We integrate your Software Engineering tool chain with your operations in ALM/ PLM/ERP/MES and diagnostic tools/flash stations – packaging your software and parameter data the way it is needed at downstream process events: Production & service, on & offsite, onboard & offboard. By this you gain full control and traceability of the effective software configuration along your processes.
Request our whitepaper to understand more about challenges and opportunities in reagrds to lifecycle management of Embedded Software.
P&PM helps you designing and implementing solutions to manage software parameters: Definition of valid parameters / parameterizations, execution of mass parameterization in Production (using ODX or IODD for instance, integrated into your SAP Variant & Order Management) or technical clarification / effectivity control of software functions via parameter in aftersales (Software as a Product).
We are experts in managing the data for parameter events - integrated in your operations.
Request our whitepaper explaining challenges and opportunities in regards to software parameter management.
This video provides an overview on best practices to manage device / machine parameter data at diverse business events.
Import of native device parameters based on industry standards (I/O-Link with IODD, ODX)
Offline Engineering of software functions of sensors, machines, assets or complex products
Integration of software functions with relevant business logic (variant logic of ERP for instance)
Definition of rules and constraints to automize / control parameterization processes especially during service events
Micro-service based architecture running on cloud platforms (cloud foundry)
Diverse integration options via REST and OData based APIs (ALM / PLM / ERP / MES / Diagnosis Tools / IoT-Hubs)
Watch a short video explaining the benefits and a preview to the Device Parameter Manager.
P&PM implements solutions for order specific generation and delivery of software packages to shop floor flash stations – including fault & exception management procedures. We integrate different sources for parameterization like ALM/PLM/ERP (customer order data for example) as well as test bench results as input for device configuration processes in line with software delivery.

Diagnostic trouble code are rarely considered as crucial - however not controlling their growing complexity leads to significant efforts along the value chain.
P&PM helps you in designing and implementing solutions in SAP / Cloud to manage fault & status codes together with the relevant measures and instructions. Our expertise in regards to software parameter management helps you defining rule based patterns to automatically determine the right measures depending on the fault code and the configuration / parameterization of your device.
P&PM designs and implements solutions to write Digital Type Plates (Characterization of the product, retrievable from the device) at Production & Service events and to capture the As Built / As Maintained Configuration of Software and Parameters into a Digital Twin (central / cloud based reference of your products/assets) - based on industry standards like ODX, IODD / OPC UA for instance.
Digital Twins & Type Plates can be leveraged at diverse business events: Technical clarification during after sales events as well as installation processes or restore events of complex devices in the field.
