Siemens Digital Industries Software announced June 16, 2020 Teamcenter X software, a new product lifecycle management (PLM) solution delivered as a service. Created with product innovators in mind, Teamcenter is a modern, highly scalable and industry proven PLM suite that connects people and processes across functional disciplines. Teamcenter X is the new software as a service (SaaS) offering, helping enable companies to quickly realize value, without the IT resource traditionally associated with on-premises PLM deployments. Teamcenter X offers the convenience of choosing from preconfigured engineering and business solutions that deliver immediate value, with the flexibility to add more capabilities as business needs grow, according to Siemens.
With this latest SaaS extension to Siemens’ Xcelerator portfolio, Teamcenter X can help customers realize PLM benefits quickly and streamline product development. Companies can easily 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 the world’s leading 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 easy to use interface, with predictive Artificial Intelligence (AI) elements, helps users across the enterprise get up and running quickly and work smarter. Preconfigured solutions, such as Engineering Change, Release Management, and more, 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 new 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 easily share project work with other stakeholders to facilitate collaboration on product development projects. Teamcenter Share also provides sophisticated Augmented Reality (AR) capabilities that can be easily accessed from a tablet or smartphone to enable users to better understand how designs will function in the intended environment.
