Cross-domain design BOMs transform disconnected data into a single product definition


Your design engineers likely operate remotely utilising a range of MCAD, ECAD, software development, and simulation technologies from several suppliers if your company is like the majority of manufacturers. Connecting all the parts from various tools might be difficult due to several data management strategies. Managing a comprehensive product design BOM across domains gets increasingly difficult as products grow “smarter” and more complicated.

Teamcenter offers cross-domain design BOM management via tight connections with the MCAD, ECAD, software development, and simulation tools you regularly use. With only one safe source of design BOM data, you can manage, locate, exchange, and reuse multi-domain data among design centres located all over the world. Even when the product develops, you can comprehend the intricate connections and relationships that exist between components from various design domains. In order to create a unified, cross-domain design BOM definition, you can combine previously unconnected elements of your product description.

ECAD Design Data Management

All significant ECAD systems may be integrated with Teamcenter. You can locate the necessary information fast thanks to the robust design data management tools for PCB and wire harness release management. The administration of the enterprise-wide ECAD parts library lowers expenses by getting rid of inconsistent and incorrect ECAD component data. Close cooperation between domains and organisational functions is encouraged by the ECAD viewer, ECAD-MCAD exchange support, and assembly/test analysis tools.


Multi-CAD design management for MCAD

Your design teams can develop, manage, view, validate, and reuse native design data across MCAD platforms, including NX, Solid Edge, AutoCAD®, CATIA®, Inventor®, Pro/ENGINEER®, and SolidWorks®, thanks to Teamcenter’s design data management with multi-CAD compatibility. You may combine elements from several MCAD programmes to produce integrated multi-CAD designs utilising our JT 3D visualisation standard. Even if you don’t have access to the MCAD tools that created the designs, you can still participate on them.

Simulation Data and Process Management

Validate performance goals by simulating various multi-domain and multi-physics problems with various products. construct and extract CAE structures from MCAD or ECAD structures quickly. To confirm performance goals and fulfil validation contracts for complicated goods, you could utilise a tens or hundreds of various simulation tools. Utilize Teamcenter data by using a framework for codeless integration, then capture the results and upload them to Teamcenter with the original data still associated.


Software Design Management

Through the integration of product lifecycle management and software engineering data and procedures, Teamcenter enables software design data management (PLM). Application lifecycle management (ALM) tools, data, and procedures may be seamlessly integrated with Teamcenter thanks to a multi-domain lifecycle integration architecture. With this ALM-PLM interface, you can manage software design processes as an essential component of the broader product lifecycle and manage your software designs in a holistic product perspective.
