Teamcenter Engineering Process Management

  • Teamcenter’s engineering process management solution allows you to integrate your global engineering teams by bringing together the product designs from all your sites within a single product data management (PDM) system. You can capture, manage and synchronize product design data, then automate your engineering change, validation and approval processes.
  • Teamcenter can manage data from all major CAD systems, so you don’t need to translate CAD data. Teamcenter converts multi-CAD data into the CAD-neutral JT format automatically, so it is transparent to users. You can bring parts from different CAD systems into a visual mockup, where you can visualize, probe, section, analyze and mark them up.
  • Teamcenter’s digital validation capabilities allow you to aggregate design changes continuously. With digital mockup always on, you can see design changes in real-time. Your designers can validate their changes, not only in the current configuration, but against every configuration.
  • Teamcenter’s automated workflow capabilities allow you to execute change processes that provide all product development stakeholders with instant access to necessary data. You can communicate and evaluate the impact of proposed changes with Teamcenter’s comprehensive configuration management capabilities.

 

Teamcenter Content And Document Management

  • The Teamcenter capabilities for content and document management bring the authoring process into the same PLM environment that manages the overall product development process. Whether you are creating simple, but important, business documents or generating complex service manuals, authors can stay in-sync with product content and changes, so you can produce more accurate and higher quality documents while remaining on- schedule and on-budget.
  • The Teamcenter central PLM system transcends traditional organizational and process boundaries involved with document management and technical publishing software. Teamcenter includes your company’s authors within the same collaborative, knowledge management environment used for product development. Authors can participate in the same processes, such as change management and product launch, to ensure the whole product package comes together on-time and on-budget.

 

Teamcenter Bill Of Materials (BOM) Management

  • The Teamcenter bill of materials management solution allows you to manage your complete BOM in a single environment - from simple structures to complex product definitions. A single source of BOM information and the tools to analyze that information ensures accuracy and completeness for all stakeholders. You can eliminate the need to maintain, combine and verify all the various pieces of BOM information historically stored in separate systems, databases, and spreadsheets.
  • Teamcenter enables you to manage complex product definitions that include product options and variability. Users can manage families of products instead of discrete product variants, enabling more options without additional effort. Context management ensures individuals and teams are working in consistent contexts – representing the correct product offering, maturity/release level, configuration and processes across the organization. With visibility to clear, current and accurate BOM information, specific to the at-hand tasks of users, you can boost productivity and collaboration.
  • Extend BOM support beyond design and development to include the entire lifecycle of your products. By bridging the gap from design to procurement and delivery, you can reduce errors, scrap, rework and warranty costs. In addition, you can automate the exchange of BOM information throughout the lifecycle, eliminating costly, time- consuming, and error-prone manual entry and translation processes.

Once the portfolio management strategy is defined, Teamcenter’s program and project management capabilities help you organize resources and drive activities to dramatically improve performance. By executing projects against clearly defined goals, your teams can better coordinate their resources to meet the strategic needs of the company. By increasing program visibility and synchronizing activities, you can drive performance and profitability, and increase the overall return on your R&D investment.

 

Teamcenter Requirements Management

  • By helping you understand and evaluate voice of the customer requirements across every stage of your product lifecycle, Teamcenter requirements management software allows you to understand what your target markets and customers want in terms of documented expectations, preferences, standards and regulations.
  • You can capture the voice of the customer from diverse sources as product requirements, and supplement these requirements with quantifiable constraints that determine the success of your take-to-market programs in terms of their cost and delivery schedules. Then you can communicate requirements with product decision-makers throughout the product lifecycle, so decisions result in products that reflect the voice of the customer.
  • As decisions are made, Teamcenter software’s requirements traceability allows you to analyze and trace requirements to prove compliance. You can track, demonstrate and report on compliance based on voice of the customer requirements, as well as established requirements for performance, ergonomics, safety, usability, reliability, maintainability, recycling/disposal and other metrics.

Teamcenter Maintenance, Repair And Overhaul / SLM

  • The Teamcenter approach of “configuration-driven MRO software” bridges the gap between the engineering, manufacturing, logistics and maintenance communities to help drive more efficient services. Through service data management (SDM), Teamcenter establishes a single, secure source of service, asset, and process knowledge that supports the full product lifecycle for organizations that must cover the entire lifecycle or just the service portion of it. SDM provides the common basis for MRO process management solutions that improve service operations through a single definition of asset configuration and status. Streamlining MRO within the product lifecycle management (PLM) environment, Teamcenter delivers leaner operations and improved asset performance, while closing the loop between product engineering, manufacturing and services to improve products and services.
  • Recognizing that service and support is a strategic opportunity for differentiation and increased profits, manufacturers can embed support considerations directly into the product lifecycle. Teamcenter can help grow your services business by helping you plan and deliver services more effectively, maximize the operational availability of managed assets, and ensure compliance with service-related metrics and regulatory agencies. For third-party service providers and owner/operators, Teamcenter provides the service knowledge and process management environment to keep all service organization disciplines in sync. Teamcenter provides a single source of the configuration of your assets to support the purchase and utilization of parts inventory, plan services, plant maintenance, and service procedures and processes.
