an integration platform which is agnostic of the end system on either side. User interface is provided to configure these connectors and provide any mapping information between the systems. The platform also provides a workflow editor and a scripting engine to customize business processes around these systems.
PLM is one of the most widely used enterprise system for product engineering. There are a number of vendors providing PLM solutions. The most common use cases around PLM for engineering are part information access, part numbering, bill-of-material synchronization, design archiving, change management, BOM redlining, compliance reports and document management.
Connectors are provided for the following PLM systems: Cassini PLM, Teamcenter, Agile PLM, Enovia, Windchill, Propel PLM, Aras Innovator, Arena PLM, SAP PLM & Autodesk PLM 360.
ERP Systems contain some data that is important for engineering like costs and lead time for parts and material. And like PLM, some times the bill-of-material has to be pushed into the ERP system for procurement. Configuration editor and a mapping editor is also provided to customize and map the data between the systems.
Connectors are provided for the following ERP systems: SAP, Oracle Fusion Applications, NetSuite, JD Edwards and Microsoft Dynamics.
For mechanical engineers information regarding their parts like latest revision, part numbers, lifecycle phases, cost, lead time, approved vendors, etc. is crucial for accurate design and bills-of-material. Engineers do not like to leave their environments to access this information. Our solution provides the best user experience for engineers with integrated user interfaces.
Connectors are provided for the following MCAD systems: SolidWorks, SolidEdge, NX, Creo, CATIA, Autodesk Inventor, AutoCAD and Onshape.
Electronic designs are becoming more and more complex in modern technology products. Whether in the schematic capture or PCB Layout, component information like part numbers, revisions, lifecycles, compliance data, etc. has to be provided during the engineering phase of the product development as per the product requirements.
Connectors are provided for the following ECAD systems: Altium Designer, DxDesigner, Expedition, OrCad, Concept and Allegro
Most CAD systems store their designs in a PDM system to manage their WIP data. Version management and design snapshots are managed in these PDM systems. When these designs are ready for release to PLM or ERP, information has to be pushed from PDM to PLM or ERP.
Connectors are provided for the following PDM systems: SolidWorks Manage, Workgroup PDM, Enterprise PDM, PDMLink, DMS and Teamcenter.
Software Components are becoming a norm in modern technology products. Whether in the form of firmware or embedded software or system on chip, software engineering is part of any mechatronics products. For example in autonomous driving software places a critical role in the systems development. Integrating Source Code systems with enterprise systems is as important as integrating MCAD and ECAD systems.
Connectors are provided for the following SCM Systems and IDEs: Git, GitHub, Subversion, Mercurial, Perforce, IntelliJ, Eclipse and Netbeans.
Number of systems provide a secure way to store and manage data in the cloud. Integration between engineering systems and these cloud applications or between these cloud applications and the enterprise systems provides a lot of value to both sides. Most of these integrations are focused at the document management level. Engineering documents like specifications, requirements, spreadsheets, etc. may be managed in these cloud systems. Some of these cloud systems provide a built-in version management and customers may have custom workflows to push data into these cloud systems.
Following cloud connectors are available: Google Docs, Google Drive, Microsoft Office 365, OneDrive, Sharepoint, Box and Dropbox.
