Siemens PLM Software presents a new application based approach to product release, simplifying the implementation of Teamcenter software, a widely used digital lifecycle management system.
The new approach separates Teamcenter applications from being dependent on a specific version of the larger Teamcenter platform, making available new customer and market driven solutions up to three times faster, and enabling customers to implement new applications without upgrading 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 Quality Management with CAPA solution.
Eric Sterling, Senior Vice President, Lifecycle Collaboration Software, Siemens PLM Software observes that their separation of application releases from major platform updates significantly simplifies PLM implementation for their customers. Explaining that PLM customers need to be able to react quickly to changing demands, he adds that the new approach to deliver targeted PLM applications working across multiple versions of the Teamcenter platform will enable Siemens to focus on developing applications, which help transform customers’ businesses, and allow them to more easily take advantage of the latest and best in PLM.
The new approach provides customers faster ROI while also giving them the agility required to stay ahead of their competition.
