Siemens Digital Industries Software announced the new offering in a press release dated January 27, 2021. Teamcenter Quality helps keep product development, quality planning and continuous improvement keep in synch for change management and configuration management on the Teamcenter platform, according to the company.
Companies are continuously challenged to reduce product and operating costs, while still improving quality, to distinguish products and gain a competitive advantage. They need to improve efficiencies among teams that may be distributed across the globe. On the other hand, consumers are requesting more innovation, faster delivery and cheaper products to the market, while still ensuring their quality and safety. This new extension to the Teamcenter portfolio allows engineers to set quality requirements early in the design process and establish the parameters required to help ensure the product realized during the production phase will meet the necessary quality standards, according to Siemens.
Cebi, a worldwide manufacturer of electromechanical components for the automotive and household appliance industries, has recently engaged in a long-term partnership with Siemens in order to accelerate its digital transformation throughout the entire development process, starting from the concept phase through quality execution at the shop floor up to customer service. “An important aspect in our digital transformation is to set up a common approach for managing product information and improve collaboration across Cebi’s global network, in which all the actors bring in their added value to meet customer expectations in terms of product innovation and quality,” said Paul Elvinger, member of the Executive Board at Cebi, quoted in the press release.
“Teamcenter Quality provides a digital thread throughout the design and production phases, creating aligned workflows between quality, manufacturing and engineering teams to help improve collaboration and reduce the need for coordination,” said Dr. Raffaello Lepratti, vice president of Business Development and Marketing for Manufacturing Operations Management at Siemens Digital Industries Software.
