SAP implementation projects usually require enhancements to the standard logic. This is valid for SAP PLM / PLM 7 as well as other functional solutions and modules. While the business requirement is clear prior to implementation, developers with the specific knowledge of the certain business functionality are hard to find.

Even experienced developers need a considerable time to learn about the specific interfaces, business objects, persistence and user interface functionality. Thus, every implementation project spends a considerable amount of time rather on educating the development staff, instead of developing the actual requirements.

Eventually the development staff is familiar with all interfaces and specifics. However, functionality still needs to be linked and consumed together to fulfill the project requirements. Another considerable amount of effort is spent on linking SAP standard functionality and creating service methods that provide the desired logical functionality.

The SophisTex Document Developer Framework does not only offer encapsulated standard functionality but also linked functionality with lots of logical enhancements, everything ready-to-consume in no time.
