Integrated Material Management
Create innovative, sustainable products and enable material-driven product design
As the design and performance of products across all industries become more and more complex, companies must enter the next frontier of product innovation: material-driven product design and engineering.
Material information and how it’s managed can have a profound effect on your product’s lifecycle, and often plays a role in the success of the product. Consider that many of today’s innovative designs owe their success to the revolutionary use and discovery of new materials – from lightweight mobile telephones and tablets, to electric vehicles, to advanced aircraft, to green energy equipment (wind turbines, solar, etc.), to medical devices. In this age of material-driven product design, it is critical to manage the lifecycle of all the required materials so that your company can create innovative, sustainable products.
Validate Material Use throughout the Product Lifecycle
Teamcenter manages material engineering property data throughout the product lifecycle. You can design innovative products with materials in mind, then optimize and validate the use of materials from engineering analysis and simulation through manufacturing. By providing approved material information enterprise-wide through material lifecycle management, Teamcenter helps you make the right decisions to reduce development costs and improve product quality.
Transform Material Data into True Product Intelligence
If you are using a standalone material property management system, consider the advantage of integrating material management with PLM. Your current system might be meeting your need to capture, store and interrogate material test data, but these massive volumes of data are often isolated and inaccessible to decision-makers throughout the product lifecycle. With Teamcenter, you can link the lifecycle of the material data with the lifecycle of the product. Integrated material management transforms material data into true product intelligence, so you can make smarter decisions about materials.
