Documentation tools play an essential role in the product lifecycle. Documents can be expensive to produce, and have a long life – sometimes longer than the products they describe – and can be very complex, even having to meet stringent standards in some industries. Done right, documents can be very profitable, especially when they support the service business.
Teamcenter® provides documentation tools to help your teams create specifications, analysis reports, 2D/3D illustrations, spreadsheets, test results, and technical publications. Documents and technical publications are in the same product lifecycle management (PLM) system as all your other product-related information. Document authors have direct access to up-to-date product information like bill of materials, parts lists and 3D geometry, and can work to the same milestones. With Teamcenter, you can keep your product design and documentation aligned with product changes to reduce the time and cost of development, while improving document accuracy and effectiveness.
