How to plot data on shop floor or work floor image or diagram

I have a requirement to plot data on a shop floor or work floor image or diagram.

Simple example like visualizing on a shop floor diagram where the most products are sold.

I've seen this do well with other product for gaming floor visuals, showing the most profitable slots on a gaming floor diagram.

I can use BO cloud, Lumira or design studio. Does anyone know if it's possible with any of these tools? or is their another possibility with any other tool we could link to?

      Hi Tammy,

      Assuming it's a Lumira extension, any idea where I might find it?

      I've created VDS file by loading an autocad file in VE Author but I cannot find any information on what the next step is.

    Thanks Tammy,

    It looks great, now if only I could find any documentation on how to. I'm not sure where to start.

    So there is Viewer, Author, Link and Generator

    I have downloaded Viewer and Author(thinking this is where I create the image of a floor plan with Layers.

    Now I'm stuck and also don't see how to link to Lumira.

    Any help on steps to be taken would be greatly appreciated, I'm probably on the wrong path already.

    All I could find so far is someone else asking the same question but unanswered.

    Firstly, a CAD file will need to be transformed into a visual enterprise 3D model using the ‘generator’ tool (this is outside of Lumira). This solution works with SAP ECC system or S/4 HANA.

    What is being shown in the youtube vid (Feb 2015), is a Lumira chart-extension that was custom-developed to work with that specific HANA view.

    However, the information on the wiki suggests to me that this early Lumira extension was a proof-of-concept, that has been superseded by a native ‘Viewer’ (which is now nothing to do with Lumira client tool).

    Interestingly, the documentation does state that there is an (Xcelsius flash) Dashboards ‘add-on’ for BI4.1 Platform. but i haven’t personally tried this.

    I’ll try get some responses here from the technical authors.

    Cheers, H

    Thanks Henry,

    I get the converting of a CAD file and did that with Author(The client tool) I don't have the whole client server generator installed and shouldn't need I believe as I'm not using SAP ERP or S/4 Hana.

    It's the extension shown is that I was hoping to find. Guessing it's merely linking the graphic component IDs to data holding the relevant IDs

    I have the viewer installed, I had assumed that the Lumira ext was possibly calling this as Lumira doesn't have the ability.

    Here is also a Japanese article from 2014 saying they did it (Translated to English, see SAP Lumira application example ② on the page.⪯v=search

    So there is an Add-on for BO Dashboard to integrate visual enterprise viewer but I'll never get that to fly with these clients.

    Lumira 2.0 is what we were aiming for, following Tammy's roadmap summary which is very useful.

    I had my hopes up for a while that it might be possible.

      Or BO Cloud of course, much prefer if that was possible.

      Any info at all is appreciated.

      SAP locally are doing what they can to work with and find information so we can work toward a solution but there seems to be a huge knowledge gap/huge amount of confusion.

      I will post whatever I find,
