Control cross-domain product information and processes through enterprise-wide access and visibility. Once you’ve mastered PDM, you can progress to PLM as your requirements change!

Access, share, and re-use designs across MCAD and ECAD tools

Teamcenter collects all of your mechanical computer-aided design (MCAD) data. Native design data from a variety of MCAD systems can be created, managed, visualised, validated, and reused. You can easily find parts and assemblies created in other tools within your preferred MCAD environment, then modify and incorporate them into multi-CAD assemblies or product designs, whether your company uses one or more MCAD tools. To facilitate co-design, Teamcenter also integrates with ECAD tools.


Automate and streamline processes with preconfigured workflows

You can use Teamcenter to speed up product development by automating and synchronizing processes. Workflows that have been pre-configured based on industry best practices assist you in managing change and controlling product releases. You can even participate in review and approval processes right from Microsoft® Office. Preconfigured groups and roles with appropriate access and permissions aid in the automation of daily tasks and processes.

Business-wide BOM visibility

No matter how many pieces your product has, effective bill of materials (BOM) administration and configuration are essential to your success. There is no longer a need for separate spreadsheets and systems since Teamcenter offers a consolidated source of BOM data that employees throughout your firm may access.


Collaborate with non-CAD and multi-CAD users

Teamcenter converts MCAD data to the CAD-neutral 3D format, JT, so you can collaborate on designs and digital mock-ups even if you don’t have access to the tool that created them. Design data, revisions, and product configurations can be found and collaborated on quickly across locations and teams. Version management and access controls ensure that the right people have access to the right information, allowing everyone to make decisions based on the most recent product designs.

Create and share engineering documents along with designs

Your product is defined by more than just its design. Documents are also created throughout the product lifecycle – requirements, specifications, analysis reports, 2D/3D illustrations, test results, and technical publications – and they can be managed in the same system as your design data while being written in familiar Microsoft Office applications. Documents related to specific product configurations and revisions can be saved so they can be reused and referenced on future products.
