Extending Teamcenter Functionality with Custom Applications

PROLIM and Mendix Collaboration

Teamcenter, Siemens’ renowned Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software, offers a comprehensive set of features that cater to diverse industry needs. However, many organizations often require additional custom functionality to address specific business requirements or enhance existing processes. PROLIM, a leading provider of PLM and engineering solutions, has been at the forefront of extending Teamcenter’s capabilities through custom applications, with valuable collaborations with Mendix. In this blog, we will explore the significance of custom applications, the benefits they bring, and how the partnership between PROLIM and Mendix has played a vital role in this domain.

The Need for Custom Applications

While Teamcenter provides a wide range of functionalities, every organization operates differently, with unique processes and specific challenges. Off-the-shelf solutions might not address all these specific needs, leading to gaps in process efficiency and productivity. Custom applications, developed in collaboration with Mendix‘s low-code platform, are tailor-made software solutions designed to bridge these gaps and integrate seamlessly with Teamcenter.

Advantages of Custom Applications

Enhanced Productivity

Custom applications streamline workflows, automate repetitive tasks, and provide a user-friendly interface, boosting overall productivity and reducing manual errors.

Optimized Workflows

By integrating directly into Teamcenter, custom applications optimize existing workflows and facilitate smoother data exchange between different systems, ensuring better collaboration and data integrity.


Investing in custom applications can often prove more cost-effective than opting for multiple third-party plugins or costly system modifications.

Scalability and Flexibility

As businesses evolve, their requirements change too. Custom applications, developed using Mendix’s low-code platform, can easily adapt to these changes, ensuring long-term scalability and flexibility.

Competitive Advantage

Organizations that leverage custom applications gain a competitive edge by integrating their custom application with PLM to fit their unique needs and achieve greater efficiency.
