SDA Connector for Plant Maintenance, designed for SAP® PM, helps keep facility configuration data current, correct, and complete by synchronizing changes in the engineering design basis with the asset information in SAP PM.
SDA Connector for PM works with Hexagon PPM Information Management products, including Intergraph Smart Digital Asset, SmartPlant® Foundation, SmartPlant Enterprise for Owner Operators, and SmartPlant Fusion.
The connector is bi-directional. Tags and engineering change requests that originate in PPM solutions are sent as notifications to SAP PM. Similarly, the connector informs the PPM system when equipment is installed or uninstalled in SAP PM. This allows the two systems to keep the vital relationship between the tag, functional location, and equipment records in sync.
Once this data integration is in place, SAP PM users are able to view current engineering data and documents associated with a functional location from within SAP PM.
