CIMdata , a global Siemens PLM Software collaborative Product Definition management (cPDm) solution.
The program review provides an overall description as well as CIMdata’s assessment of the Teamcenter Express program for the PLM market. Customer testimonials are included to establish the rationale for the selection of Teamcenter Express to support specific PLM requirements, what the solution is being used for, and what type of benefits the company is receiving.
This review is an assessment of the entire Teamcenter Express effort, including development, marketing, and sales, and the product itself, Teamcenter Express Version 4.
Teamcenter Express is the core product data management component of Siemens PLM Software’s Velocity Series—a set of preconfigured and relatively easy-to-deploy design, manufacturing, and data management solutions. It is intended to address the product design through manufacturing planning needs of small and medium-size companies in multiple industries.
Peter Bilello, VP of CIMdata, says at midmarket solutions like Teamcenter Express focus on PLM issues that affect multiple industries including mechanical machinery and equipment, electromechanical, automotive products, consumer products, and others. Says Bilello, “The capabilities provided by these solutions best support small- to medium-size manufacturing companies that design/engineer parts, components, and assemblies that are low to medium in complexity. These companies focus their requirements on data vault management, workflow automation, and applications that support specific needs in the engineering/manufacturing process such as change management, process planning, quality assurance, and delivering product definition information to the shop floor.”
Bilello addsing, purchasing, marketing, sales, quality, and information technology that all need to access and manipulate product data. These solutions are intended to improve communication and cooperation between these diverse groups and form the basis for organizations to support their product definition lifecycle activities,” he says.
amcenter Express and the rest of the Velocity Series’ components are intended to deliver to this model.”
Concludes Bilello, “CIMdata continues to be impressed with the comprehensive approach Siemens PLM Software has taken, which clearly illustrates their commitment to the midmarket. What is particularly impressive and beneficial for small- to midsize companies is that the various components of the offering are relatively quick and easy-to-install, set up, support, and operate. It is completely scalable to the full range of Siemens’ enterprise-level PLM solutions.”
