Brand new openSAP course ‘SAP PLM for Discrete Industries’

I am excited to announce the brand new openSAP course SAP PLM for Discrete Industries.

In this course, you will learn how SAP PLM helps you design and develop new products in Discrete Industries such as Automotive, IMC and High Tech. We will show you how SAP PLM turns ideas and requirements into new, innovative products. You will learn about the core development process, embedded in an end-to-end change management process. In addition, we will present how engineering BOMs can be handed over to production and operations, so that a seamless digital thread can be ensured, and how internal and external stakeholders can collaborate seamlessly.

You can access this six-week self-paced course here.

Which topics can you expect?

  • In week one we will give you an overview of SAP PLM in Discrete Industries and address the challenges of various industries by means of individual use cases.
  • In the second week we will address the define phase and see how innovations and requirements can be leveraged to develop products. We will also look at costing in an early phase and compliance.
  • In week three we will focus on the core development process. product structure and BOM management including changes will be addressed as well as how to integrate CAD data and external PLM systems. Also, we will give an overview of how SAP Teamcenter by Siemens can complement the SAP solution portfolio.
  • In week four, you will see how you can collaborate seamlessly with external suppliers, development partners and contract manufacturers.
  • In the fifth week, you will learn how to hand over an engineering BOM to downstream processes and how this data can be leveraged for example in the service and maintenance area. We will also show you how to set up, monitor and monetize digital twins.
  • The final week will touch on technical aspects and enable you to get started.

The course will be presented by experienced SAP colleagues and SAP partners and is primarily aimed at existing or future SAP PLM users, solution consultants, sales people, and business decision makers, but also at anyone involved in research and development in Discrete Industries.

I am looking forward to seeing you during the course.
