Custom Solutions of the Business Partner Connection

Business Partner connectivity solutions to Mercedes-Benz AG


Cooperation in product development between business partners and Mercedes-Benz AG takes place via the central EDM system (Engineering Data Management System) Smaragd. Via the external Smaragd Client (eSmaC), the business partner has access to Smaragd and can work directly in the system on decentralised simultaneous engineering projects.

With an eSmaC, business partners can edit and archive design data, similar to direct data access from the Mercedes environment. The CAD interfaces allow data to be transferred from Smaragd to Siemens NX and vice versa.

SSC installs and operates the eSmaCs on behalf of Mercedes-Benz and Daimler Truck AG. User support is provided by our eSmaC support.
