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.
