PLANO, Texas – Siemens PLM Software has implemented a new application based approach to product release, simplifying how manufacturers adopt Teamcenter® software, the world’s most widely used digital lifecycle management system. The new approach separates Teamcenter applications from being dependent on a specific version of the larger Teamcenter platform. As a result, new customer and market driven solutions will now be available up to three times faster, and customers will be able to implement new applications without being required to upgrade the platform, helping them achieve a faster return on their PLM investment. Siemens also announced the latest release of the Teamcenter platform, Teamcenter 10.
Over the past year, Siemens has introduced a number of transformational applications that can now be used with multiple versions of the Teamcenter platform, including Briefcase Browser for supplier integration, Substance Compliance for sustainability initiatives, Product Cost Management, providing visibility into cost throughout the product lifecycle, and a Quality Management with CAPA solution.
“Our separation of application releases from major platform updates significantly simplifies PLM implementation for our customers and is a game change in our market,” said Eric Sterling, Senior Vice President, Lifecycle Collaboration Software, Siemens PLM Software. “PLM customers need to be able to react quickly to changing demands. Our new approach to deliver targeted PLM applications that work across multiple versions of the Teamcenter platform will enable us to focus on developing applications that help transform our customers’ businesses, and allows them to more easily take advantage of the latest and best in PLM. This approach provides customers a faster return on their PLM investment and gives them the agility required to stay ahead of their competition.”
Teamcenter 10 will be available later this month. The new Teamcenter solutions for supplier integration (Briefcase Browser), Substance Compliance, Product Cost Management, and Quality Management with CAPA are all available immediately.
