  • Requirements gathering & analysis Design, Development & Testing of software applications for the specific project requirement
  • The UGS vision is to bridge these gaps by facilitating PLM integration via the Teamcenter Manufacturing Backbone. The backbone will act as a bridge in the current PLM gaps by enabling a collaborative environment with other PLM applications along with enterprise integration with business applications, such as ERP. By taking this path, the shop floor becomes an integral part of the PLM process and removes the barriers to achieving greater levels of innovation.
