Companies now face rising customer demand to provide more product variety and choice. Traditional configure-to-order procedures are made more difficult by the complexity of electrical and software components. Current systems struggle to accommodate domain-wide setup, resulting in duplicated data, mistakes, and overburdened resources.
Product line engineering inside PLM allows you to provide the diversity your consumers expect while boosting profitability. Teamcenter® allows for a unified description of variability across domains and lifecycles. Product choices are kept separately of design data and are not linked to it. This creates a centralised repository of configuration data that may be used across mechanical, electrical, and software domains. Inside PLM, product line engineering spans the whole product lifecycle, allowing you to leverage sophisticated product planning and system modelling capabilities across all domains. You can guarantee that all stakeholders understand the correct configuration information. Product line engineering allows you to respond to market demands more quickly.
