The initial situation

Originally, SwissOptic was not able to output documents from a construction or material BOM from the SAP DMS standard. The SAP standard system simply does not allow you to output documents from a structure. Instead, each individual document must be searched for, opened in the viewer and printed out.

In the course of the project, SwissOptic also introduced the SAP Engineering Control Center (ECTR). This resulted in the additional requirement to make the SAP output processes, newly introduced by SEAL Systems, available not only in the standard SAP but also in the ECTR.

SwissOptic uses SAP ERP 6.0 as an ERP system. All documents are managed by SwissOptic in SAP DMS. In addition to storing documents in the SAP DMS, links have been created between the document info record (DIR) and the material. The materials are in material BOMs, which can consist of several levels and a variety of materials..
