Optimized engineering processes with end-to-end CAD and Platform Integration in SAP - cenit CONNECT Integration

CENIT has more than 30 years of industry experience in consulting and implementing engineering projects related to the integration of CAD authoring systems and business platforms in SAP. We have been a SAP® and Dassault Systèmes® development partner for many years, and we place great value on secure, fast project success.

It does not matter whether you nedd a SAP integration of CATIA V5, CATIA V6 or 3DEXPERIENCE®: CENIT has the relevant know-how and the appropriate software solutions to implement digitally integrated PLM processes.

SAP Integration to CATIA V5

The professional integration of the CAD authoring system CATIA V5 into SAP is essential for the realization of an integrated product development processes based on the single-source-of-truth principle. This is a requirement that all companies that use or want to use CATIA V5 and SAP.

A large number of our customers already use the CATIA V5 - SAP integration and rely on CENIT's competence for SAP and Dassault Systèmes software solutions. This applies to consulting and implementation as well as to long-term support after successful project implementation.

SAP Integration of 3DEXPERIENCE® and CATIA V6

Based on many years of integration experience of Dassault Systèmes software solutions in SAP, CENIT offers SAP integrations for the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and CATIA Version 6.

Repeated, bidirectional exchange of product data between DS V6 and SAP is naturally the key requirement for an integration product. The real benefits can be seen in process integration — that is, the exchange of process data and the option to manage business processes across applications.


Core functions of the 3DEXPERIENCE-SAP Integration:

  • Synchronization of product data such as documents, parts master data, product structures, BOMs, graphic representations etc.
  • Synchronization of production data such as work schedules, network plans, production aids etc.
  • Synchronization of process data such as process ID, project ID, status, maturity, change number, change master data etc.
  • Synchronization of lifecycle data. A large part of the data synchronization is performed in the background. The integration synchronizes the data for the defined process events according to a data mapping configuration. This results in reliable, high-quality data in both, the SAP and the DS V6 system environments, and eliminates duplicated data entry and routine tasks.


Regardless of whether you want to integrate CATIA V6 with SAP, whether you require a fully configured CATIA V6 solution with SAP for numerous product development processes or whether you "simply" want to maintain SAP master data of Dassault Systemes software — our integration solutions can be adapted to your business needs.

Apart from integrating the mechanical design, electronic design plays an increasingly important role. For upgrading to a SAP-based mechatronics solutions, we offer integration products for all relevant PCB design systems. Solutions for Mentor Graphics, Cadence, Zuken and Altium are available.

Access to Practical Knowledge Is Key

CENIT has been one of the world's most successful business partners of Dassault Systèmes for the last 30 years. Our international teams are the perfect partner to provide optimum support to your globally distributed development team.

Irrespective of whether you are integrating CATIA with SAP or whether you want to set up iterative development processes with customers and suppliers within a supply chain, our CATIA–SAP integration offers you an easy start-up and scalable upgrade options.

As a development partner of Dassault Systèmes and SAP, we coordinate development plans for the SAP integration of CATIA with our partners' development plans on a regular basis. This ensures that the integration stays in line with the further development of your business solutions, and protects your investment.
