June 17, 2020 - Siemens Digital Industries Software announces Teamcenter X software, a product lifecycle management (PLM) solution delivered as a service. Created with product innovators in mind, Teamcenter is a PLM suite that connects people and processes across functional disciplines. Teamcenter X offers the choice of preconfigured engineering and business solutions, with the flexibility to add more capabilities as business needs grow.
With this latest SaaS extension to Siemens’ Xcelerator portfolio, Teamcenter X can work to help customers realize PLM benefits and streamline product development. Companies can connect PLM with familiar applications for secure, agile, collaboration across the enterprise, and across functional domains. With an open multi-CAD approach and integrations to software tools, such as NX software and Solid Edge software for mechanical computer-aided design (CAD), Mentor software for electronic CAD, and Polarion X software for Application Lifecycle Management (ALM), Teamcenter X creates a multi-domain bill of materials (BOM) to provide visibility to the complete digital twin, including mechanical, electrical, and software components. The interface, with predictive Artificial Intelligence (AI) elements, helps users across the enterprise get up and running. Preconfigured solutions, such as Engineering Change, Release Management, and more, are intended to help users work more efficiently. Built on the Mendix software application platform, the knowledge contained in Teamcenter X can be integrated and extended across the entire enterprise.
Siemens also announces Teamcenter Share, a cloud-based, design-centric project collaboration service designed for companies that want to move to an engineering-focused collaboration tool from local and networked hard drives, or generic cloud storage solutions. Share enables product development stakeholders to synchronize desktop files to secure cloud storage, where they can view and markup all common CAD formats from any device, and share project work with other stakeholders to facilitate collaboration on product development projects. Teamcenter Share also provides Augmented Reality (AR) capabilities that can be accessed from a tablet or smartphone to enable users to better understand how designs will function in the intended environment.
