Perfectly prepared for the new OFTP2 international communications standard thanks to SEEBURGER solutions
OFTP2 for CAD data exchange
With OFTP2, ODETTE is establishing a new international standard for exchanging data and standardizing both national and international communication in the automotive industry.
OFTP2 is enjoying great popularity as a transfer protocol for asynchronous data exchange. In order to tap the potential offered by OFTP2, many OEMs are currently rolling out OFTP2 solutions for exchanging CAD and engineering data on the international market. This means that OEM suppliers are having to convert to OFTP2 for CAD data exchange.
SEEBURGER offers the following solution variants for a fast, secure, and low-cost switch to OFTP2. A standardized solution enables all OEM systems to be connected, data to be sent from a workstation, or received data to be collected and processed.
The entry-level WIN:epx-compact solution enables CAD data to be exchanged simply and quickly via OFTP2. User-friendly, intuitive operation is a distinctive feature of the software. The desktop solution supports the ENGDAT/ENGPART packet assembly required for the automotive industry and is perfectly suited for you to install yourself. It can be expanded with numerous modules, such as Com-Secure, mail, and workstation clients.
With BIS:epx, SEEBURGER offers an ultramodern and flexible client server solution for the fast, simple exchange of CAD data. The user-friendly intranet application gives users browser-based access to all necessary construction and partner data. The data can be sent from every workstation with just a few clicks of the mouse. The application offers optional integration into CAD, PDM, converters, and quality inspection tools.
Portal expansion for BIS:epx
The expansion option BIS:epx-portal gives you 100% integration of all your trading partners with no need for your own ENGDAT/OFTP system. ENGDAT/ENGPART messages can simply be forwarded from the BIS:epx into the predefined partner mailboxes. The messages remain in the portal when sent to these mailboxes and are offered to the trading partner for download. What’s more, these external partners can create messages and send files to the internal users of the hosting company. The solution can be operated both internally in the company’s DMZ and externally as a SEEBURGER Managed Service.

For companies choosing not to invest in an OFTP2-compatible system, SEEBURGER offers the OFTP2:Clearing Service. Business data can be exchanged via this Managed Service with customers/partners who already use OFTP2. This enables companies to get off to a quick start with OFTP2, without having to invest in purchasing and maintaining their own OFTP system.
