Siemens PLM Software introduces a new mobile device application (app) that instantly delivers product knowledge at the right time, in the right place and in the right context to enhance speed and accuracy of product lifecycle decisions.
Siemens PLM Software is a business unit of the Siemens Industry Automation Division and a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services.
The new Teamcenter Mobility mobile device application (app) is designed for mobile workforces to instantly access from WiFi or mobile broadband-available locations, comprehensive product knowledge managed by its Teamcenter software.
Initially deployed on the Apple Inc. iPad portable digital device, the new app will help companies enhance their ability to interact with product data and workflows in a timely manner to aid critical decision-making processes.
Accurate data anyplace, anytime = Smarter decisions, better products
Teamcenter is increasingly being used by companies throughout the world as the digital backbone of their product lifecycle process, making it imperative for the PLM system to deliver data to more locations.
Teamcenter is a widely used PLM system in the automotive and aerospace industries, in addition to consumer products, shipbuilding and high tech electronics.
Companies in these industries need to rely not only on valuable in-house inputs, but also on critical feedback from individuals who may be working in less conventional locations.
This mobile workforce may include executives who spend a significant amount of time in the field at airports, on airplanes or in remote locations.
Teamcenter Mobility enables these individuals to quickly search, view and interact with product and process workflow information on the spot using a convenient mobile device.
This enables decision-makers to make critical decisions without delay using the most up-to-date information, while allowing contributors to provide their unique perspective in real-time.
Teamcenter Mobility enables companies to react quickly and intelligently to the rapidly changing environments associated with all product lifecycle disciplines such as design, simulation, manufacturing and maintenance.
Chuck Grindstaff, President, Siemens PLM Software says that Teamcenter Mobility is a significant evolutionary step in delivering the HD-PLM vision announced last summer.
By making up-to-the-minute Teamcenter data available at the necessary point of activity, users can act immediately on accurate information and further reduce their design and production cycle times.
He adds that the new Teamcenter app helps their customers make smarter decisions resulting in better products and providing them the competitive advantage in the delivery of their solutions.
