Teamcenter Rapid Start delivers the world’s most widely implemented product data management (PDM) solution, Teamcenter, pre-configured to utilise the most common industry best practices and the expertise of Siemens PLM Software. By choosing Teamcenter Rapid Start’s pre-configured capabilities, you can minimise the costs of consulting and deployment, and get started with PDM quickly and cost-effectively.
Teamcenter includes project and program management solutions that help you bridge the gap between project planning, execution, and the data and deliverables that are the inputs and outputs of the whole PLM process. With a single, integrated solution, you can more effectively manage programs, projects, resources, tasks and schedules.
With the Teamcenter requirements management solution, you can establish a single, secure source of requirements. You can create, edit, review and approve requirements from your computer or mobile device using familiar Microsoft Office® applications like Word and Excel®. You can import and exchange requirements documents with other tools and standard formats. Once requirements are captured in Teamcenter, you can easily search, access and maintain them in the same PLM system you use to manage the rest of your product information. Requirements are easy to find, share and re-use across multiple products or projects.
With Teamcenter, you can automate product development processes, regardless of how simple or complex they are. You can create workflows that build-in your business logic, and define standard process templates to enforce best practices and eliminate errors. Instant status, history and audit trails ensure you have complete control and visibility of your processes. With effective product development process management, you can give everyone exactly what they need to complete their task at the right time.
With Teamcenter quality issue management, you can follow a consistent formal process to systematically investigate, analyze and resolve quality issues using 8D and ISO industry standards. By streamlining your definition of preventive measures, you can prevent future re-occurrences of product issues. Quality data reports and analysis of the results is easy, with intuitive tools that include drag-and-drop capabilities to customize reports to your own needs.
Change management is a critical PLM process. Teamcenter delivers end-to-end, closed-loop product change management so you can synchronize change and integrate your change processes across all product domains. With flexible change management powered by PLM, you can implement change quickly, accurately and comprehensively.
The Rulestream Engineer-to-Order solution from Siemens establishes a closed loop learning system that delivers continuous improvement to promote lean processes and facilitate extensive reuse that underscores innovation. The result is expanded enterprise collaboration and significant improvements in quality and time-to-market.
To increase your revenue-generating capability, you can establish product platforms that facilitate more frequent product enhancements, derivatives, niche offerings and add-ons. Teamcenter software enables you to create a generic product structure that you can use to manage all of the configurations that apply to a product platform – including definitions for the product families, 150% BOM variants and configurations that facilitate an affordable approach to mass production
Teamcenter brings your document development and management processes into your PLM environment, synchronising them with your product development processes and keeping documents and technical publications up-to-date with product changes. From an advanced Microsoft Office® interface, and a structured authoring and publishing environment for SGML/XML technical publishing, you can greatly reduce the effort to generate accurate, effective documents that can be tailored by market, language or product.
Teamcenter® software delivers bill-of-materials (BOM) management capabilities that enable you to know your product; whether it consists of 10 parts in a single configuration managed with basic processes and
tools, or it is a highly-complex product with millions of parts in thousands of configurations,
requiring more advanced tools, flexibility and scalability.
One of the biggest gaps for many companies is the link between the virtual product definition and the physical, delivered product. You might be developing products with limited ability to virtually validate whether they can actually be built. You might be relying on costly prototypes, or virtual tests of only a few valid product configurations. Teamcenter BOM management ties your virtual and physical product definitions together, providing accurate digital validation and simulation. You can digitally validate your products, ensuring that what has been designed can actually be built. With “realized products,” you can eliminate costly prototypes and errors later in the process.
BOM management and configuration begins long before a single drawing is made, and continues long after the first part is produced. Teamcenter supports up-front planning and master product definition, through design, development, manufacturing, service and more. In addition, Teamcenter helps you integrate your BOM information across other enterprise systems, such as enterprise resource planning (ERP). You can implement integrated BOM management to eliminate the costly errors associated with independent, standalone BOM sources. With consistent BOM information across systems, you can ensure cost-effective execution of the products you plan for.
Teamcenter provides design data management with multi-CAD support so that your design teams can create, manage, visualize, validate and re-use native design data across a wide selection of MCAD systems, including NX and Solid Edge from Siemens PLM Software, as well as Autodesk AutoCAD, Dassault CATIA, Autodesk Inventor, PTC Creo and Dassault SolidWorks. Using our JT 3D visualization standard, you can create integrated multi-CAD designs using parts and components from different MCAD tools. You can collaborate on designs, even if you don’t have access to the MCAD tools that authored them.
Teamcenter supports integrations with all major ECAD systems. The rich design data management capabilities for printed circuit board (PCB) and wire harness release management enable you to find the right data quickly. The enterprise-wide ECAD parts library management reduces costs by eliminating inconsistent and inaccurate ECAD part data. The ECAD viewer, ECAD-MCAD exchange support and assembly/test analysis tools promote close collaboration within and across domains and organisational functions
Teamcenter can help you validate performance targets by simulating products across a variety of multi-domain and multi-physics issues. Using Teamcenter capabilities specifically designed for managing models, simulation data, and simulation processes, you can quickly derive and generate the computer-aided engineering (CAE) structure from the MCAD or ECAD structures. For complex products, you may use tens or hundreds of different simulation tools to verify performance targets and meet validation contracts. Teamcenter provides a framework for codeless integration with these tools so that data from Teamcenter can be delivered to the tools. Results can then be captured and stored in Teamcenter along with all the correct associations to design and requirements data
Teamcenter provides a manufacturing process based environment in which manufacturing can manage NC programming data. It also replaces user directories on local disc drives and centralizes the
storage of NC programming data. Users can save and retrieve the correct NC data configuration for a particular job, including part information, setup and tooling data, as well as shop documentation ouput from the NC programming session. Teamcenter with NX Manufacturing also provides access to comprehensive libraries for both tooling and machining process templates.
Teamcenter provides software design data management by integrating software engineering data and processes with product lifecycle management (PLM). Leveraging a multi-domain lifecycle integration framework, Teamcenter enables the seamless integration of application lifecycle management (ALM) tools, data and processes. With this ALM-PLM integration, you can manage your software designs in a holistic product view, and manage software design processes as an integral part of the overall product lifecycle
Teamcenter supplier integration capabilities provides a comprehensive approach to managing interactions with suppliers. You can coordinate processes and manage information, both internal and external, across all stages of your product lifecycle. You can drive early supplier involvement in product development and provide visibility into accurate supplier information across departments. Supplier information can be managed in context with the product structure to provide holistic views of your product. You can make better decisions about purchased components and have access to reliable supplier analytics.
The Teamcenter product cost management solution helps your products succeed with product costing capabilities you can use at the time when decisions matter most: in the early stages of the product lifecycle. You can simulate, analyze and optimize your product costs to make the right decisions at the right time and ensure product profitability.
You can use Teamcenter software’s security management capabilities to establish a security model for your product lifecycle management (PLM) environment and support multiple security related initiatives. Once your security model is in place, you can use it to protect your environment’s underlying systems and databases from unauthorized access/use, as well as to control how individual pieces of product and process information can be used and by whom. Teamcenter supports export control initiatives such as the International Traffic in Arms Regulations ITAR, as well as standard internet security deployments and other additional security-related programs.
