SEEBURGER products support the new ODETTE OFTP2 protocol with modern solutions for the efficient and secure exchange of engineering data.
The sheer versatility of CAD solutions can at result in highly complex product structures – hence the need for clear, detailed data management. In the automotive industry, there are also additional data transfer standards to be taken into account, including ENGDAT for the accompanying message, GZIP for compression and OFTP2 as the transfer protocol.
Although most PLM/PDM systems provide data exchange components, these solutions do not support VDA ENGDAT and ENGPART, something which is required by the automotive industry. Yet in terms of collaboration with partners, exchanging data using ODETTE File Transfer Protocol (OFTP2) with Engineering Data Message/Engineering Partner Data (ENGDAT/ENGPART is an important component of PDM systems. PDM-Integration for Engineering (CAD/CAx) and Product Data Exchange from SEEBURGER bridges this gap.
SEEBURGER’s OFTP/OFTP2-Routing Service is ideal for companies who don’t want to invest in an OFTP2-compatible system.
Complete solution for Engineering (CAD/CAx) and Product Data Exchange or single components (for e.g. BIS:EPX, SEE FX etc.) can optionally operated in SEEBURGER Data Center as a managed service.
