Complex test equipment is usually not directly interfaced with SAP ECC 6.0/SAP PI; there is often an SDMS or specialized middleware in between. These can be interfaced with the SAP environment via QM-IDI. The integration of laboratory test equipment is always a challenge, and we can certainly help you with the implementation of these kinds of interfaces. The complexity of the advanced instrument integration setup differs from customer to customer. Naturally there is a recommended setup for SDMS and ELN in theory, but in practice, this setup may not actually be ideal. In reality, optimal instrument integration setup can only be designed individually for each customer.
