To make a great product you have to make thousands – maybe millions – of decisions. It is not just the major milestones that are important: it is precisely all small decisions that together determine the result. Everyone in your organization can make a decision at any time that makes a difference in the success or failure of a product. Add to this the complexity of your product portfolio. Teamcenter® simplifies the company-wide decision-making process and offers a solution for companies that have to deliver increasingly difficult products in less and less time.
The benefits of Siemens Teamcenter®
- Save time with a faster time-to-market
- Improve the quality through verification
- Increase your sales and lower your costs
Connection between different disciplines
As technology becomes more advanced, electronic and software components are just as essential as mechanical components. Yet the connections between knowledge areas are all too often overlooked until late in the development phase. The proven platform possibilities of Siemens Teamcenter® offer you a strong PLM basis. This way you communicate clearly about the details in every development phase.
With Siemens Teamcenter® you make the complex simple
When placing a product on the market, you take into account many different factors. From best practices and formulas to legal requirements, environmental impact costs and quality. Product lifecycle management (PLM) brings all product information and processes together in one centralized system. This system-driven approach forms the digital thread in your product development process, from concept and implementation to use.
Start with PLM
For most of our customers, the first step on the PLM path is to gain control over product data and processes. Within Teamcenter® you manage and share mechanical, electronic, software and simulation data, as well as documents and parts lists in one environment. You can also use standardized workflows and change processes to streamline your organization. Siemens Teamcenter® supports cloud implementation, so that you can implement part or all of your PLM computer infrastructure on an external cloud service provider. This approach makes a quick and flexible implementation of Teamcenter® possible without major investments in advance. You then dynamically scale the infrastructure if necessary.
Transform step by step
You can gradually increase the value of your PLM system and thus connect technology with production and service. For example, you add suppliers to your environment, whether they use Teamcenter® or not. PLM can help you take your business to the next level. In addition, you can easily control product costs, quality and sustainability initiatives. Teamcenter® can be deployed at one location or on a global scale. The open and extensible platform of Teamcenter® grows with you as your needs change over time.
Easy to manage and validate
Teamcenter® helps you gain control over multi-CAD and multi-domain design processes. You manage mechanical, electronic, software and simulation data from one secure source. The Teamcenter® platform is a solid foundation with powerful core capabilities. You can protect, merge and reuse the intellectual property of your company. In addition, you simply validate the quality and completeness of design data before it is released for production. You can opt for flexible implementation options (on-premise, cloud and Teamcenter® Foundation) and use an intuitive PLM user experience with Active Workspace.
Waterproof document management
Do you want to optimize your documentation? Siemens Teamcenter® offers easy-to-use document management and technical authoring and publication tools. For example, you create and manage documents with your trusted Microsoft Office package, but from now on always in accordance with the agreed product development processes and data control protocols of your organization. This helps you build one source of product development knowledge. Document management includes version and revision control, workflow, data links to product data, print controls for watermarks and stamping, and change management. Advanced authoring and publication with XML makes the creation of structured documents, such as parts catalogs and service manuals, easier.
Intuitive for everyone
Teamcenter® offers a streamlined and intuitive PLM user experience for a wide range of users. Too much time is often wasted on digging through information outside the scope of a project or issue. With Teamcenter®, every user has secure access to a customized bill of material view that is relevant to their role and tasks. Teamcenter® helps experienced users, such as technicians and designers who need access to advanced PLM capabilities, to perform complex and demanding tasks. Managers, sales or marketing team members always need easy access to the right data, everywhere. For this, Active Workspace offers access to Teamcenter® on any computer via a web browser. This way your team will find what they need faster, they can see the big picture and make smarter decisions.
Your intellectual property is always protected by the best security. This also includes support for rigorous initiatives such as export control, International Traffice in Arms Regulations (ITAR). Other options such as integrated material management, classification, collaboration, reporting and analysis ensure a robust and future-proof PLM basis.
Improve your service activities
Satisfying customer demand is a prerequisite for success, but can be challenging if the customer’s requirements are only documented in stand-alone documents that are difficult to find or outdated. In addition, the lack of a common product knowledge base inhibits an efficient service based on lifecycle management. Consider ordering the wrong parts, lowering the “first-time resolved ratios” or many unnecessary service calls. With Teamcenter® you set up a database to support service and product engineering. With the aim of drastically improving all your service activities.
Siemens Teamcenter® connects technology with production
A changing market demand, increasing competitive pressure and limited resources require continuous improvement of your production processes. For that you need new strategies to streamline processes, increase productivity and at the same time monitor quality. With Teamcenter® you manage business processes, from the earliest design stages to the actual production launch and beyond. Teamcenter® gives you a competitive advantage because you optimize and synchronize production deliverables. This helps you better manage the costs of the total life cycle.
Through corporate mergers and acquisitions, large companies often work in global teams of partners and suppliers. Fantastic products are increasingly being digitally designed and validated using a globally distributed supply chain. Suppliers and OEMs from all over the world work through our easy-to-use collaboration solution with accurate and current information. You get more visibility of supplier performance and lower administrative labor costs for data exchange problems in return.
