HP and Siemens PLM Software , a business unit of the Siemens Industry Automation Division and a leading global provider of product life cycle management (PLM) software and services, today announced a global agreement allowing the companies to accelerate client adoption of software and services that reduce the time needed to implement product life cycle management (PLM) projects.
Also at Hannover Fair, the world’s leading trade show for industrial automation, the companies announced their collaboration with Malaysian automobile manufacturer Proton Holdings Berhad (Proton) in support of Proton’s globalisation plan.
As product life cycle management (PLM) projects become more sophisticated, a growing number of companies require a single prime contractor to take full responsibility of the deployment and financial transaction. The agreement expands the existing relationship between Siemens product lifecycle management software and HP, enabling clients to source PLM software products, hardware and services directly from HP, thereby freeing up resources to focus on the core business.
The agreement allows HP to expand its ability to directly sell product life cycle management (PLM) products and services globally, in addition to designing, developing and deploying complete Siemens PLM Software solutions for enterprise businesses around the world. Joint clients will benefit from a comprehensive range of software and professional services, including consulting and implementation, systems integration and application hosting as well as financing options.
Proton works with HP and Siemens PLM Software
Proton is teaming with HP to implement Siemens PLM Software’s Teamcenter software, which will integrate Proton’s product life cycle processes from all related departments such as management, sales and marketing, engineering, sourcing, manufacturing and service.
The product lifecycle management software also will help Proton to reduce its product costs, enabling it to reuse parts from its previous platform, delivering timely information to sourcing groups for better cost savings, and enabling costs to be managed early in the new product introduction process.
