How to manage the regulatory data import into specification database?

Hi experts,

We have a EH&S implementation project for a distribution company which has no other sap module and very limited scope.

They want to get the 3E data, compare and update and send/updates with vendors and customers and also inteface the data with AS 400.

They are not willing to use the Ariel ADM tool and any other additional licensing, due to limited scope.The 3E is sending the file in xml format. So the EH&S OCC connector could be used. but this again needs the use of ehs expert, which needs additional licensing and scope increase.

Does anybody worked on intergrating 3E data into specifications without usig ADM and OCC?

    Hi Milmuk,

    for EHS customers no additional licensing is required to use Expert or Open Content Connector (OCC) as both add-on applications are part of the EHS standard. Expert/OCC are included in the same setup kit and are sharing some libraries, but they are independent applications. I.e. you don't have to install/use Expert in order to be able to use OCC.

    Hello Milmuk

    in theory: if you know the EH&S data model you can "parse" the XML data stream (using XLST transformation etc.) to get a standard EH&S input file which can be used.

    In any case. you need to perform "mapping" (depending of phrases whch you have prepared etc.)

    As explained: EHS OCC is part of the license. To my knowledge: by seting up the OCC you will get a "file" (pdf or word) in which the use of OCC is explained. If you are "new here: it can take long to undertsand how to use the tool and to prepare the right set up etc.

    In my opinion: one of the "better" options in your case.

      Hi Milmuk,

      Why do not you use the OCC? OCC works with XML files.

      As Michael pointed out there is no additional licens needed.

      I think that the 3E programs might be using it as well....
