Description

TeamCenter

Effective Data Management

System Teamcenter provides a comprehensive work environment for all departments in thecompany. The full integration of employees and data they have to work on ensures integrity and uniformity of information. This is a PLM system which means that it manages the entire life cycle of the product, from a concept or an inquiry to the service and disposal of the product.

Integral Data Source
The data are stored on the server to prevent errors of working with outdated or incomplete data. Thanks to the mechanisms used in the Teamcenter system, everyone uses the same files while the copies made by the users are only short-cuts to individual files. Such an approach prevents duplication of data.

Preview Independent from the CAD System
Regardless of the CAD application from which the models are sourced, they can be easily previewed and measured and comments can be added to the model and the drawing. There is no need to have a CAD application since Teamcenter always generates a JT visualization file for each model. Also, flat drawings are available and printable.

Easy Access to Data
Every Teamcenter user can quickly log into the system and load the necessary data regardless of the used program. It is always possible to check who used the files, when they were used and what changes were introduced.

Variety of Access Interfaces
Every Teamcenter user can quickly log into the system and use the installed client's application, website browser, CAD application or MS Office as necessary. Each of these applications is directly integrated with the management system.

Comprehensive Descriptive Data
The structure of the Teamcenter data model allows using many additional pieces of information associated with files which make it easier to search and catalog the information. The CAD files and other data which are related to them - e.g., strength analyses, model photos or NC programs - can all be stored in one location.

Scalability of the Solution
Teamcenter enables the customising of the solution to meet the specific needs of the company. Depending on the needs, you can focus e.g., only on the design firm management or the scheduling of the design work or integrate all departments of the company within a single comprehensive work environment. 

Specialized Modules
Apart from standard functionalities, advanced tools dedicated to specific uses also can be integrated within the system.  These can include, for example, engineering process management, servicing, material management, simulations and variants of designs or making various types of technical documentation.

Multi-Branch Collaboration
Apart from operating at a single location of a company, it frequently happens that an enterprise has various branches in other cities or countries. Teamcenter has dedicated tools which enable effective work with such distributed data. All servers are synchronizable and the data can be accessible to the individual branches.

Integration with Other Systems
The Teamcenter system can be integrated with various systems which should be tied with the PLM system.

ERP Software
A module enabling direct integration with the SAP system is accessible. It enables automatic data interchange during the product approval procedure. The information about the status and material lists are synchronizable with the ERP system. Other systems may also be tied with Teamcenter, e.g., through data interchange based on on the XML format.

CAD/CAM Software
All leading CAD software products include modules for integration within Teamcenter software.   This ensures that previews of models and drawings are automatically generated in the system for persons who do not use the software in which they have been created.   Files are saved directly to the server, which also makes them immediately visible to authorized users. Irrespective of what workstation the designer works on, he/she always has access to the same data at the same locations.  It is possible to store CAM data or e.g., to take advantage of the integration with the E-CAD software.

Functions

Data Security

Access Control
The basic functionality of the management system is that data are prevented from being accessed by persons who have not been duly authorized. In the Teamcenter system, data are stored on a server which is not directly accessible by any user. Everything is done through a dedicated interface which controls access to the data..

Advanced Access Rights
The users working in the system have pre-defined roles and belong to specific groups. To make it easier to manage the rights, they are not defined on a fixed basis for a specific user but they are a total of the rights assigned to his/her role and the group he/she belongs to. The rights are definable in a highly detailed way in an environment which is transparent to the administrator and they dynamically depend on e.g., the changing status of documents.

Data Revision
All files in the system are subject to revision.  This means that if any of the files has been approved and cannot be modified any more, its new revision is created and will become the current version when approved.   The production department should always see the approved revisions only while the other versions are at the development stage or archive versions accessible by design, engineering or service departments. 

Project Management
Group Work

All persons who jointly work on a project have access to the same data. There is no need to copy the files for oneself locally and then to analyze which of them are the up-to-date files. Regardless of the CAD application, Teamcenter controls the access to data while making sure that the files cannot be overwritten. The person who is first to load the file for editing blocks it from being modified by others; at the same time it is accessible for everyone in the read-only mode. All changes are immediately visible to the entire project group.

Project Schedule Management
Each project should be provided with a pre-defined action plan according to which it is carried out. Teamcenter offers the possibility to build a project schedule, assigning individual tasks to specific users. As the schedule is carried out and particular tasks are completed, it is possible to follow the progress of works and the manager can analyze whether the project can be completed on time and within the budget. While creating a schedule template, you can estimate the cost of the entire project at the very beginning, including various cost buckets.

Electronic Information Flow Processes
Workflow Task Processes

Teamcenter has a built-in system for the automation of task processes. Each template can have both tasks to be done and blocks used to control the work process. If a person or a department is to be informed about the progress of works, it is also possible to include an information block in the process diagram.  It is also possible to activate e-mail notifications about the receipt of a task to be carried out in the Teamcenter system.

Electronic Change Sheet Process
Teamcenter has a built-in change sheet system which automates and simplifies the way to make changes in the documentation at every stage of the product life cycle. There is no need to create separate documents with a change request, change order or change notification. This is an automated process and these steps are included in the template. The important feature is that you are always able to see the pre-change, post-change and newly created models/drawings.

Product Structure Management
BOM Variants

While building product structures, you can also use variants of the structure, that is, build an assembly that contains all structural variants. Such an approach makes it easy to add further subassemblies and make their occurrence conditional on specific product parameters.

MultiCAD
In a Teamcenter design structure you can associate CAD data coming from various applications while keeping the possibility to preview the entire product. The data can also be used by other programs without having to be conversed – e.g., joint work in NX and Solid Edge on the project where some files have been saved in the native formats of Solid Edge and some in NX.
