  • How can you ensure your project teams deliver design-through-manufacturing projects on-time and on-budget?
  • Collaborative product data management – or - cPDM, delivers improved collaboration in these key areas:Within your design teamsBetween your design and manufacturing departmentsand with external users such as field engineers, and with your suppliers and customersIn this presentation we will focus on the first of these areas – improved collaboration between your designers and across extended design teams
  • In this presentation we will focus on improving collaboration for all users involved in the design process – a key issue here is that your users need to be able to find existing data quickly – and need good visibility of design changes that are in processcPDM addresses these issues by providing:Rapid retrieval of the correct data and increased reuse of existing designsElectronic workflows that alert all users of the status of design processesTransparent completion of data management tasksAnd Support for “Parallel design” processes - where work is performed collaboratively between multiple designers and with suppliers and customers Using these techniques designers can collaborate more easily and complete projects faster and with higher quality
  • We see that in a lot of small- and medium-size manufacturing organizations data is stored in multiple locations and in multiple formats. Quite often duplicates of data are present, and - if one of the copies is modified - there are now two versions of the data – which is the correct one to use for manufacturing?Also – the ability to find existing designs that can be re-used in new assemblies, or used as the basis for new designs is limitedIndustry analyst Aberdeen Research found that a typical engineer spends 25 to 30% of their time searching for part information!
  • Teamcenter Express brings your product data into a single database, and provides powerful and flexible methods to structure and search the dataSearches can be conducted not only from the full or “rich” Teamcenter Express client, but from a web client and from CAD applications and Microsoft OfficeThe benefit to the user is less time spent searching for data, and increased reuse of proven components in new designs
  • Item data management is a core concept of Teamcenter Express and brings real benefits in the area of collaboration:All types of data are associated to the item and this data is managed as a unit through release and change processes to ensure integrityThe benefits of this approach are that users can quickly see all the data associated with an item- This Improves collaboration and the understanding of the impact of a proposed change
  • Teamcenter Express also delivers pre-configured, electronic workflows for managing the design processThrough these workflows users are notified immediately of tasks that require their attention – and the status of the design process is clearly visible to all users, promoting collaboration between all users involved in the design processLets see a short demonstration of how – with all your users working from a single source of product data – collaboration becomes a natural part of the design process
  • Lets now look in more detail at how your designers who use CAD – and other users who use Microsoft Office - can collaborate more easily to complete design projects fasterFor Cad users Teamcenter Express supports:Secure vaulting, and version and revision management of CAD documentsSearching the cPDM database directly from CAD with graphical previews of the parts foundDisplay status of all parts referenced in an assembly - Alerting designers to changes being made that may impact their workAnd integrated release managementThis enables designers to collaborate more effectively throughout the design processLets see a demonstration of a CAD to cPDM integration – in this example we will use the “Solid Edge Embedded Client” – the integration between Siemen’s Solid Edge CAD software and Teamcenter Express
  • Teamcenter Express also offers specific integration with Microsoft Office 2007 – for example with Word and Excel – this enables the users who utilize these applications to integrate their data into the single source of product data maintained by Teamcenter ExpressSome of the capabilities include:Searching the cPDM database directly from Microsoft Office applicationsIntegrating Microsoft Office documents into the single source of product dataAnd Managing Microsoft Office template filesThis enables all your users to collaborate effectively throughout the design process
  • Another capability that enables more effective collaboration is the integration between Teamcenter Express and Microsoft Outlook 2007 - this enables workflow assignments created in Teamcenter Express to be rapidly communicated to your users through their standard email interface – and provides them with direct access to the workflow tasks and associated documentsLets see a quick demonstration of how users of Microsoft Office applications can improve their collaboration throughout the design process
  • Lets look at how a Teamcenter Express customer - Back-Tech in Austria - has been able to improve their collaboration with Teamcenter Express This small manufacturing company develops and produces machinery used by commercial and industrial bakeries.A new design project begins with the layout of the entire project in Teamcenter Express - typically several designers work on one project simultaneously - with Teamcenter Express automatically handling the access and revision control - Designers’ time that used to be spent on tedious data management tasks has been almost completely eliminated.Another increase in efficiency – even more than Back-Tech had hoped for initially – is due to increased re-use of previously designed parts. These are not only easier to find, but they can be adapted to a new project with little effort on the part of the designer. Thanks to Teamcenter Express, Back-Tech is closer to fulfilling its mission of being one of the leading system suppliers in the field of small baked goods.
