Extend the value: Teamcenter® Extend consists of a solution portfolio that can be configured to achieve PLM vision. Once you have your engineering data and processes under control, you often want to know how PLM can improve related domains and processes. Include suppliers. Connect engineering with manufacturing and service.
The Teamcenter® requirements management capabilities provide a systematic and repeatable solution for defining, capturing, engineering, managing and leveraging product requirements. By understanding each product in terms of its evolving customer requirements and compliance issues, Teamcenter® can build the voice of the customer directly into the product lifecycle – thereby facilitating requirements-driven design, Design for Six Sigma, systems engineering, built-in disposal/recyclability and other highly valued business initiatives.
Service Lifecycle Managemement
As product companies increase focus on aftermarket services for their customers, Service Lifecycle Management (SLM) becomes more strategic. With Teamcenter®, service lifecycle management solutions are an integral part of PLM. Teamcenter® bridges the gaps among the engineering, logistics, manufacturing, and service communities. OEMs and service providers can drive more efficient service operations with a single source of knowledge for both products and assets.
For OEMs, Teamcenter® enables them to reuse design and manufacturing data to enhance service content and incorporate service feedback to support Design for Serviceability and other product improvement initiatives. This holistic approach to the full product lifecycle helps the OEM compete successfully in the service market.
For the third party service provider, the service data management and applications allow them to efficiently execute service activities in a global marketplace through a single service platform. Using configuration-driven BOM management, Teamcenter® delivers a fully linked, full lifecycle BOM environment that includes the EBOM, SBOM (Service BOM), and Asset BOM to configure accurate information to support services.
Using Teamcenter®, companies focusing on service can manage assets, plan service, and scheduling and execute that service work in a single, scalable and open environment. They can use service knowledge managed by Teamcenter® to monitor and achieve metrics necessary for performance based service contracts such as Performance Based Logistics (PBL) or Service Level Agreements for asset availability and reliability by supporting maintenance strategies for Condition-Based Maintenance (CBM), Reliability-Based Maintenance (RBM), preventative and on-demand repair.
The Teamcenter® solutions for service lifecycle management support reactive, proactive, and overhaul service business models.
Manufacturing Process Management
Teamcenter®, combined with Tecnomatix, provides customers a single, scalable and secure source of manufacturing data that supports lifecycle processes from engineering through production. With a fully managed, single source of knowledge for products, processes, resources and plants, customers can increase manufacturing’s influence on product innovation to drastically improve profitability, time-to-market and quality.
The Teamcenter® supplier integration solution can help your company more effectively engage with your supply chain to manage product costs. Teamcenter® provides you with a sustained, disciplined, and systematic process for reducing the total costs of externally purchased materials, goods and services while maintaining/improving levels of quality, service and technology.
By integrating your extended enterprise of customers, strategic partners, and suppliers, Teamcenter® provides you with a collaborative environment to achieve better cost management and more effective product development and manufacture. You can leverage your suppliers’ and partners’ expertise, market knowledge and available resources to drive the development of more innovative products. You can connect procurement and suppliers more closely with engineering and design teams – earlier – to make better product decisions and help manage the change process. Teamcenter® synchronizes your value chain so you can leverage your suppliers’ innovation potential as a strategic weapon in the battle for profitable growth.
