Siemens PLM Software, a business unit of the Siemens Industry Automation Division and a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, has presented 9.1 version of Teamcenter software. This release delivers new solutions and enhancements to help companies make better informed decisions more efficiently and with a higher level of confidence.
Teamcenter helps companies deliver increasingly complex products while maximizing productivity and streamlining global operations. The Teamcenter 9 release adds a new integrated systems engineering solution and tightens the integration across the unified architecture so companies can make smarter decisions with better visibility into the impact of those decisions. Enhancements across the entire Teamcenter portfolio significantly improve productivity so companies can get to market faster, while reducing total cost of ownership.
The new Teamcenter systems engineering solution provides a fully-integrated approach to systems engineering and requirements management, delivering a systems-driven approach to product development and a common view of the system up and down the value chain, including tying requirements to physical implementation. Teamcenter 9 accelerates the product development process through intelligently integrated information, and ensures all departments and disciplines are using synchronized product information.
In addition, Teamcenter offers integrations with familiar tools like Microsoft’s Outlook messaging software, Word, Excel spreadsheet software, and Visio software, as well as MathWorks’ MATLAB environment and Simulink environment, enabling multi-methodology support in systems definition and modeling as part of product lifecycle management.
Content Management and Technical Documentation
Teamcenter 9 fully integrates content management for production of critical technical documentation such as user guides and repair manuals synced to the release of a product. Because technical documentation is created in parallel with the design process, changes are communicated as they occur, driving documentation efficiency. In addition, Teamcenter content management supports configuration-driven documentation that reuses common components of text, graphics, and meta-data. This provides efficient, context-based multi-channel publishing to support the need for multi-media delivery on different devices and in multiple languages to support global markets.
In addition, an even tighter integration to Cortona3D’s Rapid Author application enables documents to be created with illustrations that remain linked to the design data they describe throughout the documentation production cycle. The new release also supports the latest version of the S1000D standard used in aerospace and government documentation as well as the DITA (Darwin Information Typing Architecture).
Service Lifecycle Management
Siemens PLM Software extends Service Lifecycle Management with a new service scheduling and execution module that improves the ability to track whether service has been completed in compliance with published procedures. Teamcenter 9 integrates the service scheduling and execution management solutions to more effectively control costs, optimize service organizations’ resources, improve service throughput and reduce asset downtime. Teamcenter tracks and captures the execution of these service tasks to maintain an accurate history of assets and service records. Service personnel can also use the feedback capability to provide input to engineers further helping to increase product performance and reliability.
Process-based User Experience
Product development requires the involvement of both occasional and “power-users” who work in varying disciplines with varying needs and who need to access the right PLM data for the task at hand. Teamcenter 9 offers customized user experience functionality based on process stylesheets that can streamline processes regardless of whether they use the traditional Teamcenter rich client (application) or thin client (web). The layout can now be easily customized to make it much easier for users to access task-specific information, actions, and behaviors, which results in a more streamlined and productive user experience.
