Siemens PLM Software has been recognised by General Motors as one of its best global automotive suppliers.
General Motors’ 21st annual Supplier of the Year awards ceremony was held recently at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit.
According to Chuck Grindstaff, CEO and President, Siemens PLM Software, the honour of receiving the GM Supplier of the Year award with such consistency is a tribute to their dedication to customer success, and a direct result of the two companies’ close working relationship.
Grace Lieblein, GM vice president, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain explained that Siemens helped play a critical role in GM’s success in 2012 through their dedication and commitment to consistently exceed expectations by being innovative, delivering high quality products and services on time and by creating outstanding value.
Siemens is one of only 83 suppliers recognised by GM who have consistently exceeded GM’s expectations. This is the fifth time Siemens PLM Software has received the Supplier of the Year award, and the third time in the last four years.
Chosen by a global team of GM purchasing, engineering, quality, manufacturing and logistics executives, the Supplier of the Year award is given to less than 1% of GM’s approximately 18,500 suppliers around the world. The winners are recognised for delivering innovative technology, superior quality, timely crisis management and competitive, total-enterprise cost solutions.
Siemens’ Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software business unit supplies General Motors with a comprehensive set of integrated software, services and expertise to help automate their entire product lifecycle process. The offerings include NX software for computer-aided design, manufacturing and engineering analysis, Teamcenter software for digital lifecycle management, and the Tecnomatix portfolio for digital manufacturing automation and simulation.
