Latest version of Teamcenter delivers more PLM value for lower cost of ownership
• Diverse cloud partner base and expanded delivery options provide more PLM flexibility and scalability to new and existing customers
• Web-based Active Workspace user interface provides access to product information and processes to improve company-wide collaboration
• Breadth of solutions reach beyond engineering to drive overall business efficiency and performance
Siemens announces the latest version of the Teamcenter®portfolio, the world’s most widely used product lifecycle management (PLM) software. Teamcenter helps reduce the overall cost to manage and maintain PLM through cloud-based deployment options, while providing more convenient web browser access, on any smart device, along with tools to more easily manage and maintain the software itself. New and enhanced solutions extend the technical depth and business-solution breadth of the Teamcenter PLM portfolio, which enables customers to digitalize their business and make informed decisions based on the insights gained from a digital twin of the physical operation or product.
“With the latest version of Teamcenter, we’re delivering a modern, adaptable PLM system that is proven to change and grow with our customers as they face the challenges of industry and market disruption,” said Joe Bohman, senior vice president, Lifecycle Collaboration Software for Siemens PLM Software. “We’re focused on making Teamcenter more cost-effective to deploy and own, while extending access to more users with web-based solutions spanning across the product lifecycle. With this release, our customers will enjoy significantly faster performance across multiple sites – for example, up to 10 times faster data transfers, 5-10 times faster data synchronization, and increased throughout up to 2 million objects per hour.”
Teamcenter helps customers realize innovation through greater IT efficiency with modern, adaptable PLM deployment options. Deployment Center, a web-based installer, helps customers more easily manage Teamcenter spanning an unlimited number of environments. The new release offers full platform support, making it easier to set up a Teamcenter environment.
“America Makes Digital Storefront is a secure online platform for additive manufacturing delivered with Teamcenter on the cloud using Amazon Web Services,” said Joe Veranese, business systems manager for America Makes. “More than 215 member organizations access the Digital Storefront through Active Workspace, the easy-to-use web client for Teamcenter. It has been easy to configure and extend Active Workspace to make the information not just available, but consumable, so we can provide information to the membership quickly and without the roadblocks of other tools.”
Teamcenter gives customers more options to manage the cost of PLM ownership by partnering with a diverse cloud partner base, including Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services, and leveraging the cloud expertise of Siemens’ global managed services organization and channel partners.
“Joyoung has been named China's most influential small household appliance brand for eight consecutive years. Teamcenter brings together the product information and processes to drive our overall business performance,” said Jing Jin, PLM project manager, Joyoung. “The streamlined and intuitive PLM user experience of Active Workspace has made it easier for our executives to review and approve technical documents and manage our supply chain.”
Visualization is essential to cross-company collaboration, because it allows people to view and interrogate product designs with the industry standard 3D JT™ data format. Support for low cost virtual reality (VR) devices lets anybody step inside, interact with, and interrogate their products in an immersive environment. By adding the option of client-side graphics processing for Active Workspace users, Teamcenter helps reduces cost and improve performance of the collaboration between MCAD and non-MCAD users -- at a lower cost of ownership -- by taking advantage of existing hardware investments.
Teamcenter delivers ultra-fast, multi-site collaboration by speeding up the transfer and import of large amounts of product data with high throughput during replication and synchronization across sites.
Teamcenter extends web-browser access to more business solutions across the product lifecycle. The new Teamcenter Program Planning solution combines a top-down approach to program planning, determining what should be executed, with a bottom-up approach that validates what can be executed. New smart discovery capabilities for bill of material (BOM) management enable teams and individuals to quickly search and filter across massive amounts of data to find only what is required to fulfill a particular task.
Siemens PLM Software’s approach to Systems Driven Product Development (SDPD) and Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) brings together multiple design domains – mechanical, electrical, and software -- along with considerations like cost, reliability, and manufacturability. SDPD drives the entire downstream development/delivery process for continuous engineering throughout the entire cross-product lifecycle. Because Teamcenter understands how everything fits together, domain-specific decisions are always made with the big picture in mind.
