Siemens PLM partners with Capgemini for integrated supplier relationship management

02/18/2009



Siemens PLM Software will work with Capgemini Group , a foremost provider of consulting, technology and outsourcing services, to develop and deliver an integrated supplier relationship management (SRM) solution.

Based on Siemens PLM Software’s Teamcenter software for SRM and Capgemini’s knowledge of process synchronization, systems integration and rapid implementation methodologies, the solution will help customers identify and optimize their supply sources, exchange data with suppliers, negotiate agreements using best-in-class sourcing technology, and monitor ongoing supplier performance.

Teamcenter for SRM is the set of processes that empower purchasing to work with suppliers to minimize costs while maintaining and improving quality, service and innovation. The joint solution, which brings together PLM and direct material sourcing, delivers services that include solution configuration and installation, content creation and on-going application support.

The Siemens-Capgemini integrated solution will focus on the automotive, aerospace, consumer products, machinery, and high-tech industries, supporting the optimal level of supplier collaboration that is required to unlock value creation and deliver sustainable savings.

According to Dick Slansky, senior analyst and PLM research director for Dedham, Mass.-based ARC Advisory Group , “The partnership highlights the expanded domains of the product life cycle and how [product life-cycle management vendors] like Siemens PLM Software are now providing solutions well beyond the traditional engineering design/build domains.”

Capgemini will establish implementation services for the Teamcenter for SRM suite of applications, as well as integration services between the modules and other third-party PLM and ERP systems. The offering will be rounded out with position testing, data conversion, and change management.

“Siemens PLM Software has the tools necessary to make supplier relationship management an embedded skill across multiple functions,” says Ed Stark, global supply chain leader for Capgemini. “By combining its tools with Capgemini’s focus on strategy, transformation, and implementation, our companies aim to make supplier relationship management a lynchpin in helping clients become more collaborative and cost-efficient.”
