Variant configuration in SAP: Book available in December

Buch Variantenmanagement mit SAP - SAP Variant Configuration

Starting from December, 21st 2018 the new practical handbook in German about Variant Configuration in SAP will be available. There you will find over 700 pages with practical examples and solutions.

The book “Variantenkonfiguration mit SAP – Das Praxishandbuch” – written by Uwe Blumöhr, Michael Neuhaus, Marin Ukalovic and published by Rheinwerk Publishing– explains the processes, integrations and practical uses of variant configuration with SAP. It goes beyond the basics of product modeling, analyzing with practical examples the crucial aspects of modeling, pricing and variant projects.

DERWID shared the experience and knowledge about 3D visualization in SAP with the authors of the book.
In a dedicated chapter is described the state-of-the-art centralized solution for interactive, realtime visualization in SAP Variant Configuration. Here are some highlights.

The advantages of 3D visualization in SAP

It was possible to clearly identify the advantages of the integration of 3D visualization in SAP.
The 3D visualization supports the offer and order processes. In fact, the dynamic and graphical presentation of a variant product creates a significant added value.
Furthermore, there is an increase in the productivity of a SAP VC user. Mainly because data maintenance, also 3D data, is centralized to reduce double work.
This all leads to an improved user experience and maintenance speed and therefore greater efficiency.

An outlook to future trends

Thanks to the open architecture of such solutions, there are some interesting developments imaginable for the near future.
First of all, the integration with external object libraries, that could improve the visualization experience for some sectors.
Then, also applications within virtual reality – to be used in the B2C sector but also in B2B for technical services – are already in the process of becoming standards. And finally, imagine a far more interactive user experience with augmented reality.

A look back: variant configuration conferences – DERWID presents innovative solutions

variant configuration conferences

In June, during two conferences, DERWID informed about current approaches and innovative developments around the topic graphical product configuration and visualization of variant and complex products.

Smart Variant CON 2017

On 19th and 20th June in Titanic-Chaussee Hotel in Berlin took place the – yet very important – meeting organized by we-conect on the topic variant configuration and complexity management.

Also this year DERWID participated to the conference as Business Partner. Within the moderation of an icebreaker session and with an info stand, DERWID presented current trends around visualization and graphical configuration of variants. In particular, the graphical visualization integrated in SAP Fiori UI5 had a real positive feedback.

The combination of practical lectures and interactive elements characterized the conference and gave access to more than 250 participants to an overview on the latest trends and opportunities of variant configuration, such as the integrated 3D visualization technologies of DERWID.

We are looking forward to the exchanges and networking of next year, when Berlin will be again for two days the center of the variant-community.

 

Sybit Infotag Variantenkonfiguration

Meanwhile, SAP users and partners met on 29th June in St. Leon-Rot, on invitation of Sybit GmbH and SAP, for the 10th Infotag Variantenkonfiguration – an information day about variant configuration. DERWID presented within a lecture the current and future solutions for the visualization of variants integrated to SAP ERP applications.

DERWID’s solution landscape adapts perfectly to the strategy of Walldorf: to offer through partner solutions user-friendly and innovative customer systems in the field of 3D visualization. It adapts specially considering SAP cloud solutions and the focus on deep integration, easy handling and efficient maintenance.

Together with the partner MSG.treorbis DERWID informed about the latest 3D integrated visualization for the SAP Fiori UI5 web based user interface.

We would like to thank Sybit, MSG.treorbis and SAP for a successful, informative and special event around the topic variant configuration.