  • Manufacturers need efficient and accurate release of product information to manufacturing, and easy access to product data for shop floor usersThe solution is a single source of product data that supports:Electronic workflows for timely and accurate release of product data to manufacturing Visualization tools that clearly communicate design intent and enable rapid feedback of manufacturing issuesFast and easy retrieval of the correct design data on the shop floorUsing these techniques manufacturers can improve collaboration between their design and manufacturing departments, speed the completion of design-through-manufacturing projects and reduce errors and rework in manufacturing
  • Teamcenter Express incorporates preconfigured workflows for releasing design data to manufacturing that are best on industry best practicesThese electronic workflows ensure that users are immediately notified of required actions – and that all relevant users are notified of the final releaseAn audit trail is maintained for all workflow events, including the user, date and time and the action performedUsing these workflows ensures improved collaboration between all users involved in the release process – resulting in consistent and accurate release of design data to manufacturing
  • Teamcenter Express users can take advantage of the optional Project scheduling module to link their Project Schedules with product data and processes in the Teamcenter Express database - enhancing collaboration within the project team and giving the Project Manager increased control over his resources and schedules, and enabling him to identify and avoid bottlenecks earlier than by conventional methods.The Teamcenter Express Schedule Manager option is an embedded application, ensuring a tight connection at the data, user interface, resource and process levels. Teamcenter Express Project Schedules can be synchronized with data held in Microsoft Project enabling a variety of different strategies to manage multiple projects and programs in a dispersed environment.Note: 2 AVI demos are available on SalesCentre/Partner portal for this subject ID = 13622 and 13623
  • Teamcenter Express incorporates Teamcenter Lifecycle Visualization – the best-in-class solution for visualization, collaboration and design review using the JT lightweight format for 3D models - and visualizing many other 2D and 3D files in their native file formatOrganizations that work in a multi-CAD environment can perform analysis on multi-CAD 3D assemblies without requiring access to a CAD systemUsers in both design and manufacturing can collaborate more easily – based on easy access to data that was created in many different formats
  • Teamcenter Express has an optional shop floor viewer client that provides easy access to product data for shop floor usersUsers such as machine operators and assembly team leaders can quickly search for part information, analyze 3D models and print 2D documents, ensuring that they have the correct data for their manufacturing processesThe benefit is improved collaboration between design & manufacturing and less errors and rework in the manufacturing process
  • An example of a smaller manufacturing company that has used Teamcenter Express to improve collaboration between their design & manufacturing departments is SchattiThis manufacturer of mechanisms for the furniture industry has its main design & manufacturing plant in Switzerland and another manufacturing plant in BulgariaSchatti has been able to increase its product quality and productivity through improved collaboration based around Teamcenter Express
  • Today’s manufacturers need to work more efficiently and accurately with globally distributed suppliers and customers – and with their engineers in the fieldA Collaborative product data management solution provides excellent tools to meet these needs including :Broad access for remote users such as field engineers using easily deployed web clientsRendering of multi-CAD data into neutral, lightweight formats for easy visualization and analysis by external usersEasily accessible tools that enable suppliers and customers to participate in design reviewsUsing these techniques manufacturers can improve collaboration with their suppliers and customers - resulting in better quality designs and improved customer responsiveness
  • Manufacturing organizations need controlled but easy access to the single source of product data for remote users such as field engineers – and for your office based staff when they are traveling to meet with suppliers and customersTeamcenter Express meets these needs by providing these capabilities:An easily deployed web client – you just need a web browser and internet access to connect to the databaseProduct data is secured from unauthorized accessSearch for parts, view 2D documents and 3D CAD modelsUsers can still participate in workflowsUsing these capabilities remote users can gain access to the single source of product data and work more effectively with suppliers and customers
  • Remote users need comprehensive capabilities for visualizing and analyzing 2D documents and 3D CAD modelsTeamcenter Express supportsDynamic viewing and markup of 2D Office documents and 3D CAD documents3D visualization includes measurement, dimensioning and cross-sectioning capabilitiesThese comprehensive visualization capabilities are supported by all client types including the rich (or windows) client, and web and shop floor viewer clientsUsers can view and analyze a wide variety of document types using all Teamcenter Express client interfaces
  • Today’s SMBs operate in a mixed landscape of different CAD tools, data and design practices - both within the organization and with their suppliers and customersTeamcenter Express supports these organizations who work in a Multi-CAD environmentWith proven CAD integration options from the Teamcenter portfolio These CAD integrations include check-in/check-out, search and retrieval, and product structure management for all major CAD systemsThese capabilities ensure that SMBs have the flexibility to manage CAD data from legacy applications, customers & suppliers - enabling best-in-class collaboration irrespective of the source of data
