In today’s dynamic manufacturing landscape, staying ahead demands product development solutions that not only tackle current challenges but also possess the adaptability to accommodate future demands. As product complexity continues to rise, efficient management of the digital twin and the intricacies of the product bill of materials (BOM) become crucial. This is where cloud-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions like Siemens’ Teamcenter X shine, providing a multitude of advantages that revolutionize your BOM management experience.

The significance of BOM Management

The BOM isn’t just a list of parts; it’s the backbone of your product development process, guiding various departments from design and manufacturing to procurement and service. However, as product complexity increases, so do the challenges in maintaining an accurate, up-to-date, and synchronized BOM across different domains and the entire product lifecycle.

Enhancing Efficiency and Collaboration with Cloud PLM

Cloud PLM software offers a solution to the challenges of collaboration and alignment. One of its remarkable features is the automatic generation of the Bill of Materials (BOM) based on current inputs whenever CAD models are checked in. As designs evolve, these solutions intelligently update the BOM while preserving engineer-defined exceptions. This synchronization streamlines data from various sources required to finalize the BOM, facilitating a seamless release of parts and products to downstream disciplines.

Saildrone, a California-based company specializing in designing, manufacturing, and operating uncrewed surface vehicles (USVs), embraced the comprehensive Teamcenter product lifecycle management (PLM) portfolio through Teamcenter X, leveraging the benefits of SaaS.

“We were excited about Teamcenter X because it allows us to have the entire BOM, both ECAD and MCAD assemblies, so that we can clean up the interface between manufacturing and engineering. We can release parts and know that they have the entire BOM rather than a patchwork quilt that we used to have with different PLM systems.”

Andrew Schultz, Chief Technology Officer, Saildrone

The Potential of a Unified Digital Environment

An enterprise BOM driven by PLM promises a unified perspective of the product, enabling stakeholders to visualize, monitor changes, and validate product configurations within a collaborative digital landscape. Beyond its technical capabilities, it also addresses vital factors like deployment, ownership costs, and scalability, making it an enticing choice for organizations seeking to future-proof their BOM management strategies.

Effortless Onboarding and Accessibility

Teamcenter X takes the lead as a cloud-based SaaS solution crafted for seamless and accessible user experiences. With web-based access and no installation prerequisites, teams can collaborate effortlessly from any device, whether they’re working remotely, in the office, or on the factory floor. The adaptable subscription model eliminates the need for a substantial initial investment, ensuring scalability to meet evolving business requirements.

“Teamcenter X will manage our Solid Edge designs and other product-related data, and since it’s a SaaS platform with no infrastructure overhead, we can immediately focus on unlocking opportunities for growth and improved efficiencies through digital transformation.”

Corey Minter, Engineering Manager, Akebono Brake Corporation
