If you’re like most manufacturers, your design engineers work in different locations using a variety of mechanical computer-aided design (MCAD), electronic CAD (ECAD), software development, and simulation tools from multiple vendors. Even if you’re using your MCAD system’s product data management (PDM) software, it is also a challenge to see how a product’s parts and components work together when they are designed in separate tools. Add the complex interaction of integrated mechanical, electronics and software components, and creating a complete product design becomes a greater challenge.
Teamcenter takes PDM to a whole new level. Teamcenter provides cross-domain design data management through integrations with the MCAD, ECAD, software development, and simulation tools and processes your design teams use every day. You can manage, find, share and re-use multi-domain data across geographically distributed design centers through a single, secure source of product design and simulation data. You can understand the complex relationships and dependencies between requirements and all the subsystems and design domains across all the possible configurations of the product, even as changes are introduced. You can also create assemblies from parts generated by multiple suppliers that involve complex interactions of subsystems, then prepare and validate the readiness of the design and bill of materials for fabrication, assembly and test.
By integrating your current multi-domain design tools with Teamcenter, you can transform otherwise disconnected tools and processes into a single, cross-domain design data management environment that enables you to lower costs, improve quality, and increase design productivity.
