Teamcenter powers innovation and productivity by connecting people and processes with knowledge. Teamcenter’s comprehensive portfolio of proven digital lifecycle management solutions is built on an open PLM foundation.
Teamcenter is the de facto standard for PLM deployment and is backed by PLMA’s leadership in system implementation.
Teamcenter provides solutions for business initiatives, including the target initiatives shown below. These solutions drive business performance goals, including the need to increase the yield of innovation, compress time-to-market, meet business and regulatory requirements, optimize operational resources and maximize globalization advantages.
Teamcenter solutions target critical business initiatives, such as:
New product development
Improve product innovation by facilitating real-time collaboration among all lifecycle participants and processes
Value chain synchronization
Excel globally by optimizing the exchange of ideas and information across every value-chain stage
Enterprise data management
Improve competitiveness by providing secure access to your enterprise’s product/process data
Commonization and re-use
Re-use proven parts, equipment and processes to create cost efficiency and best practices
Knowledge/intellectual property management
Capture the knowledge/expertise of your lifecycle participants to continuously improve innovation
Achieve market compliance by integrating safety, environmental and government requirements early in your design cycle
Integrate product/process design with manufacturing best practices to increase production quality and performance
Systems engineering and mechatronics
Improve your customers’ value experience by optimizing mechanical, electrical, and software subsystems, constraints and components
Teamcenter enables product teams to capture engineering knowledge from multiple MCAD, ECAD, CAM, CAE systems and form other applications like Microsoft Office and others. Teamcenter integrates this data into a single source of product information you can leverage in automated release, design management, engineering process
management, digital validation, engineering change and team collaboration processes.
Teamcenter also enables the open manufacturing backbone, which, along with its ability to integrate with ERP systems including SAP, helps companies leverage their engineering data into manufacturing and production processes.
Classification facilitates the re-use of parts, processes and knowledge – captured from your designs – by enabling you to quickly find information through defined classifications and standard part, product and process catalogs.
Change management provides preconfigured solutions for formal and less formal processes to initiate, review/approve
and execute product change on an enterprise basis.
Product configuration of Teamcenter includes platform designer capabilities you can use to manage product variability independently of any product structure, and product designer capabilities that enable you to leverage generic modules for specific product variations.
Context management facilitates repeatable product, design and manufacturing process validation. Advanced features support high performance, spatial, attribute and classification searching of complex product configurations. Lifecycle representations provide the ability to associatively define multiple representations of different lifecycle stages or uses for a product or process. For example, Teamcenter can create a
manufacturing planning process, or derive a manufacturing BOM from engineering.
Teamcenter Express is an easy-to-deploy solution that meets the product data management needs of mid-sized companies. It enables engineers to manage design data and communicate its intent through workflow processes that incorporate preconfigured best practices applicable to everyday engineering tasks.
